Greece has the most islands, over 5,000 if we also take into count the smallest ones. Greece is a place where you can hardly say that you are bored. It is filled with so many hidden gems: golden sandy beaches, caves filled with history, bays with turquoise waters where you can see the undersea for up to 30 meters, Blue Flag certified beaches, historical cities full of traditions, archaeological sites.
The Greek culture has so much to offer, that every time you choose to spend a holiday in Greece you feel like starting over and enjoy a new place each time. On every island you’ll find spectacular places that always manage to entice your senses in a vivid manner. Music, food, hidden places filled with history, villages that preserve the oldest traditions, amusing sea stories.
Greece is the ideal destination for sea and sailing fans. If the Greeks are not sailors, I don’t know who else is, right? Every island with its story, every hidden bay with turquoise waters, every tavern filled with authentic Greek dishes, every well-kept tradition, make this for a one-of-a-kind place!
We have so many examples at hand: Aegina-pistachio island with such a variety of pistachio products that a simple tasting secures your meals for the whole day, Hydra-the capital of the Saronic Islands, time has stood still here and you find donkeys carrying the sea goodies caught by fishermen, Spetes-the island of Greek millionaires; featuring jaw-dropping landforms, forests bordering the sea, coves perfect for anchoring without even a whiff of wind disturbing you, and the famous Zorba who left his memories in his beloved Bubulina’s tavern.
Can we cook on the boat? What are we going to eat? How will it be?
On a sailboat or catamaran there is a central lounge with a fully fitted and equipped kitchen where you can be your own chef (well, if you behave, the skipper may occasionally do his thing in the galley, but be sure to thoroughly wash your hands, as these tend to be finger-licking experiences).
We have yet to receive any complaints about the quality of the food on the boat, as our supplies come straight from the source (namely local farmers, fishermen…) and here the basic daily menu obsessively consists of the following: fresh tomatoes, the tasty ones, pampered by the Greek sun, Greek yogurt, feta cheese, olives, that particular oil that enriches any meal, shells, prawns, octopus, salads and the ever-present Greek pita.
The Galician octopus is a Spanish dish for which the smoked paprika boost its delicious taste and brings out new surprising attributes. When your hunter party gathers 5 pieces, one more beautiful than the other, this truly delicious recipe is a worthy reward. And when the Pikasea team makes its mark on the cooking process, you’ll know we did a truly #fabulous job when you cut the tentacles by fork.
WHAT WILL WE VISIT?
Fun in Russian Bay
Each day of a Pikasea holiday is different from the other, every day we have a new surprise, a new #fabulous experience. And it’s somehow a mystery how every time we are accompanied by the coolest friends, alongside whom there’s never a dull moment. We’ve uploaded a little preview in the video below.
