The itinerary of the 2 Day Nearby Islands Cruise by Renieris Santorini Sailing Center

If you only have a few days to dedicate on the best experience in Santorini then think of the 2 Days Nearby Islands Cruise by Renieris Santorini Sailing Center. 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 to 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 cafés. 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 snorkelling. You may actually recognize the scenery from the famous movie "Le Grand Bleu" which was filmed here and witness for yourself the endless blue and picturesque scenery surrounding this natural gem.

Next stop is Papa beach; an idyllic hidden cove that is not organized. The golden sand and the crystal clear waters are the source of Papa’s immense beauty. This is the ideal destination to relax and enjoy the tranquillity of the natural surroundings.
