7 Days in the Cyclades
Your holiday is about to begin !
Depending on whether you are in Athens or Mykonos, the boat can show you all the islands of the Aegean sea.
From Athens you can see below the path proposed :
Your holiday begins when you step aboard your yacht at the Pireaus Marina, near Athens. After a quick tour of the vessel, you are off to Kea, the first island you will visit on your cruise. On the way to Kea, we will anchor in the Bay of Sounion for lunch, a swim and perhaps visit the Temple of Poseidon. Cape Sounioun is the entrance to the Aegean Sea. Leaving the anchorage behind, we proceed on to Kea, a quiet island characterized by small valley with vineyards and orchards between mountainous masses leading to idyllic coves. We will moor at the village of Vourkari.
Today we head for Mykonos, by way of Tinos, where we will stop and anchor for lunch. Tinos is famous for its miracle-working icon of the Virgin Mary. Twice a year the island is the destination for the pilgrimage of Orthodox Christians. Having enjoyed a quiet, relaxing time in Tinos, it is time to go to Mykonos, home of the best bars in all of Greece. Lots of things are said about Mykonos, suffice it to say that it is one place in Greece where time stands still and the night is always young!
Like all visitors to Mykonos, your night has ended at sunrise. You will want to sleep in late and arise to swim and relax on the golden beach of Agia Anna on the island’s south coast.
A short trip from Mykonos, Delos, and its magnificent ruins. Since we arrived early to explore the site before the sun got too hot, by lunchtime, it is time to proceed to Rhinia. There is time for a quick swim in its emerald-colored waters before you relax over a leisurely lunch. After lunch, we will leave for the Bay of Naoussa on the north side of Paros, with its many sandy beaches.
Koufonissia is the next stop on the cruise, two small islands situated in the heart of the Cyclades. Off the beaten path and away from the crowds of tourists, it is a haven of emerald waters, sandy beaches, smiling, hospitable people, small white homes, spectacular coves for swimming in privacy and of course, plenty of fish! Lunch will be enjoyed in a quiet spot between the islands of Antiparos and Despotico. We will reach the island of Sifnos in the evening, anchoring in Kamares, the main port.
Sifnos is one of Greece’s most remarkable islands. As early as the first century B.C., Sifniot pottery had become famous for its heat-resistant quality, and continues to be popular even today. The island is also famous for its chefs, creating dishes such as pork cooked in wine and rabbit stew. While here, you will want to visit the Kastro, a medieval village offering spectacular, panoramic views.
After a one hour cruise from Sifnos, we arrive at Serifos. Barren mountains are dotted by small, fertile valleys which provide an enchanting atmosphere, including a fairy-tale castle surrounded by windmills.
