Why has Mykonos become the leading superyacht hotspot in the Mediterranean?
If, when speaking of charter yachts and private yachts, Greece represents the center of the Mediterranean, Mykonos is certainly its beating heart. Located in the archipelago of the Cyclades islands, Mykonos has become the most famous (like Santorini), thanks to a mix of factors including beautiful beaches, incessant nightlife, and a relaxed environment. These characteristics have also made it an essential stop for yacht charter cruises in Greece.
Most boaters looking for fun in a unique setting between parties by the sea with international DJ sets, selected clientele and postcard views have elected this island as their Mecca.
Mykonos knows how to please everyone
According to many experienced brokers and skippers, the main reason why Mykonos has achieved this fame is that it has been able to exploit what the island has to offer better than others. It has more than 20 fantastic golden sandy beaches for all tastes: family beaches like Lia, trendy beaches like Psarou, and quiet beaches like Agios Sostis.
It occupies a strategic stretch of the sea as it is located in the middle of the Cyclades and the Aegean Sea, offering rapid connections with the other islands and the mainland.
It has the widest possible range of services for tourism, from economic to extra luxury, without losing its peculiar Greek soul.
Let’s find out in more detail the reasons for this success:
A prime location in the Aegean Sea
Getting to Mykonos couldn’t be easier. Whether you decide to sail directly from the island, arriving at its convenient airport, or whether you reach it from another tourist port, such as Athens. More and more often it is also an essential destination for cruise passengers who sail the Greek waters.
Its privileged geographical position makes it an excellent place to start or finish a charter through the Cyclades or as a starting point for visiting other islands of the archipelago, such as Santorini, Paros, and Naxos.
For those looking for a quiet anchorage where spend more nights on the island, the bay of Ornos, located in the southwest, is one of the most popular as it is sheltered from the Meltemi, the fearsome wind that blows in the summer months, it is also strategic for accessing some of the best beaches on the south coast such as Platis Gialos.
Beautiful beaches equipped to welcome tourists from yachts
In life, the details often make the difference. This is even more true when it comes to welcoming tourists from luxury yachts and superyachts and Mykonos is truly the leader.
In fact, almost all the beaches have floating piers that facilitate the embarkation and disembarkation of tourists coming from the sea, avoiding them getting wet when landing. Moreover, many of the restaurants and clubs on the beaches offer their customers the tender service to and from their yachts, accompanying them thanks to boats such as simple motorized inflatable boats up to real fiberglass vessels more than 20 feet long that can accommodate several people.
Mykonos: trendy clubs, VIPs, and all night long parties
Mykonos is famous all over the world thanks to its wild nightlife that every summer attracts thousands of tourists in search of high and fun. Obviously, even in this case, the island guarantees all sorts of clubs and events for all tastes and budgets, from beach parties that last all night to discos frequented by world-famous DJs.
Among the most prominent beach clubs is Nammos Beach Club, often referred to as the best beach club in the world.
Famous for organizing unforgettable beach parties in the evening, Nammos also offers formal lunches and dinners in a curated lounge area and a boutique for shopping.
Unique landscapes and Greek culture
However, Mykonos is not only parties and entertainment but it also offers the opportunity to get a taste of Greek culture. It is in fact a historic island with its traditional windmills, the classic alleys of the city center (the so-called Chora), and the inevitable white houses embellished with balconies and flowery arcades.
The most famous neighborhood of Mykonos is certainly Little Venice, with houses built flush with the water that once belonged to wealthy merchants and shipowners. Today the area is populated by cafes and restaurants to eat just a few steps from the waves, but there is no shortage of art galleries and the most fashionable shops.
An impressive hustle and bustle fill the labyrinth of alleys throughout the historic center of Mykonos throughout the day, including street concerts and performances at the Anemo Theater, set in a large garden overlooking the city.
