An unforgettable holiday awaits you in Greece on a bareboat or skippered yacht. You will visit the Temple of Poseidon and the island where the Venus de Milo was discovered. Charter a sailboat for 14 days in the most beautiful islands of the Cyclades.
So, if your wish is to sail the Cyclades and you have not found a yacht to charter from Lavrio, no problem.
Alimos Marina, south of Athens is a good alternative solution. You will have the opportunity to visit Athens and probably make a stop at the Cape Sounion, under the Temple of Poseidon.
This two-week adventure around the typical cycladic islands, such as Sifnos, Serifos or Paros, with their white houses, beautiful villages and picturesque alleys, will plunge you into the heart of the Aegean Sea.
You will discover the beautiful island of Milos and its islets, Polyaigos and Kimolos, and their impressive rocky formations and spectacular cliffs.
What are you waiting for? All that remains is to find a skipper and a sailboat!
A perfect anchorage for the first or last night.. or both. At Cape Sounio is the Temple of Poseidon, known as the God of the sea in Greek mythology. The custom is to make an offering in order to enjoy perfect holidays. A visit to the archaeological site worth the detour and the view of the Aegean Sea is breath taking.
There are several possibilities for the island of Kea. You can moor at the main port or the small port of vourkari, or anchor at the great Bay of Otzias, or if you want to continue visiting archaeological sites, the Bay of Karthaia, accessible only by boat. A place to explore and meditate.
The anchorage in Kolona is another place to relax and enjoying the view of this sandy beach with clear blue waters. You can choose between 3 well protected bays from the wind and away from noise and tourists. You can also moor to the port of Merichas to taste some fresh fish and make the necessary refueling for your boat and the rest of your holiday.
Mooring in the large Bay of Livadi or the small Wharf, if there are still places and if the wind permits. From the bridge of your boat you will admire the austere terrain of the island with at its top, the capital, Hora, glowing of whiteness. With its white houses carving out the intense blue of the sky and the sea, typically cycladic colors, it is an excursion not to be missed.
This island concentrates all the typical features and charms of the cycladic culture. Olive trees, arid landscape, white wall houses, blue domes, windmills and orthodox chapels. If you visit the island during September, you will have the opportunity to participate in the gastronomic festival “Nikolaos Tselementes”. Otherwise you will always have the opportunity to taste the wonderful cycladic cuisine of the island.
Milos and Kimolos
A strange landscape of volcanic origin, cliffs, caves, Milos has a unique geological interest. The island has a beautiful archaeological museum, where you can admire beautiful cycladic statuettes, as well as a copy of the famous Venus de Milo (the original is in the Louvre). We suggest you to moor in polyaigos or kimolos to admire the impressive cliffs.
Go up to the North and the beautiful Naoussa of Paros with its tavernas and cycladic bars. Here you will have the opportunity to have fun as well during the day and at night. A well-animated island, but still with its traditional look. Paros combines beautiful beaches, cycladic charm, beautiful animated villages, all in a warm atmosphere.
The Ermoúpolis of Syros is the capital of the Cyclades. It is an island where both Orthodox chapels and Catholic churches are present. An island rich in history and culture where it is very interesting to participate during the Easter feast. Two ports can accommodate boaters, the main port where one can moor at the wharf, and the port of Finikas to the South of the island. It is one of the best protected ports for north winds and the Meltemi.
The charming little port of Loutra offers a few places at the wharf and opposite a mooring in a sheltered bay. Tavernas, cafés and bars run along the wharf of fishermen’s boats. On the beach of Loutra, you will find hot springs to enjoy and relax after this long and amazing sailing holiday.
