A vibrant, luxurious and charming island in the Cyclades in the Aegean Sea. A place loved by celebrities and party goers, beaches admired by tourists, Greece in its most enchanting form! Cosmopolitan, trendy, attractive - this is Mykonos.
An island that never sleeps. Extremely picturesque by day and a true Party Island by night. Mykonos has many ways to charm both long before sunset and after darkness falls. This little, bustling island called "Greek Ibiza” is a dream come true for those who want to spend their holidays on endless fun. "Morning coffee" at noon is nothing unusual here. Stylish clubs, exclusive bars, numerous restaurants and taverns attract crowds of party goers from all over the world.
The beaches of Mykonos are great for relaxing, but not all day long. Colourful drinks, DJs, dancing people and celebrities who love Mykonos appear on the beautiful beaches early in the afternoon. Here DJs play even in the supermarket! Mykonos is therefore a party at every turn. The island that is noisy at night calms down in the morning. That is when the beaches are less crowded and the golden sands, the calm Aegean Sea and the charming white cottages in the background create a lovely setting for blissful relaxation – especially after a night of madness. Ornos, Platis Gialos, Agios Sostis, Korfos, Elia Beach, Psarou Beach or the most popular Paradise and Super Paradise, are just a few of the beaches of Mykonos – they are some of the most beautiful beaches in Greece. This is where young people, surfers, nudists, tourists looking for entertainment and luxury will find their place. Because of the friendly attitude of hoteliers, beaches and clubs with diversified clientele, Mykonos is also very popular in LGBT environments.
Fame, luxury and celebrity frenzy. Where there are celebrities, there are also paparazzi, who have a lot of work to do here, considering the number of millionaires, models, music, film and sport stars coming here. It is said that this celebrity craze began with a visit by Jackie Kennedy, who came here in the 1960s. The marinas are full of luxurious yachts and the streets of the shops of prestigious brands and taverns doing their best to attract guests.
What's worth visiting here? Among the symbols of Mykonos one should mention not only celebrities, party night life or beautiful beaches, but also people-friendly pelicans and windmills. Mykonos is called the "island of the winds" because of the wind, which significantly relieves the temperature here. The 16th century windmills that stand majestically on the seashore make an incredible impression – an obligatory location for commemorative photos. Opposite the windmills is the so-called Little Venice with its charming, colourful buildings - one of the most beautiful places on Mykonos. Also worth visiting is the Panagia Paraportiani Church, the 13th century town hall and the oldest folklore museum in Greece.
A fairytale island. In ancient times, Mykonos was an agricultural island, but for decades the main role here has been played by the reputation of the island, which is particularly popular with celebrities. But this is not the most important thing, as even without these stars Mykonos would still have its unforgettable charm. A fairytale landscape with whitewashed limestone houses, winding narrow streets, sandy beaches and stunning azure water are also what makes this fantastic island so famous. Don't pretend that you don't know anything about it - you'll learn everything here... during holidays with ITAKA.
