Experience the Northern Cyclades Islands this summer

26th July 2018

While many holidaymakers will flock to the resorts and major cities of the Mediterranean this summer, Star Clippers will be offering the opportunity to escape the hustle and bustle and experience a true sense of tranquillity. From August through to October 2018, the Star Flyer will operate a number of sailings to the islands of Greece, providing opportunities to delve into ancient history, relax on golden beaches and explore charming towns. So, without further ado, we take a look at three of the stunning destinations you can visit on selected sailings to the Greek Isles.

Patmos

Patmos

Patmos is most historically significant as being the location where Saint John the Divine had his revelation and wrote the Apocalypse. One of the most note-worthy attractions to visit during your time in Patmos is the Cave of the Apocalypse, in which Saint John the Divine documented his revelation and is a UNESCO World Heritage site. The rugged landscape makes for some excellent hiking opportunities providing mesmerising views, while the beaches are in plentiful supply and offer a perfect place to soak up the Mediterranean sun.

Amorgos

Amorgos

The island of Amorgos is slightly more obscure than her sisters and receives a lower number of visitors as a result. It is also one of the earliest inhabited of the islands, with old tombs discovered that date back as far as 3300 BC. One of the most impressive landmarks on the island is the Hozoviotissa Monastery, which is situated on the rocks above the sea and offers incredible views out to sea that will take your breath away. For those seeking a spot of relaxation, one of the best places to head to is Aegali Beach – known for its relaxing sands and waters that are ideal for swimming.

Mykonos

Mykonos

Mykonos is one of the most popular of the Greek islands, with a cosmopolitan image that has attracted plenty of visitors in recent years. Upon arrival, it is easy to see why, with spectacular whitewashed towns with blue domes that are beautifully illuminated by the golden sunset. While there are plenty of beaches and shopping districts to explore, it is also worth taking the time to explore some of the island’s impressive landmarks. One of these is the windmills, which date back to the 16th century and reflect the islands historical status as a great producer of wheat and bread. A climb to the hill upon which these windmills are perched will also reward visitors with mesmerising views of the surrounding area.


The Greek islands make up just some of the destinations you can visit on selected sailings within the Eastern Mediterranean. Other destinations include those in the Adriatic Sea including Venice, Dubrovnik and Kotor; and sites including the Greek capital of Athens and Ephesus, in Turkey.
