A yacht charter or superyacht cruise to Greece offers stunning white sands, incredible scenery, delectable food and a rich and diverse history, but here are ten hidden gems often missed on even the best Greece yacht charter itinerary.
Shipwreck Beach, Zakynthos
Navagio Beach is otherwise known as Shipwreck Beach, home to the MV Panayiotis which beached here in October of 1980. The wreck is surrounded by the electric blue water and sugar-soft sands.
Zakynthos Beach, Zakynthos
Further down the coast are the beach to the South of the island, which act as a breeding ground for the endangered Loggerhead turtles, as well as the critically endangered sea daffodil. A resident population of the critically endangered Mediterranean monk seal is also present on the West coast of the island.
Sarakiniko Beach, Milos
On the southeast part of Milos is Sarakiniko, a lush white beach peppered with volcanic rocks and cyan waters. A mysterious beach, the volcanic activity and erosion make for a truly memorable view.
Cove of Kleftiko, Milos
The white cliffs and coves of Kleftiko are known as the ‘Meteora of the Sea’ and are only accessible by boat or tender. ‘Kleftiko’ translates as ‘bandit’ as a result of the caves being popular with smugglers throughout history. The crystal-clear waters make for great snorkelling and swimming.
Ammoudi Fish Tavern, Ammoudi
The quayside taverna is backed by red volcanic cliffs overlooking the incredible Byzantine Oia castle, where the freshest fish is plucked straight from the boats in the bay’s tiny fishing port under the starlight.
Oia’s Sunset, Oia, Santorini
A must see, is when the sun sets in the white city of Oia. Overlooking the Aegean Sea, the city hosts turquoise domes, doors and windows amidst the white washed walls. The sunset here will take your breath away, and leave you with the most incredible memories.
Toula’s Seaside Restaurant, Kerkira, Corfu
Sat on the shores of Agni’s beach is a seaside restaurant offering a gastronomic journey of comfort and seaside food. The beautiful setting contrasts spectacularly with the incredible food that is practically begging to be sampled.
A truly peaceful setting, Folegandros will captivate you and your guests with its untouched beauty. Azure waters and rustic architecture delight, with a castle dating back to medieval times.
Located in the Northwest Aegean Sea, the islands are a delight for fish and seafood lovers especially. White-washed towns provide a perfect backdrop for dining on fresh fish served in every traditional tavern here.
Paleokastritska Beach, Corfu
A picturesque village with a delicate cave system and a steep hillside only accessible by foot. The pristine beach is a true treasure here worth the effort. Paleokatritska means ‘old fortress’ and is named after the ruined castle here atop a rocky hilltop overlooking the bay.
