Mykonos (Island) – a 4 ½ hour ferry ride (via Fast Ferries, Golden Star Ferries, and Blue Star Ferries) (or a much shorter regional flight) from Piraeus/Athens, Mykonos is perfect for water sport enthusiasts. There is an array of beaches for windsurfing. Interestingly, the most secluded ones are considered to be the best. Choose from Kórfos, Fteliá, Meyáli Ámmos and Kalafátis– where surfing lessons are also available. Play tennis or mini golf at Ayios Stéfanos, beach volleyball at Ayia Anna or try sea parachuting or jet skiing at Eliá or Kalafátis. Diving fans can do a little exciting exploration of the underwater magic of Mykonos. September is considered the best month for diving, as the water is warm and visibility is good down at the seabed. On the island you can find many well-organized diving centers (some of them also offer snorkeling lessons) and stores specializing in diving equipment. Explore the island on a caicque or a boat and discover secluded beaches, or take a boat tour around the nearby islets, which are also ideal fishing spots!
In addition, Mykonos is also known for its nightlife. Super Paradise Beach is a popular daytime partying venue that serves as a warm-up for some before proceeding to the island’s bars & lounges during the evening (such as Tropicana Beach Club, Cavo Paradiso, Agyra Bar, and Caprice). Those familiar with Spain’s Ibiza and the partying atmosphere there will feel right at home in Mykonos.
