Cyclades Islands Yacht Charter Guide Cyclades Islands Yacht Charter Guide

Cyclades is the most famous group of islands in the Aegean and includes some of the most beautiful islands in the Mediterranean! The charming white and blue coloured Cycladic architecture, the traditional lifestyle, island songs, warm hospitality, the land with no vegetation dotted by deserted country chapels, an amazing coastline and excellent sandy beaches all form a harmonious blend, making a trip to Cyclades truly unique.

The islands have a total land area of 2,528 sq km. Out of the 2,200 islands, islets and smaller rocks, only 25 are populated today. The capital, Ermoupoli, is located on Syros island. The name “Cyclades” means “the islands that form a circle” around the sacred island of Delos. Greek mythology refers to Cyclades as a creation of Poseidon (or Neptune), who turned Cyclades nymphs into islands, when they incurred his wrath. Cyclades have been inhabited since the prehistoric times; however Cycladic culture flourished between 3200 B.C. and 1100 B.C. (Early Cycladic, Middle Cycladic and Late Cycladic Period) when the islands, due to their geographic position, became a trade and cultural centre. In the 16th century B.C, the eruption of the volcano of Thira (Santorini) brought the region’s development to a halt. A few centuries later Dorians settled in the Cyclades.

During the Byzantine period, the Cyclades islands belonged to the Aegean Theme (Administrative Division) and later passed to Venetian and Frankish rulers. For many centuries these islands suffered pirate raids, which was why they were granted permission to build ships and fight back the pirates during the Turkish occupation. With the Treaty of London in 1830, the islands were freed and became part of the Greek state.

Today, millions of Greek and foreign travellers visit the Cyclades islands, looking for bright sunlight and clear blue waters to create their own version of a “magic holiday”.
