Berths

Alimos
Arrival to marina, meeting of regatta participants and withdraw of boat numbers. Kalamaki (Alimos) is located 1,5 miles south-east from Palaio Faliro town, half an hour from the Athens airport. Alimos marina is one of the biggest in Greece and accommodates around 60% of the charter fleet.
Methana
This peninsula with two steep volcanic slopes is actually a volcano that emerged from the sea. Take a chance and explore its stunning landscape with dense vegetation, coastal villages and diverse flora and fauna. You can visit Agios Geórgios old fishing village, Pausanias Baths, or take a walk to one of dozens of hot springs, or simply explore ancient city of Méthana. In 1870 one of the best in Greece thermal SPA complexes was opened attracting tourists from all over the world.
Hydra
This beautiful island in the shape of amphitheater considered being one of the most romantic destinations in Greece. Ancient stone mansions, narrow cobblestoned streets, secluded squares. Cars are not allowed on the island, so 500 donkeys are used instead for the public transportation.
Hydra is also loved by sailors, and usually crowded with numerous yachts and boats of different sizes in high season. In 1957 Hydra became well known thanks to the movie “Boy on a Dolphin” with Sophia Loren.
Spetses
A small, lush green island, located at the entrance to the Gulf of Peloponnese. “Spetses” it’s name speaks for itself (spices), as the island is often referred to as "aromatic", due to a huge amount of herbs grown on its territory that used as seasoning. Aprart of that the entire island is covered with pine forests, that make its air clean and healthy. Scooter or bicycle are the only sourse of transportation as you can hardly find any cars.
Spetses also was glorified by English writer John Fowles in his novel 'The Magus', and since that time became one of the most desired destination for the elite. Since ancient times is known as a center of ship construction and even today a beautiful old harbor is full of boats in various stages of construction.
Poros
One of the island bays is called Russian. Russian naval base was located here to help Greece to devolop its navy. Poros is considered the island of Poseidon god of the sea. Evidence of this can be found in ancient literature, as well as the ruins of the Temple of Poseidon in the middle of the island.
Aegina
Here you will find great seafood taverns, beautiful beaches, small fishing villages, popular tourist resorts, cafes, nightlife, archaeological sites and museums, everything you would expect to find on a Greek island and more.
Aegina is the island of the pistachio nuts, called “Fistikia” in Greek. It is the main product of the island and wildly used in local cuisine. The whole island is covered with almond grooves, and grape vines.
