5 reasons why Halkidiki is a great destination for sailing

Sailing is a generator of positive emotions by itself. Whenever you spend time on board a sailing yacht, you enjoy limitless opportunities. Nothing restrains you in any regard.

The only real challenge relates to making the decision where you should set yourself sail. If you choose Halkidiki in North Greece, you’ll lack nothing because everything is nearby. Many beaches, small ports, the city of Thessaloniki and diverse nature are just a few of the region’s assets.

1.  Clear and warm waters

The region of Halkidiki is famous for exceptional purity of its waters. This fact becomes especially obvious when you plunge into the underwater world. The visibility down there is above average.

More so, the temperature of the sea is excellent, even past the summer season. So, you can’t exaggerate by stating that the recipe for a great sailing vacation is Halkidiki.

2.  Beaches for every taste

You are a fan of partying all night long on the beach? Or you prefer to spend nights on board a yacht and days on beaches? Guess what – you have plenty of each throughout the Halkidiki seaside.

For the former, head to Kallithea on the northeast coast of the Kassandra Peninsula. For the latter, explore wherever the wind takes you.

3.  Diverse scenery

Finding a perfect spot for taking photos is a matter of fact. Sail around Kassandra to admire peaceful villages with fishing boats in their harbors. Raise your sails around Sithonia to marvel at wooded hills dominated by Mount Itamos.

Get around Athos for unique views of monasteries by the sea or atop cliffs.

4.  Long sailing season

The sailing season in the Aegean Sea starts roughly in April and ends in November. Which means that you can enjoy lower prices and find emptier harbors well before and after the high season.

In addition, winds are generally light, and you won’t have ‘Meltemi‘ winds getting in your way.

5.  Calm sea

Most of the season, the Aegean Sea around the region of Halkidiki is very calm. In general, you are very unlikely to have trouble with large waves.

Hence, Halkidiki is your excellent bet if you don’t like rough seas.
