average daily hours of sailing
Day 1: Salamina - Aegina (3.5h)
Our trip starts and the first stop will be Agia Marina Bay in Aegina island. This is a famous spot for anchoring where we will be able to swim under the charming sunset that the area offers. We can spend the night at the port or anchored at the bay.
Day 2: Aegina - Kea (5.5h)
Our destination today is the cove of Koundouros, located at the southeastern coast of the island. Koundouros is a quite cove, with many of sailing yachts and small motor boats visiting on a regular basis. It’s a nice place for swimming and offers good shelter to northern winds, which makes it a good choice to spend the night.
Day 3: Kea - Serifos (5h)
Serifos is the next island to the south of Kythnos and is recognizable by its domed shape. The main port of Serifos is Livadi to the south east of the island and is at the head of a spectacular bay. The quay is often crowded, but anchoring near the beach is no problem although sometimes two ‘hooks’ are advisable. A great spot where we can anchor the boat is at Psili Ammos in the southern part of the island with the crystal clear waters and the golden sand.
Day 4: Serifos
The whole day today will be spend on exploring this beautiful island. Serifos Island, with its rugged mining sites, ladened with history, has its own distinct Cycladic flair. The island exudes a calm atmosphere and speaks directly to your senses. Despite its arid and wild land characteristics, Serifos is gracefully embraced by the deep blue colors of the Aegean Sea and has some magnificent beaches. Chora town is built amphitheatrically on a rocky hill commanding the island from the top. It is one of the most elegant Cycladic towns that will inspire you, even before the ship docks, on your arrival to Serifos. You’ll get to visit two neighborhoods; Pano (meaning upper) Chora and Kato (meaning lower) Chora connected by a stairway. You’ll find some bars, cafés and tavernas in the town’s narrow streets blending in with the whole scene harmoniously. It is worth taking a 10 minutes walk up to the Venetian castle, built in the 15th century, to drink in the view of the blue sea!
Day 5: Serifos - Kythnos (3h)
On day 5, we will sail to Kythnos island. The Kolona bay is ideal for swimming and relaxing as it offers very good shelter from all wind directions. The landscape is rare, as a sandy beach cuts the bay at two sides. We can spend the night at Merichas, the main port of Kythnos island where we can find plenty of small taverns with great seafood.
Day 6: Kythnos - Sounio (4h)
After a nice breakfast we will sail to the Cape of Sounio. Enjoy your swim and relax under the spectacular Temple of Poseidon, a place that you could also visit by taxi (5 minutes away from the shore). According to the myth, the ancient king of Athens, Aegeus ended his life in cape Sounion when he saw the boat of his son Theseus returning from Crete with black sails, false sign that his son was dead.
Day 7: Sounio - Salamina (6h)
After an amazing experience we had on the area of the Western Cycladic Islands, we will have some time to enjoy the sea and the sun at Sounio and we will have the chance for a last dive in the beautiful waters of Kanakia Beach in Salamina.
