Sailing to SpiliaJanuary 26, 2018
One of the best ways to enjoy Mykonos is by boat. There are a handful of companies on the island that provide day excursions that can either be semi-private or private. Some hotels also offer excursions directly for their guests only. If this interests you, check out some of these websites to help you plan your day:
Since the party island tends to get pretty crazy, it can be nice to get on a boat and escape the crowds for a day. You are able to see all the beaches from the comfort of your boat and swim at any one you want. Mykonos is known as the “Isle of the Wind” so the crew will be knowledgeable to take you to areas that are protected from the wind.
Most yacht companies provide food and drinks, but it is nice to sail up to one of the many seaside restaurants to enjoy a scenic lunch. My absolute favourite restaurant is Spilia probably because it’s the most beautiful on the island. Even if you don’t sail here, definitely try to visit at least once because it simply cannot be missed. It’s nestled inside a cave so you’ll have to climb some rocks to get there, but it’s 100% worth it. If you arrive by boat, the restaurant has a private dingy to take you to and from. On weekends, there’s a DJ to accompany the amazing views right against the sea.
Whether it’s cruising to the famous ancient archaeological site on the nearby island of Delos, swimming and snorkelling in hidden coves, or just having a wild yacht party with a group of friends, the Ostrich recommends setting out to sea at least once during your visit to Mykonos!
