Holidays to Tourlos combine all the laidback charm of a seaside village with the lively bustle of a busy marina.

Seaside serenity

Sitting on the north-west coast of Mykonos – one of Greece's most postcard-famous Aegean islands – the little village of Tourlos lures visitors with its traditional charms and picturesque beauty. Despite hosting a popular marina, life here's managed to remain remarkably relaxed and authentic. Think family-run taverns, friendly bars and a chilled-out beach.

Cruise control

It's not unusual to see cruise ships and luxury liners swoop by the marina, and these daytime visitors have inspired some crowd-pleasing additions around Tourlos. There are now quite a few restaurants and bars to hop between, and boat-based adventures are well catered for.

Beach hopping

For a change of pace, the museums, watersports and cocktail bars of Mykonos Town are a 15-minute drive away. Closer to home, the golden sands and turquoise waters of Agios Stefanos Beach are just a 10-minute walk up the coast – its popular during peak season, so arrive early to snag a sunlounger.
