The Little Cyclades cruise is a popular destination because you visit very small islands, with simple life but incredible natural white beaches, rocky ravines alternated to small coves in a sea of green turquoise waters. These views will surprise you!!

After a rich breakfast, once boarded the last minute provisions, the sailing cruise starts toward the Little Cyclades. These beautiful small islands are considered a perfect refuge for anyone who’s looking for some peace and tranquility. At Iraklia (24 miles away) we’ll anchor in the bay and…. ready to enjoy… a swim sometimes together with the turles!! For those who enjoy foot-trips there is a nice walk to visit the little Chora (walking distance 4 km.) or the village nearby the port.

Weather permitting, we’ll sail toward Donousa (13 miles north-east), another island of the Little Cyclades, known for its beaches and quiet moorings. The village is small and welcoming, it’s not unusual to be the only boat anchored there. The water is incredibly clear and the place is perfect for a swim and for some relax. One of the most intriguing aspects of this dream sailing cruise is the cuisine. Tonight for dinner we’ll have prawns with “tagliatelle”.
After a swim at dawn we’ll have a rich breakfast on board with fresh cake and then sail to Amorgos, a must-see for 2016 sailing boat holiday. Lunch on board, not far from a little church nearby the water. Short sail to reach the mooring at Katapola. No-one should miss a tour of the island, especially a visit to the famous monastery of the Panaghia Chozoviotissa, completely built into the living rock, and the Chora, that rises all around a Venetian castle, with lime painted houses, little churches and a museum. Also the northern part of the island, the picturesque Egiali, can be reached on foot, through its three snow white villages and its sandy beaches.
On September and October 2016, when the sun isn’t so hot, the island offers the chance for many walking tours along paths with wonderful panoramic views.
