YACHT CHARTER, greek islands.
Gulf islands are among the Athenians favorite resorts as they
are located close to the capital. Each one of the five islands
has its own character and color. The varied landscape and ancient
archeological sites are a magnet for both Greeks and visitors
from abroad. The
Saronic islands of Aegina, Poros, Angistri, Hydra, Dokos, Spetses
and the Peloponnesian coast offer smooth sailing sheltered from
strong winds. Here, the Meltemi (winds from the North, usually
strong especially in July and August) does not blow as regularly
as it does in the Cyclades or the Dodecanese, if it does blow
from North to North East, its strength is usually about force
4-5, it is normally less around the Methana peninsula and Poros.
If the Meltemi does not blow, the
wind is generally from the South, force 2-3. In the Hydra Gulf
and Argolic Gulf, the wind is mostly from the South East, blowing
force 3-5 dying down at night.
According to legend, Aegina was named after
the daughter of Asopos. She was kidnapped by Zeus who brought
her to the then, uninhabited island. There, they bore a son named
Aiakos, who later became king of the island. The archeological
record shows the island to have been inhabited since the Neolithic
period and is thought to be the birthplace of the poet, Aristophanis.
The works of Pausanios state
that the temples of Aphrodite, Apollo, Artemis, Dionisos and
Asklipios were located near the harbor. A pillar has been recovered
from the temple of Apollo (Doric period - 6th century B.C.).
It can be seen on the small picturesque hill named Kolonas.
The most important archeological site is located on the east
of the island near Agia Marina where the temple of Aphaia is
to be found. Aphaia is an ancient goddess and protector of the
Poros is a volcanic island which was created
from the joining of Kalavria and Sveria. It is located very
close to Argolida in the Peloponnese, separated only by a very
narrow channel. The ancient ruins of the Temple of Poseidon
are to found 5 km from the main town, on the road to the monastery
of Zoodochos Pighis. The temple was built in the 6th century
B.C. According to legend, this is where Dimosthenis drank the
"konio" poison and died.
The town of Poros is built
in keeping with Greek island tradition with blue and white colors.
On the road to Neorio there are numerous small inlets with sandy
beaches and pine trees which almost reach the sea. Approaching
the island from the sea provides an unforgettable view. On the
other side of the town, small boats take visitors to Argolida,
where there is a large lemon orchard.
Spetses is located at the entrance of the Argolikos bay. The
island has been inhabited since 2,000 B.C. and ancient ruins
have been found at Agia Marina along with clay utensils and
idols. In ancient times the island was called "Pytiousa" since
it was covered with pine trees. Today, the island is famous
its unique architecture, picturesque mansions and varied landscape.
Also of note is the landscape with a beautiful combination of
pine trees, rocks, sand and sea. Motor vehicles are not allowed
on the island and the most popular means of transport are by
horse and cart or bicycle.
The most famous sites are
the mansion of Bouboulina, the heroine of the 1821 revolution
along with the mansion of Mexis which has now been turned into
a museum. Also of note is the church of Agia Marina. Among the
beaches on the island, the most well known are Agii Anargyri
and Agia Paraskevi.
