A Yacht Charter in Cyclades is an ideal option for experienced Sailors. Explore the islands of Santorini, Mykonos, Syros, Paros, Antiparos, Naxos, Ios, Koufonisia with the traditional white-washed houses, the stunning sunsets, the big blue sea and the golden beaches. The Cyclades Islands (over 220 islands and islets) are located right in the heart of the Aegean Sea and form a circular series. Some also divide them into two regions - the main Cyclades and the small Cyclades. Among them, the famous islands of Santorini, Paros and Mykonos with the traditional white-washed houses.

We definitely recommend starting your sailing holiday from Lavrion (wider selection of yachts available there) which is very close to the International Airport of Athens and has easy access to the Cyclades; the first island (Kea) is an hour away.
If you want to fly directly to the islands, you can look for convenient flights to the airports of Paros, Santorini and Mykonos.
Transfer Time (Lavrion): 30 mins
This area is ideal for more advanced sailors, as the North prevailing wind "Meltemi" usually blows at 5-6 Beaufort and sometimes even 7-8. The Meltemi is stronger during July and August, so if you want slightly calmer seas, you should visit the Cyclades in spring or autumn.
As the Aegean is Greece's most challenging destination with stronger winds and longer distances between the islands, we recommend opting for a 2-week charter when possible.
We recommend taking advantage of the warm, katabatic wind as it comes from the North, and go further South to explore the "Small Cyclades" as well.
Other than credit cards, you will also need to have Euros in cash with you.
Mooring fees are minimal in Greece and due to limited space, you will mostly be free-swinging at idyllic bays or using the town harbours.
