Sailing holidays in Greece can be an experience of a lifetime for many people and no one needs to be an expert sailor in order to spend their time on a boat. The Greek Islands are perfect for people who want to explore the history of the area as well as people who want to spend their time relaxing in the sun and the sand at one of the numerous beaches.
There are many good things about sailing holidays including the fact that people can spend as much time on their boat as they wish. They can also decide to move on to another area whenever they want instead of being restricted by an existing itinerary and hotel reservations.
Every part of the Mediterranean looks different depending on where a person is and while it is all beautiful, many people will find that they love certain areas more than others, especially when seeing panoramic views from a boat. Some people may want to see the scenery of Elafonisi Beach from their boat with all of the dunes, cedar trees and white lilies while others may want to have the city of Athens as their backdrop when they wake up every morning.
Hydra is a little island that is part of Greece and the harbor area caters to tourists with multiple restaurants, shops, markets and galleries. It is quite simple to get to the harbor of Hydra by boat on sailing holidays and experience this unique island personally. People who want to leave the harbor area will find that they will need to walk along the stone lined streets, because cars are not allowed on the island. There are many mansions on the island that now serve as schools and the Lazarus Kountouriotis mansion is part of the National Museum of History. It contains collections of furniture from the 18th century. Lazarus Kountouriotis was the richest sea captain on the island and his tomb can be found at the Monastery of the Dormition of the Virgin.
People who take the time to venture to the Mediterranean and the Greek Islands for their sailing holidays will be amazed at how wonderful this experience can be. Everyone can take advantage of the quietness of the open water while on the boat without worrying about not seeing anyone for days at a time. No one is ever bored on sailing holidays, because they can choose where they go each day and they can spend as much time at each destination as they would like.
