A boutique festival experience staged amongst the stunning Saronic islands. Swim in bright blue waters, sip ouzo in the sun, ride a donkey around the ruins of Hydra and dance all day at a white party. With something to cater to every taste–Greece Athens route truly is an all rounder.
I met people from everywhere, I danced until morning, I fell asleep under the stars, I laughed a lot. I have never enjoyed myself so much in my entire life.
This is an example route. A detailed itinerary of your week will be released 2 weeks before the event.
Alimos is one of the biggest marinas in Greece and serves as a starting point for the route. The coastline is home to many quirky restaurants and beautiful beach clubs hosting parties for thousands of guests in summer. The journey from Athens International Airport to Alimos marina takes approximately 40 minutes. It is served by a dense transportation network of trams, buses and taxis, with stations 500 meters from the marina.
Aegina is 27 km or 18 nautical miles from Athens and is famous for its pistachio nuts. An extinct volcano constitutes two thirds of this gorgeous island, resulting in the landscape being a beautiful mix of rugged peaks and crystal clear waters. The Blue Route sets sail to Agia Marina, Aegina on the first night–a favourite summer destination for Greeks & tourists due to its proximity to mainland Greece.
The small town of Ermioni is located on a stunning peninsula in the centre of the Saronics. As Yacht Week enthusiasts, it’s likely you've watched the trailer, scrolled through the photo albums, and would have stumbled across the famous white day party! In a newly renovated Cavo Bianco, we sip strawberry mojitos and dance the day away in the presence of our legendary TYW DJs.
The beautifully sheltered Porto Heli is home to the luxurious Nikki Beach Resort & Spa. Here White & Blue routes combine for a spectacular day together. Relax on a lounge bed, order some delicious lunch. Then head to the lavish pool bar with a tropical cocktail jug and enjoy the sun along with 400 other Yacht Weekers.
A very special part of The Yacht Week Greece is spending the night in a natural bay near Dokos, an island populated by Orthodox monks and sheep herders. Here we raft side by side, bask in the afternoon sun at one of our famous floating day parties. The night is yours to enjoy as you wish; have dinner on deck with your crew, yacht hopp and mingle with other guests or sleep beneath the shooting stars.
The true gem of the Saronic route, Hydra is the definition of tranquility and relaxation. No cars. No scooters. Just tiny cobbled lanes and donkeys. Hydra sits below a steep mountain slope in a sheltered bay offering breathtaking views. With all day to explore the beautiful town, throw on the runners and go for a hike to viewpoint, wander through the winding paths, with gorgeous stores selling handmade sterling silver jewelry, swimwear and clothing. Snack on delicious gelato, ice-cold fresh orange juice, gyros and pastries from traditional family run bakeries.
Originally built in the shape of an amphitheatre, Poros hosts a lively waterfront and is famous for its stunning beaches. Sip on an ice-cold strawberry daiquiri whilst cooling off in the shallows.The waterfront where our yachts are docked is adorned with shops selling beautiful clothing, sterling silver jewelry and bits and pieces you may find useful along the trip. Indulge in a traditional Greek feast at Oasis Taverna and other bakeries where the spinach and feta spanakopita is an absolute must.
Lavrio Marina is a starting point for the route and is a small port town well versed in feeding hungry sailors and helping them stock up in the local supermarkets. The marina is a 30-45 minute transfer from Athens Airport.
The quaint little island of Spetses is the perfect place for walks along the narrow cobbled streets admiring the elegant mansions dotted along the waterfront. Spetses is famous for its beautiful hidden beaches so it's definitely worth dropping anchor here.

Yes, we read your mind…
The exact routes are set a few weeks before the event starts. As soon as the routes are set, you will be able to view it on your booking. If you are booking with other yachts, you must ensure all yachts are booked from the same marina to ensure your group will remain together for the duration of the week.
Yachts on the White Route will depart from Lavrio marina and yachts on the Blue Route from Alimos marina.
We recommend getting to Alimos Marina between 12pm- 2pm, as we set sail in the afternoon (Between 15:00 - 18:00) and would hate for you to miss the evening festivities on Aegina. It will also give you time to check in with us, and head out for provision shopping before you're given access to your yacht. If this isn't possible due to flights, please communicate this with your skipper before you arrive. You will get back to the marina on Friday afternoon and check out and leave the yacht by 9am on Saturday morning.
