The small town of Tourlos
Tourlos is a small town on the island of Mykonos, just a half hour walk from the capital of Mykonos Town. Tourlos features a busy port and a good number of cruise ships choose to dock here, rather than the small crowded harbour at Mykonos Town.
Holidays to Tourlos tend to be cheaper than visits to the larger resorts on the island, and the sleepy pace of life here will appeal to anyone in search of some peace and quiet – this is particularly likely to appeal to couples and families.
Tourlos holidays – plenty for you to see and do
Tourlos enjoys a fantastic beach, which is well known for being highly organised – it needs to be as well, as this area can become particularly busy during the peak summer months. Here you’ll find ample space for sunbathing, and the Aegean waters are both warm and clear, making this a great spot to go for a swim. Families with young children will also be delighted with the way the sea shelves slowly, making this a safe place for kids to play in the water.
You won’t be short of beaches in this area, with plenty more to choose from, besides just the beach at Tourlos itself. For example, the nearby Agios Stefanos is a great place for swimming, and tends to be quieter than Tourlos during the summer. There is also a wide range of water sports on offer over at Agios Stefanos, with some exciting activities ranging from scuba diving to windsurfing.
If you’re looking for a little culture during your holiday in Tourlos, then check out the striking Agios Georgios Church. This Orthodox Church is an attractive and elegant building, featuring a gleaming red dome. There is a good car rental facility in Tourlos, which will make it easy to head out on excursions around the rest of the island.
One great option for a day out during your holiday to Tourlos, would be to head to the capital of Mykonos Town. Just 2km to the south of there is the centre of Mykonos Town and this exciting destination boasts a great combination of ancient history, extensive shopping facilities, nightclubs and other resort attractions.
