Are you daydreaming about a sailing getaway in Greece? We just came back from an incredible journey with Yacht Getaways a premiere sailing company in Europe and are so excited to share our whole itinerary day by day plus all our favorite restaurants and the must-do’s in the Cyclades Islands.

The Cyclades Islands are a group of islands located in the Aegean Sea, situated to the southeast of the mainland of Greece. Each island has its own unique charm and character, attracting tourists from around the world. Yacht Getaways offers an exclusive vacation experience centered around chartering and cruising on a private catamaran with a bunch of friends & family. If you charter the whole catamaran, you can often customize your itinerary, deciding when and where to sail, anchor, and explore. This flexibility allows for a more personalized and intimate vacation experience. Learn more about how it works here.

If you can’t convince your friends & family to join, you can simply rent out one of the cabins and share the boat with like-minded strangers. So instead of staying in traditional accommodations like hotels or resorts, you are able to rent a private room on one of their catamarans, for a defined period, typically ranging from a few days to a week.

The level of luxury depends on your preferences and budget. Choose between the Superior Class and the Prestige Class. For your reference, we embarked on the Superior Class and though it is a bit smaller and more basic than the Prestige Class, we loved every minute of it. Sometimes less is more and let’s be honest, most of our time we spent either in the water or exploring new islands. Both catamarans are equipped with great amenities to provide a lavish experience including a private bathroom and a crew of two to attend to your every need, which includes your host who also prepares divine meals twice a day, and your skipper, the captain of the boat, who makes sure you get to all of the destinations safe & sound.

The beauty of island hopping through Greece with Yacht Getaways is that you get to sail to various destinations, exploring coastal areas, islands, and picturesque anchorages. No matter what endeavor you choose expect to visit exclusive ports, marinas, and secluded beaches that may not be easily accessible by other means of transportation. This exclusivity adds to the allure of the experience. For more reasons why you should embark on a sailing read our blog 6 Reasons Why You Should Sail Through Greece With Yacht Getaways

While it was difficult to choose our voyage we ended up going on the Greece Paros Explorer and we have no regrets, this cruise offers something for everyone from lively nightlife and fancy beach clubs to tranquil island getaways, snorkeling in remote bays and romantic oceanfront dining experiences. There is a reason these islands are known for their stunning landscapes, picturesque white-washed buildings, blue-domed churches, and beautiful beaches. Click here to check out our stories documenting our 7-day adventure around the Cyclades Islands.

Get ready to soak in stunning panoramic views of the sea and coastline, and breathtaking sunsets, dine on the deck with the sound of the ocean in the background, and bask in the beauty of their natural surroundings.

The Islands You will Visit on the Greece Paros Explorer

Island: Paros

Between Santorini and Mykonos sits the rather quiet and underrated island of Paros. Naoussa & Parikia are the two most popular travel destinations on the island. The island’s capital, Parikia, is the main port of Paros and the starting point for your trip with Yacht Getaways. It is the perfect destination because it caters to both those seeking tranquility and those eager to explore the island’s vibrant atmosphere.

We took the fast-speed ferry from Mykonos to Paros and arrived directly in Parikia, Paros. If you have the luxury of time then we recommend coming a day or two earlier to explore this part of Paros in more detail before embarking on your 7-day sailing excursion.

Meander through the cobblestone streets adorned in bougainvillea flowers and get lost amongst the dreamy white buildings that add to this Greek Islands charm. The town is also home to important historical sites like the Panagia Ekatontapiliani Church, often referred to as the Church of 100 Doors.

The island offers a mix of traditional and modern elements, with its charming white-washed houses and narrow streets. The waterfront of Parika is worth exploring as it is lined with cafes, restaurants, and shops, making it a pleasant place to stroll and enjoy the sea breeze. We recommend making a dinner reservation at SALAIR, a stunning rooftop restaurant & bar with breathtaking sunset views over the ocean. SALAIR is an all-day Mediterranean Japanese Restaurant located on the rooftop of Oasis Hotel. Since the hotel is located right at the Parikia Port, this is also a great place to stay should you arrive a few days before the start of your cruise.

Another adorable restaurant we recommend in Paros is the DIONYSOS Garden Restaurant. The restaurant sits in a shaded Neoclassical courtyard and serves delicious, modern Greek dishes.

