Mykonos - 7 Day Sailing Itinerary
Day 1 - Mykonos (Mykonos Island)
Along with Athens and Corfu, Mykonos is probably one of the most well known places in Greece. Famed for its cosmopolitan atmosphere, exciting nightlife and picturesque architecture it is a must visit place for anyone sailing in this area. The island is located in the heart of the Cyclades and promises vistors plenty of things to do. We'd recommend hunting out Little Venice or perhaps one of the renowned beaches.
Day 2 - Naxos (Naxos Island)
The largest of the Cyclades, Naxos packs a lot of bang for its buck. Its main city of Hora is a web of steep cobbled alleys, filled with the hubbub of tourism and shopping. Yet you needn't travel far to find isolated beaches, atmospheric villages and ancient sites. It is a big beautiful island, rich in agriculture, tradition and some of the finest beaches in the Cyclades.
Day 3 - Nauosa (Paros Island)
Nauosa is considered to be one of the prettiest villages in the Cyclades. The village has kept it authenticity even though tourism has grown rapdily here. It's whitewashed and flowered little houses coupled with tiny churches, chapels and labyrinth like streets combine to give an enchanting atmosphere to the village. The port is at the heart of the village and is full of local fishing boats and the remains of an old Venetian castle.
Day 4 - Kamares (Sifnos Island)
Kamares is the port of Sifnos and lies on the western side of the island. Sifnos is one the the best known ceramic production centres in Greece meaning you'll find plenty of workshops dotted around the town. The main settlement lies on the right of the bay and has plenty of tavernas, shops and bakeries where you can stock up. The beach has a watersports centre on it if you fancy trying your hand at something smaller than your yacht.
Day 5 - Loutra (Kythnos Island)
The town of Loutra is famous for its hot springs which flow right into the sea. You can see where the water runs in a stream on the edge of town and empties into the sea at the town beach. For those who want a free cure you can go to the spot where the hot water pours into the sea and there is a tub built with rocks where the sea water mixes and makes the temperature bearable.
Day 6 - Finikas (Syros Island)
Finikas is a large and lively village in the southwest of the Syros Island. The harbour has plenty of space for visting yachtsmen and the town offers a wide selection of tavernas. You'll also find a fantastic beach close to the harbour where many of the locals head to during the peak season.
Day 7 - Mykonos
If you didn't have an opportunity to explore Mykonos on your first night then we strongly recommend heading into the town centre on your last night. Mykonos has something for everyone including: restaurants, traditional tavernas, bars, clubs and beaches.
