We would always recommend the best way to see this coast is on a 7 night cruise but if you really don’t have the time then a mini cruise might be the answer for you.
There are said to be more than 1000 beautiful bays along this coastline. There’s plenty of time to swim every day in the clear turquoise Aegean, surrounded by pine clad mountains.
