Leg 1

Aegina

As the departure and arrival point for your cruise, Aegina is the island of pistachios and artists. You can stroll through the typical little streets of the village or watch the fishermen tending their nets along the harbour. Aegina is full of terraces and small traditional tavernas, the ideal place to get your holiday off to a good start. If you have the time, visit the holy places and the ancient temple of Aphaia, or take a dip in the blue-green waters of Sarpa Beach.
Aegina

Leg 2

Poros

An essential stopover for all boats in the Saronic Islands, Poros is a natural harbour built into the narrow channel between the coast and the Peloponnese. The village is typical, with a predominance of white and ochre, and stretches across the slopes of a hill that slopes down to the sea. While most of the local life takes place in the port, the climb up to the clock tower is well worth the effort, as you come across one or two typical tavernas in the shade of the trees in a small square.

Leg 3

Ermioni

Ermioni is a charming little fishing village, a spit of land terminated by a pine forest that juts out into the sea, giving it an island feel. A simple, authentic village that offers visitors the chance to enjoy the sea and the sun. There's plenty of charm at sunset, as you stroll among the pastel-coloured houses and take an extra dip in the sea from the rocks on the peninsula to the south of the village.
Its simplicity and authenticity make Ermioni a hidden paradise, offering the romantic magic of Greece you've always dreamed of.

Leg 4

Hydra

With its amphitheatre-shaped village, Hydra is a beautiful little paradise that offers visitors a journey back in time. The island is home to one of Greece's most picturesque villages. Lose yourself in the cobbled streets and take in the colourful buildings. Donkeys wait patiently for their loads, because Hydra is unique in that there are no cars. Life is concentrated almost entirely around the quays, with a bevy of cafés, restaurants and boutiques. The atmosphere is quite chic and trendy on this island, which has attracted many artists, including Leonard Cohen.

Leg 5

Dokos

Located just a stone's throw from Hydra, Dokos is almost deserted and the spectacular bay of Skindos offers superb anchorages set against a backdrop of ancient olive trees. The spot is ideal for diving, paddle-boarding, or just enjoying the mildness of the place, and to land there for the night. We anchor in the turquoise water near a beach with a small chapel and goats, as is often the case in Greece. In the evening, barbecue on the deck of the boat overlooking the sea, with a breathtaking view of the sunset.

Leg 6

Vathi

The tiny port of Vathi is a fishermen's shelter on the west coast of the volcanic Methana peninsula. Above the village of Kaimeni is the volcano, which has covered much of the village in lava and ash. You can get there on foot from the port. The path to the crater, carved out of the lava, offers a great climbing experience. You can follow the flow of lava into the sea with your eyes, enjoying panoramic views of the surrounding Saronic islands and a spectacular sunset that paints the lava red once again. We really like this spot, a little off the beaten track.
Vathi

Leg 7

Epidavros

Situated 8km to the east of the archaeological site of Epidaurus, this small seaside resort with its pretty, typical port is sure to enchant you with its beaches, cafés and waterside tavernas. In ancient times, the port welcomed pilgrims who came to consult the priests at the sanctuary of Asclepius, which today is best known for its theatre, one of the most remarkable sites in ancient Greece and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The great theatre, built in the 4th century BC and seating around 12,000 spectators, was constructed with mathematical precision and extraordinary balance, giving it near-perfect natural acoustics. At the time, it was just one part of what was one of the most important sanctuaries in the ancient world, dedicated to Asclepios (the god of healing), considered to be the birthplace of medicine.

Alex è stato davvero formidabile, ottimo capitano, capace di risolvere qualsiasi problema, e molto simpatico. Bellissime le isole che abbiamo costeggiato, le calette dove abbiamo dormito in rada e i paesini dove siamo scesi. Un arcipelago che non conoscevo, molto verde e poco turistico. Una bellissima vacanza anche grazie al resto dell'equipaggio! Grazie, un abbraccio

Prima esperienza a vela per noi, ma assolutamente da rifare il prima possibile. Abbiamo passato 8 notti sulla barca di Berntrand, persona fantastica e disponibilissima. Consiglio vivamente quest’ esperienza che ci ha riempito il cuore di emozioni e gli occhi di posti magnifici

Finalmente una vera crociera a vela! Alex, lo skipper, un vero appassionato di mare, ci ha condotto nella navigazione a vela ogni volta che il vento lo permetteva. E' molto esperto, conosce bene le isole ed i ridossi, sa provvedere tempestivamente alle eventuali avarie a bordo. Infonde ottimismo e sicurezza. Incantevoli le notti passate in rada sotto il cielo stellato! Autentiche e poco turistiche le isole del golfo Saronico. Un arcipelago della giusta misura per navigazioni non troppo lunghe tra un'isola e l'altra. Un'esperienza da ripetere e condivedere. Grazie di tutto.
