Though relatively new to the charter scene, the Eastern Mediterranean is a superb charter yacht region. With its prolific scattering of islands and atmospheric cities, Croatia’s Adriatic shore is tailor-made for sheltered cruising; in Greece, a vast coastline steeped in ancient maritime folklore makes it a challenge just to narrow down a preferred archipelago; and on Turkey’s Aegean coast, the fusion of east and west creates a unique and exciting dynamic. For those left cold by mainstream tourist hotspots, the cultural authenticity of the Eastern Mediterranean is very special indeed.
The strength of the East Mediterranean can be summed-up in a one word : eclecticism. As birthplace of western civilisation and modern thought, the Greek islands are a compulsory stop for those who want to explore the East Mediterranean coasts in a cultural way. Sacred temples, breathtaking scenery, and thousands of unique anchorages are awaiting your curiosity. Greece’s mainland is also a highly rich location, with the world famous Acropolis in Athens, and her unique museum dedicated to all her ancient treasures. Both Croatia and Montenegro are prolific in their hidden, exclusive, and precious coastlines, which have amazed for centuries. But most certainly those seeking for an active nightlife would select the Turkish Riviera. Each location offers distinct and diverse experiences with spectacular churches, medieval villages and sunny vineyards that will enchant anyone that visits. Join the Turquoise Coastline of Southern Turkey or the famous Anatolia region and her spectacular rock chimneys and hot water sources; cruise along Croatia, nation bequeathed by the legacies of the Romans and Hapsburgs, a picturesque country straight out of an eastern European folk tale, offering fortified castles and crystal waters to all those ready to explore!
