Greece is listed as the most stunning sailing destination in the world, ranking number one out of the top ten compiled by LLM, a British luxury lifestyle magazine.
According to Natasha Heard of LLM, Greece, with its islands, offers a variety of boating conditions, 'from the sheltered waters of the Ionian Sea to the more challenging Aegean Sea. Several different types of accommodation are available, from camping on remote beaches to luxury villas to residing on board your vessel.'
'There are several different routes you can take when yachting around Greece. One option is to start in Athens and sail down to the Peloponnese peninsula before heading out to the islands, while another popular route is to start in Athens and head west to Corfu before island-hopping your way down through the Ionian Sea. Whichever route you choose, you’ll be sure to enjoy stunning scenery, clear blue waters, and plenty of chances to explore ashore.'
