Why You Have To Charter A Superyacht In Mykonos

By Editorial Team   1 February 2017

Fast becoming one of the most popular Greek islands for A-listers and discerning travellers, Mykonos is the perfect destination to discover from the comfort of a superyacht.

Situated between Paros and Naxos, Mykonos has certainly developed an enviable reputation for being one of the most beautiful islands in the Cyclades. Indeed, its quaint architecture and undisturbed beaches are regularly compared with the iconic Santorini only a short distance away.

No doubt thanks to its cosmopolitan nightlife, modern seafront restaurants, and azure waters, the island has become a haven for young celebrities and charterers looking to unwind.

Despite being just 33 square miles in size, Mykonos offers plenty to those arriving by motor yacht and sailing yacht.

Exuding a unique colorfulness, the historic streets of Mykonos are totally vibrant by day and beautifully lit by night. Known locally as ‘The Island of the Winds’, the zephyrous climate is wholly inviting throughout the year and just the thing to enjoy after stepping off a superyacht.

Populated by movie stars and sophisticated travellers, there are a number of beaches, archeological sites, and miles of maze-like streets to get lost down.

Whether a vacation is based around romance or simply a chance to enjoy a relaxing environment,  Mykonos offers a variety of options to its visitors. The traditional restaurants located on the east side of town, for example, allow guests to enjoy fine and locally-sourced cuisine whilst taking in breathtaking views which overlook the town and ocean.

Similar to the atmosphere and character of St Tropez and Ibiza, the seemingly subdued island comes alive at night, with a number of trendy clubs by the beach offering an escape for those keen to party.

A superyacht haven, Mykonos offers the very best of everything to charter guests

As well as taking advantage of the hotspots found on the mainland, charter guests will naturally want to head out on their superyacht to discover the more isolated attractions which surround Mykonos.

Perhaps the most exciting destination to visit is the historical island of Delos. Famed for its significance in the mythology of the Cyclades archipelago, the island is now an iconic archaeological site which offers a breathtaking glimpse into Greek history.

Not far away, Rhinia Island, otherwise known as ‘Big Delos’, is home to the four sandy beaches of Glyfada, Sten, Lia, and Ambelia. Totally uninhabited, the island allows charter guests to have their own private piece of Greece entirely to themselves.

With the waters changing from emerald green to turquoise blue along the passage between these destinations, it’s just as enjoyable to kick back and spend time getting to grips with any inflatable toys and tenders available on board.

Having the opportunity to see and do so many unique things in and around Mykonos, charter guests will have no difficulty in planning an itinerary which satisfies the particular tastes of their party.
