Tourlos is a small coastal village. White houses with freshly painted windows and flowers make a magical scenery. Located on the north side of the island, just 2,5 km from the town of Mykonos, it offers plenty of fun choices to the tourists, like taverns and bars. Tourlos is famous for its organized beach. It's a cosmopolitan sandy beach where visitors can enjoy swimming and water sports. Historically, Tourlos beach has been known as one of the quieter, less popular beaches. However, in recent years this has changed with the development of its commercial port and the public yacht harbor. The new port of Mykonos has been built in Tourlos, where, apart from ferry boats, many of the cruise ships that visit Mykonos also approach. Take a look!
