Argosaronic Gulf and Eastern Peloponnisos

A peaceful hideaway in the embrace of the Argosaronic Gulf


Consisting of tiny yet delightful islands, only a breath away from the hustle and bustle of Athens. Great scenery and ancient remains scattered around charming landscapes bathed in the sun are the characteristics of the Argosaronic Islands.

Hydra is the most beloved destination for jet-setters and romantics alike; the cobblestone streets and old mansions add to the lovely, traditional atmosphere. Mysterious and alluring, the island of Aegina with the fascinating Temple of Aphea will guide you through secret ancient paths, while in picturesque Poros and rich in naval history Spetses, you will find yourself mesmerized by the sparkling waters and dense pine forests. Do not forget to visit the tiny little paradise of Agistri and find refuge in the turquoise waters of its unspoilt, isolated beaches.

Explore Nafplio, the first capital of modern Greece. You can still sense the medieval magic of Palamidi and Bourtzi Castle. Visit the Gibraltar of the East, Monemvassia, and go on a journey all the way back to the Middle Ages. Go south and you will find one of the most beautiful beaches in Greece, Astros, excellent for watersports and basking in the sun. The spectacular natural harbour of Porto Heli and the visible ruins of the ancient city of Halieis will surely mesmerize you.

The famous light wind also known as meltemi blows here from July to October. The weather patterns here are very mild throughout the year, especially in the spring and autumn, when southerly winds start off at midday and die down at night.
Sailing Tip: Stick close to the Attic coast and let the meltemi guide you to the marinas around Athens. If you are heading down to Poros or Aigina, the winds will turn to the south.
