Can there be a more fun and suitable activity in Greece than sailing? It is almost impossible to visit the Greek islands and not experience sailing. It can either be taking the ferry to the island or taking a local boat tour. Other tourists prefer to charter yachts and have autonomy in their activities. It is a real pleasure to get on board in Greece and go to the open sea to see the big blue and feel the fresh breeze. You can try boat tours in almost any Greek island. The most famous are the volcano boat trip in Santorini, the boat tour to the Shipwreck Beach in Zakynthos and the tour to Lalaria Beach in Skiathos.
