Yacht Charter in Mykonos
Mykonos is a Greek island, part of the Cyclades, lying between Tinos, Syros, Paros and Naxos. There are 10,134 inhabitants most of whom live in the largest town, Mykonos, which lies on the west coast. The town is also known as Chora.
Mykonos’ nickname is The island of the winds Tourism is a major industry. Widely known for it’s nightlife, Mykonos is called “Ibiza of Greece” for its summer club scene which attracts very large numbers of tourists every year. Ideal island for yacht charter.
Mykonos Marina (known locally as the New Port) is a partly finished marina located around two kilometres north of the old harbour and town of Mykonos. It provides good shelter from the prevailing winds and is quiet, being some distance from the main town. Until recently something of a ‘free for all’, attempts have been made to improve the facilities for yachts here and there are when last reviewed around a dozen laid moorings for small and medium sized yachts in the marina’s “yacht basin” to starboard on entry and a further 30 for larger (20-25 meters) yachts on the marina’s south west quay (on the inside of the section where the cruise liners berth). Water and electricity (prepaid) are currently available only at the berths on the SW quay.
There are no dangers in the approach. Usually there will be one or more large cruise ships moored on the outside of the marina breakwater to help identify it. The marina is entered from SE. Depths in the entrance are 5.0 – 6.0 metres.
Currently water and electricity (prepaid system) only available on the SW quay. Fuel by mini tanker only. No other facilities. Well stocked Minimart nearby 0700 – 23:00.