The meeting point might change but ours was at Oasis Hotel, a great place to enjoy a cup of coffee or a cold beverage while waiting for everyone to arrive. Your skipper will collect you right in front and guide you to your catamaran. Oasis Hotel is also a great and affordable hotel to book should you decide to arrive in Paros a day or two prior.

We climbed aboard our intimate catamaran and met our host Carmel, as well as the other guests on the tour. We loved our little cabin, the rooms were clean and cozy, but be prepared, there isn’t much space in the cabins for big suitcases. We were actually able to store our bigger suitcases at the hotel we were staying at prior to our departure, free of charge. We managed to only bring our carry-ons and were quite happy with that decision. The cabin provides a small closet space to hang a few shirts as well as enclosed shelving for folded pieces but that’s about it.

However, if you do decide to bring your bigger suitcases there is storage at the front of the boat and the crew is happy to find a safe space to keep your suitcases.

After a brief introduction to the boat, the itinerary, and safety, we started our journey to our first stop for the night: Naoussa in the North of Paros.

Naoussa is such a vibe, a picturesque fishing village, that exudes a relaxed ambiance and offers a delightful escape into narrow alleys and seafront tavernas. This small town was one of our favorite stops along our sailing trip and a place we wish we had more time to explore.

There is only so much one can do in one evening on the island, but it was definitely a nice teaser experience since the boat only docks for one night it’s often hard to explore more than the area around the harbor. We definitely would love to come back here one day and spend some more days meandering through the adorable cobblestone streets. Some places carry this energy within them that can’t be explained, Naoussa is definitely one of them.

For dinner, we would recommend dining at Luaz, a culinary delight in Paros and one of the best restaurants in Naoussa! Luaz boasts a romantic courtyard but also dreamy oceanfront seating. While there is no bad seat in this restaurant, I would always prefer a table with a direct few of the sunset. Definitely make sure to make a reservation in advance, they are pretty popular and likely to book out. But no worries, Naoussa has a lot of cute restaurants located right by the water providing a unique dining experience. After dinner, climbed up to Faneromeni (Panagía) Church and watched the remainder of the sunset.

Day 2: Naoussa (Paros) - Naxos

Island: Naxos

Naxos, the largest and most diverse island in the Cyclades archipelago, is a collection of ancient wonders, sun-soaked beaches, and authentic Greek hospitality. As you step onto its shores, you’re welcomed by the timeless allure of Chora, the capital of the island of Naxos. The first place we stumbled up upon was 520 Cocktail Bar & Restaurant, located right by the harbor this intimate rooftop restaurant provides stunning views of the Marina and is within walking distance of the catamaran. It is a great place to grab some lunch, coffee or even a drink.

From afar you’ll quickly spot the grandeur of the Temple Of Apollo, an ancient marble doorway that whispers tales of myth and legend. This popular sight should not be missed and is the most picturesque during sunset.

For sun-seekers and beach enthusiasts, Naxos presents a paradise of golden sands and crystalline waters. We actually ended up renting a scooter and spent half of our afternoon at Tortuga Beach Bar & Restaurant, where we rented two beach chairs for 30 Euros. However, we did realize that there are a bunch of free beach chairs just a few minutes away.  Dotted along the endless stretch of coastline, you will find a great selection of beach bars & restaurants inviting you to bask in the Mediterranean sun and lose yourself in the rhythm of the waves. For a slightly more alive atmosphere, we recommend getting a chair at Nomad Naxos.

Venturing into the island’s interior reveals a verdant landscape dotted with olive groves and traditional villages. Apeiranthos, with its narrow streets and stone houses, offers a glimpse into the island’s rich cultural tapestry. Time seems to slow down here, allowing you to savor the simplicity and warmth of Greek island life.

As the sun sets, Naxos comes alive with the aroma of local cuisine wafting through the air. Tavernas and seaside restaurants beckon with the promise of culinary delights, from fresh seafood to traditional Greek dishes prepared with love and authenticity. We highly recommend making a reservation at AVATON 1739 to watch the sunset. This was probably one of my favorite places during our trip to Naxos, but I have a weakness for open-air places with stunning views.

