Our Mykonos Sailing Itinerary

Mykonos is one of the most well-known and iconic of the Greek islands. On a Mykonos sailing itinerary, you can enjoy the long sailing passages and you will be rewarded with anchorages or marina surrounded by white houses with painted shutters and seafront restaurants.

The Cyclades is a collection of over 220 islands located southeast of mainland Greece. The circular series of islands is located in the heart of the Aegean Sea. Many of the islands are famous for their blue and white architecture, food scenes, sophistication and sun-drenched rocks, as well as one of a kind archaeological sites.

The Cyclades’ extensive collection of islands make the perfect sailing destination for everyone. The number of islands in the group means many sailing options are available depending on what and where people want to visit. This itinerary has something for everyone to admire and enjoy.

  • Getting There

    Mykonos can be easily accessed from all over Europe seasonally. Mykonos International Airport (JMK – Mykonos Airport) operates many flights daily to Paris, Tel Aviv, Venice, Zurich, London, Southampton, Munich, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Frankfurt, Hamburg and many more European cities.

  • Mooring

    Mooring in most of the places in our Mykonos sailing itinerary is “stern to” with mooring lines or anchors at the bow. You can also enjoy “free-swinging” in idyllic, secluded bays, with or without long lines ashore. If you want to visit a couple of private marinas, you should expect a relatively high fee per night.

  • Weather

    The weather in the Cyclades is warm in summer with varying winds, which can become strong when the Meltemi hits. This makes it the perfect sailing destination for intermediate or advanced sailors.

Day two of our Mykonos sailing itinerary takes us to the largest of all islands in the Cyclades – Naxos. Boasting impressive natural landscapes, mountains, rural villages and is one of the greenest islands in the Cyclades.

The island has many small coves to drop anchor and relax on your yacht or take a dip in the ocean. You can also drop anchor off one of the islands beautiful beaches. We recommend – Mikri Vigla beach, Agios Georgios beach, or Plaka beach.

Day 3

Naxos → Nauosa (Paros Island)

From Naxos, our route heads to Paros and the town of Nauosa.

Paros is the perfect blend of traditional Greek with modern elements and Cycladic whitewashed buildings, a thriving nightlife, rural villages and beautiful beaches to drop anchor off and relax on.

The island has several marinas and overnight anchorages to moor to head ashore, visit the small ports, eat dinner at a restaurant, and explore the local area.

Day 4

Nauosa (Paros Island) → Kamares (Sifnos Island)

Day four of our Mykonos sailing itinerary heads towards the island of Sifnos and the town of Kamares. The post is located on the west side of the island and is well known worldwide for its handmade ceramics – so head ashore and find a workshop to see how it’s made.

You can also find a variety of watersports and plenty of taverns, shops and bars to enjoy.

Day 5

Kamares (Sifnos Island) → Loutra (Kythnos Island)

Famous for its hot springs, the island of Loutra is the destination for day five of our itinerary.

Here the mineral water can be seen from the port of Loutra, following into the ocean. Another great place to anchor off is Sand Bar Bay, a protected bay with a small tavern and it’s a great place to watch the sunset.

On day six of our itinerary, we head from Loutra to Finikas on the island of Syros.

Syros is a small island filled with spectacular coloured buildings and culture and is predominately off the regular tourist track.

A great place to spend the night is in Finikas, on the southwest coast of the island. It is a quiet village filled with taverns, bars and coffee shops and is a great place to anchor as it offers good protection from the Meltemi.

Day 7

Finikas (Syros Island) → Mykonos

Our Mykonos sailing itinerary ends back in Mykonos, where you can disembark your yacht and enjoy a night on the town or eat your weight in fresh, locally caught seafood.
