if you are thinking about Greece vacation, we recommend that you rent a boat and sailinf to Cyclades islands and take a route around the circle of islands. It is impossible not to be impressed by the sanctuaries on Mykonos and Santorini, not to mention the bay of Paros.
Featuring bright light and heavy winds, you will nonetheless find protected spots in the Cyclades where you can shelter away and enjoy the contrast of white and blue so characteristic of the Greek landscape.
This group of islands consists of 21 bigger islands and 20 smaller ones, all of them a delight; each has its own special character and charm. The Cyclades are considered by most to be the typical part of Greece, with its charming white washed houses and windmills, its beautiful sunny beaches, the ancient ruins, small taverns with good food and wine are found everywhere.
You can enjoy the lively nightlife of Mykonos, the tourist heart of Greece, the cosmopolitan flavour of Paros, Naxos and los, the natural beauty and architectural style of Santorini and of course Tinos, the center of the orthodox faith. As a contrast to these islands, you will enjoy the simpler but no less important pleasures of the other islands, such as Kea, Sikinos, Kithnos, Serifos, Sifnos, Milos, Amorgos and Andros etc.
Do not miss a chance to sail down to the small islands such as Dhonoussa, Skhinoussa, Iraklia and Koufonisia, where you can explore unspoiled small hamlets, fully protected small ports and anchorages, attractive places which are a delight to visit, you could not imagine that they still exist!
In the South West islands it is less strong. During spring and autumn, you may be faced with winds coming from the South. In general, the sailing conditions are much more demanding than in other areas of Greece therefore, we advise the Cyclades route to be taken for a minimum of at least two weeks holiday.
