Setting sails on the cobalt waters of the Aegean Sea with your luxurious yacht is a one-of-a-kind experience you should definitely try, at least, once, if you happen to come to Mykonos.
Visit the pristine southern beaches of the island or snorkel and swim in the crystalline coves around the mythical and UNESCO-listed archaeological site of Delos island or its smaller sister Rheina island (a small peaceful, exclusive paradise accessible only via yacht).
Refresh your senses in the crystal clear waters of secluded coves or explore lands not many have laid eyes upon on nearby islands of Paros and Naxos. And, if you feel like it, sail to Tinos island, famous for its Evangelistria church that draws thousands of Christians year round, and its authentic villages.
Drop anchor amidst the sea for a mouth-watering BBQ lunch or traditional Greek meal freshly prepared, cooked, and served on board by skilled chefs (from grilled prawns and kalamari to sautéed vegetables, chicken skewers, tzatziki, and local appetizers) accompanied by lots of champagne, cocktails or other drinks and beverages of your likes, and enjoy unique sunset views on the return voyage with your significant other, family or group of friends as the sun slides behind the horizon.
The World From Above
Take a private helicopter ride and head towards the island of Santorini – a popular destination, world-renowned for its most romantic sunsets and unique volcanic landscape. While there, besides swimming and sunbathing, you may also visit the Museum of Prehistoric Thera, the breath-taking caldera, the beautiful Panagia Maltesa church, the ancient settlement of Prehistoric Thera, or climb up to the crater of the volcano.
Either spend the entire day there or continue your exploration with a 20-minute helicopter ride to Koufonisia islands, whose beaches are rightfully listed among the most heart-stopping ones in Greece. From there, you may fly to Patmos island (or organise a second ride to the island – it is 35 minutes from Mykonos); a significant religious destination mainly because it is home to the Cave of the Apocalypse. However, Patmos also bewilders with its incredible natural environment and the number of islets, bays, and capes whose inviting waters and sandy beaches are ideal for rejuvenating and recharging your batteries after a tedious winter.
Of course, there is much more to see from up above around Mykonos. Your private licensed pilot can take you to places unreachable by any other means, in Delos, Tinos, Siros, Naxos, Paros, and Antiparos islands in no more than an hour. Each one with its own characteristics and special beauties, you will certainly have lots of sightseeing to do. Take in stunning birds’ eye panoramas of the gorgeous blue skies, and endless turquoise of the sea, specked with scenic islands, whose whitewashed architecture, sandy and rocky beaches, beautiful villages and ports, blooming bougainvillaea, and seas ideal for windsurfers are enough to steal your heart, forever.
Mykonos is without a doubt one of the most enchanting global tourist destinations that has all it takes to meet your need for luxury, fun holiday; however, you may define “fun”!
