Zea Marina (Piraeus) – this marina is located at the largest port of Greece, whose history goes back to ancient times. For sailors, this is the starting point to the Aegean Sea, the Saronic Gulf, the island of Crete, as well as the other Greek islands (including those near the shores of Turkey). This marina has 670 berths (up to 80 meters long).
The Saronic Sea is highly recommended for easy sailing, especially in July and August for avoiding the strong winds. Along this route you will find many cosmopolitan towns, ancient temples, Byzantine castles, small fishing ports, unspoiled anchorages and magnificent sandy beaches. Another possible route is that to the Cyclades. This is the central group of islands in the Aegean consisting of 21 main islands and 20 smaller ones. The Cyclades are considered by most to be the most characteristic part of Greece. Charming white houses and windmills, beautiful sunny beaches, ancient ruins, small taverns with good food and wine can be found everywhere.
