Travel from Cyprus to Greek islands

Sailing from Cyprus to Greek islands

7-Days Journey to the Greek Islands

We are pleased to offer special tailor made tour from Cyprus to a Greek islands by our private yachts.  We tried to select the most beautiful places to visit.

DAY 1 - KASTELLORIZO

Sail to Kastellorizo 7-8 hrs - Departure 6 am

Visit Blue Grotto - the most beautiful cave in the Mediterranean. There are stalactites and stalagmites in this extremely beautiful cave which can only be visited by boat. a sea-cave that is lit by the reflection of the sun from the sea bottom every morning, filling the space with an unearthly blue light.

On  the ruins of the Ancient Castle built in the 4th century BC, the Knights of Saint John rebuilt this fort in the 14th Century at a height of 200 metres above the port of Megisti. The reddish rock on which it was built and the view of the castle while the sun sets behind it have given the Island its current name, ''Red Castle'' (= Castello Rosso -> Kastellorizo). The walk up to the castle is rewarding, as it enjoys a magnificent view of the Island and the coast of Turkey. In addition, in close proximity to the castle are ruins of a Turkish Hamam and a restored watermill. 

DAY 2 - RHODES

Sail to Lindos-Rhodes 2-3 hrs

The lovely village of Lindos is one of the most attractive and beautiful villages of Rhodes. Set on the slope of a hill, it is dominated by the acropolis and overlooks a picturesque bay. Here you will find whitewashed houses with pebble-paved courtyards, narrow alleys and buildings influenced by Byzantine, medieval, Arab and Rhodian architecture. Wander through the narrow, picturesque streets of the town, perhaps indulging in some shopping at the various shops, or enjoy the local cafés and tavernas. Attractions include the beautiful acropolis that can be reached by foot or donkey, the old theatre of Lindos, carved from a rock, and the Doric sanctuary of Athena Lindia.

If guests wish can then sail to Mandraki-Rhodes

Nowhere else in the Dodecanese are so many layers of architectural history piled upon one another as in the fortified Old Town; be it classical, medieval and Byzantine or Ottoman and Italian periods. A volta (stroll) down its hauntingly pretty cobbled streets is evocative, as black-clad octogenarians loom from doorways, the scent of leather shops competing with bougainvillea.

The old monastery of PanagiaTsambika is worth visiting, built on top of a hill with gorgeous view to the sea and the surrounding area, while the new monastery, which works today, is found on the road that connects Archangelos to Rhodes Town. The icon of Panagia Tsambika is considered miracle-working, particularly for the childless women, which is why many women offer to the icon of Panagia child dolls. This monastery is considered a protector of the island and in fact many locals are named Tsambikos for men and Tsambika for women

DAY 3 - SYMI

Nanou bay with it's breathtaking scenery.  Nanou can only be reached from the sea and is a sweeping bay, backed by high cliffs, with astonishingly clear water, marvellous for snorkelling,

Panormitis Monastery -Just the tranquility and serenity of the bay of Panormitis offers an almost spiritual experience. The Monastery of the Archangel Michael at Panormitisis the island's most famous monastery. The original church of St.

Michael was built around 450 AD on the site of an ancient temple to Apollo. It contains a splendid icon of the Archangel and two interesting museum sections. 

Overnight in Symi - Symi has the most beautiful harbour in Greece. On either side of a steep-sided fjord rise tier upon tier of houses, some white, some pastel yellow, but virtually all with Neo-Classical pediments - a reminder that 100 years ago this was one of Greece's most prosperous islands. There has been virtually no modern concrete construction here and now these fine old houses are being resurrected for visitors. The spirit of the island remains intact."

 DAY 4 - NISYROS

Nisyros is the youngest of the large volcanic centers in Greece and is one of the active volcanoes in Greece. The volcano is 160,000 years old, while the youngest, prehistoric rock formations are 15,000 years old and cover the entire island.

The sight that is really worth visiting though is the Castle of Spiliani, an imposing fortress built by the Knights. The castle stands on a fabulous location above the settlement offering breathtaking views to the sea.

The famous Monastery of Panagia Spiliani, one of the oldest places of worship and the religious symbols of Nisyros is also located in Mandraki. The cave inside the

monastery houses the sanctuary as well as the church which was built in 1400 A.D. It is known for the exquisite iconostasis. There is a also a small library with historical documents, Greek and Turkish books and fine relics.

 DAY 5 - KHALKI

Swim at one of the beautiful beaches and unwind in this laid back, picturesque island. The main archaeological interest of the island is the ruins of the medieval castle on the top of a hill beyond the village. Inside the castle you can visit the church of Agios Nikolaos.

 DAY 6 - KASTELLORIZO

Visit Kyra of Ro.  Ro has been uninhabited for most of history, except for the one Greek woman who made it famous, Despina Achladioti. Every day, Achladioti, also known as the Lady of Ro, would fly a Greek flag, clearly visible from Turkish soil, over the island, until her death in 1982

Snorkel, swim relax and eat at the islet of Ai Georgios before heading for Kastellorizo harbour. We would recommend dinner at The Mediterraneo Taverna, on the square near the Agios Georgos Tou Horafiou church (Saint George of the Fields. The taverna is named after Gabriele Salvatores' 1991 Oscar-winning Italian war film "Mediterraneo" which was filmed on Kastellorizo.
