The Itinerary of the VIP Day Semi-Private Sailing Cruise
The VIP Day Semi- Private Sailing Cruise by Renieris Santorini Sailing Center starting from the marina of Vlychada is a convenient opportunity to enjoy a cruise to the best spots of Santorini. Our mini-bus will take you to the beautiful and tranquil marina of Vlychada and the experience has already begun. The luxurious catamaran Lagoon 450F sails towards the beautiful village of Akrotiri and the famous, scarlet rocks of the Read Beach are now in front of you to take some breath-taking photos. The beach colour changes to white as we sail to the White Beach.
The first stop for swimming is at the black beach of Mesa Pigadia. Use the snorkelling gear provided to explore the underwater landscape of this beach. Then we sail to the Indian Face cliff and the caves where you can take some photos of this impressive setting. The next site is the Venetian Lighthouse of Akrotiri at the southern spot of the island. Get ready to see and feel the real Santorini as we stop at 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 depending on the weather, we stop at Nea Kameni or Thirasia islands for more swimming and a lunch experience made with the finest ingredients accompanied with delicious cocktails. This great experience comes to an end as we dock to the picturesque port of Ammoudi for the mini-bus to take you back to your hotel a little bit happier and more experienced as you have just participated in the Semi- Private VIP Day Cruise from Vlychada by Renieris Santorini Sailing Center.
