Around a dozen tiny islands and inlets make up the Little Cyclades, but only four are inhabited, meaning this is one of the most pristine, unspoilt and naturally stunning locations on the whole planet. Naturally we couldn’t resist adding these charming islands to our yacht getaway itinerary and we can’t wait to show you why!

Picture Perfect Pano Koufonissi

This small island, now home to just 300 people, was once a regular haunt of pirates and with one look at the rugged shoreline and concealed caves, it’s not that difficult to see why. It may be small in size but it’s not short of beautiful restaurants, charming architecture, wonderful locals and picture perfect beaches. A bit of a hot-spot for those in the know, Koufonissi is more than worth a visit.

Enjoy Iraklia on Your Yacht Getaway

This miniature 19 square kilometre slice of heaven is as serene and peaceful as it is breathtakingly beautiful. One of the only places in the world you can unplug, forget about the outside world for a while and truly relax, an afternoon on Iraklia is probably more rejuvenating than the best night’s sleep you’ve ever had in your life. It’s really quite special.

Stunningly Beautiful Schinousa

The perfect place to paddle board and take in the beautiful coastline views before making your way ashore to wander around the island’s main village, Hora. Popular with yachts you’re guaranteed to meet some like-minded people in this beautiful, easy-going location.

Dreamy Donousa

With sun drenched beaches, beautiful whitewashed architecture, quaint churches and traditional taverns, Donousa is the perfect location to soak up the sunshine, indulge in delicious Mediterranean cuisine, and take in those stunning views. The sunsets from Donousa are something special and are best enjoyed from the beach, with an ice cold drink in hand.
