With a yacht its possible to head to Kea and explore the island’s serenity and enjoy the best possible sea food Greece has to offer.
- Visit the unexplored yet enchanting island Tinos. Explore its local villages and the Greek-Orthodox religion where hundreds of pilgrims journey to every year. From there, the nearest route leads to Mykonos, the island of indulgence and stunning beaches. It’s the best place to relax and unwind.
- Once relaxed and ready to move again, explore the birthplace of Artemis and Apollo which is just a short distance away from Mykonos. Dalos and Paros are quite popular for its exquisite beaches and restaurants.

- Next, discover the picturesque island of Apollo. Siifnos, with its green valleys and medieval towns, is sure to mesmerize anyone. Away from the peace of Siifnos is Kastro, a small town with a tiny population but lots of energy. Once done buying souvenirs from Kastro, one may sail to Serifos.
- Serifos with its infinite charm stands out in its own unique way. It’s know as the island of Perseus and Cyclopes.
