Alright sailors it's time to hit the sea! We'll board a Greek ship and head straight for the crisp white isle of Mykonos.
Jetsetters and backpackers alike are drawn to this pristine, has-it-all island. Drift off under a beach cabana, snack on olives & tzatziki in a cute cafe, or stroll the white-washed lanes of the Old Town. Tonight you could head out for a few drinks in Little Venice, this quintisential waterside spot is famous the world over, so why not tick that off your list. Back on the boat we'll sleep knowing that you'll be waking up in Turkey.
Rise and shine globe trotters, our captain has kindly escorted us to Turkey! Here in the port town of Kusadasi you can rummage for treasures in the local bazaar or take a trip to Ephesus, the holiday hangout of Mark Antony and Cleopatra where our Local Guide will turn back the clock. Simply incredible, this ancient Roman town is packed full of ruins, and stories galore. Keep an eye out for the two story library, yes the ancient were well ahead of the times even way back when.
Whilst sorting through your new jewellery and carpet collection, our boat will be drifting to the colourful port of Vathy on Samos. First up you could spend the afternoon on the white sands of Tsamadou beach for a private beach experience optional. Back in town you can indulge in some freshly caught seafood and lounge around in a local tavern as the sun sets.
Milos has all the hallmarks of an Aegean island minus the crowds. Making it the perfect oasis for us to unwind and have a complete day of village life relaxation whilst surrounded by Greek Island beauty. You heard it here first, this place is INCREDIBLE. Chalky cliffs, clear blue water, tiny boats, friendly locals, this might be pretty close to heaven on earth. To uncover it all like a pro, you could opt for an island tour by boat, stopping for swims, visit the Sykia Cave for another dip, some volcanic hangs and snorkelling at Kleftiko and an epic buffet lunch on deck. What. A. Day!
This morning we stop back in the trusty favourite of Athens, where you can explore the city and undertake any ventures you missed the first time - back when you were in a haze of a "get me to the islands" attitude.
Back at sea we head towards the island of Syros. Picturesque beyond words and covered in stunning mansions, you can spend your afternoon exploring, roaming the town square or chilling ship side with a cocktail and loving life on the ship.
Today we cross back to the country we've come to know and love - Turkey. In the nest of Cesme you can soak up history and culture, explore local beaches, the pretty clear waters will entice you in an instant. Take a day trip to a beach club, and chill out on a plush lounger or in one of the boutique cafes. Later, we visit Alacati, a town filled with cobblestone streets and popular with the Turkish elite. Another day where epic just won't do it justice.
Leaving Kos, it's on to the beautiful islands of Ios and Santorini.
