Day 2 - Polyaigos and Milos

Today we'll travel to the island of Polyaigos - an uninhabited island in the Cyclades whose name means "many goats" as they are the only inhabitants of this beautiful place. Being uninhabited means there is natural beauty aplenty to be found here with perfect beaches, stunning, hilly landscapes. You'll stop for a spot of swimming in the clear blue waters and lap up the sun on the beach before we carry on sailing to the island of Milos. Milos is a lovely volcanic island known as the 'Island of Colours', due to the many tones of its coastline and buildings, as well as for being the home of the Venus de Milo, which is now found in the Louvre.  You'll be able to explore the town of Chora and have a swim around the many unique rock formations that are found here.

Day 3 - Santorini

Today you'll visit the famous island of Santorini which is known for its jaw-dropping Cycladic architecture across the cliffs and as being the best place to watch a sunset. Once you arrive you'll take a cable car to Fira town where you'll be able to stroll through the streets lined by the white-washed houses it is well known for. You'll also have the option to take a tour of the city of Akrotiri which was decimated by a volcanic eruption that created the caldera in 1600 BC. You'll end your tour in Oia which is the place to watch the sunsets. You'll have the option to hike back towards Fira to enjoy this stunning spectacle before enjoying dinner on the boat and continuing sailing to Patmos. 

Day 4 - Patmos

On this day you'll arrive at the island of Patmos which is a famous pilgrimage site for Christians around the world due to being the supposed birthplace of the Bible's 'Book Of Revelations'. After enjoying breakfast on the boat you'll visit two UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The first of these is the Grotto and Monastery of St John which is found within the walls of a great fortification. Here is where the Book Of Revelations was purported to have been written. From here you'll then take in the medieval town of Chora which is full of other historic sights. In the afternoon you'll have the opportunity to visit the capital - Scala - or go for a swim at a local beach. 

Day 5 - Kusadasi (Turkey)

You'll continue the morning sailing over to Kusadasi, Turkey. This island is known as the 'Island of Birds' due to the island being shaped like a birds head and for also being the seasonal migration spot for many species of bird. You'll start with a tour of one of the most important archaeological sites in the Cyclades known as Ephesus. This ancient Greek city, built in the 10th century, is a popular tourist spot and gives you a glimpse back into what the Greek empire would have been like. Explore the preserved streets of this historical site and learn about the history of Kusadasi before enjoying time in the town to shop around the small stalls. In the evening, you'll continue sailing to the island of Mykonos.

This is one of the most famous and popular islands in the Cyclades due to its natural beauty and for being a hub for LGBT tourists due to its welcoming inhabitants and large gay community.
