Top sailing destinations near Macedonia


Thasos is a Greek island in the northern Aegean Sea, close to the coast of Thrace and the plain of the river Nestos. Thasos is very close to the coasts of the mainland. It is known amongst yachtsmen as an island with crystal beaches and lush greenery, ideal for family and relaxing holidays. The main reason why yachtsmen love to anchor in Thasos is the islands beaches which are simply amazing. The island holds beautiful organized beaches, but it also has a number of secluded ones which are perfect for exploring by a yacht. The islands landscape is great for trekking with paths leading to abandoned places, castle ruins and caves.The most interesting place to visit on Thassos is the Ancient Agora, while the Monastery of Archangel Michael offers the most beautiful view of the Aegean Sea.

Mount Athos

Mount Athos is a mountain and peninsula in Greece. A World Heritage Site and autonomous polity in the Hellenic Republic, and a destination that people like to call “The Holy Mountain”. Mount Athos is the oldest surviving monastic community in the world. It dates back more than a thousand years, to Byzantine times, and because of its isolation, it has remained one of the most unspoiled parts of Greece. Yachtsmen find this peninsula an ideal sailing destination because the landscape is stunning and wild, and because it is a land where myth is entwined with history. A land with savage mountain scenery reflecting on the dark blue sea  which creates that essential framework of isolation in a peaceful, solitary world, chosen by the hermits for their monastic state.
