The Cyclades Islands are considered among the best yacht charter destinations in the world thanks to their unspoiled beauty and charm. Exploring these Greek islands could see you anchored in a secluded cove one day and heading ashore to visit a charming white-washed town the next. Not to mention the sumptuous Greek cuisine which can be enjoyed at one of the many waterside restaurants ashore or on your yacht where your personal chef will make use of the finest local ingredients. There are over 200 islands to explore here, and the beauty of chartering a yacht is you can island hop and much as you please, but probably the most well-known islands are Santorini and Mykonos, so this Cyclades Islands yacht charter guide will take a deeper dive into these…

Santorini yacht charter

When you think about a yacht charter in Greece, you may well picture the famous blue and white buildings of Santorini. This island offers some of the most stunning views in Greece, and the view looking on to the island from the sea is even more impressive. Santorini is home to some particularly striking beaches including Kamari, a black sand beach, and Red Beach, a pebbly beach set against a backdrop of red cliffsides. If you are stopping here during your charter, be sure to stay for sunset as these are some of the most incredible in the world – watching from the deck of your yacht is an experience unlike any other.

Mykonos yacht charter

Yacht charters in Mykonos are perfect to add a touch of glamour to your charter holiday. A desirable celebrity hotspot, here you’ll find some of the best nightlife the Mediterranean has to offer. Mykonos is also home to some of the most beautiful beaches in Greece, with golden sands and turquoise waters, and its town is a maze of narrow cobbled streets bordered by beautiful white-washed cubic houses with colourful wooden doors. The town’s famous white windmills are also well worth a visit, with their wooden blades and thatched roofs these are quintessentially Greek and make for the most perfect photos.
