Mykonos is world-famous. It is no coincidence that the most cosmopolitan of all Greek islands attract so many visitors from all over the world, including large number of artists, politicians and intellectuals.
Here, the steep mountains to be encountered in most of the Cyclades give way to low, rocky hills which combine with superb beaches to make up the landscape of the island. Mykonos is the only island that combines the cosmopolitan and sophisticated lifestyle with the simple yet charming life of the Cycladic islands. Take a stroll through the maze of narrow streets,marvel at the hundreds of tiny chapels and the whitewashed houses with their flower-filled balconies. Take a walk up to the famous windmills or just relax on the waterfront, enjoy the sunset, accompanied by a refreshing drink or traditional ouzo.
The Archeological Museum contains items from tombs on the nearby island of Rhenia, sculptures, vases and figurines. Mykonos is also the home of the Nautical Museum of the Aegean, which has interst all of itw own.
In that island, lovers of sea will find outstanding golden beaches such as Agios Stefanos, Psarou, Kalafatis, Platis Gialos, Ornos, Elia & Panormos. Mykonos is a bysy island with all the amenities of a modern resort and with plenty to do, day or night, for those who want to have a lively time. Yet visitors fond of more peaceful holidays will still find quiet corners in which to relax.
