Greece offers almost 6,000 islands and islets to explore on a luxury superyacht charter and, as only 227 of these are inhabited, many of these islands and their beautiful beaches are accessible only by boat. Greece presents visitors with endless possibilities and truly has something for everyone. Explore cosmopolitan towns, famous yachting hotspots, take in the ancient history, and relax in the secluded bays and islets of the five main island groups, all unique in their beauty and charm.
The Cyclades are scattered across the Aegean Sea to the southeast of Greece’s mainland. The 220 islands of the Cyclades form the most popular cruising area in Greece. Within easy reach of Athens, the archipelago is renowned for white-washed, cuboid houses that tumble-down hillsides to meet glittering azure waters. Itineraries can encompass busy yachting hotspots such as Mykonos, Santorini, Paros and Naxos, as well as more peaceful options. The best time to charter a yacht in the Cyclades is from June through to mid-July, as the waters are often subject to strong winds at other times of the year.
