Mykonos Luxury Yachting Guide

Famous for its charming cosmopolitan towns, fabulous nightlife and sublime beaches, Mykonos is a hedonistic delight. A vibrant heart surrounded by quiet corners, this fabulously flamboyant island is blessed with an intangible and inexplicable sense of youthful jubilance that stays with travellers long after they depart.

Widely considered a Mediterranean hotspot, Mykonos is as entertaining as it is picturesque, whether visitors desire a week-long party or endless days lounging on spectacular beaches and being luxuriously pampered.

Chora
The perfectly curved bay is the first tempting glimpse of Mykonos to greet travellers, where colourful fishing boats nestle happily alongside luxury yachts. Chora, the main town on the island, is the most happening of the Cyclades, attracting the world’s jet set with its bright and atmospheric lifestyle.

The best way to explore this enthralling town is to venture inland from the port and wander the labyrinth of white-walled streets that manage to both captivate and confuse. Filled with chic galleries selling brilliant local works, classy boutiques stocked with designer swimwear, and unique jewellery stores offering ancient Greek inspired designs, the narrow streets are a trendy shopper’s delight.

Little Venice
Little Venice is another must-see destination, where the sea laps right up to the edge of fashionable restaurants and bars highly prized for their amazing sunset views. This glitzy area is also home to Mykonos’s most famous sight; five hill-top windmills hovering on the skyline to create postcard-perfect pictures.

Whether visiting in summer or winter, Mykonos remains active throughout the seasons unlike some of its Cycladic neighbours. Always a pleasant buzz of activity, once the summer revellers have left the beaches peacefully quiet, Mykonos hosts a number of cultural events including a small film festival.
