The Itinerary of the Sunset Semi-Private Sailing Cruise
The Sunset Semi-Private Sailing Cruise by Renieris Santorini Sailing Center starting from the marina of Vlychada is an amazing sailing experience carefully designed for those who want to enjoy only the best of coastal Santorini as well as the unique spectacle of the sunset on board. Our mini-bus will bring you straight to the beautiful marina of Vlychada or Santorini’s fishermen’s port as it is also known. Once you embark on our luxurious catamaran we will sail to the beautiful village of Akrotiri and the famous, scarlet rocks of the Read Beach where you will have some amazing photo opportunities. The beach colour changes to white as we sail to the White Beach, where you will admire the many colours of Santorini’s beaches.
The surprises don’t stop here though. Well the beach colour changes once again to black as we make our first stop for swimming at the black beach of Mesa Pigadia. Use the snorkelling gear provided to explore the underwater landscapes of this beach; you will be amazed. We then sail to the Indian Face shaped cliff and the caves where you can take some photos at this impressive setting. The next site is the Venetian Lighthouse of Akrotiri at the southern spot of the island. Get ready now to see and feel the real Santorini as we stop to the Sulfur Springs to enjoy swimming at the warm mineral waters that will rejuvenate your skin. The next stop is all about gastronomy on board, so according to the weather we stop at the Nea Kameni or Thirasia islands for more swimming and a dinner experience made with the finest ingredients.
As you are now holding your favourite drink at hand get ready to live the experience that you were waiting for. The sun begins to set and we are facing this breath-taking spectacle of the sunset in Santorini. Words are poor to describe the beauty of the sun painting the Aegean Sea red. A great experience comes to an end as we return to the marina of Vlychada for the mini-bus to take you back to your hotel a little bit happier and more experienced as you have been part of the Semi- Private Sunset Cruise from Vlychada by Renieris Santorini Sailing Center.
