When one thinks of a Greek vacation, there is a good chance that of all the places that come to mind, Mykonos is right near the top of the list, and for darn good reason.
Mykonos is a beautiful, picturesque Greek island that is part of the Cyclades. Nicknamed The Island of the Winds, Mykonos is best known for its tourism attracting night life, and its LGBT-friendly destinations and community.
Mykonos is home to many brilliant and lovely beaches which are sparked in their popularity because the island usually has up to 300 days of sunshine a year, meaning these beaches are easily accessible any time of the year. Temperatures on the island can jump up to the 40s during the summer months, but hardly drop below the 20s.
While the beaches are one of the biggest tourist destinations, the food in Mykonos might arguably be an even bigger tourist draw. There are hundreds of culinary adventurous restaurants dotted all around the island serving everything from locally caught fish, to local specialities and brilliant combinations of local fares and international flavours.
No matter who you visit Mykonos with, be it a group of friends, your family or a loved one, there is so much to see and take in on the island (that is, if you can tear yourself away from the wonderful, sandy beaches and crystal-clear blue water.) One of the most traditional trademarks of the Mykonos landscape that you have to visit when on the island are the many windmills that dot the horizon line. The most famous of these, Kato Mili, is located in Chora and is located on a hill looking down on the sea, perfectly situated to harness the mighty northern winds. A lot of these windmills were built by the Venetians during the 16th century, and still remain in use to this day. Though, many have been refurbished as homes, or museums.
Another historically significant sight for those visiting the island is the Armenistis Lighthouse. This lighthouse is a true testament to the maritime history of the island, and is still functional. The lighthouse is in Fanari, which is about 6 km from Chora.
One of the biggest things about Greece is the countries folklore, and at the Folklore Museum (ran out of the one of the oldest homes on the entire island) you can take in the history of the Greek island through a collection of 19th-century trinkets, sculptures and other historical elements. The museum also pays tribute to the roots of the island with their models of Mykonian ships, maps and canons that were used during the Greek war of independence.
With all of the wonderful beaches, museums and countless cultural touchstones to be found on Mykonos Island, there are a few things that are nearly guaranteed: You will have a fantastic vacation, and you will have to come back because you will not be able to fit everything into one visit.
There are hundreds of hotels, ranging from economical rooms all the way to lavish and luxurious hotel rooms that insure that you are able to have the exact vacation that you are looking for.
