GaySail Special: Mykonos-Santorini-Mykonos

Book cruise
Description
This special gay sailing cruise takes you from the gay Island of Mykonos along the southern cyclades Islands to the spectacular island of Santorini. This is the best place on earth to watch a spectacular sunset! After one week we will finish again on Mykonos.

Schedule

Day 1: Mykonos
Boarding starts by 5 pm. After meeting with your Gay Crew in the afternoon, you will be given some tips to explore the rest of this amazing island on your own. It is no coincidence that this, the most cosmopolitan of all Greek islands, attracts so many visitors from the entire globe. Here the steep mountains to be encountered in most of the Cyclades islands give way to low, rocky hills which combine with superb gay beaches. The capital Hora, with its colorful harbor in which little fishing boats nest happily side by side with luxury yachts, presents quite a different picture from that of the majority of Aegean island towns. Mykonos is spread out over a flat area, and the whitewashed streets stand as brilliant white cubic houses with stepped walls for sitting on. Dinner together in Mykonos town Hora and time to explore the local gay life!

Day 2: Mykonos – Paros
Departing from Mykonos in the small hours of the morning and heading for Paros. The first thing you notice when in Paros is the blue transparent sky floating inside dazzling white sunlight. Look on the island for the white Cycladic houses built next to the Aegean Sea. The two large natural bays of the islands Parikia and Naoussa, have beautifully protected sandy beaches.

Day 3: Paros – Ios
Early this morning we pull anchor and start sailing to Ios. A lazy day ahead filled with sun tanning, listening to music and on board meals. We stop at an ideal swimming spot on the way to Ios - the famous tourist destination. Visitors come for its golden beaches and the characteristic Aegean architecture. Ios is well known as the party island with the lively atmosphere and the endless fun. The capital is built at the point where the ancient city was, where white houses unfold and its windmills and narrow small roads can be seen on the hill tops. A great party night is waiting for us.

Day 4: Ios – Santorini
As the sun comes up we head for the magic summer madness of Santorini. It has been said that the sunsets in Santorini are the best in the world. From the Caldera, watch breathtaking views of the volcano & neighboring islands. Santorini is one of the major tourist attractions of Europe with its marvelous climate and perfect observation conditions, you will experience a wild beauty created from a volcano that lies in the middle of the bay. Today you will have free time to explore the island. Still shaky Santorini needs no introduction, being a 1 million year old volcano that remains in active/dormant state until today. Its breathtaking beauty both historically and geologically are awe inspiring making it one of life’s true highlights. The island was home to a Minoan settlement that was obliterated by an eruption around 1650BC which sent tsunamis through the eastern Mediterranean. The colossal eruption displaced 30 cubic kilometers of earth jetting a cloud of ash 36 km into the sky creating the foundation of what we see today. Centrally located in the 300 meter deep 5 -mile wide crescent moon shaped caldera harbour are two new cones, Neas Palaias & Kammenis.

Day 5: Santorini – Amorgos
As the sun comes up we head for the magic summer madness of Amorgos. Amorgos is an island of bare rocky hills 33 km long and up to 6.5 km wide. For the most part the south-east coast falls steeply down to the sea, but the north-west coast is gentler, with two deep inlets - the sheltered Katapola bay and Aegiali bay and several coves like Fjord cove, Kalofana bay and Akrotiri bay proofing that Amorgos should be included in itineraries on our sailing holiday. The population - much reduced by emigration - lives by farming and fishing. Ferries are not frequent, which explains the surprising low numbers of tourists.

Day 6: Amorgos– Naxos
After breakfast in the island we'll sail to Naxos. The island of Naxos is the largest and most central island in the Cyclades. Approaching the island by boat, you can see two small islands to the left and right of the harbor, one with the little church of Myrtidiotissa, and the other called Palatia which is linked to Naxos Town. The imposing gate, Portara is ab ancient marble temple dedicated to Apollo. Ligdamis ordered this to be built in the god's honor in the 6th century B.C After the orientation walk in this impressive island you will have more free time to explore the town and to swim in the warm waters of the Aegean Sea – with an optional excursion.

Day 7: Naxos – Mykonos
Time to sail back to Mykonos. If we are in time we anchor of in front the famous Elia gay beach for swim stop and a drink. Mooring in the marina.

Day 8: Mykonos
Our trip will end here (10:00am) in the stunning waters of Mykonos. After an on board breakfast we say goodbye to our new friends, and disembark the vessel.
