Thessaly Region

Thessaly Sailing Holidays

Thessaly is a region of Greek mainland and it lies in central Greece, which makes it a unique sailing destination, different from the islands which are very popular among tourists.

The most impressive site in Thessaly is Meteora, located in the heart of Greece, with huge rocks standing in the middle of a valley and monasteries constructed on top of them. For those looking for a more leisure sailing holiday, the most gorgeous beaches of Thessaly can be found on the eastern side of the Pelion Peninsula, with their exotic blue water and wild nature.

Yacht Charter in Thessaly

Charter your bareboat or skippered sailing yacht in the Gulf of Volos, whose gentle winds and magnificent scenery make for a perfect sailing holiday. From there you can sail to the Sporades, an archipelago on the east coast, consisting of 24 islands, among which Skiathos is the most interesting and worth exploring. Its Lalaria Beach will leave you breathless.

Sailing on a yacht in Thessaly is very relaxing due to gentle winds, so you can cruise all year round, with high season being in July and August.
