The Cyclades

Mythology and natural beauty

In the heart of the Aegean Sea, the Cyclades archipelago emerges as a string of islands scattered in a deep blue ocean. For sailors and yacht owners, this Greek archipelago offers an unparalleled combination of natural beauty, millennia-old history and rich Mediterranean culture.

Crystal-clear waters and idyllic anchorages

Sailing in the Cyclades means venturing onto a sea that shimmers under the sun, offering a multitude of secluded coves, protected bays and natural harbors. The crystal-clear waters invite you to dive, revealing diverse marine life and captivating underwater landscapes.

A diverse and enchanting archipelago

Each island in the Cyclades has its own aura. Mykonos, with its iconic windmills and bustling nightlife; Santorini, famous for its spectacular sunsets and majestic cliffs; Paros and Naxos, beloved for their golden beaches and traditional villages and lesser-known but equally charming islands like Amorgos, Sifnos or Folegandros.

History spanning the ages

The history of the Cyclades is as ancient as civilization itself. Archaeological sites abound, offering sailors a glimpse into the ancient world. Delos, considered the birthplace of Apollo, is a must-visit, as are the Venetian ruins that dot the archipelago, recalling a time when merchants and pirates ruled these seas.

An Eden for sailors

From the cosmopolitan island of Mykonos to the rustic traditional villages of Santorini, all the islands are simple and charming but each is unique with its own identity and pace. Do not leave the Cyclades before discovering the archaeological site of Delos. One of the most beautiful islands in the entire Cyclades archipelago. Definitely steeped in Greek mythology and laden with mysteries.
