mykonos – Top yacht charter destination
The Aegean Sea is eternally appealing. Think aquamarine water, dazzling sunshine, wind fanning the sails of your luxury yacht… These elements all add up to offer one of the world’s sailing hotspots. Its charms are seldom found beyond the Mediterranean Sea, of which the Aegean is a part. Mykonos is the jewel in the Aegean’s crown and the pride of the Cyclades Islands (the group of islands southeast of the mainland).
Mykonos is characterised by its white houses and signature windmills. It manages to combine down-to-earth charm with luxury and glamour and, in the 1960s, was the island favoured by Jackie Kennedy and her Greek billionaire husband Aristotle Onassis. Today, it still draws international celebrities and jet-setters who are lured by its charms. Many wealthy Greeks own homes on Mykonos and vacation here in the summer.
The island is also known for its liveliness and exuberance. Both day and night, life on Mykonos is fun and energetic, with ample live music, clubbing and groups of beautiful people enjoying the good life. It is known as the Greek ‘party island’, and never really sleeps. Think massive beach and dance clubs, thumping beats and some of the world’s best DJs.
