Your Cyclades Islands yacht charter will visit some of the most beautiful islands in Greece. The Cyclades Islands are one of the island groups in the Aegean Sea, southeast of mainland Greece. Naxos being the largest island and Ermoupoli (meaning “the city of Hermes”) on Syros is the capital town and administrative center. The islands are bound by the Sea of Crete to the south.
Some of the most beautiful and popular islands in the world are located in the Cyclades Islands. Cyclades Islands translate in English to: “circular islands”, forming a circle around the sacred island of Delos. According to Greek mythology, Poseidon (God of the Sea) was furious at the Cyclades nymphs and turned them into islands.

The Cyclades Island Chain
The Cyclades encompass about 220 islands, the major ones are Amorgos, Anafi, Antiparos, Delos, Ios, Kea, Kimolos, Kythnos, Milos, Mykonos, Naxos, Paros, Folegandros, Serifos, Sifnos, Sikinos, Tinos and Thira (Santorini). Many minor islands belong to this group of islands like Donousa, Eschati, Gyaros, Irakleia, Koufonisia, Makronisos and Schoinousa. Most of the smaller islands are uninhabited.
Glorious splendid sandy beaches, crystal-clear turquoise blue waters, white-washed houses with the blue accent color, traditional lifestyle, folklore, warm and hospitable inhabitants, barren landscapes with isolated chapels and windmills, attract millions of visitors from all over the world each year, in the quest to find paradise on earth.
Andros is the northernmost island of the group, Tinos the religious center and Mykonos the favorite holiday destination. Cousteau looked for the lost city of Atlantis on Santorini, the precious gem of the Aegean, which is, in fact, a group of islands in the southernmost part of the Cyclades.
