The Greek island of Mykonos is a charming and picturesque holiday destination, offering something different for guests of all ages and tastes. Like most European holiday destinations Mykonos offers a fine selection of beaches, which are fringed with a small selection of bars and restaurants. Those who want to relax outside a water front restaurant enjoying fresh fish caught that day will be happy whilst those who prefer an afternoon nap before a night of late night dancing will be equally impressed with the virtues of Mykonos.
The atmosphere in Mykonos is relaxed and laid back, with all the holiday amenities visitors could possibly want. The beaches are very popular on Mykonos and it’s not difficult to see why, with their plethora of sun loungers, umbrellas and the occasional bar located nearby where you’ll find a cool drink ready and waiting for you.
While visiting Mykonos you must make time to see the 16th century windmills, a nod back to the history of this splendid island which was once a great producer of wheat and bread. Now these windmills are the perfect for watching the beautiful sunsets. Another great day out can be spent shopping, whether for gifts or something a little more extravagant. If a wall in your house is looking bare then the local artist’s colony is well worth a visit, great for snapping up a keepsake of the beautiful landscapes you have enjoyed on your holiday.
Food will be an important part of your holiday in Mykonos too, as there is a great selection of traditionally prepared fresh food. Whether you prefer something savoury or sweet, you’ll find something to keep the taste buds tingling.
Mykonos is within easy reach of a number of smaller islands, including Delos and Rhenia, which are reached by boat, a perfect day out for you and your loved ones.
Mykonos also has a thriving gay scene, with a number of beaches, bars and nightclubs provided. The atmosphere is friendly and all inclusive so everyone is welcome.
Mykonos Town is a great place to stay while visiting, offering great architecture, a beautiful view of the sea and a selection of boutiques, cafes and bars for your enjoyment. The evenings too are full of things to do, with a few late night opening bars welcoming those looking for an exciting cocktail or two and a loud beat to dance to.
For a quieter holiday, with languorous evening meals, a few glasses of wine and a lazy stroll through the darkened streets taking in the fresh evening breeze, the small village Ano Mera is perfect. Offering a far more relaxed atmosphere, this village offers those looking to recharge their batteries and catch up on their reading will be happy with this charming destination.
