Our first visit to Mykonos!

Mykonos is an island that we never visited during the previous years despite our frequent presence in the Cyclades islands. Therefore, our first visit together to the island was not a surprise taking into consideration the high number of visitors.

The strong wind did not really allow us to visit all the places we were aiming for, so we had to focus on the yacht marina of the island right next to the main port. The findings were once again alarming since a large amount of single use containers was collected from the seabed.

However, it was encouraging to receive the remarkable help of the Municipal Port Fund as well as to engage into discussions with the Mayor of the island who expressed his interest for establishing a marine litter collection station and joining the “Blue Municipalities” Network. For these reasons we believe that we will return to the island again.
