Why yachting in Mykonos is an absolute must
If one would ask for a synonym of Mykonos the answer would most probably be “the island with the most amazing beaches in the Cyclades.” There are so many of them, given the small size of the island, that it would take weeks for a traveler to discover them all and learn to enjoy their special beauties. Some of the beaches are easily accessible by car or by small boats that do round trips for hundreds of sun-bathers every day.
But if you go for the real thing then the only way to immerse yourself in the delight of crystal clear waters, so transparent that you can see even the tiniest fish swimming above the golden sand and to indulge to the luxury of an almost privately owned paradise then yachting in Mykonos is an absolute must. Sailing around its spectacular coastline and its neighboring islands is a once in a lifetime experience to not miss. Enjoying the fascinating view of the island or one of the world famous sunsets on the neighboring Delos Island from the deck of a beautiful vessel, whether it is a classic treasure, like a handmade wooden “caique” or a super-yacht, equipped with state of the art facilities and providing services of exceptional luxury, is a unique experience, quite close to a living dream.
Sailing made easy
Chartering a yacht in Mykonos is quite easy since there are many agencies operating on the island that offer an interesting variety of rental boats. The crews are usually vip trained and can enhance the yachting experience by organizing an exclusive tour on ancient Delos, a delicacy lunch on the beach or a romantic candle-lit dinner under the full moon, while sailing towards a deserted paradise-like beach for a perfect night sleep. Depending on the weather, the captain will schedule the ideal itinerary for you and make sure that you have a most memorable, safe cruise.
And if you feel like going back to the town, where the partying never ends, you can always find a berth in one of the islands’ marinas: both the one in the port of Mykonos and the Tourlos marina are safe harbors where you can easily moor your vessel. In Mykonos Marina, the harbor’s one, there is access to drinking water, electricity, a full service station for ships with ramp and crane, bank, car rentals and, of course, bars and restaurants.
Tourlos Marina is 20 minutes away from the center of Mykonos, on foot and welcomes pleasure boats of all sizes. Its facilities include internet access, mooring assistance, drinking water and electricity, fuelling, pharmacy, bar & restaurant, supermarket plus additional services such as gas, side bunkering, and laundry service.
