Macedonia Region

Macedonia Sailing Holidays

Macedonia, the largest Greek region, as well as the center of a historic dispute, definitely deserves a visit during your sailing holiday. Charter a yacht in Macedonia and explore this region lying at the crossroads between the Aegean Sea and the Balkans.

Drop your anchor in Nikiti Port in the thrilling Thessaloniki, the region’s capital, and take a walk through the ancient forum or visit Byzantine monuments, such as the city walls, towers and bathhouse, to name a few. Another port city on Macedonia’s southern coastline is Kavala, offering a great range of charter yachts you can choose from. It is formerly known as the “Mecca of tobacco” - we recommend visiting a surprisingly interesting Tobacco Museum, as well as the famous Castle of Kavala.

Yacht Charter in Macedonia

Afterwards, set your sails towards the peninsula of Halkidiki (Chalkidiki), the birthplace of Aristotle, and enjoy the view of amazing sandy coves, long beaches and unspoiled landscapes with lush vegetation. There, you can moor your charter motorboat safely in Porto Koufo, one of the largest natural harbors in Greece, and enjoy the rest of your vacation.

Naturally, the sailing season here is year-round, but it peaks in July and August, so it would be wise to book your berth well in advance.
