Kea Yacht Charters, Greece
Kea, Greece is nestled among the Cyclades and is one of the first islands luxury yacht charter groups embarking in Athens can add a Kea yacht charter to their larger itinerary. Accordingly, there is a great selection of both private motor yachts and sailing yachts for rental, being in proximity to the country’s biggest city Athens. The winding coastline creates an abundance of beaches where visitors can relax in peace and quiet or explore and enjoy the pristine environment using jet skis, kayaks and snorkelling gear. Fishing enthusiasts also have plenty on offer to keep them busy throughout a week-long charter: Bass, grouper and lobster populate the area and fresh catches can be cooked up by your professional chef on the sundeck barbeque.

Underdeveloped and boasting an array of beaches, ruins and heritage museums dedicated to past industry and life on the island, Kea is a wonderland for superyacht charterers searching for unblemished natural scenery and countless opportunities to interact with the environment. Scuba dive in the high visibility sea and swim with the rich marine life, which includes crustaceans, octopus, scorpionfish, reef sharks and turtles.
Athens is a short cruise away, making this idyllic island easy to pair with an itinerary with all the luxuries of a bustling modern city.
Some interesting things to see and do:
If Scuba diving equipment is among the water toys on your chosen yacht charter, guests may have the opportunity to earn their diving license in the wonderfully clear waters of the Mediterranean. For those who have already earned their licence, Koundouros reef is located close to the town of the same name and more experienced divers can explore the Patris wreck lying 40m/131ft underwater.
Kea offers superb locations for a romantic getaway and marking a special occasion in style, and the whole group can enjoy an atmospheric meal together while watching the sunset from the shore, celebrating long into the night with family and friends on the shore or aboard your luxury yacht.
Vourkari is a popular stop for superyacht charterers looking to fit in some shopping before heading off to the undeveloped east and southern sides of the island. For authentic Greek cuisine spend your evening in one of the local restaurants or tavernas and experience the town from a whole new perspective at night.
After spending your energy sightseeing on land or playing on the water toys, unwind on sandy crescents such as Pisses Beach or Karthaia Beach, which has historical sites that make for memorable photographs.
