Here are the itineraries and spots we visit during our cruises "One Week Cyclades" during the months of May, June, September and October.
These are the best months for navigation in the Cyclades, not too hot, not too many people ... and not too much wind!
Indeed, in July and August, in addition to crowded ports, the Meltemi (north wind) can blow quite hard in the Cyclades almost all the time.
Therefore during these two months our yachts are cruising in to two other magnificent archipelagos, Ionian and Sporades, for a quiet cruise from coves to ports.
For the Cyclades, we start from Mykonos, which has great connections (ferries or planes) or Syros (for our West Cyclades itinerary including Milos).
This greatly optimizes the route compared to a departure from Athens where the first and last day would be devoted mainly to ... join the Cyclades!
All our itineraries are indicative and can change considering weather, harbor possibilities or technical elements.
With a departure from Mykonos this itinerary allows visits to the most famous spots in the Cyclades:
Mykonos - Delos - Paros (Naoussa) - Ios - Santorini - Schinoussa - Naxos - Rineia - Mykonos
Syros - Antiparos - Ios - Santorini - Schinoussa - Paros - Delos - Syros
With a departure from Mykonos this itinerary is more focused on small coves and islands with less time of navigation:
Mykonos - Delos - Naoussa (Paros) - Piso Livadi (Paros)
Schinoussa - Kato Koufonissi - Koufonissi - Naxos - Rineia - Mykonos
Alternatively, for weather or other technical reasons, the Captain can choose an itinerary including Syros island rather than Paros, as follows:
Mykonos - Delos - Syros - Antiparos bay -Schinoussa - Kato Koufonissi - Koufonissi - Naxos - Rineia - Mykonos
The captain can suit the itinerary to your wishes taking in consideration different elements as harbours, weather forecast, time of sailing and... return date.
