Yachting & Boating World (ybw.com), a site for avid sailers and travelers, ranked the Greek islands as one of the best sailing destinations in the world, due to the favorable summer climate, large number of islands, variety in island activities, and excellent cuisine to provide a great lunch or dinner break for any worn out yachter.
This is what they had to say about Greece:
“A collection of 6000 largely uninhabited islands, the Greek Islands are a great place to take to the seas and soak in the warmth of the Mediterranean sun. Set sail for Symi to enjoy the neoclassical harbour, moor down in Mykonos for an evening of late night revelry or cast your anchor anywhere to enjoy one of the world’s finest cuisines. You’ll find a great selection of restaurants scattered across the islands so make sure your pockets are full with plenty of euro exchange.”
Other top sailing destinations included the Bahamas, a favorite for Americans, New Zealand, which boasts more boats per capita than any other country, and Thailand, which features clear waters and pristine beaches.
