Weekend in Greece on a sailing boat from Salento is a journey that combines the spirit of adventure with a passion for the sea.
On average, the crossing takes 7 – 8 hours, so you prefer to leave and leave the moorings at dawn to be able to get to Othonoi (the first Greek island) in time to bathe in the beautiful and picturesque setting of the bay of Calypso, that with its unique blue water makes it look like a real aquarium.
The weekend in Greece on a sailing boat from Salento continues on the island of Othonoi being able to visit the interior of its island and why not, having dinner in some typical Greek taverns at a price almost ridiculously and drinking Ouzo, a typical Greek digestive.
Early the next day another sail is waiting for us, this time a couple of hours.
This is the time it takes to reach the neighboring island of Erikoussa; island very different from Othoni but equally beautiful, where you can admire a breathtaking sunset in a kiosk on the cliff.
What to expect from a weekend in Greece on a sailing boat from Salento The end of the weekend in Greece on a sailing boat from Salento ends on Sunday, when after the last dive into the Greek sea, the sailboat crossing is hoisted again to return to Italy and very often meeting dolphins or whales that come to give the last goodbye.
The expectations are those of living three days in contact with nature, with the wind, with the sea and with the sensations and emotions that only a journey of this type can give. Long silences, sunrises and sunsets, but also laughter, toasts and new friendships.
The weekend in Greece on a sailing boat from Salento is a unique journey, very suitable even for those who have never had a sea or boat experience, and it is a great approach to those who have never done this kind of travel. Seeing is believing!
