Delos Yacht Charters
The island of Delos within the Cyclades archipelago is an archaeologically rich destination for luxury yacht charter groups to explore: Once home to over 30,000 ancient Greeks, the excavations have only uncovered 1/5 of the settlement and superyacht groups are likely to find even more ruins thronging the spectacular beaches. You would certainly want to consider a Delos yacht charter as part of your Greece private yacht vacation. There is a good selection of both motor yachts and sailing yachts at reasonable prices if you book well in advance. Read the full Greece guide here.
Left undeveloped as an example of an ancient town layout, Delos is a fascinating destination with some of the region’s most original ruins. Among the rubble of stone houses is the Temple of Isis, the chalky-white columns of the house of Cleopatra, The Avenue of the Lions and striking examples of mosaics at the House of Dionysus and the House of Dolphins. Hikers will be well-rewarded for their efforts with the Ancient Theatre of Delos and the House of Masks, while Mount Kynthos is the tallest point on the island and presents Delos at its finest.
So, What’s to See?
Naxos and Paros to the south have larger towns built up to cater to modern tourism and your guests could easily incorporate a day of shopping, dining and partying before returning to your private luxury yacht and waking up in Delos the following day.
Swim, snorkel and kayak on this island in peaceful surroundings free from mass tourism and modern day distractions, and spend your time exploring the ruins that create this important UNESCO World Heritage Site.
In Greek mythology Delos is the birthplace of Artemis and Apollo, and the House of Dionysus is part of a collection of works in worship of this deity. Bring along a guide or hire one when you arrive at Port Delos to make the most of your visit to these locations, which include the Ancient Theatre of Delos, the House of Masks and the Lions' Terrace. One you’ve seen the open-air sites, stop off at the Archaeological Museum to see some of the best preserved artifacts in Greece.
If you ever want to move on from the atmospheric serenity of Delos, Mykonos to the east and has a great selection of shops, restaurants and bars for more energetic evenings in the company of locals and other luxury yacht charter groups.
