Sailing Adventure From Mykonos To Santorini (8 Days)

Sailing Adventure From Mykonos To Santorini

On a 7-night sailing adventure by yacht that starts from Mykonos and finishes on Santorini you will be able to sail South through the sunkissed Cyclades islands. The budget-friendly independent cruise allows you to discover some of the most picturesque Greek islands while helping out the crew as you sail. Be ready to soak up the blissful solitude, swim and sightsee by day, and dock each night on Mykonos, Naxos, Amorgos, Ios and Santorini as well as a smaller lesser-known island in the archipelago.

Sailing Adventure From Mykonos To Santorini (8 Days)

Day 1: Mykonos
You will board your yacht in the early afternoon and meet your crew and fellow passengers during a welcome meeting to learn about the finer details of your itinerary. You will be free in deciding on how to spend the rest of your day. You might take a walk to admire Mykonos’ chic whitewashed architecture with sights such as the Church of Panagia Paraportiani or take a day trip (own expense) to the sacred island of Delos, the alleged birthplace of Apollo and Artemis. Later on, you might make the most of a night in port and check out the island’s hedonistic bars and lively restaurants. Please note that Mykonos nightlife is legendary.

Day 2: Mykonos – Naxos
Today, you will sail away from port in the early morning, and then stop to enjoy breakfast and a swim at the Bay of Gaidharos, a popular local beauty spot. From there, you will continue South to the island of Naxos, where more sandy beaches and olive grove-framed villages await. The largest of Greece’s Cycladic islands, Naxos has a colourful mythological history, with many considering it to be the place where Zeus hid from his destructive father. You will dock at the port, enjoy lunch on board, and then spend the rest of your day doing whatever you please. Maybe you would like to explore Naxos’ scenic Old Town, or wander along the southern shores of the island and scout out the best beaches.

Day 3: Naxos
After breakfast, you will enjoy a full day of free time to get to know the island. Naxos has plenty to offer besides its beautiful beaches, so perhaps take a stroll to the impressive Venetian Castro of Naxos to wander around the medieval mansions, monuments and churches that are etched into the hillside. You will get the chance to pay a visit to the Archaeological Museum of Naxos for an insight into island life thousands of years ago and see a white marble figurine that’s said to be the earliest example of sculpture in Greece. If you want to experience more of Naxos’ culture, you can join a day trip around the island to visit one of the oldest temples in Greece – the Temple of Demetra – and spend time at a family-run tavern in the hills. The excursion also includes a shot of kitron, the local lemon liquor, plus a walk along one of the finest beaches on the island.

Day 4: Naxos – Small Cyclades Island
Wouldn't it be great to feel the wind in your hair as you set sail from Naxos? After breakfast you will set off to discover some of the smaller islands that comprise the Cyclades chain. After roughly five hours at sea, you will anchor at one of the unspoiled, almost-uninhabited islands – perhaps Koufonisia, Iraklia, Shinousa or Donousa – and make the most of the island seclusion by swimming in the clear waters, sunbathing on the beaches or enjoying fresh seafood in a waterfront taverna.

Day 5: Small Cyclade Island – Amorgos
You will be enjoying breakfast as you sail southeast to the mountainous island of Amorgos, an idyll immortalized in Luc Bresson’s 1988 film, The Big Blue. With impressive history to equal its rugged beauty, the island was ravaged by pirates in the Middle Ages before being ruled in succession by the Venetians, Byzantines, Ottomans and, finally, the Greeks. You will dock at Katapola Port, and head out to discover Amorgos’s delights at leisure. You will be able to take a stroll to an ancient Minoan settlement or relax in a waterfront cafe and gaze out at the white Cycladic architecture and windmills that dot the coastline. In the afternoon, you can enjoy a drive out to Moni Hozoviotissis, an 11th-century monastery stacked into the cliffs overlooking the sea. You will also be able to browse its collections of historical artifacts and soak up views of the Aegean Sea.

Day 6: Amorgos – Ios
You will leave Amorgos after breakfast and sail west to Ios, a large and lively island that’s popular with holidaying Greeks who come for watersports, bars and an abundance of beaches. Then you will follow the sunbathing masses to Gialos or Milopotas, escape the crowds at Valmas or Tsemaria or explore the shops at Chora – the island’s pretty Old Town. In the evening, you might visit one of Ios’ many beach bars or take a stroll up the hill to Panagia Gremiotissa, a popular spot to see the sunset.

Day 7: Ios – Santorini
While cruising to Santorini, you will enjoy breakfast. It is the most famous island in the Cyclades archipelago. Renowned for its beauty, Santorini also boasts a vibrant capital town (Fira) and several rustic wineries dotted around its sleepy hills. After docking at the port, you can either explore Fira at leisure, seeing the glorious Dominican Covent and other attractions, or bask on the island’s dramatic black-sand beaches such as Perissa or Agios Georgios. The volcanic island is home to a plethora of upmarket restaurants as well as classy bars and nightclubs, so this is your chance to make the most of your last night in the Greek islands and spend it out on the town. 

Day 8: Santorini
After a final breakfast on board your yacht you will say goodbye to your crew and fellow passengers as your 7-night cruise finishes.
