Saronic gulf

The closest set of islands to Athens, some bypass them for perennial favourites Mykonos and Santorini. But not you. Truth is, the Saronic Gulf islands offer everything you could want from an adventure-packed holiday in Greece.
Recharge in the densely forested haven of Poros, drop anchor at isolated coves in Aegina, or walk the car-free streets of beautiful Hydra.

Think pistachio nuts, horse-drawn carriages, a Venetian castle, neoclassical architecture, imposing ancient ruins, white Orthodox churches, lovely beaches and warm water. Aegina is in easy reach of the islands of Kea, Kythnos, Poros and Hydra, making it a great choice for a stopover.


Sailing down the narrow straits between Poros and the Peloponessos feels like sailing down a river or one of Venice’s canals. Boats are anchored in forested coves, swimmers splash about in the clear water and people sip drinks and tuck into food at the tavernas lining the shore.


Built in the shape of an amphitheatre on a slope overlooking the Argosaronic gulf, Hydra offers a sublime welcome as you sail towards her in your luxury yacht. This beautiful temptress has long lured international celebrities and wealthy Greeks with her charms.


A two-and-a-half-hour sail from Athens, Spetses offers elegant architecture, luxurious amenities and secluded beaches and coves. Chugging into the historic port aboard your luxury yacht, you’ll be greeted by the century-old Poseidonion Grand Hotel, a popular haunt of movie icons such as Elizabeth Taylor and Marilyn Monroe.


From here, the views over the turquoise Argolic Gulf are truly spectacular. Sail past the fortified islet in the harbour, built by the Venetians in 1473, and marvel at its turrets and tiny windows.
