Lavrion - a perfect startingport for sailing with your charteryacht to the greek cyclades islands in the blue aegaean sea!
Lavrion is located
on the very
southeast part of the Athenīs peninsula.
The village of Lavrion itself is not very attractive, it is a fishermenīs and industrial harbour.
is one of a few pleasureboat Marinas in Greece, but it seems, that the management does not do very well or is interested in the prosperity and development of this Marina. Places for Yachts there are VERY expensive, but the "life" inside the Marina does not exist at all! Nearly no offices and shops are rented and so it looks unused, empty and dead and gives an impression of a "ghost-town" not only in wintertime... a pity...
However, itīs a very safe marina, so many private owners have their boats here. If one is happy with a "parking lot"§ for his boat, he might be satisfied. If one looks for "Marina life", he will not be happy and concentrate on town-port.(which is the nice thing in greek ports anyway - what is moire attractiove for a sailor than watching and enjoying the daily life of a port from his boat!?? (even, if itsīa little noise, often, but thatīs real life...)
The Chartercompanies mostly work from the old and alive port of Lavrion.
Often, cheap flight to Athens make it necessary to stay one night in a Hotel before the sailing trip to the Cyclades starts or after return. The advantage of Athens is the possibility to visit Acropolis and see the famous party area of Plaka, and maybe go shopping.
The advantage of Lavrion: quiteness!
(only) one Hotel located about 5 km from Lavrion to the direction Cape
Sounion, and that is the only one, that
can be recommended.
There is a small Taverna named Akrogianni located on the small beach (indeed, there are 2 or 3, but we tried this one, and it was simple, but very good food at reasonable prices!), and on windy days or in spring or autumn, when itīs a little fresh outside, one can sit inside.