We always like to experience as much as possible so we only ended up getting drinks at AVATON 1739  but they also serve food so feel free to stay for dinner. We decided to end our date night at Flamingo and we are glad we did. Located on a rooftop right by the Marina, this is a great place to enjoy some traditional Naxian food while listening to traditional Greek music. This place is also known for its traditional plate smashing …. I don’t even know how to explain it. You will just have to go and experience it for yourself but it doesn’t get much more Greek than dining at Flamingo Restaurant. 

Naxos isn’t just an island; it’s an immersive journey through time and culture, where ancient history meets modern charm. Whether you’re exploring archaeological wonders, lounging on sun-drenched beaches, or savoring local flavors, Naxos invites you to surrender to its enchanting embrace—a true Greek island odyssey that lingers in the heart long after you’ve left its shores.

Island: Ano Koufonisi

The day was a dream—setting sail early from the harbor, pausing for lunch, and a refreshing swim in a bay south of Naxos. The highlight was Rhina Cave, a fascinating spot explored on paddleboards. Although not too deep, the cave’s interior darkens as you venture further inward. After a rejuvenating nap and some pleasant sailing, we dropped anchor at Ano Koufunisi island.

Ano Koufonisi, though petite, is renowned for its captivating beaches and the unparalleled clarity of its waters. The ocean’s hues around this little gem are absolutely mesmerizing. It’s no wonder the island is celebrated for its picturesque shores, including Pori Beach, Fanos Beach, and Italida Beach. With their white sands and turquoise waters, these beaches offer a slice of paradise. However, some may require a transfer as they’re not all conveniently within walking distance.

Ano Koufonisi, in contrast to some bustling of its Cycladic counterparts, offers a serene and less crowded escape, creating a tranquil ambiance. Given its small size, the island encourages a leisurely pace—whether you choose to unwind on the catamaran or venture ashore for a light snack or refreshing drink at one of the quaint cafes. Kyma Cafe situated by Ammos Beach, captured our hearts with its all-day charm. Picture yourself seated at the water’s edge, savoring delightful views—an ideal kickoff for a peaceful afternoon on this quiet island.

As you meander inland and ascend a gentle slope, you’ll discover narrow alleys winding through charming, traditional whitewashed houses adorned with vibrant bougainvillea.

How to spend the perfect afternoon inAno Koufonisi

  1. Get a drink at Kyma Cafe, an all-day cafe bar right by the beach
  2. Soak up the sun at Ammos Beach and take a swim in the azul blue waters of Ano Koufunisis Island
  3. Enjoy mesmerizing sunset views from atop the island at Mylos or TZET. Both places are perfect for enjoying a few handcrafted cocktails
  4. Get dinner at Mikres Cyclades, an authentic local restaurant offering divine Greek food with a modern twist. Have your skipper call the restaurant to make a reservation for dinner, the place is really good and it is not a secret.
  5. Don’t forget to end your night with delicious ice cream from Fystiki Koufonisi. This is hands down the best ice cream on the island located right next door to Mikres Cyclades.
  6. If you are still up for it head to Sorokos, another great lively oceanfront bar

Day 4: Ano Koufunisi - Schoinoussa

Island: Schinoussa

Today’s itinerary featured a delightful pit stop at the serene Leonidas Bay in Kato Koufonisi, for a quick morning swim and breakfast. After indulging in a few hours of relaxation, paddleboarding, and swimming in the mesmerizing crystal-clear waters of this peaceful lagoon, we set sail for Schoinoussa.

Being on the water for the past four days has been nothing short of magical. The ocean breeze has captured our hearts, and waking up each day to embark on a new adventure to a different island has become our reality. The journey is not just about the destinations but the joy of sailing, the anticipation of exploration, and the enchantment of the island life. Each moment, from serene lagoons to thrilling water activities, contributes to weaving together this fantastic experience in the sea. As we continued our voyage to Schoinoussa, we eagerly awaited the next chapter of this enchanting adventure.

We arrived at Tsigouri Bay in the early afternoon and had the rest of the day to explore the island of Shinouissa. Our skipper transported us with a dinghy right to the shores of Tsigaouir Beach, a beautiful wind-protected beach on the south of the island.

