DAY 2 : Aegina Town (17nm). Traditional harbour with shops, bars and restaurants.

DAY 4 : Poros Town (22nm). Lively harbour with a long quayside full of bars and tavernas.
DAY 5 : Porto Heli (30nm) is in a large bay with excellent shelter. Moor at the long quayside or anchor in the bay.
DAY 6 : Navplion (21nm). Elegant Ventian town with& a 13th century castle - well worth the walk up for the view.
DAY 7 : Leonidhion (23nm). Friendly little harbour with shop and tavernas.
DAY 8 : Monemvasia (29nm) s a humpbacked island with an old walled Byzantine town, being sympathetically restored. Climb to the top for a spectacular view. Down below the lower town and fishing harbour have also been restored into a charming mix of Byzantine, Venetian and Turkish architecture.
DAY 9 : Kiparissa (15nm). Spectacular setting in the mountains.
DAY 10 : Spetse (22nm). Choose from several anchorages on the north west coast. This island was the home of John Fowles when he wrote his famous novel “The Magus”.
DAY 11 : Hydra (15nm) is one of the most picturesque harbours in Greece. Discover the traditional restaurants away from the harbour-front. Visit the Sunset bar for stunning views across to Spetses. Raft up if necessary but put a tripping line on your anchor - the harbour is renown for fouled anchors!
DAY 12 : Perdika, Aegina (25nm). Anchor in the bay and go ashore for an excellent seafood dinner.
DAY 13 : Return to Kalamaki Marina (20nm).
