The island of Mykonos is one of the most famous greek islands. Covered in pretty windmills, every hilltop has a view more brethtaking than the last.
Just two miles from Delos, Mykonos is an island where every view seems better than the last and the whole island exudes a distinctly upmarket cosmopolitan feel.
However, there is still a strong greek influence (Mykonos is thankfully no faliraki) and the locals and visitors get on well. The most touristy part of Mykonos is definitely Paradise beach, located between Paranga Beach and Super Paradise Beach. You can get there via a small footpath from Platis Yialos.
Beaches on Mykonos
Lots of water sports and a diving centre can be found on Paradise Beach, Mykonos. Paradise beach itself is shallow with near perfect sand.
Paradise attracts a young easy going crowd, many of whom stay cheaply at the camping accomodation located directly behind the beach. At night, the whole beach turns into a laid back nightclub with music and dancing until sunrise.
Apart from Paradise beach, you will find that hotels on Mykonos are generally smarter and a little more expensive than the budget traveller may be used to, but there are bargains to be had too. So, even if you are on a budget, dont dismiss Mykonos holidays before checking for bargains.
The food on the island is some of the best that greece has to offer. many of the best athenian chefs end up on Mykonos for a few years at some point duuring their careers.
Reviews of Mykonos
The south of Mykonos has some of Europe’s best gay beaches.
Luxury Hotels on Mykonos
Kivotos Club, Myconian Ambassador, Myconos Grand Resort, Royal Myconian and Saint John’s Hotel are all great luxury hotels on the island. I don’t think anyone will be dissapointed choosing any one of these.
Don’t miss out on a trip to the sacred isle of Delos. Definitely worth a visit.
