Yacht Charter Moudania

On a Nea Moudania yacht charter with Borrow a Boat you can explore the Chalkidiki Peninsula and nearby Greek islands to your hearts content. Whatever you want from a Northern Greece yacht charter, from its cuisine, to beaches, culture and deep human history, a Nea Moudania Halkidiki sailing holiday is going to be an unforgettable experience.

A major fishing port on the Halkidiki Peninsula close to the western 'finger' Kassandra, Nea Moudania has recently diversified into a tourism hub. While the port still brings tens of thousands of tonnes of fish ashore every year, Nea Moudania Beach is one of those spots that you'll come to love on your Northern Greece sailing holiday.

As well as its beautiful sandy beach, Nea Moudania has all the things you'd expect from a nice little holiday resort. The seafront tavernas naturally do great fish dishes - if you can make it there for July the annual Sardine Festival comes with grilled sardines sold by the bucketload! You can dance off your dinner with the great nightlife that, while nothing as crazy as Mykonos in the Cyclades, is certainly well organised and fun.

For a long time, a secondary port to Thessaloniki the small town has a port that can take larger vessels - to include luxury yacht in the outer harbour - and around 100 smaller yachts and boats on the inner harbour. For you, your Nea Moudania yacht charter holiday is a gateway to exploring the Chalkidiki peninsula and nearby island chains such as the Dodecanese, Sporades and Cyclades. Let's look at what you might find sailing from Nea Moudania Halkidiki in the next section.

Explore Nea Moudania By Renting A Yacht

Nea Moudania sits just north of the three 'fingers' of the Chalkidiki Peninsula. Kassandra to the south is the westernmost finger and has a very well developed tourist economy. Sithonia, the middle finger is less so. Both have beautiful beaches and you can enjoy a mix of hedonism and escapism as you choose.

On Sithonia lies the ancient monastic nation of Mount Athos that has been only for men to visit since Byzantine times. Despite the modern age and equality, women can still only see this 10km long area of monasteries, forts and churches from afar. Men who wish to visit can be one of 10 non-Orthodox visitors and 100 Orthodox visitors daily - €30 buys you a pass that you must arrange in advance. Women can see Mount Athos on their boat rental but not if the planned itinerary involves docking there.

Between Sithonia and Kassandra is the small, uninhabited Kelyfos Island. For those who enjoy diving and snorkelling, or just a swim in the crystal water to see it all from above, this is a tiny paradise worth a stop. There are a number of reefs and a wide array of marine life that live around them.

On your bareboat yacht charter or skippered yacht charter may wish to explore further northeast. Thassos is the nearest inhabited Greek island. Very like Halkidiki it is laid back and a great spot to chill out on a sandy beach. Only accessible by yacht or ferry, the island is certainly worth a visit on your sailing trip.

Within a week or two's boat rental cruise from Nea Moudania Halkidiki you will be able to reach the Greek islands of the Sporades, Cyclades and Dodecanese. Your Chalkidiki yacht rental puts these and mainland Greece within range. Book your Nea Moudania yacht charter with Borrow a Boat today!

Suggested Sailing Routes From Nea Moudania

On your Nea Moudania sailing holiday you can explore northern Greece, the Chalkidiki Peninsula and Kavala as well as Thassos or Northern Sporades as a sailing destination on a shorter Aegean Sea holiday. On a longer sailing trip on your charter yacht you can head south to the Cyclades on your crewed yacht charter or luxury yacht. Here are a couple of sailing itineraries to consider.

7 days - Sporades Islands: Heading SW your first port on your motorboat or sailing boat would be the Sporades island of Skiathos where you can enjoy the sandy beaches and quaint Skiathos Town. The next day can be spent exploring the south coast in the lee of the Meltemi before heading on to Skopelos (where the Mamma Mia movie was filmed) and then to Alonnisos. After enjoying the east coast of the island and the marine nature reserve you can island hop back to Sithonia with a stopover at Kelyfos Island between Kassandra and Sithonia before returning to Porto Koufo or Porto Carras Marina.

14 days - the northern Cyclades: This is a nice journey of island hopping, firstly through the Northern Sporades Islands and then to the southern Sporades island of Skyros, before on the island of Euboea at Karystos with its medieval castles and beautiful beaches. From there you can easily access the northern Cyclades - the islands of Andros, Tinos and Siros are just offshore.

Best Times To Hire A Yacht In Nea Moudania

The sailing season runs from late April to October with July and August being the busiest months for yacht charter. This is ironic as July and August can be the worst times to sail! Both extremely hot air temperatures and often hazardous Meltemi winds can make for big winds sailing when you honestly just want to hide from the heat.

The sea is cooler - often quite chilly - at the beginning of the sailing season but it is not uncommon to see rainfall in Spring. As the days lengthen you will still see green fields and flowers in May and the winds can be quite benign too. Combined with the crowds being smaller, May to early June are the sweet spot for a Chalkidiki Peninsula yacht charter.

Come September and October the seas are still like a warm bath. With the air temperatures falling from fierce to just comfortably hot, this could well be the time to come sailing from Halkidiki.

September-October: The seas remain warm and the Meltemi eases. These months can be the best time of year to sailas the temperatures are often in the comfortable low to mid 20s.
