There isn’t really a definitive answer regarding which is the best Greek island to visit with your boat charter as each island has something unique to offer. If you want to be privy to some of the most sensational sunsets in the Mediterranean, Santorini is the spot for you. The magnificent views and luxurious atmosphere of the island make it especially popular with honeymooners or couples looking for a romantic getaway. It also has a number of spectacular natural wonders, none more impressive than the underwater volcano that still simmers away to this day.
If Ancient Greek culture fascinates you, Crete is the island for you. The excavations at Knossos, which was at the heart of the Minoan civilisation are some of the most well known in Greece and many of the finds are now on display in the Archaeology Museum of Heraklion. Ancient architecture is not all that Crete is good for though. It is also one of the best places to visit if you’re searching for secluded coves and hiking trails. The best beaches include those such as Preveli, Potamos, and Elafonissi.
If you want to visit some of the best beaches in the Mediterranean, Zakynthos is a good bet. Shipwreck Beach, so called for the shipwreck that lies in the middle, is only accessible by boat, making it fairly secluded, in spite of its popularity. The Blue Caves at Cape Skinari are another reason to visit Zakynthos. Visit them and marvel at the seemingly neon glow of the light reflecting off the water onto the walls.
If you want to party, however, you should go to Mykonos. While this island is every bit as beautiful as the other islands listed here, Mykonos is primarily known for its party scene, consisting mostly of beach clubs with lively dance music.
The weather in Greece, following the Mediterranean climate, from May to October is sublime. For those who enjoy scorching temperatures, visit in July and August when temperatures are 30°C+ and you can cool off in the pleasant sea waters.
The Meltemi wind usually blows in a northerly direction during the summer and can sometimes reach powerful wind forces depending on the area. This is worth researching, as areas in Greece vary. For example, in the Ionian Islands, the wind force in July and August ranges from 4-6, whereas in the Cyclades the wind force averages from 5-7.
Our yacht rentals are based all over Greece. You can start your yacht charter in the majestic and powerfully historic city of Athens, or alternatively, fly directly to an international island airport and go from there.
In Athens, you can rent a yacht in Marina Kalamaki, just 10 km away from Athens city centre.
In Mykonos, you can rent a yacht in ports such as Tourlos Marina, Ornos and Platis Gialos Harbour.
We also rent yachts in the Cyclades and Ionian Islands, as well as the Saronic Gulf.
One of the top benefits of sailing Greek waters is that often you are not required to pay a mooring fee! Occasionally, the local authorities may ask you to pay a small fee of around $20 for vessels sized 38 ft and under.
