The first day is the day of embarkation. We will be in the pleasant seaside town of Pylos. You can board from 3pm. We will sleep in the port or anchorage area where we are and we will decide the plan for the next day among the whole group.
The other days we will dedicate to sailing the west coast of the Peloponnese peninsula, and visiting the points of interest in the area designated for this trip. We will head north, passing through the Islet of Proti and enjoying its beaches. We will arrive to the coastal town of Katakolo, from where we can organize an excursion to the archaeological site of Olympia. Finally we will cross to the Island of Zakintos, which will be the end point of our trip.
The Peloponnese is a region where we find the authenticity of Greece. Traditional towns, archaeological remains, beaches with crystalline waters next to charming towns, local production of wine, cheese and honey, and a large dose of history and culture that we can soak up during our tour of this peninsula.
Pylos: it will be the starting point of our sailing trip. Pilos is a picturesque town with a lot of history. It is nestled in a wonderful natural environment, and has a very well protected natural harbour. We will be able to visit fortresses with impressive views over the sea.
Next to Pylos, we find numerous places of interest, such as the Yálova Lagoon, a refuge for migratory birds and a place of great ecological interest. It is located next to Voidokiliá Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in Greece.
In addition, a few kilometers from Pylos, there are natural waterfalls that form 15 lakes. Another of the hidden treasures of the Peloponnese.
Zakinthos Island is part of the Ionian Islands, famous for the natural beauty of its beaches. On the island of Zakynthos it is also known for being a place where you can see the loggerhead turtle, which is in danger of extinction. There is a population of these turtles that has chosen this island to live and reproduce, so we can easily see some.
On this trip, there is no fixed itinerary marked out, but an area to discover, and we will do it at our own pace, according to what the whole group feels like and the pace set by the weather.
