Blue domed churches and whitewashed villas, many apparently clinging to the sides of cliffs are just some of the sights you will see from your yacht charter in Greece. This type of scenery can be found everywhere in the most famous Mediterranean island group, the Cyclades. Santorini and Mykonos are the stars - Santorini with villages looming over the sea on the steep, volcanically produced caldera and Mykonos with its gentle beaches and picturesque windmills, it is easy to see why. But there are so many others vying to be noticed such as the flower filled, no-cars-allowed Hydra, the green hills of Cefalonia in the western Ionians, or the architecturally rich Dodecanese Islands of Symi, Patmos and Rhodes. Explore the beauty and culture of this ancient country on a Greece yacht charter.
