Cyclades Islands

Mykonos Route

Probably the most famous Greek island, beloved destination of the international jet set, is Mykonos.

Starting your sailing trip from our Perfect Yachts Base in Lavrio you can visit first the beautiful island of Kea, with its one-of-a-kind natural harbor Korissia. Although mooring at Vourkari can be a bit challenging during the high summer season, is worth trying. You can have a nice walk for dinner at Aristo’s Tavern or Ennea Kores and with a local taxi you can visit the capital of Kea – Ioulida – amphitheatrical structured at the slope of two hills. Don’t miss a stop at Gyaliskari Bay for a nice swim or even a tasteful lunch at Eora Seaside Escape and restaurant.

Sailing further east you will encounter a former prison island, Gyaros. The history of this island is much contradictory to the beauty of the sea that surrounds it. Take a swim before you depart to your dream island.

Mykonos: The island that combines everything! More than thirty golden sandy beaches. The main port is Tourlos, but is always too crowded. Prefer to anchor at Ornos bay or Platis Gialos beach with numerous taverns and bars. Don’t miss a visit to Psarou Beach, Nammos resort and Scorpios.

As you are about to approach a very popular summer destination be prepared to face some overcrowded mooring spots.

Sailing off don’t miss a visit to Delos and Rineia before arriving to Syros, an historical island of trade, culture, music and excellent food. The best and safer place to moor is Finikas, a very nice and picturesque port where you can find tasteful traditional food. Only 15 minutes driving distance from beautiful Ermoupoli, the center of Siros and capital city of whole Cyclades Islands.

Heading further west you have the opportunity of visiting the east coast of Kithnos and lovely port Loutra. There you can spend a night under the stars before sailing off to return to Cape Sounio, only 4 nm away from our Base. After a nice swim overlooking the Poseidon Temple you can set course in the afternoon back to Lavrio, where our Base staff will be waiting to assist you anchoring and welcome you with fresh fruit and refreshments.

Kithnos Kolona is your first destination where you can enjoy swimming in crystal clear water and moor in the safe environment of this one-of-a-kind double sided beach. Next island, Syros, an important center of trade and culture, will give you the opportunity to try the local delicacy “loukoumi” – don’t miss it!

Sailing to the South lie Paros and Antiparos, two islands very close to each other, divided by a narrow crossing, where you can enjoy vivid night life and historical locations. Before setting sail to Ios you can visit Despotiko, the little island below Antiparos. Famous as a party island, Ios is filled with young people from all over the world and will pleasantly surprise you with its beauty.

Approximately 50 nm sailing south you will encounter the most famous, countless times internationally awarded as the most beautiful island of the world: Santorini. Visiting this island by sea is a breathtaking spectacle with the high cliffs on your left and the volcano on your right.

At this point your slow return to the North will reward you! First island Folegandros will steal your heart with its small capital city, with the magnificent view of the blue-green water below the high cliffs of the north side. Heading west you will find a set of islands with great history and local color: Milos, Kimolos and Polyaigos. Due to the soil these islands have their own, nowhere else to find, rock formations, shelters of Pirates in the past.

Further to the North lies Sifnos with the famous delicacy of “Revithada”, chickpeas in the oven, served in a special ceramic pot. Next island is Serifos, with the beautiful capital city built on a high hill overlooking the island, famous for its beaches and fresh fish taverns.

Slowly your journey will lead you back to Kythnos, where you can spend the last days of your sailing trip. Nevertheless, we highly recommend that you spend the last night of your charter anchored in the safe bay that lies under the ancient Temple of Poseidon in Sounio.
