Overview and attractions of Mykonos

Mykonos is a small Greek island part of the Cycladic archipelago, famous for its sandy beaches, amazing sea, and ancient sights and considered the center of everything bright and unconventional. It is a bohemian resort that has managed to retain its identity and Mediterranean atmosphere. The island of Mykonos is no exception among the Greek islands and also occupies an important place in Greek mythology. Mykonos is the son of Apollo and the hero of Greek myths.

The history of the island corresponds to the united history of Hellas. Excavations have uncovered the first settlements here, which date back to the third millennium B.C. The island was inhabited by settlers of the Kares tribe and later their place was taken by the Ionians. Mykonos island, like the rest of Greece, was part of the Roman and then Byzantine Empire until it came under the patronage of the Venetians in the 12th century. After 300 centuries, the island was occupied by the Ottoman Empire, which ruled here until the early 19th century.

Parking in the marina at anchor. The approach to the mooring is very narrow and you need to be as careful as possible and have time to drop the anchor. The chain is not long due to a lack of space. There's a big risk of the chain hitting the neighboring yachts.  The depth is very shallow and at the pier, it can be as shallow as 2.2 meters. You have to be extremely careful. 

The number of parking spaces is limited.  You can moor only with the permission of the harbormaster, who is always on the pier and you are always helped by the staff on the dingo.
