Aeolian Islands, Italy

The Western Mediterranean is full of “secret” islands. These little-known and mostly untouched slices of paradise offer a great opportunity to escape the hustle and bustle of mainland Europe while still staying in complete luxury aboard your private yacht. 

Few airports and ferries in the surrounding areas means that the secret islands on this list are so off the beaten path and hard to access that they escape the attention of most European tourists. On a crewed yacht charter to the area, you’ll have the opportunity to sail right up, drop anchor, and go ashore for some relaxation in peace and quiet on glistening sandy shores.

It’s impossible to cover the island’s entire history and mythos, because Samos was home to so many notable people in real life and in legends. Pythagoras, Aristarchus, Epicurus, Eupalinos, Herodotus, and Aesop are among Samos’s real-life historical residents. 

The Tunnel of Eupalinos and The Cave of Pythagoras are reminders of two men who once lived on the island. Between them, they made several contributions to humanity.

According to ancient myths, Hera, the wife of the Greek god, Zeus, also lived on Samos. The ruins of her temple lie in the southern part of Samos. It once contained 155 colossal columns, but today only one is left standing. Interestingly, this temple bears remnants of three or more temples that were there before, so the site has clearly been a place of worship for thousands of years. 

Other historical places to see include the Roman Baths, the Castle of Lykourgos Logothetis, the convents of Zoodochos Pigi Aliotissa, the monastery of Agia Zoni, the church of Timios Stavros, the church of Panagia Sarandaskaliotissa, and the Sarakini Tower.

Explore the Samos Archaeological Museum

For a more structured tour through history, the Archaeological Museum is an excellent choice. It contains numerous examples of artifacts from the island’s archaeological sites and even features an enormous statue from the 6th century BC. 

Enjoy the peaceful natural surroundings

Samos, Greece

If a refreshing hike up Mount Kerkis or a day relaxing on the beach sounds appealing, Samos can deliver. 

The highest point of Mount Kerkis is the peak named Vigla. The hike features rare native plants and several different species of birds of prey, which should delight nature enthusiasts during the 4,701-foot journey. 

Kerveli Beach offers unmatched peace and seclusion. Other lovely beaches include Psili Ammos Beach, Posidonio Beach, Heraion Beach, and Tsamadou Beach. The latter is relatively well-populated, with several nearby restaurants and taverns, but it’s also known as one of the most beautiful beaches on Samos. 

An important island in both Greek mythology and history, Samos today, directly across from Kusadasi, Turkey should be on any charter itinerary from Kusadasi Turkey to Rhodes, Greece, cruising the Greek Dodecanese Islands.

Visiting Tinos, Greece During A Cycladic Islands Luxury Yacht Charter

Tinos Island, Greek Islands

Tinos Island Village

The Greek Island of Tinos, located in the Aegean Sea, is the third largest island of the Cyclades group. The Phoenicians are believed to be the first people to live on the island during ancient times, followed by the Ionians somewhere around the 11th century BC. Over the next several centuries, the island would again change hands: the Eretrians, the Persians, the Egyptian Ptolemies, and, eventually, the Roman Empire all staked their claims at various times. Tinos didn’t find stability until the Venetian rulers in the 1200s AD were able to repel Turkish attackers and retain control of the island. In 1830, Tinos became part of modern Greece.
