Sailing Holidays greece, West cyclades
Cyclades is the region where Greek Islands holidays concept was born. It is where whitewashed houses with cupolas, blue window shutters and small fishermen boats were photographed first. From here these photographs spread throughout the world and now in every Greek holidays prospect you can see photos from the Cyclades.
The islands in this area are rather large but with rich coastline with plenty of bays to drop our anchor in. Most of these bays are lined with some small, white houses, sandy beach and rather arid hills encircling it. The water is crystal clear, tavernas are in every town and the life runs somewhat slower. It is not easy to get to these places as a tourist – one needs to take a ferry – so the tourism is somewhat less (except Mykonos of course).
These Cycladic islands were inhabited already a few thousands of years ago and it can be seen and felt. Columns, ruins, old paths are visible here and there, sometimes in the most unexpected place. Delos archeological site is on the UNESCO list and as it bears signs of life from 3000BC is a unique place. Luckily enough plenty of great anchorages are nearby. Seems ancient Greeks also loved sailing (our thesis).
join a sailing adventure into the Greek islands
We designed a longer than usual sailing route, ca. 180NM, to visit all the gems of the region. This route will give you a great insight into what Cyclades have to offer: little and quiet Greek villages, islander towns, archeological sites, lonesome bays and wind, wind, wind. Meltemi, the prevailent wind, will make sure the longer distance of this route will be covered with ease. Pack your sun lotion as the wind, sun and no clouds is to be expected.
As always no sailing experience is needed to join as our professional skippers will introduce you to everything you need to know. The optional sailing course is absolutely free of charge, hands on and fun. More experienced sailors will be given some responsibility and can count on coaching too!
