Time spent in Mykonos is always time well spent. Here are just a few things you can look forward to experiencing during your Greek island yacht getaway.

Visit Greece for fun and exploration - Twisting roads in ancient towns

Stroll Down the Winding Streets of the Hóra

Mykonos’ main town is a veritable delight of beautiful streets and stunning architecture. You can never be quite certain of what awaits you around the next corner, bringing an element of surprise and spontaneity to your holiday. You’ll also want to explore Little Venice, which is bursting with an array of quiet cafés and beautiful art boutiques.

Uncover the Region’s Rich History

The Archaeological Museum is open between Tuesday and Sunday, and is opposite Mykonos’ old harbour. Its collection of ancient pottery is particularly impressive, and you’ll have the opportunity to see items decorated with scenes from myths and legends. We also recommend the Folk Museum and the Maritime Museum if you’re keen to soak in as much knowledge as possible.

Admire Mykonos’ Stunning Coastline on your Yacht Getaway

With a variety of gorgeous beaches to choose from, whether you’re looking for somewhere to party (Paradise Beach) or somewhere to indulge in a few moments of peace and quiet (Psarou Beach), you’ll find a stretch of soft white sand with your name on it.

Visit Mykonos’ Most Famous Church

Mykonos quite literally has a church for every day of the year; however, the most famous is the iconic Panagia Paraportiani which dates back to the Byzantine era. Sunset is the ideal time to visit, with extraordinary Greek sunsets providing the ideal spiritual atmosphere to appreciate this very special church. The main entrance holds breathtaking views of the Mediterranean Sea and inside you’ll find an array of religious artifacts — some of which date back to the Middle Ages.

See Mykonos’ Iconic Windmills

Dating back to the 16th century when wind power was used to grind grain, Mykonos’ sixteen windmills are an iconic part of island life. Although they’re no longer used, they’re a permanent reminder of early industrial innovation and the view from their hilltop position is simply breathtaking.
