Each new day brings another island to explore

Set sail from Mykonos and explore the wonderful islands of Santorini, Naxos  and Paros amongst others before sailing back into Mykonos at the end of your first week. Explore the vibrant cosmopolitan island of Mykonos before leaving the yacht or, better still, continue for a second week of sailing. From here we will visit the islands of Syros, Kithnos and Andros to name but a few, before sailing back towards Mykonos.

About the vessels

Our yachts, Christiana VII and Malama, are the perfect vessels for your Greek sailing adventure, with 4 double cabins, all with en-suite facilities. A maximum of eight guests are on board, together with an experienced, professional crew of a skipper and hostess to look after you. Breakfast and a light lunch is included, to be enjoyed on deck whilst anchored in an idyllic bay. Enjoy a refreshing swim before or after lunch, the choice is yours.

A voyage of discovery

After a day on the water with the wind in your hair, enjoy a sun-downer on deck before exploring the local area. We like to reach harbour in the afternoon so there’s plenty of time to relax, go sightseeing or swimming before choosing a waterside taverna for dinner. Sample the local specialities, which vary from island to island and make this a voyage of culinary discovery as well as exploring the historical and cultural delights of these beautiful islands.

Itinerary for Santorini Route 

  • Mykonos: This unique island oozes chic and traditional charm in equal measure. Mykonos is one of the most popular islands in the Aegean and this island paradise has great beaches, great shopping, fabulous food and endless nightlife.
  • Naxos (22 nm): Sailing from Mykonos we stop for a swim before continuing our sailing to Naxos, largest and most fertile island in the Cyclades. It’s fascinating town is dominated by an imposing Venetian castle.
  • Ios (26 nm): Well known as a party island, Ios has something for everyone – great beaches and bars in the evening after a late afternoon trip to the reputed site of Homer’s tomb
  • Santorini (25 nm): Santorini is probably the most photographed destination in the Mediterranean, and sailing through the caldera is a breathtaking experience.
  • Folegandros (27 nm): After the hustle and bustle of Santorini, Folegandros is a wonderfully relaxing island. Take an evening trip to the Chora, with more spectacular views of the Aegean
  • Paros (32 nm): Naoussa on the north of the island is our favourite – great chill out bars and a beautiful little fishing harbour as the backdrop to the sunset.
  • Mykonos (25 nm): Back to Mykonos at the end of the week, with time for a cocktail with your feet in the water in the old town.

    Andros Route

    Sailing alternate weeks from the 5th May to 20th October 2018

    • Mykonos: Arrivals and Departures. Great nightlife, iconic photo opportunities, great beaches – a fantastic island to start your adventure.
    • Syros (20 nm): Syros is the capital of the Cyclades and a lively cosmopolitan town of some size that retains much of its former splendour combined with present day charm.
    • Kithnos (28 nm): We stop on the western side of Kithnos in Merihas after a swim in the beautiful bay close to the sandy beach of Kolona.
    • Kea (22 nm): We stop for the night in Korissia, a tranquil port in a large bay. Take a bus or cab trip to the pretty hill-top village or take a sunset stroll along the long beach before dinner.
    • Andros (24 nm): Batsi is a beautiful little town on the western side of Andros, with a long beach, conveniently studded with tavernas and bars.
    • Tinos (27 nm): Todays destination is the capital of Tinos, famed for our Lady of Tinos, the church located above the main town. Our Lady of Tinos is considered a protectress of Seafarers, and is therefore a fitting stop on our route!
    • Mykonos (10 nm): Our tour of the northern Cyclades comes to an end with a short sail south to Mykonos. Still time to explore Mykonos town, or for those who have already been, a final afternoon on the beach at nearby Agios Stefanos, with a leisurely meal right on the shore.
