8 days Cyclades Itinerary

Share this page

The beauty of chartering in the Cyclades is the freedom to hop between islands, depending on where the mood takes you. The warm, calm waters are a huge draw alongside the relaxed vibe emanating from the coastal towns.

As with other Aegean islands, the Cyclades sit in the route of the warm Meltemi wind, from the end of June and through to September. So, whilst experiencing the beauty and romance of the Cyclades, this is the time to enjoy some excellent sailing.
