Content: I’m Jennifer, an island girl from the island of Malta, with a gypsy, bohemian soul... attracted by colours and all that is simple, wild and free. And what could be wilder than the sea ?! I ’m here sharing my 7 day itinerary in Greece on a sailing boat. I’m a mermaid and was born for beaches and sunny days, so if you’re like me, I can already tell you that visiting Greece on a sailing boat is a totally different thing then just landing there. You get to avoid the touristic, more expensive and crowded places to enjoy more paradisiaque beaches all for yourself !! I am travelling with another 8 persons, we left from Malta to Athens airport where we arrived at 17:00, there we found a taxi waiting for us that drove us to Palairos.

In palairos we found a yact that we had previously hired for one week with Mediterranean Charters. Palairos is lovely, the beach is fully organised with beach bar and free chairs and umbrellas you just need to buy a bottle of water, 55euro cents!!! Beach is beautiful and water is crystal clear... Greece Please if you haven’t yet thought about it!

Content: We spent the night in palairos and the next morning the captain sailed to Lefkada. Lefkas is beautiful, crystal clear waters and the beauty of travelling the Greek islands by yact is that you can get to the best beaches, plenty of them here. Once in Lefkas we went to ellomenio to see a small waterfall and enjoy a mango fresh smoothie at the bar just at the entrance of the waterfall... call them tropical VIBEZ 😜😜

Content: All the restaurants at Lefkas are really cheap, and if you are a fan of grilled fish like me, you will love this island, in the evening we went to see the beautiful sunset and then we chilled in a bar... it seems that the place doesn’t know of covid_19, Bars full, music on...it was what we were longing for. Bar hopping, island life and Cheers to a crazy night! We love you Greece 🥰😘

In the morning we had a breakfast on board our boat and after that we spent the day there on the island, beach and restaurant hopping . Later on in the night we went to the bars. I ate a lovely grilled sea bass, fish is just mouthwatering in Greece! And if you’re a fan of colours like me... you’ll be taking photos with every wall, table and chair as they are all so beautifully coloured! After a good lunch we went to swim at a beach that is only ten min away from the marina and we stayed there until sunset. Then in the evening we went to shower on the boat and came out again for dinner.

Content: Today we came to Corfu, I’m sure the name is not new to you. It’s a beautiful island in the northwest coast. It’s totally amazing, we spent a day here beach hopping with the sailing boat, it wasn’t enough as the water here is so beautifully turquoise. Today the captain doesn’t plan to enter the marina so we will spend the day between the blues 😜💙MEMORABLE ! Beaches are a beautiful mix of colours, Beautiful turquoise clean water, surrounded by greenery. Amazing, during the day the men on the boat were fishing and 💚💙at noon we grilled some fish that they caught... a tasty grilled lunch 😍

Content: We spent the day here, swimming, hopping from beach to another. We watched the beautiful sunset from the boat and in the night we slept somewhere in the middle of the sea under the starts. The beauty of a holiday on a boat is that you feel completely detached, waking up to beautiful sunsets and sleeping under the stars... amazing, in the night we cooked dinner and played some group games on the boat. Beautiful island vibes 🥰

Content: Today we came to Parga, long sail from where we were before and sea was a bit rough. Captain docked at the marina so we could come down to enjoy the lovely beaches and visit the Venetian castle alongside the wonderful colourful traditional houses. I would say that this Place is very touristic so it’s more expensive than the other islands. Food at restaurants and also at supermarket costs more and I wouldn’t recommend buying souvenirs and gifts from here as they are more expensive. Prices are here the normal prices as in any other Western European country whereas on the other Greek island I visited prices were much cheaper. A bottle of natural water costs just 55euro cent from everywhere, even a beautiful beachside resort. So during the day we spent our time swimming... just want to make sure I fly back to my country sun kissed 😋

Content: For the golden hour we climbed up the hill to watch the sunset from the Castle of Parga, you can reach the Venetian castle, through narrow alleys starting from the port of Parga. Built in 1792 by the Venetians, the Castle of Parga is a must see... yes the way up is a bit steep, but the view from the top is worth all the way up the hill! Avoid heels as the hill up has some slippery pavement. Enjoy the view !

In Parga the captain docked at the marina and we went to have lunch at the Panorma Restaurant. The restaurant is just at the waterfront so it has a fantastic view, very good fast service and food is not expensive at all. Well in palairos you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to good, cheap restaurants !

It’s a beautiful, huge beach... the water is beautiful and clear however of course not the best compared to other beaches we sailed to. The beach is surrounded by beautiful green hills and we stayed there till the evening. Oh, no.... I can’t believe I already have to wave goodbye to the beautiful, sunny Greek beach days 🥺 will miss you for sure Greece !
