Santorini Yacht Charter
Exquisite, spectacular, beautiful and idyllic are just some of the words that can describe the volcanic island of Santorini in Greece, Eastern Mediterranean. With its multi-coloured beaches, cliffs and hilltop towns, you’ll discover traditional Greek architecture nestled beside cosmopolitan restaurants. See the Essential Greece Yacht Charter Guide
Pure white buildings with sapphire-coloured shutters sit by the very edge of the topaz blue sea, making Santorini instantly recognisable as a Greek yacht charter holiday destination. The beautiful towns attract visitors from the world over, however a superyacht charter is the best way to cruise from winery to lighthouse and one spectacular beach after another, including volcanic black-sand beaches along the east coast.
Tholos Naftilos across the bay from the main port is the remains of a now dormant volcano, and visitors can trek up its side for amazing elevated views of the scenery and thermal spa.
Contemporary arts are alive and thriving on Santorini and there are excellent galleries to be found throughout Oia, Fira and Pyrgos. History lovers also have plenty of choice for ambient ruins and carefully preserved museums, such as the Doric city-fortress of Ancient Thira or The Monastery of Prophet Elias.
Santorini is peppered with dives sites to suit all ability levels and luxury yacht charter guests may be able to earn their diving licence during the charter to turn a fantastic holiday into a truly unforgettable one.
Santorini is known as the Black Pearl of the Aegean Sea and is the main island in the Cyclades archipelago. The island is steeped in history and was formed from a volcanic eruption in 1500 BC. This caused the central point of Santorini to sink into the sea, leaving behind a crescent-shaped rim of cliffs.
These sheer cliffs of Santorini’s Caldera tower 300m above the blue waters of the Aegean. They give the area a touch of beauty while hinting at its mythical Greek legends. There’s a black pebbled beach at Kamari and a black sandy cove at Perissa in the south west. Try out your superyacht’s many water toys on the south-east corner of the island or go inland to dine.
The bright white buildings of Santorini tumble down the cliffs and are best seen when approaching from the sea on the deck of your superyacht. Visit the main village of Fira, from which visitors can enjoy spectacular views over the Caldera while exploring traditional Greek gyros and piazzas.
Oia in the north is a village well-known for its amazing sunsets. It’s a very popular place with visitors maintained by gardeners to bring its natural beauty out to its fullest.
As for yacht charter holiday seasons, late spring is a wonderful time to visit the Cyclades on a luxury yacht charter vacation - the landscape is turning green, sea temperatures are warm for swimming and yet it’s fairly quiet too. There are plenty of different types of private yacht rentals available in this part of Greece.
