In a small series of islands
in the Aegean Sea lies the tiny gem of Mykonos Island - a
dreamy destination for aspiring Greek gods and goddesses.
Mykonos is a wonderful kaleidoscope
of cosmopolitan shops, rocking bars, quaint windmills, homey
taverns and hidden churches all set against a brilliant blue
backdrop. And it's not just the water that sparkles in the
sun on Mykonos, but also the white marble streets and buildings
that characterize the island's architecture. The
beaches on the south shore of the island are the most
popular with fine sand and water that is perfect for swimming.
Ornos and Psarou beaches are the favorite among families,
but Psarou is also ideal for water sports of all kinds, including
windsurfing, water-skiing and diving. Paradise and Super Paradise
beaches attract the young and beautiful while the quiet cove
at Agrari beach is the place to relax. Take a break
from the beach and explore the capital town of
Chora, wander the streets of Little Venice or check out one
of the island's monasteries to take in some history. At night
it becomes clear why Mykonos is touted as one of the most
hedonistic islands around, with a wild night life fit for
Dionysus. The party starts with a toast to the sunset in Little
Venice and continues through the night at the dance clubs
and bars tucked away in town or along Paradise Beach.
