Blue skies, enchanting waters and breath-taking scenery – no it’s not Comino’s Blue Lagoon, but our Mediterranean neighbour, Greece. The archipelago has an approximate 6,000 islands spread across the Ionian and Aegean Sea, which makes the destination an exciting prospect for all sailing fanatics.
With so many unknown treasures ready to be explored on each island, we don’t blame your confusion about which places to navigate to. Luckily for you, we’re about to give prominence to some extraordinary spots you can wander to whilst island hopping across the Greek archipelago. Each one offers something spectacular that the one before doesn’t. Ensure you travel with a large crew to get some well-deserved rest whilst sailing from one island to another.

As your boat gets close to this island, you’ll realise why they call it the island of pines. The greenery standing in front of you knows its origin thanks to one man who planted 100,000 pine trees across his lands and gave them away to the locals on his death. This heroic deed transformed Spetses into the idyllic paradise it is today. Take a night off boat duty and enjoy an open-air cinematic experience unlike no other at the Cine Tatiana with mezes fit for a king.
