Sailing in Greece
The best way to travel in Greece is by sail boat.
Whether you’re here to poke around ancient ruins, soak in the sun on idyllic beaches, or party till you drop, Greece will leave you clamoring for more.
By sailing you get to places that very few other people ever see. You view everything from a different perspective.
Sailing from island to island, you’ll spend plenty of time ashore exploring villages and historic sites.
Spend lazy days swimming and snorkeling in secluded anchorages and enjoy delicious Greek food in the waterfront tavernas that you’ll find in every picturesque fishing village that you stop at. If lively nightlife is of interest, you’ll find plenty on offer.
Why Sail in Greece?
Many people think that sailing is an expensive activity. Well, it’s not. Forget about ferries, hotels. You choose your route! By chartering a sailboat the only thing you need is wind and sunscreen!
Sailing is simply a very fun thing to do because there are so many things to do once you left the harbor. You can go fishing, diving, sunbathing, or simply cruise along.
Sailing in Greece can be the best thing you do this year so get out here and just do it!
Kalamaki Marina is one of the largest charter bases in the East Mediterranean Sea. It is located 12 kilometres away from Athens. It is connected with Athens historical centre (Acropolis, Parthenon, Plaka old town, etc.) and with Piraeus, the main port for ferries, departuring to all the Aegean islands, Cyclades and Dodecanese.
HOW TO REACH OUR ALIMOS BASE
The Athens International Airport is approximately 40km from the marina. Getting there is very easy. You can either take a public bus or a taxi. The public bus runs on a 24hr basis and leaves every 20-25 minutes. Duration is approx. 90 minutes.
The taxi is certainly the most convenient solution and costs approximately 40-45 Euro.
A pre-arranged transfer can also be provided by SailWays at a small extra cost.
There is a variety of restaurants around which some can make deliveries too.
Hot water showers and toilets at 80m distance from the yachts and water and 220V power is available.
Fuel is delivered by a tanker.
A few banks are located within 350 meters distance.
An unguarded car parking area is available too, though we suggest cars are parked in front of the port police on the marina or -better- at a small street outside the marina.
