Charter Highlights in The Cyclades Islands, Greece

We have selected three highlights for a charter in the Cyclades so you can get a taste of what this fabulous charter destination has waiting for you.

  • Unique Architecture

    01 Unique Architecture

    Many of the Cyclades Islands exhibit the Greek talent of tailoring its architecture to the natural landscape. A great example of this is the town of Mykonos, where the churches and houses appear to be sculpted from the rocks of the island itself.

  • Sacred Island of Delos

    02 Sacred Island of Delos

    Explore the incredible ruins at legendary birthplace of Apollo, the Island of Delos, which was the political and religious center of the ancient world. Delos was so sacred that birth and death on the island were forbidden, with locals instead being transported to the neighboring Rhenia.

  • Santorini

    03 Santorini

    Often considered the most spectacular of all the Greek islands, Santorini is an ancient volcanic crater, the epicentre of what is probably the largest volcanic eruption in written history. The island remains unique and a true haven of glamorous life.

    Embarkation – Athens
  • Day 2 Kíthnos

    Sail for around an hour to Kíthnos, a rocky island mainly untouched by the typical tourist trails, and anchor at Sand Bar Bay. The locals on this island are welcoming and accustomed to a slower pace of life, making it the perfect spot for a day of relaxation. Visit the island’s medieval-style main town and visit the Holy Trinity Church, and spent the afternoon lounging on the sandy, secluded beaches where your crew will prepare a BBQ in the evening.

  • Day 3 Delos

    Travel back to the peak of Greek antiquity by sailing to the island of Delos, a UNESCO world heritage site, and the center of the Cyclades. It is one of the most important archeological sites in Greece with incredible ruins, such as the Sacred Lake guarded by stone lions, and the Temple of Apollo. After a day of historical exploration, sail the short journey to Mykonos in the evening where you will anchor overnight.

  • Day 4 Mykonos

    Home to some of the trendiest restaurants, beach bars and boutiques in the world, your day on Mykonos provides a welcome change of pace as you live in the lap of luxury.

Here you will enjoy incredible service and daring culinary creations at dinner, as well as one of Mykonos’ best nightlife spots.

  • Day 5 Serifos

    Sail to the island of Serifos, which is off the beaten tourist track and so offers peaceful beaches, perfect for relaxing. Go swimming in its clean waters before enjoying a picnic lunch on the beach prepared by your crew. In the afternoon, walk from the port up the hill to the main town Chora, admiring the charming chapels situated on the slopes on the way up. Once you’ve reached Chora, spend the rest of the day exploring this charming Cycladic town.

    Set sail for the island of Antiparos, and make a stop at the small island Despotiko just off its south coast, where you can go swimming in the secret bay of Mafalda, only accessible by yacht.

    Paros & Antiparos
  • Day 7 Naxos

    There are countless ways you could spend your day on Naxos, the largest and greenest of the Cyclades Islands. Its main town Chora displays a stunning mixture of Cycladic and Medieval architecture, and you can’t miss a visit to the Venetian castle Kastro. Also worth a visit is the marble village Apiranthos, or the traditional Halki Village, and make sure you sample some of Naxos’ wine, famed thanks to its association with the god Dionysus.

  • Day 8 Donoussa

    Make the most of your yacht by visiting Donoussa, the least accessible of the Cyclades Islands, and spend the day escaping from the rest of the world. Visit the island’s secluded caves, Cave of the Wall and the Cave of Fokospilia, which are only accessible by boat, and go swimming or scuba diving in their crystal waters. The island also has several traditional churches and peaceful beaches to explore.

  • Day 9 Amorgos

    Today you will sail to the beautiful island of Amorgos, featured in the classic film 'The Big Blue'. Visit some of its famed sights such as the beautiful Agia Anna beach, hike up to the incredible Monastery of Panagia Hozoviotissa which is built into the face of a rocky mountain, and spend some time in its main village which is home to traditional windmills. Scuba-diving fans can't miss the opportunity to dive around the shipwrecks in Amorgos' seabed.

  • Day 10 Ios

    With its name meaning ‘flower’, the beauty of the island Ios won’t come as a surprise. This popular island has numerous watersports centres at its beaches, so spend the morning having fun kitesurfing and jet-skiing in its crystal waters. In the afternoon, discover Skarkos, the ruins of a Bronze Age settlement, or hike up to the Panagia Gremiotissa church, whose hilltop location will give you some incredible views. Ios also boasts a bustling nightlife.

  • Day 11 Milos

    Spend today on Milos, the island of Aphrodite, and the place where the world-famous statue Venus de Milo was created. In the morning visit the charming town Plaka for some incredible views over the bay which was formed by a volcano eruption. Spend the afternoon at the Melian Hotel Spa, where you can enjoy some sumptuous spa treatments followed by an incredible evening meal and cocktails on the restaurant terrace overlooking the sea.

  • Day 12 Santorini

    Sail to the island of Santorini, also known as Thira, one of the most popular Greek cruising destinations and for good reason. Visit the ruins of the rumoured inspiration behind the legendary lost city of Atlantis, Akrotiri, before visiting the village Oia. Here you can browse countless boutiques, art galleries, and gourmet restaurants. Find a good spot in the evening to witness one of the most breathtaking and romantic sunsets in the world.

  • Day 13 Astypalea

    Visit the butterfly-shaped island of Astypalea, known for its white-washed towns, ancient ruins and picturesque churches. Spend some time exploring its main town before visiting one of the vineyards at the seaside town of Livadia. In the afternoon, go on a guided hike through its old footpaths leading to small chapels and isolated beaches, or go swimming in the island’s crystal waters, before enjoying a drink at the charming Mylos bar.

  • Day 14 Disembarkation - Rhodes

    On your final day of charter head to Rhodes, where you will enjoy a final farewell lunch on board your yacht before disembarking and saying goodbye to your crew. If you can spare an extra day or two, make sure you make the most of all this incredible island has to offer, such as its Medieval Old Town featuring the stunning Palace of Grand Master; the beautiful Acropolis of Lindos; and for nature lovers, the paradisiac Butterfly Valley.
