Whether it’s riding the waves on a board, riding the back of a horse or driving a go kart at an exciting outdoor track, at every corner of Mykonos there is a fascinating experience that will take your breath away.
[dropcap font=”” size=”1″ background=”” color=”” circle=”0″ transparent=”0″]W[/dropcap]ith a coastline full of spectacular golden beaches where you can guess their depths judging from the color tones of their azure waters, you can be sure that there is the ideal “sandy piece of paradise” especially for you and your company. Others are perfect for families with children, like Psarrou and Platys Gialos Bay, while many are great for couples and water-sports lovers.
As a result, Mykonos, among other, is a top destination for water sports. From the old-time classics, like water ski, snorkeling and diving to the high adrenaline testers like flyboard, wakeboard and parasailing, in almost every organized beach you will find water sports schools where you can rent the equipment and be taught by the experts. The sports’ selection offered depends mainly on the orientations of the beach. The northern side of the island is windier, which makes it ideal for activities like surfing. Ftelia beach, for instance, is considered for decades now like a perfect training spot for windsurf (and wakeboard surf, kitesurf etc.) champions. But if you long for some skiing or jet skiing, then you’d better head for southern wind-protected beaches, like Ornos.
Besides riding waves, in Mykonos you can also ride horses by the beach, which can be a unique experience and photo opportunity! Just ask for it and you can have an unforgettable privately organized horse tour in the sunset. Such private tours may also include hiking, wine tasting, yachting; even helicopter rides for island hopping around the archipelagos.
But if you ask the opinion of a real Mykonos connoisseur, they will tell you that apart from the endless fun opportunities available in this amazing place on earth, there is one outdoor activity that will remained locked in your heart for ever: watching a movie under the starry night sky, in a beautifully scented garden, sipping a spectacular cocktail with snacks in a Greek-only traditional open-air cinema!
