I have been on several sailing holidays in Coatia where we have chartered yachts and enjoyed sailing around the islands. We are thinking of a change of scenery and wanted to know peoples views on Greece and a destination.

Is it all very touristy or is plenty of it still unspoilt?

Have any of you been before and can you tell me what it is like?

Thanks in advance for any relevent info.

I went with SailingHolidays to the Ionian last year & I wouldn't describe it as touristy at all - with the possible exception of Vassiliki. Small harbours (one where the 'shop' was a glass fronted fridge outside the bar / restaurant ), mainly cheap food & beer. Highly recommended.

Lovely area. Try to avoid August as the Italians swarm over to the Ionian in their motor cruisers usually complete with Mama whose main job appears to be washing down the decks and hoovering the inside!

The Ionian region is affected by the strong northern winds in July and August. Therefore, instead of looking at those sides, I would also like to refer to Dodecanese for Greece. 
You can also rent a gulet in Croatia for July and August. 
Turkey would be great choice for blue voyage holiday between May and October. You can swim in May because the sea water temperature will be 20 degrees on average..
