Packed with beauty and breathtaking imagery, Greece is one country that has carved its name into every traveler’s top wanderlust list.
Sun, sea and sand. They’re the three things that we use as shorthand for a relaxing holiday break. And sun, sea and sand are just what the amazing beaches of Greece offer to those enjoying a Greek island cruise aboard the Glaros.
Whether your idea of a beautiful day at the beach involves tranquility, wildlife or water sports. Captain Cliff and the crew know exactly which destinations to head for. So let’s set sail and see exactly what awaits beach goers on one of our chartered cruises.
When travel organizations, newspapers and holiday companies compile their list of the best beaches in the world. Ionian beaches are always well represented. Especially in lists that focus on peace, quiet and tranquility.
Even the most avid beach goer knows that a day spent surrounded by playing children. Sunbathing tourists and ice-cream sellers can be frustrating when it should be relaxing. So what better place to spend a sunny afternoon. Than on a beach so secluded and so private that it can only be accessed from the sea?
Aboard the Glaros we have a list of secret beaches. Where we can moor the boat, put you ashore and leave you to a day of quiet relaxation. Then you can board the yacht for a beautifully cooked meal and continue the journey to your next destination.
For some of you, the mere thought of spending all day sitting on a sun lounger. With nothing to do but lose yourself in a book bores you to tears. You’d rather be experiencing a seaside adventure than topping up your tan!
If you’re looking for excitement, then we can recommend a selection of other beaches. Where you can enjoy action on the waves, below the waves and even above the waves! From surfing or snorkeling to soaring above the pristine beaches on a paragliding trip. We’ll hunt down every water sports adventure the Ionian Islands have to offer. Then deliver you to the beaches where fun in the sun awaits you.
The final secret behind the popularity of Greek beaches. Is the fact that they’re not just visited by holidaymakers of the human variety. If you’re interested in the wonders of the natural world. Then we’ll introduce you to some very special local residents.
