This sailing adventure is all about exploring the cosmopolitan island of Mykonos and its surrounding islands. You'll also be visiting the islands of Kythnos, Tinos, Delos and Kea in no specific order, depending on wind and weather conditions. Kythnos is renowned for its great seafood and almost tropical waters, while Tinos boasts unique traditional architecture and easily accessible swim spots. Kea, the island closest to Athens, is the place to visit if you’re looking for off-the-beaten-track hiking and Delos is a true highlight of any visit to Greece, with postcard perfect ancient ruins overlooking the Aegean. The island is uninhabited and has been for the better part of the past two millennia, and its proximity to Mykonos makes for the ideal day trip.
The cosmopolitan island of Mykonos, with its vibrant nightlife, pristine beaches, white-washed churches and traditional windmills, is the main focus of this adventure. You’ll have more than enough time to explore the main town, or hitch a local ride to the various villages scattered around the island. You can take in the culture, enjoy some world class dining or take part in various outdoor activities, such as ATV riding, diving, snorkeling or sea kayaking. The sailboat will be at your disposal at all times to take you to various swim spots and beaches around the island that are accessible only by boat.
On a typical day of sailing with Bearing True South, you usually have breakfast on board, allow some time for an early morning swim and then sail to the next destination. You have a break from sailing in the early afternoon for another swim and lunch and an anchor is dropped in a marina or a secluded bay in the early evening. The skippers know where the best food, snorkeling and sights are, so you’re always encouraged to ask for recommendations.
