Welcome to the Cyclades. Welcome to Mykonos.
Known worldwide, the island is located in the centre of the Cyclades in the Aegean. According to mythology, the island was formed from the petrified bodies of giants killed by Hercules.
Mykonos has been inhabited for over 3,000 years. Greek mythology has it to be the site of a battle between Zeus and the Titans. Through the years, the long history, its unique location, its beautiful architecture and its breath-taking beaches made the island a luxury real estate place.
Soon Mykonos became an attraction point for celebrities around the world. The international jet setters chose the island for their holidays and so Mykonos became a really well known cosmopolitan destination.
Mykonos still keeps the typical Cycladic ambience, as all the other islands in the region, featuring cube like white houses with blue and red doors and windows, the narrow cobbled roads and the famous windmills.
Travelers wishing to get the full Mykonos experience should sample the two elements the island is most famous for: beaches and nightlife.
Be prepared to spend as Mykonos has to offer exceptional services and products which are sold at really high prices.
If you are planning your vacations there don’t miss the sunset at Scorpios, an afternoon coffee at Little Venice, a cocktail at Scarpa bar, the never ending parties at Cavo Paradiso, the exceptional luxury experience at Nammos and of course an after swimming dinner at Alemagoo (Ftelia Beach).
An article posted on www.tripadvisor.com is wondering about Mykonos “Is it really worth it?”
“To be fair, at Mykonos prices and what it offers are dear; a family will probably be much better off picking a different Greek island. For those desperate to see it, Mykonos may be part of the bigger tour, and 3 days will be more than enough to enjoy everything Mykonos has to offer. For those whose idea of vacation is to sleep during the day and party all night while not caring much about the budget - Mykonos is definitely a place to be”.
