Mykonos island. The must-see holiday station
Mykonos’ island, the island of the Winds, according to Greek mythology, is the most coveted Cycladic gem. However being one of the most luxurious Greek islands, it still combines both tradition and glamour, letting the Aegean sun radiate its sparkle to the whole area. Golden beaches, clear waters and party people create an overall pole of attraction and offer life-memorable experiences, that make Mykonos a must-see holiday station.
We start off by Kalo Livadi, the reference point for exploring the island’s beaches. One of Mykonos’ biggest resorts, Kalo Livadi is ideal for various preferences. The huge southeast coast lets families experience a relaxing yet enjoyable getaway, with the place being also suitable for safe swimming and play in the clean and shallow waters. Of course, fine dining and partying are a must on the list.
Kalafatis, only 2 km east Kalo Livadi, can be ideal for the risk-takers keen on trying water sports, whereas Agia-Anna, a nearby small but picturesque beach, is a more relaxing resort.
Elia and Agrari can be found at the west side of Kalo Livadi. While consisting of the biggest south coastal chain of Mykonos, visitors can discover each beach by following a different path. Elia is the place for comfortable sunbeds, exquisite restaurants and fun water sports, but Agrari lets visitors relax peacefully viewing an astonishing landscape.
Lia is another charming beach, ready to be explored by venturing into its deep blue waters. The smooth sand, the diving center and the beautiful sea creatures await to be discovered.
We have now reached Mykonos’ most well-known, party-like and fun-targeted Paradise and Super Paradise, the two beaches capturing exactly what Mykonos is all about. Don’t hesitate to join the famous big parties or relax on the beach, enjoying, once again, the local restaurants and outnumbered beach activities.
Paraga beach follows Paradise’s lively energy and hosts Mykonos’ most popular and fine restaurants. Parties are also thrown in Paraga bay and the beach is highly preferred due to its wind-protected location.
Moving on to the north and more wild side of the island, Panormos, Ftelia and Agios Sostis express Mykonos’ natural rocky beauty. The beaches are ideal for setting personal equipment and for enjoying a more traditional swim in the sea. Ftelia and Agios Sostis are both parasol-free beaches.
Psarou and Platis Gialos are neighbor coasts, popular as well for their restaurants and fun. Platis Gialos is a beautiful natural resort with various activities, while Psarou is the hotspot of celebrity gatherings.
Last but not least, Ornos completes Mykonos’ blissful beach life in a wind-protected area. Restaurants, nicely arrayed beach equipment and comfortable sunbeds are suitable for a relaxing getaway.
Reaching down upon Mykonos’ center, Chora, it is obvious that luxury, glamour and fun don’t ever leave the island. While roaming through the Cycladic alleys and crossing the whitewashed houses, one can sense the welcoming yet amusing ambiance of Mykonos’ spirit. Restaurants, bars and clubs can be seen everywhere, while passing through Matogianni street, Mykonos’ biggest commercial market for souvenirs, beach accessories and designer brands. Needless to mention Chora’s famous “Little Venice”, a spot to cherish one of Aegean’s most charming sunsets and the overwhelming 16th century Windmills, an astonishing trademark of the Mykonian tradition.
As for that, Mykonos Island is the ultimate spot for an overall fulfilling vacation. Its unique and welcoming Cycladic beauty offers an alternative exotism, yet it expresses the Greek culture at its best. Feel free to breathe the refreshing Greek summer air, sense the delightful sun, taste the good food and experience the never-ending spree.
