Cruise azure blue waters at your own pace and anchor up at some of Greece’s most exclusive island destinations, many of which are accessible only by boat. Make each and every day different with a bespoke Greece yacht charter itinerary.
Begin your Greece yacht charter itinerary with a visit to Athens, Greece’s capital city. Athens is the cradle of modern civilization, boasting a cosmopolitan atmosphere throughout. The city also overflows with some of the most fascinating historical and archaeological sites and is a must in a Greece yacht charter itinerary. After a weekend discovering the many treasures of this ancient city, cruise on to the bay of Soúnion, followed by the island of Kea, with the picturesque village of Vourkari. Here you can find excellent restaurants where you can enjoy fantastic fresh seafood dishes.
From Kea, head on to Tinos, a wild island famous for its windmills and the beautiful church of Panagia Evangelistria. Make sure to add a stop off on the island of Mykonos during your Greece yacht charter itinerary, where you can enjoy turquoise waters, heavenly sandy beaches, and its famous clubs and bars. While yachting in Greece, cruise straight to Principote Panormos, a premier beach club tucked away on a crescent-shaped bay of sand on the idyllic east coast of Mykonos. Be it dancing the night away on the shore by night or enjoying a Greek lunch at the restaurant, this exceptional beach club is not to be missed.
On the third day of your Greece yacht charter itinerary, you can navigate to the beautiful islands of Delos and Paros. Delos is less known and is the mythical birthplace of Apollo and Artemis and one of the most important historical and archaeological sites in Greece. The entire island is designated a UNESCO world heritage site and boasts numerous archaeological sites, including the famed Terrace of Lions. Paros is equally as impressive, a renowned tourist destination famous for its sandy beaches, crystal clear waters and lively nightlife.
On the fourth day of your Greek charter itinerary, head to Ios, the burial place of Homer. Today the island is a popular destination among young jet setters and offers beautiful beaches, including Mylopotas and Yialos, and ancient churches, such as the Monastery of St. John.
If you are seeking to experience yachting in Greece, you cannot miss Santorini, an island destroyed by an eruption and linked to the legend of Atlantis. Its iconic whitewashed cliffs that cling to the hillside have made this one of the most sought-after destinations in the Mediterranean. Drop anchor and explore the beautiful village of Oia, which is peppered with windmills and blue-domed churches. Spend the day exploring local boutiques, art galleries, and traditional tavernas.
With a bespoke Greece yacht charter itinerary, you can include more off-the-beaten-track islands, such as Sifnos. This Greek island in the Cyclades is the island of Apollo, with green valleys, famous beaches and several delightful towns, including the medieval village of Kastro. This small village is located on the island’s eastern side and is surrounded by ancient walls protecting a maze of alleys. For docking, you can choose the bay of Vathi, an unspoiled protected cove with gorgeous turquoise to blue water.
On the seventh day of your Greece yacht charter itinerary, you can visit Serifos, famous for its charming villages and spectacular rock formations. Serifos is much greener than most Greek Islands and quite hilly, offering beautiful views of the Aegean Sea and its idyllic beaches. Chora, the capital, rises above the port of Livadi and is an exquisite image of bright white houses climbing the hills up to the Castle. Livadi, a quiet fishing port, offers a nearby golden sandy beach and several tavernas.
The last stop of your Greece yacht charter itinerary is Kithnos, with several anchor points, crystal clear waters and white sandy beaches. The beautiful bay of Kolona has a narrow strip of beach that links the mainland to the islet of Agios Loukas. You can choose Kithnos as a landing point. Your cruise on a luxury yacht charter ends here.
