10-day Greek Islands yacht charter (Cyclades)

Luxury superyacht charter through the Cyclades, Greece

Southeast of mainland Greece are the Cyclades, a group of idyllic islands in the Aegean Sea.

If you're looking for paradise, you'll find it nestled among the rugged isles and isolated beaches of the Cyclades. Full of breathtaking views, heart-stopping sunsets, and some of the most crystalline, turquoise waters in the world, a luxury Greek Islands yacht charter is the perfect way to explore all that the Aegean has to offer. 

Here, you'll find vibrant nightlife, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, spectacular diving, and a culinary culture that goes back centuries. Between her famous white-washed fishing villages and isolated, sandy beaches, your bespoke Greek Islands yacht charter has something for everyone.
Day 1
Embark in Athens
Begin your journey in Athens, a modern city built upon ancient stones, with the first settlement dating to the Neolithic age. The Athenian coastline has many great beaches with crystalline waters and lovely bays for anchoring. Spend the morning exploring the local area before cruising to Serifos via Cape Sounio.

Day 2
A night in Sifnos
Secluded beaches and charming villages make Sifnos an unmissable stop on your luxury yacht charter through the Cyclades.

You have your choice of three main locations for your overnight stay: choose Kamares, the main port, and her family-friendly beach; casual and under-the-rader Vathy Bay; or the mesmerising Platys Gyalos Bay, widely regarded as having one of the most beautiful beaches in the Cyclades.

Day 3
Milos via Polyegos and Kimolos
Known for her impressive natural rock formations and moon-like Sarakiniko beach, a visit to Milos is a must. You'll find many places to explore, like the famous Papafragas beach with her open cave-like structures, as well as the colourful and utterly picturesque traditional fishing villages of Fyrop?tamos and Mandrakia.

But before stepping foot on Milos, you'll cruise by the Polyegos, a rugged, uninhabited isle popular for the intense colour and clarity of her surrounding waters. You'll also stop by Kimolos, one of the most primitive Aegean islands, with her tiny, quiet fishing villages and the white sand Prassa beach.

Day 4
Santorini via Folegandros
Set sail to Santorini via Folegandros, an untouched gem, and her isolated Katergo beach with exceptionally clear turquoise waters. The island's capital is considered one of the most beautiful in the Cyclades.

Santorini is one of the most impressive locations in the Mediterranean thanks to her geology, the result of a now-dormant volcano. With her villages situated on towering cliffs, crowned by white houses with splashes of a rich, exotic blue, you'll witness spectacular sunsets and the most stunning vistas in Europe.

Visit Oia, a place of incomparable beauty, and considered to have the best sunset views on the island. Explore her many beaches with the sand of your choice: red, black, or white. Stay the night in Armeni, one of the few places to moor and with great views overlooking Oia, and enjoy her many tavernas, bars, and restaurants.

Day 6
Mykonos via Paros
A luxury yacht charter to the Cyclades isn't complete without a stop in Mykonos, but on your way, we recommend a stop by Paros, a truly ancient city and one of the centres of the Cycladic civilisation. One of the oldest continually-inhabited cities in Europe, Parikia, the island's capital, was once a great naval power, and is typical of the region.

Then, hit Mykonos, the famous cosmopolitan island nicknamed 'the Island of the Winds,' due to strong winds that occasionally blow along her coast. Known for her vibrant nightlife, she is nonetheless a small Greek village, filled with cosy, chic tavernas and white-washed churches. The capital, Hora, has a colourful little harbour with little fishing boats nestled side-by-side with luxury superyachts, and makes for quite a different picture from the majority of Aegean island towns.

Day 7
Kythnos
Kythnos is famous for Kolona, one of the most spectacular anchorages in Greece, with a fantastic double sandy beach and crystalline waters. Beside Kolona, the island has more than 50 other spectacular beaches.

The island is quite low-profile with two pretty villages: Hora, the capital, is vibrant and lively, whereas Drypida is quiet with unique architecture. Kythnos is a great location for history buffs: it is where the oldest human settlement of the Cyclades can be found (10,000 B.C.E.), and is also famous for her natural therapeutic thermal springs.

Stop by the lovely fishing village of Loutra, located in a bay with beautiful beaches on the north-east of the island.

Kea
Also known as Tzia, Kea is all olive groves, vineyards, hiking trails, and off-the-beaten-track beaches. With the largest oak forest in the Cyclades, bird-watchers will delight in the species to be found here. 

In the centre of the island is the site of an ancient city-state and the current capital, Ioulis, an incredibly picturesque village with ceramic-tiled roofs, cobbled streets, arched passageways, and central squares.

Day 9
The Lair of the Hydra
The true gem of the Saronic Gulf, Hydra is a unique island where all motor vehicles are prohibited. All transport is on foot, by boat—or via donkey. Exquisitely preserved stone architecture sits alongside her more modern white-washed buildings, where rural paths criss-cross and deep, clear waters make for a quieter, more simple life. Sit with a frothy cuppaccino in her people-watching harbour before exploring her rocky beaches with a wild, untamed beauty.

Day 10
Aegina via Poros
Prior to stopping by the mythical isle of Aegina, visit Poros, a beautiful green island in the Saronic Gulf. Visit her famous lemon forest, the ruins of the Sanctuary of Poseidon, and the island's trademark clock tower.

Finally, make your way to Aegina, one of the most popular islands due to her proximity to Athens. According to myth, the island took its name from the nymph daughter of river god Asopos, with whom Zeus fell in love and took with him to the island. Though small, Aegina boast a great number of ancient sites and natural beauty, the highlight of which is the Aphea Temple. It forms the so-called 'holy triangle' of the antiquity alongside the Parthenon and the Temple of Poseidon on Sounion

The island is known for her well-preserved buildings, charming villages, and local culinary creations.
