Set sail on a new way to see the Greek isles. Book a charter from Athens around the Cyclades and find vibrant villages set in cliffs above the deep blue Aegean Sea; or walk along cobbled alleys in ancient towns, sipping wine in a taverna before dancing the night away in some of Europe’s best clubs. Whatever you’re looking for on your next vacation, Greece has it all.
After spending some time exploring Athens, you’ll board your yacht at midday and head on a short cruise to Kea – lunch can be served alfresco while cruising so you can take in the sights, such as the Temple of Poseidon on your way.
When you wake up you’ll already be in Syros, which is a lush and hilly island with fantastic architecture thanks to the days when this was one of the wealthiest ports in Greece. This is the Greece you’ve seen in pictures – colourful buildings, historic alleys and pale blue domes overlooking the Mediterranean. There are plenty of beaches, quiet bays and authentic tavernas where you can dine in town if you’d like (or feel free to stay on the yacht!).
Mykonos is one of the most famous Greek isles and you’ll see why – gorgeous colours, beautiful waterfront and of course – plenty of shopping, dining, and bars if you feel like soaking up the culture at night.
Birthplace of the gods Apollo and Artmeis, Delos was a sacred island in ancient times and now has plenty of historical ruins making the entire place a veritable open air museum!
Heading over to Naxos while you enjoy another delicious lunch cooked up by your private chef, you’ll find some of the best sandy beaches in the Cyclades, with vineyards, olive groves and high mountain villages to enjoy. Plenty of secluded private coves will be available, only accessible by yacht so be sure to ask your captain to take you there!
Depending on the type of experience you’re looking for, Ios has plenty of nightlife to offer – beach clubs and bars, whereas Paros, offers breathtaking clifftop villages and quiet islands you can anchor off of and go swimming, read a book in the sunshine or stroll through flowery streets watching local fishermen on the docks.
No trip to Greece is complete without the iconic views available from Santorini. White-washed villages sit atop soaring cliffs with views of the bright blue Mediterranean below. Definitely spend some time strolling the cobbled streets, take a donkey up the narrow laneways and enjoy a cocktail in Oia taking in the breathtaking views (and try to spot your yacht down below!).
Spend another day in Santorini to spend time exploring the town, swimming in the clear blue waters, and enjoy cocktails on land taking in some of the world’s best sunsets.
Enjoy a final swim in that deep blue sea, and dine alfresco before disembarking to head back to Athens.
