Nicholas Hidiroglou, CEO of Parsifal Yachting tells us why Greece’s secret Aegean Triangle is his favourite place for a superyacht charter
“Greece is best known for the hotspots of Mykonos, Santorini. Rhodes and Corfu, but there are actually over 2,000 islands to discover. These cruising grounds have many ‘secret’ destinations, considered hidden treasures by the connoisseur yachtsman. The Aegean triangle – Milos, Kimolos and Polyaigos – is less of a commercialized tourist destination than other areas such as Kos or Ios. Charter guests will find that each island has a distinctive character, and every one offers a unique appeal for those who visit. One thing the islands share, though, is a combination of ingredients that make up a dream Greek charter: marvellous beaches, glittering turquiose seas, clear blue skies and year-round sunshine. These islands have been shaped by volcanic forces over millions of years, so the geological features include unique rock formations, geothermal springs and incredible beaches coloured in red, gold, black and white. The range of pastel shades in the rocks and sand around the coastline is extraordinary – you just have to stop and stare in wonder. Colour seems to be everywhere: in the rocks, the sand, the sea, and the sky, and best of all in the most wonderful sunsets.”
