Greece, often known as the cradle of Western civilisation, is located in southern Europe and shares borders with Macedonia, Albania, Bulgaria and Turkey. It is one of the most popular sailing destinations in the Mediterranean. The mountainous rocky landscape surrounded by pine trees at higher altitudes, the olive-studded coastline, the beautiful sandy and pebbly beaches with turquoise sea, the excellent Greek cuisine and a wide range of water sports are the reasons that convince us to choose Greece as our summer destination. The seas surrounding Greece are the Aegean Sea to the East, the Ionian Sea to the West and the Mediterranean Sea to the South.
The mountainous and rocky soil, which was difficult to cultivate, made the Greeks excellent sailors who travelled to distant lands. With 13,676 km of coastline, Greece has the longest coastline in the Mediterranean and the 11th longest coastline in the world, with 1,400 unique islands, 227 of which are inhabited.
