Bespoke Island Hopping: 2023


Katya Ellis jets off with SHY Aviation to explore this year’s top destinations across the Greek and Spanish Islands

Imagine this: a warm, gentle Mediterranean breeze wafting in through your window, the serene lullaby of waves kissing the shoreline, a glass of world-class wine in your hand and a view of the setting sun that leaves you breathless. Welcome to an idyllic summer in the Greek and Spanish Islands, a playground for the elite, the discerning and those who travel by the wings of a private jet.

Let us begin our journey in the Greek Islands, the azure heart of the Mediterranean, where time seems to halt and life is savoured in unhurried moments. If tranquillity in an upscale setting is what you seek, look no further than Mykonos. Nestled amidst the Cyclades, Mykonos is home to an array of high-end resorts that effortlessly blend the island’s traditional architecture with modern sophistication. Dine in Michelin-star restaurants or stroll around the glamorous shopping streets - Mykonos promises a delightful fusion of vibrant culture and stylish living.

No mention of the Greek Islands would be complete without the inclusion of Santorini. Famed for its breathtaking sunsets and unique landscapes, this island offers luxury villas carved into cliffs overlooking the azure sea. A private catamaran tour around the island, followed by a tasting of the local Assyrtiko wine, is a quintessential Santorini experience not to be missed. Both Mykonos and Santorini provide excellent facilities for private jet landings, ensuring smooth transitions from your jet-set journey to your island paradise.

As we drift­ westward to the Spanish Islands, the archipelago of the Balearic Islands unfolds. Ibiza, often dubbed the “party capital of the world”, is so much more than its vibrant nightlife. Its private villas, tucked away in the hills, o‑ er a serene retreat from the world. A personal chef preparing fresh seafood paella as you overlook the Mediterranean Sea from your infinity pool, could there be anything more indulgent?

For the elite traveller, Ibiza’s neighbour, Mallorca, is no less enticing. Known for its stunning coastline, lush mountains and golden beaches, Mallorca’s luxury property market boasts an impressive portfolio, from grand country estates to modern waterfront villas. Port Adriano, designed by Philippe Starck, offers an elegant and exclusive marina for super-yachts, and with Palma de Mallorca Airport accommodating private jets, access to this beautiful island is hassle-free.

Finally, the relatively untouched island of Formentera, with its Caribbean-like beaches, offers an idyllic escape. The island is dotted with exclusive villas available for those seeking privacy and the simple yet re ned pleasures of life.

The Greek and Spanish Islands, in their sun-drenched splendour, offer high-net-worth individuals not just destinations, but experiences, etching lasting memories through unparalleled luxury, cultural richness and natural beauty. An adventure to these islands isn’t just a summer journey; it’s a testament to the elegant opulence of life itself. So, as you plan your next private jet venture, consider the exquisite allure of these Mediterranean gems - they are, quite simply, beyond compare.
