Yacht Charters Skorpios

You almost need an invitation to sail past Skorpios on a luxury yacht. A popular escape for the crème de la crème of A-listers since the 1960s, this private island features lush rolling hills and a commanding beauty, unlike many others. Having passed from the hands of the Onassis family to the Rybolovleva tycoon dynasty, the island has now opened its doors to yacht charterers, albeit with a hefty price tag. On a yacht charter of Skorpios, you can explore dramatic coastline cliffs, hidden coves and crystal-clear waters while basking in ultimate luxury and seclusion. If you're feeling active, there's plenty to do on the island, too, from tennis and volleyball to exploring the lush vegetation inland.


The season for a boat charter in Skorpios runs from May to October, with the best months being June, July and August, when the weather is warm and stable. During this time, temperatures sit around 28°C during the day and drop to about 20°C at night.

If you're looking to escape the crowds, May and October are ideal months to private yacht charter in Skorpios as there are fewer visitors to the island. The months can be a little cooler, but temperatures are still pleasant, sitting around 25°C during the day.

Yachting and boating enthusiasts will want to bear in mind the Skorpios Cup yacht race in June and the Antique and Classic Boat Show, which takes place in the picturesque Port of Skorpios each September. The Boat Show sees yacht owners from all over the world come to display their beautiful vessels, and there's also a range of other activities and entertainment on offer.

Outside of the yachting event calendar, August attracts visitors to the Skorpios Film Festival, which screens a selection of independent films from around the world.

Activities & Experiences

Although Skorpios has many off-limit areas, there is still a great amount to do on this wealthy island. We recommend you:

This sheltered cove is only accessible by yacht, making it the ultimate spot to take a dip with only other luxury yachts around. The secluded beach is where Jackie Kennedy used to sunbathe and was even given the name by Aristotle Onassis himself.

The island has its own tennis court and volleyball pitch, both with stunning views. Perfect for families or friends looking to keep active while on vacation.

The white-washed church is one of the most photographed buildings on the island and is definitely worth a visit.

The chic Tsambika Beach Club is the perfect place to enjoy some delicious food and drinks while relaxing in a beautiful setting.

If you're feeling active, there are a number of hiking trails to explore, taking you through the island's picturesque landscapes. There are two trails, in particular, that we recommend. The first leads to the lighthouse and the other to the abandoned monastery.

The Skorpios Taverna is the perfect place to enjoy a traditional Greek meal. The taverna is located in the main port and has a lovely outdoor seating area with views of the harbour. While you're there, wander the port town and browse the exclusive shops.

One of the most beautiful beaches on the island, Agios Sostis, is a must-visit while yacht chartering in Skorpios. The beach is only a short walk from the main port and offers stunning views of the sunset.

There are a number of secluded beaches on the island, perfect for those looking to escape the crowds. Our favourites include Kanapitsa Beach and Kouloura Beach.

Skorpios is part of the Ionian Islands, and there are many other beautiful islands to explore nearby. Our favourites include Meganisi, Lefkada and Kefalonia. All of which can be easily reached on your Skorpios yacht charter.
