Sailing Around Ikaria & Fournoi Islands

The Aegean Sea & Greek Islands around Ikaria are a sailing paradise and the short distance between Ikaria and its island neighbor, Fourni, makes Ikaria's south coast an ideal base for sailing trips. Different sailing boats are available for charter depending on the season, your budget and the number of people in your group.

Enjoy a fun filled day of sailing with friends & family to Fourni's beautiful beaches and mysterious hidden coves. The Fourni Islands, also known as the "Pirate Islands", used to be a haven for pirates and their ships!

A typical trip can include stops for snorkelling, scuba diving, kayaking and swimming at a secluded cove or sandy beach, a visit to the scenic fishing port of Fourni and lunch at a seaside taverna or onboard. The sailboats can be chartered from either the new marina in Agios Kirikos or Faros Beach, and multi-day bareboat or crewed charters are also available for those wishing to visit other nearby Greek Islands.

Information for Visiting Charter Yachts & Catamarans

Ikaria has two main harbors where visiting charter yachts and catamarans can berth securely. Evdilos in the north and Agios Kirikos in the south.

A new yacht marina has just been completed just to the north of Agios Kirikos port. Currently the new marina is offering limited services and boats are not being charged. Water is available on the piers, but not electricity. Fuel delivery can be arranged with local providers. Yacht repairs are not yet available. Banks, restaurants, cafes, shopping, self-service coin laundry and transportation are located nearby within walking distance. There is also a small natural thermal pool located within the marina offering guests a natural spa therapy. Boats tie up alongside the piers, no mooring lines are available and anchoring is not recommended.

Visiting bareboat yachts and catamarans can also anchor in the bay and beach area of Faros which is at the north-east end of the island near the airport. Shelter from the prevailing Greek Islands NE winds is good and the bottom is sand with good holding. Seaside tavernas and cafes are located on the beach and swimming is pleasant as there are rarely waves in the bay in summer. A small pier is located in the center of the beach where tenders from sail boats may dock.
