The Greek islands are a mecca for sailing holidays! If you are a sea lover and wish to enjoy the magic of the less touristy and more beautiful beaches, join us on our sailing cruise. Our starting point is the island of Naxos, easily accessible by ferry or plane and strategically located in the middle of the Cyclades. A great base to start our exploration of small archipelago.
Our tour focuses on sailing but we highly recommend to spend a day or two to explore Naxos. Naxos, the biggest of the Cyclades Islands with imposing mountain massifs and fertile valleys, is inhabited by cheerful people with a tradition in music and dance, and full of beauty that enchants visitors.
With its long history (Ariadne of Naxos, by Richard Strauss) important monuments, hidden niches to discover, sandy beaches, towers and forts, ancient temples and great villages you can easily spend a week exploring this magic place. Naxos is also renowned for its great potatoes and Naxian gruyere cheese which you will have the chance to taste in delicious recipes that you will taste.

Our joyful crew will welcome you in the marina of Naxos and as soon as you settle let’s set sail ! Our destination is Pano Koufonissi. This island is very famous for its postcard beaches, white sand and turquoise waters. We will spend the night there, in the port, at a walking distance of the best taverns and bars. On our way, we will enjoy a swimming stop to Kato Koufonissi, an uninhabited island with beautiful swimming-pool-like bays.
After we wake up and enjoy our breakfast in the serenity of the Aegean sea, we set off to Schinoussa, a beautiful island known to be a great place for super yachts to hide from the press. The island is also famous for its food. On our way, we will drop the anchor in Rina bay, on the south coast of Naxos to see a beautiful cave and swim, snorkel and explore. We will spend the night at Schinoussa’s port, not far from the main town (100 inhabitants).
We will set sail to Iraklia, another beautiful island of the archipelago to explore. We will drop the anchor in a bay accessible only by boat in a protected area where an airplane wreck is lying by 6 meters depth. Unbelievable swimming there! After lunch, we will set sail back to Naxos.
