People sailed the seas and oceans since ancient times, even before. At first, they practiced sailing out of necessity. Today, more and more people board sailing boats for pleasure.
The reasons for that are almost uncountable, especially for passionate sailors. If you still aren’t one, the following points won’t fail to convince you to become a seafarer. And Halkidiki is as good a destination as many for that. And better than most.
Reason 1: Absolute freedom
Sailing grants you more freedom than you can imagine. Where are many people, there are many barriers. And on the open sea, there are none. Hence, you are free to act as you wish without limitations. Party all night long or relax in utmost serenity. Everything is up to you, and only you.
Reason 2: Unforgettable scenery
Many people arrive to the seaside to admire its beauty among everything else. But few of them take a look from a different perspective. For you on the yacht, the coastline reveals itself from the best possible perspective. Just imagine the Halkidiki coast, abounding with pine forests, sandy beaches, mountains and gorgeous monasteries of Mount Athos.
Reason 3: Only sailors know the best spots
You can explore the coastline far and wide from ashore. And still you will know only a little part of what an average sailor knows. That is because secret spots are often inaccessible except from the sea. In regard to that, don’t most people imagine a perfect vacation on an empty beach? And Halkidiki has such beaches.
Reason 4: The best diving
You can dive wherever you happen to be. But the sea world is always more engaging and interesting if you put some distance between the shore and yourself. Out there, you are much more likely to spot octopuses, sponges and a myriad of colorful fish.
Reason 5: Most romantic sunsets
Finally, summer is the time of romance. And what can be more romantic than a sunset casting warm shades in the ideal setting away from everyone?
