If you have chartered your Enaviga yacht to jump aboard in Athens. Take a look at our itinerary below, it may help with some of the places you wish to stop.
If you have never been to Athens before and have time before you hop aboard. A visit to the Acroplois is a must.
Once you are ready to set sail, your first destination is Aegina.
Aegina is about 15nm from Athens. It’s an attractive island that has several interesting historic sites to visit. Take a trip to visit the temple of Aphaia and visit the fruit boats near to the church Agios Nikolaios. A great place to stock up on fresh provisions.
Aegina Harbour can become crowded, especially at weekends. There is another harbour and 3 good anchorages to moor at if you’d prefer.
The next day set sail for Poros.
As you sail towards Poros keep your eyes and nose peeled for the sulphuric smelling Methana. This dormant volcano will be on your starboard side.
Heading into Poros lagoon you will need to keep a watchful eye for the ferries and hydrofoils. Once you are in the lagoon you can stop at some beautiful anchorages for a swim stop and lunch.
Contine a further 2 miles into the lagoon and the town of Poros will be to the East. It’s a lovely village with a harbour lined with cafes, restaurants and shops. Walk up the hillside when it is cool and enjoy the views.
The next day you will be sailing to Palaia Epidavros, which is also known as Archaia Epidavros.
To get there you will need to leave Poros Lagoon and sail around the Methana peninsula.
Once you have moored in the fishing village you will need to image how it once was. With settlements dating back to 1100BC this area provided 25 ships for the Trojan war.
The following day sail to Korfus.
Watching out for dolphins as you sail. Choose to anchor or stay on one of the restaurants pontoons. There is a small shingle beach if you wish to do more than people watch at this port of call.
The next stop over is the quiet island of Agistri.
This is a picture postcard Greek village of cobbled streets and whitewashed houses. Be wary when coming into the harbour as anywhere other than the North is very shallow. A fantastic place to stroll, drink retsina and people watch.
The next day sail to Aegina.
Another pretty fishing village, that attracts day visitors from Athens. Enjoy fresh fish at one of the many restaurants overlooking the waterfront. A local speciality to buy on Perdika are locally grown pistachio nuts. As you are sailing back to the yacht charter base in Athens on the final day of your trip. Keep your eyes peeled on Aegina for the pistachio orchards along the west and north coast of the island.