Schinoussa remains off the beaten path compared to some of the more popular Cycladic destinations due to its small size and lesser-known status. The charm of this island lies in its simplicity, natural beauty, and the genuine hospitality of its residents. It’s a destination that allows you to step back from the hustle and bustle, immerse yourself in the essence of Greek island life, and create memories of a truly authentic experience. This contributes to its peaceful and authentic ambiance, truly a place where time seems to slow down.

When it comes to dinner options on the island, there are a few choices to consider. Captain Cook Restaurant is conveniently located just a few steps from the beach, providing easy access. However, if you’re up for a bit of an uphill walk, there are other tavernas worth exploring. The effort is rewarded with the charm of Schinoussa’s quiet streets.

Our choice for dinner was Deli Restaurant & Cocktail Bar. This establishment offers a cute downstairs area, perfect for a casual coffee or drink. For a more exquisite dining experience, we headed upstairs to a beautiful restaurant with stunning sunset views overlooking the ocean. Venturing up to the quiet streets of Schinoussa proved to be the right decision, making the evening meal a memorable part of our island exploration. The little town really only started to come alive once the sun set behind the horizon. On our way back to the Marina we noticed that the small village slowly started to wake up, all of a sudden the restaurants started to fill up and local artists were displaying their work on the side of the narrow streets that made up the center of the town.

Day 5: Schoinoussa - Ios

Island: Ios

In an effort to avoid the crowds, we made the decision to leave Schinoussa early in the morning and head towards Alimia Bay on the Island of Iraklia for breakfast. The bay, known for its calm waters and natural beauty, offers a unique ambiance. However, what truly distinguishes Alimia Bay is the historical significance attributed to the plane wreck submerged beneath its surface.

Over time, this underwater relic has transformed into a captivating attraction. The juxtaposition of the serene bay and the historical artifact creates a compelling narrative, bridging the peaceful present with a reminder of the island’s history during World War II.

Following some snorkeling and exploration of the shipwreck, our next destination was Ios. Ios is not only known for its beaches and nightlife but also for its cultural and historical sites.

A list of the must-dos on Ios

Agia Irini Church in Ios Greece shot by The Nomadic People

1. Agia Irini Church: The pristine Agia Irini church is the first impression of the island once you enter the port. Nestled to the south of Ios Bay, the church is an eyecatcher and impossible to miss with its whitewashed facade.

2. Chora (Ios old town): This is the heart of Ios, a charming village on the hill adorned with its white-washed buildings, narrow streets, and lively atmosphere. The labyrinth of alleys is lined with shops, cafes, and bars. Bougainvillea gracefully covers doors and windows, creating a picturesque scene. The first thing that stood out the minute we got off the bus was the beautiful whitewashed Church of Ios. I will never get sick of blue domes.

3. Windmills of Ios: The traditional windmills in Ios are located at the top of Chora and stand as timeless sentinels, enhancing the island’s picturesque charm with their iconic presence. From the windmills, you can enjoy a splendid view of Ios village and witness an enchanting sunset. We recommend enjoying dinner at The Mills, serving traditional Greek food since 1969. The restaurant embraces the rich traditions of Greek cuisine, while occasionally adding a modern twist. Renowned for its signature clay-cooked moussaka, spit-roasted lamb, and flambé saganaki, the restaurant also delights in offering grilled calamari and wholesome Greek salads crafted from the freshest ingredients.

4. Enjoy the Beach:

Mylopotas Beach is a short 15-minute drive from the port and a quick ride on the local bus. Known for its golden sand and crystal-clear waters it is one of the most popular beaches on the island, perfect for both relaxation and water activities.

Definitely plan on having dinner at Salt Restaurant & Bar if you are planning on heading to Mylopotas Beach for the afternoon.

If you rather spend a lazy afternoon drinking local Ios wine, eating freshly caught fish, octopus and local dishes as the blue Aegean waters then make sure to dine at Drakos Tavern, one of Ios’s best-kept secrets.

Another much closer option is Paralila Gialos Beach, located 6 min walking distance from the port. Here you can rent sunbeds for around $10.

