Located conveniently close to Athens, the Saronic Gulf packs amazing variety into a few islands. Go back in time on Hydra, where donkeys are still their main form of transport. Forget about cars, a donkey ride is the quintessential way to see the town. Water-ski around the coast of Poros or jump ashore for a quad biking adventure. While on Spetses, take a ride in a classical horse and carriage on the way to feast on some freshly caught calamari. Then there’s Dokos. Beautiful, untouched Dokos. Bathe in the sun’s rays by day then sleep under starlit sky in a secluded bay by night. Aegina’s tavernas cannot be forgotten either and are a must visit for a drink or two. These breathtaking islands guarantee the authentic Mediterranean experience.

Its azure blue waters lap the shores of over 6000 Greek Islands and all these generations on, sailing remains the quintessential way to explore them.

Weigh anchor and go swimming in a secluded cove, visit white-washed villages, and feast on the freshest Greek food. After a day of discovery, what better way to unwind than laying back on the beach to marvel at the Greek sunset with the crackle of a nearby campfire on the beach. For those not quite ready to turn in, Greece’s famous nightlife awaits. The Greek Islands hold countless hidden treasures for the keen traveller to discover.
