Is it its majestic windmills standing guard on the hills overlooking the sea? Is it its sun-drenched beaches or the waters of the Mediterranean twinkling like infinite precious jewels? Could it be that Apollo, born in the neighboring, sacred island of Delos wanders there, reflecting his eternal beauty? Or perhaps its narrow, winding maze of whitewashed paths leading one to endless adventure and fascination?
Mykonos is famed as a cosmopolitan destination amongst the Greek islands and widely recognised as one of the great travel meccas. It is one of the most touristed islands in the Aegean.
Not surprisingly, Mykonos ranks among the world’s best known and most desirable destinations, attracting holiday makers from every corner of the planet.
Uniquely combining superb, sandy shores with a crystal clear sea and the stunning town "Chora", Mykonos is the supreme and inimitable expression of the Cycladic architecture, radiant whites and radiant blues. To crown it all, the sacred island of Delos standing beside it displays a wealth of sights, and experiences from the civilization of Ancient Greece.
Mykonos is a magical atmosphere rivaling any found on earth. In fact, the island has been called the Venice of Greece. In part, this is because of its Alefkandra quarters, a row of old houses with balconies over-hanging the Aegean.
