Cruise like a celebrity through the glittering waters of the Cyclades on this nine-day itinerary. The Cyclades are some of the most quintessential Greek islands, and you'll see seven of them from the decks of your yacht, along with plenty of time to explore onshore. From lesser-known spots like beach-lined Milos and petite Antiparos to favorites like bustling Naxos and cosmopolitan Mykonos, you'll scope out this island chain in style.
As you sail toward Cape Vani, you'll cruise by the Arkoudes, a cluster of impressive 20-foot (6-m) tall rocks shaped like a bear. Milos is known for its unique rock formations, and you'll find even taller ones at Vani, one of the first mineral mines of Milos. View the town's 19th-century mines quay and take a break to swim in the picturesque Bay of Kalogries.
After swimming, enjoy snacks on board and set sail for Sykia, the biggest and most impressive cave of Milos. You'll anchor in a bay that was once a volcano crater and enjoy another swim. Glide through a low passage of lava rocks to visit the cave and observe its salt lake and small beach inside.
Your next stop is Kleftiko, an old pirate lair with unique rock arches and caves. This is a great place to snorkel, traversing underwater passages. Return to the boat for a delicious meal and dessert, then catch a dinghy to the caves to take photos and explore a bit on foot.
The tour's final stop is Gerakas Bay, home to one of the island’s best beaches. Often called Ammotsoulhthres, meaning "sand slides," the bay forms a white beach that contrasts perfectly with the turquoise-green waters. Enjoy one final swim before heading to Provatas Bay.
