When is the best time to sail in Greece

The best time of year to visit Greece on an idyllic sailing vacation is between April-October.

In this blog, we’re shining the spotlight on Greece, one of our favorite sailing destinations. With beautiful islands, exceptional cuisine, secluded beaches only accessible by boat, and a trove of ancient ruins to uncover, there’s something for everyone to fall in love with on a Greek sailing charter.

We’ll be focusing on the best time of year to go to Greece, looking at the weather, cost, and peak season. You can also learn more in our blog on the best time to sail the Mediterranean.

When is the best time of year to go to Greece?

Greece’s sailing season runs between April-October, with the high season being June, July and August, much like our other Mediterranean destinations in Italy and Croatia

Why are June, July and August considered to be the peak season in Greece?

When is the worst time to sail in Greece?

If you’re wondering about the worst time of the year to visit Greece on a sailing charter, we’d avoid the Winter months. Greece experiences colder, wetter and windier weather between November-March, as is common across the whole of Europe. 
Both of our bases in Athens and Corfu close between November-March every year, reopening as the sun begins to shine at the end of March, ready for a sizzling Summer season. Take a look at our blog on the best Winter sun destinations to find amazing alternatives.

Off season VS peak season in Greece

We understand that some people may prefer to avoid the peak season in Greece, but that doesn’t mean you have to compromise on the quality of your idyllic yacht charter. Booking your sailing vacation between April-May or September-October ensures you’ll still have a picture-perfect vacation. 

What are the benefits of booking a yacht charter outside of the peak season in Greece?

Whenever you decide to set sail around Greece, our priority is ensuring you have a safe, smooth and stylish vacation. From our supportive base staff to the comprehensive pre-charter briefing, you can relax in the knowledge that we’re here to look after you.
