Climate in Greece
Greece calls you back tirelessly for different charter experiences in a climate suitable for cruises 7 months of the year (April-October). The months of July/August are the height of summer with temperatures that can exceed 30°. This period also corresponds to the summer holidays, which means that marinas are quite crowded and it is difficult to get the luxury yacht of your choice (the most popular boats will have been booked a year in advance). You should also be aware that some regions have a wind season. For example, it will be preferable to avoid cruises in the Cyclades in July/August because of the Meltémi, which is extremely strong at this time.
