The region

The Saronic Islands are an archipelago named after the Saronic Gulf in which they are located, just off the Greek mainland. Islands in this group include Salamis, Aegina, Agistri, and Poros. The islands of Hydra and Dokos, which lie off the northeast tip of the Peloponnese (technically between the Saronic Gulf and the Argolic Gulf), are sometimes included as part of the Saronic Islands.

Rich with ancient history, art and architectural treasures, and natural beauty, these islands make an ideal location for Offshore's first international program.
