1. Mykonos

Mykonos is all about the party scene: From backpackers to the superrich, the island is the Mecca of entertainment tradition. However, Mykonos is still the same town with plenty of beautiful sandy beaches charming windmills and a picturesque port town.Yet, you can still see an old lady leading a donkey laden with veggies through the narrow streets of the island. For those who are not impressed by glitz and glamour, Aegean Maritime and Archaeological Museums are a must-see!

Sparkling white with an Aegean blue backdrop, the architecture of Mykonos is one of a kind. It extends into the little neighborhoods of the island’s main town, Hora, with captain’s homes, old churches and wells. Everywhere you look, there’s a maze of whitewashed alleyways. In Gialos, you’ll find the famed pelicans, as well as Agios Nikolaos tis Kadenas, them Town Hall of 1780, and the imposing Mavrou School. Through Barkias, you will reach the Church of Panagia Paraportiani, a complex of five churches, completed in the 17th century.

Paros yacht charter itinerary

2. Mykonos to Delos and Delos to Paros

It’s not hard to see why the Ancient Greeks believed that Delos, a small island opposite Mykonos, is where the god Apollo was born. The summer sun reflects off the marble and stones strewn across the island, just as it did in antiquity when it symbolised the light of inquiry, reason and harmony.
It was a light that was seen to radiate throughout Greece, making Delos the centre of an archipelago of islands arranged – as if magically – in a circle around it. Hence the name of Greece’s most famous island group, the Cyclades, of which Delos lies at the centre.

Paros is right up there as one of favourite Greek island destinations for many reasons, not least because of its idyllic location at the heart of the beautiful Cyclades group of Greek islands …but Paros definitely ticks lots of other boxes too! For those looking for traditional, charming and exceptionally photogenic villages with white washed houses and narrow stone streets, look no further than the picturesque village and fishing port of Naoussa. The main town of Parikia, with its trademark windmill, where you will get your first impression of Paros.

Watch the sun setting in the horizon from Panagia Gremiotissa church… Visit Homer’s grave, one of the island’s most significant historical monuments… In any case, this charming Cycladic island is a multidimensional destination!

Stop in at Franco’s bar in Fira, the main town, for a drink and a gorgeous Santorini sunset overlooking seamless cus tard bay where the volcano lies dormant, not dead. Try one of the extremely good restaurants, among them, Selene in Fira and Tomato near the airport. Inland, tour the brilliant- white Boutaris winery and visitors’ center for a dropdead video show on Santorini and a guided tasting of Boutaris wines. Drop anchor on the easily accessible east coast for a swim at black volcanic-sand beaches and unbeatable deepsea diving.

Don’t miss Santorini’s superb archaeological sites, including Ancient Thira, a Doric city- fortress from the 9th century B.C. high on a southern coastal promontory, and farther south, fascinating on-going excavations at Akrotiri, which is an even earlier Minoan settlement. Walk a few meters to the far southern tip for a breathtaking black-sand moonscape beach backed by a sheer red clif.

Folegandros yacht charter itinerary

Milos yacht charter itinerary 1

6. Folegandros to Milos

Milos is an island in the Cyclades, shaped by its volcanic past to offer its visitors incredible beaches and an exotic beauty unlike any other island in Greece. The highlights of Milos seem endless: Sarakiniko and Kleftiko, with their white rock formations, emerald green waters and caves eroded by the sea, are steeped in stories of pirates. But they are rivalled by early Christian catacombs, an array of beaches and the multicoloured settlements of Klima, Emborios and Mandrakia, with their quaint buildings cut into the cliffs and Plaka’s sun sets. And let’s not forget that this is where the Venus de Milo (the exquisite life-sized marble statue believed to be the goddess Aphrodite, now housed in the Louvre) was discovered. All of these cry out in unison: Amongst all the incredible islands of Greece, Milos is unique.

Highlights

  • Lunar landscape of Sarakiniko
  • The natural pool of the Papafragas Caves
  • Historic Plaka and Tripiti

7. Milos to Serifos or Kythnos

Lying on the western part of the Cyclades, in the heart of the Aegean sea, Kythnos Greece is unarguably one of the most beautiful islands close to Athens. Its short distance from the Greek capital is the reason why it is seen as of the most popular city-break destinations.

Kythnos island has some quaint villages, including Chora (the island’s capital), Driopida and Loutra. The villages stand out for their elegant architecture, strollable alleys, and laid-back atmosphere. Wandering around the picturesque villages, you’ll come across corners embellished with flowers, white-washed houses, traditional taverns, windmills, and fountains. The scenery is magical!
