IDYLLIC ISLAND HOPPING ON A SUPERYACHT CHARTER IN GREECE
When you want to get to the heart of a Grecian island odyssey, to the most astounding beauty, the Cyclades and the Ionians present paradises on earth. From the intensely azure waters that envelop the Cyclades to the viridescent Ionian islands, a voyage through these isles is extraordinary. Picture white-washed buildings sloping down tumbling hills to the deep blue below and rugged cliffs blanketed with lush vegetation. Fascinating ancient ruins that speak of countless civilizations of yore. It’s easy to see why Odysseus longed for his return here. To take in all that these legendary islands have to offer, a private superyacht charter in Greece allows the greatest freedom of exploration.
The peak season of May to September brings with it glorious sunshine that lights up the seas and the skies. The Ionian Islands are carpeted in pine forests and greenery that reaches its full, glorious bloom in summer. In July and August, winds in certain areas around the Cyclades present the perfect opportunity to embark on exhilarating pure sailing and watersport activities for the adventurous, while beautiful sheltered bays hidden away from it all are always just around the corner.
Usual superyacht charters through the Grecian isles span between 7-10 days. From decades of experience sailing these waters, we usually recommend a 7 day minimum for a luxury charter so you are able to truly take in all that the islands have to offer. Indeed, many clients opt to spend 2 weeks on a Grecian charter in order to fully luxuriate in all of its wonders.
