Mykonos Island
Mykonos island is a cosmopolitan destination that attracts VIP guests, movie stars and jet-setters from around the world. More famous than Capri and more fashionable than Hawaii, Mykonos is both a magnet for dedicated clubbers, and an idyllic getaway for ‘hopeless’ romantics who want to live out their dreams on a truly legendary island. The island’s terraced villages with their cobbled streets, lime-washed houses and picturesque churches are among the finest examples of Cycladic architecture. Visit the town of Mykonos, drop into the Archaeological Museum and start the evening with sundowners at one of the charming cafes of Little Venice before getting pleasurably lost in the  maze of alleys lined with shops, restaurants and bars. You may also want to visit the Folklore Museum next to the famed Paraportiani church, walk up to the island’s trademark windmills or take a short trip to the quaint village of Ano Mera with its imposing monastery. Reknowned for its vibrant nightlife culture and beloved for the courteous hospitality of its people – the first place in Greece where locals systematically accommodated visitors in their homes – Mykonos is also famous for its long stretches of pristine sandy beaches, including Elia, Platis Gialos, Agrari, Ftelia, Paradise, Super Paradise and Psarou.
