Mykonos

Mykonos is a small luxurious island situated in the heart of Cyclades. It is very famous for the beautiful beaches and crazy parties and many celebrities choose to spend their holidays there.


Mykonos town is known as one of the most stunning places on the island. Overlooking the southwest end of the harbor, it was here that many early ship captains decided to settle down and built uniquely magnificent homes overlooking the sea. Today, many of these historic homes have been transformed into a variety of cozy restaurants, bars, shops and nightclubs, making this a bustling place at all hours of the day.


The iconic windmills or Kato Myli overlooking Little Venice (as Mykonos town is known) date back to the 16th century when islanders used wind power to grind grain. There are 16 windmills in total, and while they are no longer operational, they stand as a monument to early innovation. The views here are spectacular: From this hilltop perch, you can see Mykonos town and the harbor in the distance. While you're here, you might want to check out the nearby Mykonos Agricultural Museum, part of the Mykonos Folk Museum.


If you ask them, Mykonians will tell you that their island is home to 365 churches -- one for each day of the year. However, Panagia Paraportiani is by far the most famous. Sitting in central town, this somber white-washed church dates back to the Byzantine era and features a variety of religious decorations dating back to the Middle Ages. From its main entrance, you'll have spectacular views of the Mediterranean Sea.


Many people flock to Mykonos for two reasons: beaches and parties. A trip to the southern coast and Paradise Beach -- Mykonos' original nudist beach -- will kill both birds with one stone. Soft sands, azure seas and a rowdy atmosphere have made Paradise one of the most popular places on the island. Paradise has become more developed over the past few years and now features a nearby strip of resort hotels, restaurants and beloved carousing spots. Paradise Beach sits about two miles (four kilometers) south of Mykonos town and can be reached on foot or by bus or boat.


Most agree that, if you have the time, a day trip to the nearby island of Delos is a must. This little island was once the religious and political center of the Cyclades; Greek legend has it that this was the birthplace of Apollo (the god of music and light) and Artemis (the goddess of the wilderness, animals and the hunt). Because of its mythological significance, the ancient Ionians declared Delos their religious capital while a few centuries later, the Athenians set up a treasury here.


If you're looking to have fun in the sun without having to put up with rowdy parties and nude bathers, skip Paradise in favor of Psarou Beach. Located northwest of Paradise Beach along the coast, Psarou's powdery sand, clear blue waves and more relaxing atmosphere make this beach popular among families and honeymooners. However, this stretch of coastline has begun to lure larger and larger crowds, including herds of water sports enthusiasts. This beach is known for its great windsurfing and waterskiing conditions. To lay

claim to some prime real estate, try to get here in the morning, while other sun-seekers are still sleeping off the night before.


Overlooking Delos from the town’s harbor, this small museum houses numerous artifacts discovered during the island's excavation. Displays contain vases, jewelry and pottery dating back to the 25th century B.C., as well as many relics relating to the numerous battles and raids that plagued the island.
