What season is the best to charter a yacht in Santorini?

The weather in Santorini is typically warm and sunny, with hot summers and mild winters. The high season for boat rentals in Santorini runs from May to September, coinciding with the peak tourist period. During these months, the weather is at its best, with long days of sunshine and warm sea temperatures, making it an ideal time for swimming, snorkeling, and sunbathing. However, it's important to note that this period can be quite busy, and boat rentals may be in high demand, so it's advisable to book in advance.

While the weather may be cooler and the sea temperature slightly lower, it's still possible to enjoy boat rentals during this time.

Where to hire a boat in Santorini?

One of the most popular ports is the Athinios Port, located approximately 8 kilometers from Santorini Airport. Athinios Port serves as the main port of entry for ferries and cruise ships, and it also offers boat rental services. It provides various facilities, including parking, restaurants, and shops, making it a convenient starting point for your nautical adventures. Another popular option is Ammoudi Bay, situated below the picturesque village of Oia.

Where to sail on your yacht charter in Santorini?

Santorini got its name from the Venetians, who worshipped it and called it Saint Irene. It is a volcanic bay within the ring that lies south of the Cyclades Islands archipelago. The Santorini Caldera, formed by the remnants of successive volcanic eruptions, is widely known for its anchorages.

As you approach Santorini by sea, you will be amazed at the stunning view of the island: as if made of porcelain, the white facades of the little houses with blue roofs seem to be carved into the rocks. Absolutely stunning!

Due to its unusual and bright exterior, this island is widely known around the world and is a very popular choice, its mesmerizing landscapes attract hordes of tourists from all over the world. If you don't want to fight for a place in the sun, a yacht cruise along the coast will allow you to enjoy Santorini's magical views firsthand, as well as swim in the wild beaches and secluded coves with total exclusivity.

However, if you want to stretch your legs and walk around the island, Click&Boat recommends the must-see sites for your visit.

Ancient Greece

If you are a history and culture enthusiast, and don't want to miss the major monuments, you definitely need to visit the Akrotiri Archaeological Site. It is also called "Minoan Pompeii", which is quite deserved, as it is a huge city by ancient standards, with incredible architecture, beautiful frescoes, sculptures and reliefs.

You can also visit Fira, an ancient city that offers breathtaking views, as it is located on top of a high hill. Here you will find ancient ruins of temples and theaters, residential buildings and the market square. Walking through the city, you can imagine how people lived here thousands of years ago. And if you want to dig deeper, the city also offers several museums dating back to prehistoric times.

Unusual Beaches of Santorini

If your soul calls for unusual landscapes and scenery, you should definitely visit the Beach of Vlychada: for a few moments you may feel that you are not in Santorini, but on another planet, due to the unusual rock formations, the rugged coastline and the sand and pebble beach, which make this beach different from the others in Santorini.

It is easy to get there from the village of Perivolos, located south of the island of Santorini.

Another totally unbelievable beach in Santorini is the Red Beach of Akrotiri.

The beach owes its rich orange-red color to the mineral composition of the sand and rocks that cover it. The contrast of colors is made even more attractive by the intense blue of its sea. To best admire the splendor of this beach (and avoid the crowds!), nothing is better than from the deck of your own boat. Renting a boat allows you to reach these more remote locations with ease, while ensuring a tour in complete privacy and exclusivity with your friends or family.

In general, Santorini has absolutely beautiful beaches, but this beauty is different, not standardized. The Perissa Beach, for example, boasts a strip of black sand. All this contrasts with the brilliant blue of the Aegean Sea and the imposing Mount Mésa Vounó, at the foot of which the beach is located, creating a stunning landscape!

Hire a boat with or without a skipper?

No license is required to sail around Santorini. You can charter a boat with a skipper, or even with an on-board crew, which will ensure you and your family a serene journey across the Mediterranean Sea.

If you are an experienced sailor, we have good news for you- on our platform, you can also find your dream boat available for rent without captain. Therefore, you will be the captain! Just contact the boat owner via Click&Boat's internal messaging system and settle these details.
