A private yacht charter vacation in Greece is an experience of a lifetime. But to explore the Cycladic Islands by luxury yacht is a dream come true. Drink in the views of white-washed, sugar cube houses perched in the hills of picture-postcard Greek towns, amongst windmills and church domes painted in vibrant bright blue. Explore hundreds of secluded Cycladic beaches and peaceful anchorages where an afternoon can be spent snorkeling crystalline waters and sunbathing in privacy before cruising onward for a romantic supper under the stars. Talking of night time, sunset over Santorini is an ethereal experience perhaps best witnessed from the deck of your charter, whilst fabulous Mykonos boasts some of the most glamorous nightlife the Mediterranean has to offer.
For those keen on sailing in Greece, the warm and northerly Meltemi winds are more than accommodating, blowing along the Aegean Sea during the summer months and creating spectacular sailing conditions. With over 200 islands making up the Cycladic Islands, what makes this region particularly special for those visiting by private yacht charter is that there is a secluded corner and a quiet, private anchorage for everyone – even in peak season. For all the hustle of bustle of cosmopolitan Oia and glamorous Chora, you can go off the beaten track and lose yourself for an hour, a day, a week in Folegandros, Serifos and Koufonisia. So if your dreams of a yacht charter in Greece are all about unspoiled views, rustic charm, and utter peace and privacy, the Cyclades are for you.
Paros, known for its beaches and traditional villages, is one of the most popular of the Cycladic islands. Spend an afternoon in Paroikia and visit Panagia Ekatontapiliani, a Byzantine church built in the 4th century A.D. Naoussa is a picturesque fishing harbor on the northeast of the island filled with seafood restaurants, bars and coffee shops. Enjoy a swim at Kolimbithres, an impressive beach where naturally sculpted rocks form swimming coves.
Antiparos is a small, charming island, which over the years has turned into the “it” summer destination for Athenians. It is perfectly situated for daytrips to neighbouring secluded islands offering a range of bays to discover. Spend the day on Despotiko island, just a few miles away and return to Antiparos for a delicious late lunch at Captain Pipino’s taverna in Agios Georgios with the freshest seafood on the island. At night wander along the town’s main alley and enjoy an ice cream at Vicky’s.
Koufonisia, meaning “Hollow islands” consist of two small islets Pano (upper) and Kato (lower) Koufonisi. Kato Koufonisi is an uninhabited island accessible only by boat. This hidden gem has some of the most magnificent beaches in Greece, offering a range of secluded harbors to enjoy in privacy. With only 400 inhabitants, Pano Koufonisi, is a tiny island where it seems that time has stopped. Pori is the most beautiful beach on the island; enjoy a great lunch at taverna Kalofeggo.
Milos, is a volcanic island with unique geological and rock formations and stunning beaches with turquoise waters. It has one of the best harbors in the Medietreranean sea, which was formed when the sea broke into the volcano’s crater on the island's north-west side. Kleftiko and Sarakiniko are the island’s most famous beaches. Kleftiko used to be an old pirate hide-out and can only be reached by boat.
