Sailing in the Cyclades Islands

Thinking of sailing in the Cyclades? Charter out of Athens or get closer (and go further) by sailing out of Lavrio!


Yacht and Catamaran Charter in the Cyclades

The Cyclades islands are a vast collection of islands to the South of the Greek mainland where you’ll find brilliant winds, delightful scenery and, of course, exceptional sunshine. The whole area is also blessed with crystal clear (and warm) waters, picturesque views, and astounding sunsets.

There’s so much to see and do here that you could easily spend two weeks cruising the area (and you should if you can!) and still not see everything – and there is something for everyone, from incredible beaches, inspiring architecture, and everything from cute fishing villages to the decadent Mykonos, now one of the world’s luxury capitals.

Map of the Cyclades Islands


There’s over 220 islands in the Cyclades, almost all worth visiting, including Kithnos (famous for its fine and picturesque beaches), Tinos (a tiny pilgrimage island with a gigantic cathedral), Mykonos (a favourite with the rich and famous), Delos (a birthplace for Greek gods, now home to enormous ancient ruins), Santorini (the most beautiful island in the world, with huge white cliffs), Siros (with grand venetian architecture), plus Serifos, Ios, Naxos, Thira, Nea… and so many more.

Traditionally you would explore the Cyclades from Athens, but a better option (saving you a day's sailing each way) is to charter from Lavrio, which is easily reached from Athens international airport.
