The last decade, honeymoon sailing Greece
has taken a real spin and indeed for very good reasons. Even on a tight budget it is possibly to charter your own floating palace and sail the romantic islands of the Aegean. Also the islands are ideal for honeymoon sailing trips, because of the vast amount of archaeological sites that bring the ancient Greeks alive and certainly stir the imagination when you wander around the excavated ruins. For this reason the Dodecanese
and the Cycladic islands
are best suited and are very scenic and delightful, especially in the early months of the sailing season (April-June) when the islands are covered with spring flowers. Many prefer the Dodecanese since here you have the opportunity to experience your honeymoon sailing on a gulet, the local wooden motorsailer
, which is an extremely romantic way of transportation. Gulets emanate from Bodrum and hence also cover the nearby Turkish coastline (Turquoise coast)
, but here instead of a gulet cruise the proper name is a Blue voyage or Blue cruise
! Honeymoon sailing Greece
can also be done without the luxury of a hired crew (hostess, captain, cook) if you have sufficient experience to skipper the yacht yourself. The advantage is of course total privacy, yet you will have to clean the cabin and galley yourself, but working together on your honeymoon is perhaps the perfect test :-)
For bareboat honeymoon sailing in Greece
: Jeanneau, Bavaria, Ocean Star and Oceanis are the obvious choices among the various yacht types.
The photo shows our sailboat in what is likely to be one of the most stunning anchorages in the Ionian or in the Aegean Sea: Diaporos island on Chalkidiki, Northern Greece during a glorious, most romantic sunset. Also view a photo of this pristine anchorage in the other direction.
