Rod and Lucinda Heikell’s West Aegean covers the coasts and islands near Athens, the adjacent islands in the Cyclades and the Eastern Peloponnisos to Monemvasia. Also covered is the mainland coast of Greece from Sounion to Volos and the adjacent coast of Evia, and the Northern Sporades including Skíathos and Skópelos.
West Aegean is a companion guide which provides details of places that are mentioned only lightly in Greek Waters Pilot. It is particularly useful for charterers, flotilla sailors and others based in the area. There is in depth information on getting around, places to visit on land and background information which cover topics ranging from food and wine to Greece’s Classical past and ancient sites.
Rod and Lu Heikell’s writing is acclaimed and their pilotage notes, supported by plans and photographs many of which have been taken by Lu, are regarded as the last word on the areas that they cover.
