Yacht Charters Santorini

Magical Views Of The Aegean Sea On Volcanic Soil

Jutting out skyward from the Aegean Sea, Santorini is an island like no other. Its vibrant, colourful houses, dotted within the traditional Greek-island style of white and blue, attract lovers and holidaymakers from across the world.

Every stop you make on Santorini offers magical views from its unique vantage point. Add exquisite Greek cuisine and locally produced wines from its unique volcanic soil, and a yacht charter of Santorini is a recipe for relaxation and pure indulgence.

When is the best time of year to charter a yacht in Santorini?

Summers on the Cyclades islands are busy. As one of the hottest honeymoon and romantic destinations, Santorini is one of the most visited islands in the region. The bustling streets and busy restaurants add to the vibrant charm of this island from June to August. But those who prefer a little extra space for themselves may wish to arrange their boat charter of Santorini on the shoulder months of May or September. 

The summer sun will be at its peak from June to August, with temperatures averaging 28°C, occasionally rising above 30°C in July and August. May is the coolest of the shoulder months, averaging 23°C, and September is perhaps the sweet spot with a median temperature of 26°C.

Must-do Activities While Yacht Chartering In Santorini

Santorini is all about relaxation, romance, indulgence and wonder. Eating, drinking and admiring are thus the must-do activities of this island. Here’s how you’ll want to tick those off.

Soaking up the Sunsets

Santorini is famed for its sunsets as well as its many (many, many) first-class vantage points from where you can watch it. We recommend the following:

 

Oia – this cliff-top town attracts sunset spotters every day looking down over the cave-like hotels and crumbling cliffs. It is one of the most spectacular vantage points, but it will also be one of the busiest. We recommend a booking at one of the many incredible restaurants or bars to secure a comfortable seat.

 

Monastery of Profitis Ilias – opposite Oia, on the other end of the island, is the Monastery of Profitis Ilias. It’s known to fewer visitors and has fewer restaurants and bars around but hosts another one of the best sunset views looking over the entire island.

 
On deck – sunsets from your Santorini yacht charter may not have the sky-high vantage point, but it does offer open space, privacy and the same frothy pink sunsets with a view out across the Aegean Sea as well as the spectacularly beautiful majesty of Santorini.

Discover Ancient Civilisations

Around 1,600 BC, Santorini experienced one of the largest volcanic eruptions on earth, crumbling the middle of the island causing it to disappear into the sea below. This eruption is to be thanked for the vast cliffs and beautiful landscape the island boasts today.

 

What was also left here is an archaeological wonder which can be viewed at the Akrotiri Archaeological Site, where ancient structures and evidence of settlements can be found.

Marvel in its Many Charms

Wandering or boating around Santorini offers nothing but charming settings to make your heart melt. Take a leisurely stroll through the quaint village of Pyrgos.

Tender on your private yacht charter of Santorini and survey the land, stop at Nea Kameni Island and hike to the top of the colossal Santorini Volcano.

Wander the old town, dip your toes in the water. Simply take the time to breathe in the beauty of this island and the romance of your Santorini yacht charter.

Drink Local

Wine has been produced in Santorini for more than 3,000 years. Grown on volcanic soil in such a unique climate, it is unlike any French or Italian wine you will have tried.

 

There are a number of wineries on Santorini, with spectacular views, incredible stories and delicacies beyond just their barrels.

If you only have time for one stop, you’ll want to make that Santo Wines. Santo Wines is a collective representing all of the local growers with more than 1200 active members to showcase the best the island has to offer.

Tantalise the Tastebuds

Many of Santorini’s best restaurants are within its many beautiful hotels. As these tend to have the best views, from their cave-like structures peeking out at the Aegean, they’re the perfect place to tantalise the tastebuds.

 

Homeric Poems in Imerovigli clings to the edge of the Firostegani cliff, offering fine Greek feasts with a view over Caldera. For sushi and lighter Greek delights, OVAC serves up fresh fine dining with an infinity pool in-front, dropping into the ocean ahead.
