The Cyclades portray a true heaven not so much crowded, where usually it is possible to find yourself completely alone in one of the little lanes, surrounded by white churches and houses, desert beaches overlooking crystal clear water. With over 200 islands, the Cyclades have become the most beautiful archipelago in Greece, ready to offer you unforgettable memories. These numerous pearls nestled in the Aegian Sea are the perfect destination to recharge the batteries and immerse yourself in the tranquillity of the true Greek soul; little but welcoming villages, romantic sunsets, big desert areas. If there is something fixed during this cruise through the Cyclades is for sure the contrast between the hundreds blue shades of sea and the lightening white of the houses. Selected catamarans and sailing boats are waiting for you to set sail through the Cyclades. Contact us for a personalised estimate.

Day 1: Check-in
Check-in available from 5 p.m. at the embarkation Marina. After the technical check-in and a short presentation of the boat, you can take your seat in the cabins and board the galley before setting sail.
We set sail in the early morning for an enjoyable sailing towards the south, blown by Meltemi winds in the direction of Antipaxi. This island will enchant you with its naturalistic beauty and its very relaxing atmosphere. Don’t miss a little excursion ashore to visit the old town of Chora with its beautiful Venetian castle and the acient churches of Agios Nikolaos and Agios Ioannis. After that, you can descend towards the south and choose a quiet bay to enjoy the sunset and spend the night.
From Antiparos we proceed in the direction of Folegandros, extremely beautiful island with high and rocky coasts, washed by a crystal clear sea and transforming into soft hills lined with kilometers of small dry stone walls. From there you can easily reach the little harbour of Karavostasi and go up to the Chora or old town, towering over the cliff: the perfect place for enjoying a suggestive dinner.
Ideal day for sailing towards the west in the direction of Ios. This little and almost uninhabited island is particularly appreciated by young people for its parties on the beach and improvised concerts. At the same time, it offers isolation and relax among the olive trees, secret bays and little churches hidden among the rocks. Moor in the bay of Mylopotas Beach and go ashore to join an unforgettable beach party.
We proceed with a peaceful navigation abeam that will take us from Ios to the uncontaminated nature of the island of Iraklia. The biggest of the “Small Cyclades” is scarsly populated and is famous for the quality of its olives and the hospitality of its fishermen: it still preserves the charm of an ancient land with rich traditions.
After breakfast we proceed to the east. Sailing in the direction of Koufunissi, you will find breath-taking landscapes and enchanted bays. You can also stop for a dive in one of the bays around the near Katokoufunissi. This pure and generous island will astound you with its clear waters, white coasts with bays that resemble natural pools with fine sand beaches, and caves skillfully dug by the sea in the porous rocks.
It won’t be easy to leave Koufunissi, but the route has other surprises for you. We sail to the north to reach the near island of Naxos. On its western coast, you can find suggestive white little pebble beaches where you can stop for lunch and swims. Famous for its archaeological sites, it surely deserves a visit ashore. Later on, you can enjoy the sunset at the Portara (Temple of Apollo), landmark of the island. Return to the Marina at 18:00 with overnight stay in the port included.
Day 8: Check-out
Disembarkation is scheduled at 9 a.m. on Saturday.
The itinerary may be subject to variations based on weather conditions, safety conditions and the technical assessments of the captain of the boat. This program is intended as indicative and not binding.
Paros is a must-see destination for each sailor: here it is possible to please the desires of everyone, white houses and churches, colorful little streats, breathtaking landscapes, local inhabitants ready to welcome you and have fun together. Folegrados is far from turism and offers you bare beaches surrounded by nature, the little village of Ano Meria and the typical Chora. Ios alternates white houses and incontaminated nature;we suggest you the pedonal route through the main spots in order to enjoy better the breathtaking view. Enjoy the landscape crossed by the Meltemi, in particular the Manganari beach.
