Greece currently provides around 6,000 islands for yacht cruises. Since only 227 of them are inhabited, many of these islands and their beautiful beaches are accessible only by boat. While relaxing on a yacht, you have the opportunity to explore the beauty of ancient buildings, secluded bays and islets. They are all unique in their beauty.
To the southeast of the continent in the Aegean Sea there are 220 islands of Cyclades, which are the most popular cruise region of Greece. The archipelago lies within easy reach of Athens and is known for whitewashed, cuboid-shaped houses that descend down the hillsides to meet sparkling azure waters. Our routes cover such points as Mykonos, Santorini, Paros and Naxos, as well as quieter islands and bays. The best time to relax on a yacht in the Cyclades is in spring and autumn, as at other times of the year waters are subject to strong winds.
