The ship started to sail towards Mykonos, a distance of 96 nautical miles away and arrived about 6:00 pm. Although it was already late, everyone in the group disembarked and took a stroll to watch the sunset and visited Little Venice in Chora, a beautiful old island town of Mykonos.

Mykonos Island, Greece
Mykonos lies between Tinos, Syros, Paros and Naxos nicknamed as The Island of the winds. Its town is known as Chora. Mykonos, part of the Cyclades island group in the Aegean Sea, is one of the most popular and glamorous Greek isles, known for its nonstop party atmosphere. Beaches such as Paradise and Super Paradise welcome a diverse crowd, with music blaring. Massive dance clubs attract world-renowned DJs and typically stay open well past dawn.
Tourism is a major industry. Mykonos is well known for its vibrant nightlife and for being a gay-friendly destination with many establishments catering for the community.
