7 days of relaxation around Cyclades islands
Starting point: Lavrion
Arrival: We can arrange a transfer from the airport to the marina for you. The transfer is not included in the price.
About: The Cyclades are an island group in the Aegean Sea, southeast of mainland Greece and a former administrative prefecture of Greece. The Cyclades includes about 220 islands. The name “Cyclades” refers to the islands forming a circle (“circular islands”) around the sacred island of Delos. Most of the smaller islands are uninhabited. The largest island of the Cyclades is Naxos, however, the most populated one is Syros.
The islands are peaks of a submerged mountainous terrain, with the exception of two volcanic islands, Milos and Santorini. The climate is generally dry and mild.
The plan for the first day is to arrive on a Saturday in Lavrion and get to the Marina. Your check-in on the boat will be at 5 PM and you will spend the night there. You can visit the old Lavrion mines in the Archaeological Museum of Lavrion.
Vourkari is a small village in Ayios Nikolaos Bay in Kea. Vourkari is very cosmopolitan during the summer, full of yachts, sailboats, and speedboats.
Many seasoned cruisers usually anchor off because it is quieter and the marina tends to be crowded. There is a very good bakery near the waterfront.
Parikia is the capital and the main port of Paros island. The trademarks of Parikia are the preserved windmill in the port and the Venetian Castle.
Kamares is a small town on Sifnos island. The bay of Kamares is a long sheltered cove and it is a very rare day that there are any waves.
The smallest inhabited island of the Dodecanese. Lining the port of Emporios are the brightly colored houses with their ceramic-tiled roofs and wooden windows. Regardless of when you arrive at Halki, the clock on the tower will read twenty after four.
For your last sailing stop, you can return to Lavrion and explore the city port and its marinas. Or visit some of the many restaurants and bars… You can also visit some of the city museums and explore Ancient Greek history. After that, you can enjoy your last evening in Split and check out on Saturday at 9 am.
