Thessaloniki’s proximity to the sea offers an alternative way of transportation both to the famous nearby tourism destination of Chalkidiki and the beautiful Sporades group of Islands. During the summer, you can rent a sailing boat and embark from Thessaloniki Marina (see map) to live an unique experience visiting beaches and bays that you cannot reach in any other way. If you don’t have sailing license (two of them are required for renting a sailing boat), you can also hire a professional skipper that will guide through your holidays.
In Chalkidiki you will also be able to moor your sailing boat in one of the marinas (see map) or in any of the plenty ports, which are ready to offer you all you need such as supplies, restaurants, shopping etc.
These are some Thessaloniki sailing boat companies where you can look for renting your boat.
