WHAT YOU WILL DO

Our starting point will be the Vlychada marina where our Captain and crew will welcome you aboard the “Santa Maria”. Your journey begins by sailing through the famous Caldera of Santorini, pass the Red and White beaches.
Our next stop is Ios island and the organised beach of Milopotas. Located close the main village, Chora, Milopotas offers sun beds, a variety of restaurants and bars as well as water sports. We will dock at the main port of Ios where you can spend the night exploring the main village with its many bars and cafes. The island is famous for its nightlife but there’s another side to it as well.
In the morning, we embark for the unspoiled beach of Magganari at the south end of Ios island. Magganari is one of the most picturesque beaches of Ios. The secluded bay is protected from strong winds. This is the place for a lovely swim or snorkel. You may actually recognize the scenery from the famous movie "Le Grand Bleu" which was shot here and witness for yourself the unending blue and picturesque scenery surrounding this natural gem.
Next stop, Papa beach. An idyllic hidden cove that is not organized. The golden sand and the crystal clear waters are what compose the beauty of Papa. This is the ideal destination to relax and enjoy the tranquility of the natural surroundings.
After a relaxing day and a peaceful night’s sleep, we will head back to Santorini, accompanied only by the sound of the wind and the waves.
