Every Greek island charter itinerary includes Mykonos since it has something for everyone.NaxosThe Cycladic island of Naxos is the largest and most diverse in terms of landscapes and activities. In Saggri, the Temple of Dimitra, the Venetian Castle in Naxos Town, and the archaeological museum, the 'Portara' of the ancient Temple of Apollo are all worth seeing.SchinoussaAn extremely small and laid back island off the southern coast of Naxos is Schinoussa. For much of your time at this resort, you'll be doing nothing more than kicking back and taking it easy.IosUnlike Mykonos, where most of the pubs and clubs are concentrated in the major towns and villages, the island of Ios has a much broader range of nightlife options than those found on Mykonos. For a unique perspective on Ios, head to the large beaches on the island's east coast.FolegandrosIt's no secret that Folegandros, a small Greek island, has grown in popularity in recent years, especially among savvy tourists from Greece. In spite of the fact that only a few of Folegandros' beaches can be reached by automobile, visitors willing to hike (or perhaps charter a sailboat) can enjoy beautiful beaches without the crowds.MilosMilos is a popular sailing destination with a wide variety of activities, beautiful beaches, and a popular coastline near the town of 'Kleftiko' that is always a hit with the sailor community. Milos, in our opinion, is a must-see.SifnosWe'll sound like we're reciting the same thing over and over again! Located in the Cyclades, Sifnos is one of the most picturesque islands in the area. Sifnos, despite being a bit off the beaten path, nonetheless features a vibrant nightlife, beautiful beaches, and awe-inspiring landscape.

Sailing Route – Cyclades Islands II

A longer sailing vacation in the Cyclades is possible, allowing you to see all the islands on our Northern and Middle Cyclades itinerary as well as the additional Mykonian, Naxonian and Ionian islands as well as Milos and Sifnos. There are, however, a wide variety of Cycladic islands to choose from, so you can mix and match to your heart's content. So our second charter route here excludes the islands of Naxos and Schinoussa in favour of Amorgos, which is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful places in Greece. Have a great time on the water!From To Distance Alimos marina Cape Sounio 23 NM Cape Sounio Kea 14 NM Kea Syros (Finikas) 41 NM Syros (Finikas) Mykonos 25 NM Mykonos Amorgos 48 NM Amorgos Santorini 41 NM Santorini Ios 24 NM Ios Folegandros 18 NM Folegandros Milos 37 NM Milos Sifnos 24 NM Sifnos Serifos 12 NM Serifos Kythnos 23 NM Kythnos Poros 46 NM Poros Alimos marina 29 NM Distance is measured in nautical miles (NM)
