Welcome to Mykonos
Representing the archetypal heavenly images of island Greece, Mykonos is all about idyllic fishing villages, crystal-blue seas and whitewashed buildings that look even more dazzling set against the backdrop of a brilliant and cloudless blue sky. Adding to this perfection are red-roofed churches, windmills, and a way of life that, in many areas, has changed little over the years. Mykonos, however, has always moved with the times, and whilst it holds its own as a traditional Greek island, it is also a hip and happening resort destination, with a cosmopolitan lifestyle and sophisticated nightlife.
Nothing available yet. Check back soon.
Contrasting with this modernity, the ancient site of Delos is well worth visiting, as are the many fascinating museums that capture the essence of Cycladic life over thousands of years. Mykonos Town, the capital of the island, should also be on your must-see list, along with the island's stunning beaches, such as family-friendly Ornos and Agios Stefanos.
