Syros Yacht Charter

The Island of Syros, also known as Syra and Siros, lies in the central region of the Cyclades in Greece. Being part of this island complex, the island terrain is generally barren and hilly, as with other islands that are located within the Aegean Sea. Syros is also the capital of the island cluster and considered by superyacht sailors and other yacht charter enthusiast as an important destination for those spending their Greece Yacht Charter vacations in the Mediterranean.

The island’s main port, Ermoupolis, is also its capital. It is a charming town that is organized in a concentric manner, which was established around the sites where we can find old buildings and structures that bear strong neoclassical and Venetian influence. Just like with the other popular island destinations in the region, Syros is home to several quaint villages, most of which are found along the coastline.

Yacht Charter Holiday in Syros

The beaches, either pebbled or sandy, are amongst the main attractions of the Island for the superyachts, and the best ones are found on the southern section of Syros. Popular beaches in the island include Mega Gialos, Agathopes, Kini, Galissas, Ahladi, Vari, Azolimnos, Finikas and Armeos. Syros is also a perfect destination for sailors and tourists who want to experience the unique nighttime entertainment in Greece.

Most of the night spots – restaurants, cafes, bars and clubs – are located in Ermoupolis. This favorite yacht charter holiday destination also features several tavernas, restaurants and other food venues, definitely a perfect place to visit if you want to sample the local dishes and other authentic Greek cuisines.

The prevailing climate in the Island of Syros is generally hot and dry during the months of summer, which is incidentally the time where the most number of tourists and yacht charter enthusiasts visit the island, and generally wet and moderate during the months of winter. Prevailing winds within the region is relatively stable and moderate, an ideal condition for sailing, especially for beginners.

However, the intensity of prevailing winds may become strong during the summer months, which is characterized by meltemi, where the wind blows from the north side at a force of about 3 to 5. This is something that sailing yachts as well as luxury motor yachts should be aware of when considering a yacht charter vacation in this area of Greece. However, there may be short episodes during summer where the wind intensity can go as high as 7 on the Beaufort scale.

Main Attractions and Important Places in Syros

Syros, being one of those holiday resorts in the region that is dubbed as authentic old Greece, features important landmarks and archeological structures that show a glorious and rich history and culture. For those of you on the luxury yacht who are in interested in ancient history, this is a good place to be.

The main attractions and important place in the Island of Syros include the Town Hall, which is located in Miaouli Square of Ermoupolis, the old churches, orthodox and catholics, majority of which are found in Ermoupolis, narrow main streets in the capital town as well as in the main market, and the Island’s many museums, including the Cycladic, Industrial and Archeological.
