There is so much that makes a Greece sailing holiday special. But aside from the fact that you get to see the best that the islands have to offer as part of the pre-planned itinerary, there is also the benefit of optional trips. Choosing to take advantage of one of these means even more opportunities to admire everything Greece has to offer.

So if you get the chance, Mykonos is a great place in which to spend some time. The villages are near picture-perfect examples of Greek architecture, whilst the island itself carries the perfect balance of classic heritage and modern culture – ideal for a day or a night on land.


Water-sports enthusiasts will be well served by the activities on offer on the coastline, whilst those who prefer to take a back seat will have the perfect view from one of the many cafes and bars which line the beaches and coves. And if history is on the agenda, then a visit to the old town is a must. With its perfectly preserved examples of Greek architecture, a visit here will leave you feeling as if you have stepped into a postcard come to life.


But if your days don’t really start until the sun begins to go down, Mykonos still has something more to offer. Nightlife on the island is world-renowned, with parties going on until the sun is ready to rise the next day – a great example of why the Greek islands remain such a popular tourist destination.
