Departure from Ornos in Mykonos. Within a short and enjoyable boat trip, we reach the small port of Delos, from which you can see the ancient monuments of the island. The holy island for Ancient Greeks, according to the mythology, was revealed through the waves of the Aegean Sea by Poseidon, when Leto – persecuted by Hera – arrived there to give birth to Apollo and Artemis. It is also possible to organize guided tours by professional guides so you can find out more about its rich and impressive history over the centuries. We leave Delos and head for the nearby Rhenia. In antiquity, when the Athenians imposed clearance on the island of Delos, ordering not to give birth or die on the holy island, Rhenia was transformed into a vast necropolis. At the same time, the island was also a sanatorium, where used to end up all the people with the severe illnesses who were no longer allowed to remain in Delos. But it is all in the past and today Rhenia is a true paradise on earth. This unforgettable island possesses virgin beaches with crystal blue aquamarine waters that magnetize anyone who is fortunate to see them. The most famous one is Skinos, known as “Blue Lacuna”. Here you will have the time to swim in the crystal clear waters, sunbathe on the beautiful golden sandy beach, stroll around the coast and enjoy your stay on the boat with the drink and snack that we will serve you. If you prefer an all-day cruise, we will also be able to visit some other beaches of Rhenia such as Lygia, Glyfada, Strada, Lia and Ambelia, which stand out for their unique beauty. On return to Mykonos in the afternoon, you will enjoy the sunset at sea.