5. Eat Out:

Katogi Tavern – an inviting Greek Tapas Restaurant, and supposedly one of the best restaurants on the island.
La Buca – this family-owned business offers the perfect combination of Italian flavors with Greek cuisine, recipes that are passed down from generation to generation amidst a romantic atmosphere.
Allo Bar (Tapas style) –  this restaurant is located close to the port you can walk to this restaurant right from your catamaran. With good food and live music, this  perfect place to eat out at night in Ios.
Ios Club – one of the best and dreamiest sunset dining bars on the island and most likely where you want to be to watch the sunset if you don’t feel like partying.
Alma Sunset – another beautiful place to enjoy a romantic sundowner with your partner or friends. Expect mesmerizing sunset views overlooking Ios while indulging in some wine & tapas.

6. Explore the Nightlife: The island is full of clubs & bars. The hot spot for nightlife is right in the heart of the old town.

Barmacy – this is one of the few places on the island where you can find deep house & techno. The interior is such a vibe with mushroom murals lit by black light.
Pathos Sunset Club and Restaurant – situated in the western part of Ios Island, this club offers an enchanting blend of great music, crafted cocktails, and an eclectic menu featuring gourmet recipes and sushi. The venue comprises a lounge bar, a restaurant, a swimming pool, and breathtaking sunset views. Throughout the summer season, the lineup of DJs is carefully curated at Pathos, making it a hotspot for those who love dancing and partying into the night.
FarOut Beach Club – located by Mylopotas Beach and this club is the ultimate party destination of Ios Island. Make sure to check their schedule to see what shows they have lined up during your visit.
SUSH Bar – this bar is a little different to what we are used to. It is a silent disco bar in right in the heart of the Chora. Before you go inside, you get a pair of headphones with 3 settings, each streaming a different music genre from House, R&B, and top 40s.

7. Homer’s Tomb: The island is believed to be the final resting place of Homer, the ancient Greek poet. Here at his burial site you can sit in peace and enjoy the panoramic views of the Aegean Sea.

8. Odysseas Elytis Theater: An open-air theater that hosts various cultural events, including concerts and performances. The Odysseas Elytis Amphitheatre stands proudly at the pinnacle of Chora, situated behind the iconic whitewashed windmills.

Day 6: Ios - Antiparos

Island: Antiparos

Antiparos was our favorite stop during our 7-day journey with Yacht Getaways through Greece. Just a skip away from its more well-known counterpart Paros, Antiparos beckons travelers with its unspoiled beauty and laid-back charm. There was just something so charming and inviting about this place, the cutest designer shops all with such talented artisans, the multitude of delicious restaurants, and all of the bougainvillea covering the whitewashed walls.

Since we didn’t have a lot of time on the island, we just did what we know how to do best, eat! Despite its small size, Antiparos has a very vibrant culinary scene. Below you can find 3 of our favorite restaurants in Antiparos.

Set amidst a garden of bougainvillea, this is the perfect restaurant for dinner. From the look to the taste, they imaginatively use local ingredients to create dishes with distinct Cycladic flavors. We recommend making a reservation in advance as it can get quite popular.

This is currently our favorite sunset bar in the world. The location, the vibe, the selection of cocktails, and the service were outstanding. Located right by a small cliff overlooking the ocean, there is no better place to watch the sun disappear behind the horizon. Pick your favorite drink from a plethora of cocktails and watch the bartender craft the perfect concoction for you to watch the warm colors of dusk fill the sky.

If you want to watch the sunset, make sure to come earlier or simply book a table in advance because this place is one of the most popular bars on the island so it will be busy no matter what day of the week.

Located in a small alley off the beaten path, this is the epitome of a secret garden. We stumbled upon this hidden gem on our way to watch the sunset, only to return after dark to feast on their delicious appetizers, entrees & desserts.

Day 7: Antiparos - Paros

Island: Paros

Antiparos marked the final destination on our journey before returning to where it all began in Parikia, Paros. But before bidding farewell, we made a final detour to savor the enchanting waters of the Aegean Sea. Dropping anchor at a bay near Kavouras Islet, west of Paros, we indulged in sunbathing, and paddleboarding along the island’s perimeter to witness a stunning rock formation emerging from the pristine blue depths of the ocean. Our adventure concluded with a delectable last lunch, wrapping up the trip in the most perfect way.

Yacht Getaways offers a truly unique experience. Every aspect, from the impeccable service to the thoughtfully chosen destinations, is meticulously planned and seamlessly delivered.
