Every tourist should make it a point to visit Santorini, a beautiful crescent-shaped island in the Cyclades Islands chain of Greece. A boat charter in Santorini with FGI boat Group is the most luxurious and convenient way to experience the island’s breathtaking scenery, one-of-a-kind beaches, and charming towns.
Envision yourself on a cruise along the island’s azure seas, taking in the breathtaking sights of Santorini’s dramatic cliffs and picturesque beaches. Those with a penchant for beaches will be blown away by Santorini’s breathtaking shoreline. The ‘Red Beach,’ which is sand and is backed by red cliffs, is one of the most well-known beaches on the island. The otherworldly black sands of “Kamari Beach” make it a shoreline like no other and well worth a visit.
After enjoying the island’s stunning beaches, direct your team to head to Firá. Whitewashed buildings constructed into the island’s rugged cliffs that drop off into the sea will grab your attention as you sail towards the island’s capital. Once you reach dry land, wander the town’s winding alleys and tour its many churches and monasteries to fully immerse yourself in the area’s rich cultural heritage. Go north to visit the picturesque villages of Imerovigli and Firostefani, which sit atop the caldera. Oia is a well-known village on Santorini that has managed to maintain its natural, raw attractiveness despite the island’s growing popularity. Take your time as you wander the winding streets and verandas of this charming neighborhood, which is dotted with blue-domed churches and colorful facades. Explore the town and see if you can tell the difference between a traditional cave house and one built for a Venetian sea captain, then descend 300 steps to Ammoudi’s tiny port to watch the sun set over the blue-domed roofs before returning to your charter yacht for a nightcap under the stars.
The island of Leros in the Dodecanese island chain is an excellent option for a day trip from Santorini if you’re looking for a change of pace and scenery. This spectacular island is dotted with picturesque towns like Alinda and Agia Marina, and its impressive medieval fortress and settlements attest to its rich historical past. Outstanding beaches, pristine waters, and a breathtaking variety of marine life are also highlights of Leros. When planning your Santorini yacht hire, don’t forget to include Rhodes. It is one of the most visited islands in Greece and is also known as the Island of the Knights. Rhodes has lush verdant valleys, mountain towns, historic castles, and quiet beaches for visitors to explore. Numerous pristine beaches provide a variety of watersports such as windsurfing and kitesurfing, and some even provide diving lessons and dive trips to investigate ancient wrecks close to the coast. Visit the Old Town, where you can imagine yourself back in time thanks to the fortress, the stone walls, and the cobblestone streets.
Seeing the nation’s capitol, Athens, is a must on any yacht charter to Santorini. Santorini is home to some of the most iconic symbols of Greek culture, and during your yacht charter, you must visit the Acropolis. You can visit the Acropolis and the Temple of Olympian Zeus at the Parthenon, and then end the day with a delicious dinner at one of the city’s many five-star establishments. Sailing around one of Greece’s most beautiful and romantic islands, Santorini, on a chartered boat is an experience you won’t soon forget. There’s fun to be had by all, from discovering the island’s singular shores and quaint towns to traveling to neighboring isles.
