Located in the Aegean Sea, Cyclades island group, Mykonos island is the most cosmopolitan of all Greek islands and one of the most attractive sailing destinations worldwide. The island's landscape is a symphony of bare rocky hills and arid, only moderately fertile soil.
In Mykonos town, Chora, you will find everything. From a huge selection of shops and super markets to tavernas, posh restaurants, cosy bars and night clubs. Although Mykonos is considered to be an “expensive” island, there are reasonably priced places too. Just avoid the main touristy areas where prices are high and quality is mediocre.
Myconos is also reputed for its exciting nightlife, from new age-trendy beach clubs to all-night dance stages and from relaxed bars to wild gay venues.
Although it is such a small island, it has a large variety of beaches that will satisfy any taste.
The new small marina in Tourlos (the new port), situated North of the old ferry harbour of Mykonos, is usually overcrowded and available dock space for charter yachts is hard (sometimes impossible) to find. You may prefer to anchor one of the bays around the island.
