6 days discovering the North Aegean on a luxury yacht

6 days discovering the North Aegean on a luxury yacht

1 of 6 1/6
Superyacht destination Limnos
Day 1


If you are chartering a superyacht in Greece then you should consider visiting the North Aegean. The area tends to be slightly off the main tourist routes, which means coastline is less crowded, the towns less rowdy while the water quality, scenery and history is just as spectacular.

Chartering in the Dodecanese islands or exploring the Cyclades by superyacht may be better known options but the North Agean offers some of the best beaches in Greece combined with lively ports and cultural sites to enjoy.

Day 1: Limnos

You can fly to Limnos (sometimes called Lemnos) direct from Athens, or London Gatwick (seasonal.)

The port of Myrina is worth exploring on foot; numerous shaded alleys and roads reveal small shops, pleasant cafes and a castle. Inland there are some excellent ruins and a museum that explains the many layers of history to be found here, from the present right back to Stone Age times. The island also features in many ancient myths – it was reputed to be the site of Aphrodite’s first infidelity – and later an island solely populated by women, who gave Jason’s Argonauts quite a welcome. There are many good beaches here, and being slightly off the tourist trail, you’ll find few crowds.
