Graceful Greek islands - Make memories on a sailing getaway

Picture Perfect Paros

Surrounded by crystal clear waters and miles upon miles of unspoiled coastline, Paros is bursting with culture, adventures and incredible restaurants. From beautiful churches and picturesque villages to open air cinemas, wine tasting events and water sports, Paros really does have something for everyone.

Step Back in Time on Majestic Naxos

The childhood home of Zeus, Naxos will fill your soul with stories from ancient mythology as you walk through the gateway to what was once a spectacular temple and watch the sun set over the ocean like millions of people before you.

Relax and Recharge on the Lovely Little Cyclades

Indulge your taste buds with fresh, traditional Greek cuisine and hire a scooter or a bicycle to soak up some of the most spectacular views of secluded coves and the rugged coastlines. You’ll probably never want to leave!

Soak Up the Spectacular Sunsets on Antiparos

This little slice of paradise is small, but oh so perfectly formed. Explore a stunning 15th century castle and the island’s extensive caves, which have provided shelter to people from the Neolithic period until the present day and where people including Alexander the Great and Lord Byron once carved their names. After a quiet morning exploring, head back down to the ocean to dive or snorkel amongst some of the most stunning sea life and ship wrecks.

Enjoy Incredible Ios on your Sailing Holiday

Although best known for its lively nightlife, especially during the summer months, Ios is an island with so much more to offer. Explore an ancient amphitheatre, visit Homer’s (yes, that one!) tomb and wander up to the city of Chora to take in the spectacular views of the island before enjoying a cocktail on one of the island’s golden beaches as the sun goes down.
