Rod 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 Skiathos and Skopelos.
West Aegean is a companion guide for charterers and flotilla sailors and provides details of places that are mentioned only lightly in Greek Waters Pilot. In particular there is in depth tourist information including tips 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 Heikell's writing is acclaimed and his pilotage notes, supported by plans and photographs many of which have been taken by his wife Lu, are regarded as the last word on the areas that they cover.
West Aegean is in the same series as Ionian and East Aegean.
