Amble the narrow streets of the picturesque Chora, making your way to the hilltop church of Panagia Gremiotissa, boasting an outstanding view over the bay. The town well known for it’s lively bars and a great choice to enjoy a few cocktails! Little Cyclades There are actually about a dozen of these “baby” Cyclades, but only four are inhabited: Donoússa, Páno Koufoníssi, Skhinoússa, and Irakliá. These islands offer a glimpse at the few remaining remote Greek islands, where the sparkling white beaches are pristine, with excellent opportunities for swimming and paddle boarding. Dotted with traditional tavernas, the local cuisine is exquisite, offering the best of the Mediterranean! Naxos Naxos is the largest island of the Cyclades and according to mythology was where the god Dionysus taught the inhabitants to make wine, be sure to sample the local varieties! Famous for their exotic and untouched white beaches, the island is perfect for exploring and topping up your tan! For those a little more adventurous, the western coastline is ideal for wind and kite surfing! Mykonos The most well known of the Greek Islands, Mykonos boasts a host of attractions. From idyllic beaches and beautiful architecture to exhilarating nightlife and designer boutiques, Mykonos has been a must see island for decades and it is easy to see why! Just a short hop away is the incredible island of Dilos where you can admire one of the most extensive and important sites of Greek antiquity in existence. Naousa This beautiful fishing village is located in the northern part of Paros, offering picturesque surroundings packed with traditional character and charm. The white washed houses, ancient churches and labyrinth-like stone paved streets are set like an amphitheatre around the port, with friendly Tavernas and Ouzeries offering a warm Greek welcome! Naousa is also home to the oldest local winery, make sure you visit for a tasting! Paros Exemplary of Cycladic architecture with flat roofs, whitewash walls, and blue-painted doors, Paros is perfect for a relaxed stroll amongst the picturesque chapels, monasteries and windmills so famous in this part of the Aegean sea! Well known for a laid back atmosphere, Paros has long been popular with the yacht set and offers an authentic taste of Greek Island living with traditional Greek hospitality. Optional Transfers: Santorini & Athens Famous for the iconic white villages dramatically perched on the steep edge of the caldera, Santorini is a romantic, idyllic town that offers breath-taking views to the sea, and the perfect place to end your week-long sailing trip.
