Itinerary

1st hop Arrive in Santorini

If you wish we will meet at our agency in Piraeus Port.

Ferries depart at: 07.25 am or afternoon 17.30. It is recommended to choose to depart early as you will enjoy the day time cruise. Before you reach Santorini, the ferry stops over 3 more islands Paros, Naxos and Ios. 

First and most important hop in Santorini for 2 nights.

Undoubtedly the most extraordinary island in the Aegean, crescent-shape Santorini remains a mandatory stop on the Cycladic tourist route—even if it’s necessary to enjoy the sensational sunsets from Ia, the fascinating excavations, and the dazzling white towns with a million other travelers. Called Kállisti (the “Loveliest”) when first settled, the island has now reverted to its subsequent name of Thira, after the 9th-century BC Dorian colonizer Thiras. The place is better known, however, these days—outside Greece, that is—as Santorini, a name derived from its patroness, St. Irene of Thessaloniki, the Byzantine empress who restored icons to Orthodoxy and died in 802.

Walkers, nature lovers, and devotees of classical and Byzantine Greece would do better to come in spring and fall, ideally in late April through June or September through October, when temperatures are lower and the islands are less tourist-riddled. In late March the islands begin to burst with thousands of varieties of wildflowers, and sprightly crimson poppies dapple stern marble blocks; the sea begins to warm up for comfortable swimming in late May. Autumn’s days are shorter, but the sea remains alluringly swimmable well into October. Autumn travel to the islands also brings rustic pleasures: grapes are pressed in September, and zesty olives are gathered and fields plowed in October.

  • Gorgeous Scenery : Once the vast crater of a volcano, Santorini’s spectacular bay is ringed by black-and-red cliffs, which rise up a thousand feet over the sea.

  • Beautiful Beaches : The strands on Santorini, though strewn with plenty of bathers, are volcanic; you can bask on sands that are strikingly red and black. Gain the experience of walking on the volcanic beaches pumice sand, feels like walking on a matress. 

  • Traditional Architecture : Many shuttered houses are being authentically restored, and much traditional architecture can still be found in the village of Oia.

  • Ancient Wonders : South of Santorini lies the “Greek Pompeii” that is ancient Akrotiri settlement.

  • Wonderful Wines : The locals say that in Santorini there is more wine than water, and it may be true; Santorini produces more wine than any two other Cyclades islands (Paros is second).

2nd hop3 nights in Naxos

Centrally located in the Cyclades, Naxos is a convenient spot for Greek island hopping. In summer, there are many daily ferries from the ports of Piraeus or Rafina in Athens to Naxos, giving thus the opportunity for many Greek island hopping packages from Naxos. Paros, Santorini and Mykonos are the top Greek destinations that you can visit by ferry from Naxos. As the distance is short between these islands, the trip is quick and easy. From Naxos you can also visit many alternative islands that are not so popular, such as Koufonisia, Amorgos, Donoussa, Schinoussa and more.

Things you can do.

1. Swim at the best beaches
First thing’s first; summer is for seaside fun and Naxos offers just the beaches for it! As aforementioned, Naxos is a big island, resulting in a big coastline as well. The most well-known beaches of the island are found mainly on its west side. Popular locations that one has probably heard of even before their initial visit of the island are Plaka, Agios Prokopios, Agia Anna and Sahara (Limanakia). These location names are linked with long, pure white, sandy beaches with crystal clear waters and are rated top on the list of the things to do when visiting Naxos. They are regarded as some of the most beautiful beaches in the Aegean sea, so it is advisable to spend a considerable part of your holiday there. After all, both the organised ones with beach bars and sunbeds as well as the unorganized, secluded ones offer the great tan that visitors are sure to be complimented on back home! Wondering about the transportation? No need to; just book your car with us and get the best rates.
 
2. Visit the cedar forest at Alyko

Another beach that should be on your bucket list, is that of Alyko. It is a region that consists of many small secluded bays with soft white sand and pristine waters. Above the beach of Aliko, there is a unique cedar forest with marvelous sand dunes. There is also an abandoned hotel that has been repurposed into an open gallery for street artists. Some of the most significant works of the renowned artist WD, are hosted here. Moreover, this forest has been declared a protected natural area, so modern infrastructure is almost nonexistent. There are no sunbeds, only a few shops near the area and a delicious canteen where you can taste fast food with a twist, homemade ice-creams and cocktails.

3. Visit nearby islands & hidden beaches
Naxos is located in the middle of the Cyclades complex and is ideal for island hopping or one-day trips to nearby islands such as Koufonisia, Paros and Mykonos. Other ideal single-day tours from Naxos are to the small Cyclades islands: Iraklia, Schinoussa and Donoussa that are less than two hours away from Naxos. You can discover some of those islands with an organized day cruise or you can take a ferry independently.

3rd Hop2 nights in Mykonos

Famous for its minimal Cycladic architecture, Mykonos is full of traditional whitewashed houses and blue-domed churches. The trademark of the island, though, is the beautiful traditional windmills in front of Little Venice, where you can also enjoy the magical sunset and capture the colorful light washing up the island’s Chora (main town). Pure bliss!

Located in the center of the Cyclades island group, Mykonos is one of the most famous Greek islands for its cosmopolitan atmosphere and vivid nightlife! No wonder why it’s widely known as the “Ibiza of Greece”! Mykonos holiday is an experience of a lifetime and there’s a whole heap of amazing things to do in Mykonos. Marvel the amazing sunset from Little Venice Mykonos, stroll around the narrow paved streets of Chora, enjoy your stay at the luxurious Mykonos hotels, dance the day away at epic beach parties and swim at the exotic Mykonos beaches. When the sun goes down, join the nightlife scene of the island and party all night long at the legendary Mykonos clubs!
What’s more, Mykonos is the most popular gay-friendly destination in Greece. The island welcomes every year many LGBTQ tourists, who choose Mykonos for their holidays!
