Sailing trip in Volos

The bay of Pagasitikos is a circular bay. It is surrounded by Mount Pelion. Near the bay, there is an exit to the Aegean Sea. 

 

Pelion is a land of incredible beauty. There is a high mountain with rich fauna and flora. Tourists can relax on the stunning beaches. 

 

The Gulf of Pagasitikos is ideal for relaxing sailing. There is a relatively calm sea, light winds that blow from Pelion. Sailing is popular here. It will give you the opportunity to discover the beauty of the many unspoiled coves with their turquoise waters. 

 

You can sail on a yacht on the waters of Tsastheni or Nisa. You will remember this walk for a long time. We suggest trying local delicacies. Pelion's signature dish specialfay is served in Kato Gatsea or Afissos. Fresh tuna tastes best in Cottes. We suggest trying crayfish spaghetti on the small island of Trikeri.
