Santorini & Ios Private Luxury Sailing Cruise

Description

Get ready for a full-day adventure that includes not only the best of Santorini but also a visit to the nearby island of Ios with the golden sandy beaches. Embark on the Ios Private Luxury Cruise by Renieris Santorini Sailing Center and the luxurious yacht Santa Maria at the marina of Vlychada where the experience begins. Sail towards the Red Beach, the White Beach or the Mesa Pigadia beach, depending on your preferences. The “Indian Face” cliff and the Lighthouse of Akrotiri will be our guide towards the famous caldera of Santorini.

A quick swim at the Hot Springs promises a warm and rejuvenating experience. Looking at the caldera from land you cannot imagine the beauty hidden under its cliffs but here at sea level it all unfolds before your eyes as we sail along the coast. The small hidden church of Eftapedes, Armeni Bay and the little island of Saint Nicolas with the small church on top are waiting for you to climb up. Riva, the port of Santorini’s sister island Thirassia is so close to Ammoudi Bay you can almost reach out and touch it.

Then the prow of the luxurious yacht Santa Maria is looking at the beautiful island of Ios. It won’t take us long to reach the golden sandy beach of Magganari, or if you prefer, any other beach of Ios. The island offers a range of beaches with crystal clear waters and golden sandy shores! If you want to sail beyond Santorini then the Ios Private Luxury Cruise is your best choice.
