Pirates for Planet Route of our Sustainable Sailing Expedition from Milos to Mykonos, Cyclades Islands Greece

Sustainable Sailing Expedition at the Cyclades Islands:
from Milos to Mykonos

Jump onboard our Sustainable Sailing Expedition at the Cyclades, 33 islands and islets of Greece!

We will start our journey in the southwest, on the volcanic island Milos, home to the dreamy white Kleftiko Caves, once a pirate hideaway! From there, we have two possible sailing routes. The first is Milos – Folegandros – Ios – Naxos – Paros – Lesser Cyclades – Mykonos. The other option is Milos – Sifnos – Paros – Naxos – Lesser Cyclades – Mykonos. The exact route will depend on the wind conditions.

What is for sure is that we will sail around Paros, and its surrounding smaller islets, and Naxos, the largest and most fertile of all islands, and with the highest mountains.

After that, we’ll head to the less crowdy, smaller islets (called the Lesser Cyclades). We will end our expedition in famous Mykonos.

ANCHORING

Once arrived at a good spot, we drop our anchor and stay on board the boat or go on land with our little boat, the dinghy. We spend most time at sea but sometimes we’ll visit places on land or go to the harbour.

PIRATE CREW

Get ready to be active! We cooperate as a crew and help with all tasks on board to keep the boat going: sailing, cooking, cleaning dishes, keeping deck and hull clean, and documenting our expedition.

Avviso importante

During the summer months in Greece, there can be very strong northern winds, called meltémi. It is not uncommon that these winds affect ferries, causing delays or cancellations. So if you’re heading back to the airport of Athens/ Mykonos/ Santorini to catch a flight, leave yourself a day extra to make sure you don’t miss it! Same counts for arriving on time at the start of the expedition.
