Segment 1: Southern Cyclades - Mykonos to Santorini
Possible Island stops include: Naxos, Antiparos, Paros, Ios, Sifnos,
Kimolos, Milos, Sikinos, Folegandros, Thirasia, Santorini.
Located in the central and southern part of the Aegean Sea,
there are 39 islands in the Cyclades of which 24 are
inhabited. On these small islands where the past meets the
present, one can find both peace and tranquility and colorful
nightlife. The white heat of July and August is often relieved
by the meltemi, a strong northerly wind that sweeps across the
eastern coast of mainland Greece and the Cyclades. Narrow
paths full of flowers, whitewashed houses, blue windows and
white churches under the dazzling sun and complimented by
golden beaches: this is one of those magical places where the
reality outstrips the postcards.
Officially known as Thira, Santorini is the southernmost
island of the Cyclades, and is regarded by some as the most
beautiful of the Greek Islands. Formed by a violent volcanic
eruption, the ring-shaped island has a stunning caldera lined
with high cliffs-easy to appreciate when arriving by boat.
Fira, the main town, sits perched on the edge of the caldera
with breathtaking views of multi-colored cliffs, sugar-cube
architecture and great shopping!
We at Sailing Charters believe that true healing begins in the mind. So
we harmonize with nature to take you away from the harsh everyday
routine of stress and anxiety, to a place of remarkable beauty and
exciting adventure. A mind at peace with itself and the world
provides fertile ground for all other healing experiences to occur.
Discover a new and beautiful port or anchorage every day - we sail between 3-5 hours a day!
The Dodecanese (Twelve Islands or Dodekanes) is the most
southerly group of islands in the Southern Sporades, lying off
the southwest coast of Asia Minor. It includes 14 larger
islands together with some 40 smaller islets and rocks. With
the exception of Rhodes, which belongs culturally to Greece
but geologically to the mainland of Anatolia, the islands are
arid and largely barren. Their inhabitants live by farming,
sponge fishing (the Dodecanese forms the base of the Greek
sponge-fishing fleet), and increasingly, tourism. Windsurfing,
water-skiing, snorkeling, diving and swimming are popular
activities in the Dodecanese.
Home to the Greek father of medicine Hypocrites, Kos is an
island full of contrasts, with a mix of both Greek and Turkish
architecture and culture. Rich in history, Kos is home to many
ancient ruins, including Asklipion, a healing centre and
medical school that followed the teachings of Hypocrites. Away
from the lively main town you will find many secluded beaches
and quaint villages. Kos is a part of the Dodecanese island
group and an ideal gateway for excursions to other islands or
Turkey. An exciting possible excursion is the 4-hour hydrofoil
to Rhodes. According to ancient mythology, the sun god Helios
chose Rhodes as his bride and bestowed light, warmth and
vegetation on her. The blessing seems to have paid off and
Rhodes is one of the most pleasant islands to visit. The old
town with its massive walls is one of the finest surviving
examples of medieval fortification. Don't miss the Acropolis
of Lindos, Rhodes' most important ancient city.
