Cyclades Sailing Holidays

Cyclades are one of the world’s best-known sailing destinations. With beautiful islands such as Santorini, Mykonos and Paros, yacht charter in the Cyclades is a spectacular and unforgettable experience.

When sailing this magical part of the Mediterranean, your first stop should definitely be the largest island of the group, Santorini. There, you can go hiking the famous Fira Trail, go donkey riding or swimming in the hot springs! Among the most popular of the Cyclades is the island of Mykonos, which offers a great variety of motor yachts for charter. It is a true jet-set heaven, where you can enjoy the most luxurious resorts and try exciting water sports. All archaeological buffs and Greek mytholgy lovers will definitely enjoy a visit to Delos, the sacred island in the central Cyclades, a birthplace of twin gods Apollo and Artemis.

Yacht Charter in the Cyclades

If you want to charter a yacht on the idyllic Paros, do so in the lovely and vibrant village of Parikia. Try the finest Greek dishes in its many restaurants and explore the island’s history by visiting Panagia Ekatontapiliani, ''The Church of 100 Doors”. From there, enjoy a relaxed sailing trip to the Golden Beach (Chrissí Aktí) on the southeast part of the island.

As it is the case in the rest of the Mediterranean, the best weather for sailing is high season (July - August). However, sailing conditions are good from April all the way until the end of October, so if you want to avoid crowds, low season will be the right choice for you.
