Since the 1950s, Mykonos has successfully built itself as Greece’s glamorous jet-set destination. Its natural beauty, cosmopolitan character and incredible nightlife options have earned it as one of the “must-see” islands in the world. It is the Greek destination where visitors love to be pampered, to party and enjoy the top-rated restaurants, shop high-end boutiques and experience some of the most luxurious accommodation in the country.
Mykonos also has its traditional side. Whitewashed windmills and small Orthodox churches dot the Cycladic island. Its main town called Chora is one of the most well-preserved traditional villages in Greece. It features stunning whitewashed cubist buildings and bougainvillea lined narrow pathways that are a pleasure to explore or “get lost” in. The nearby island of Delos is a fantastic UNESCO World Heritage Site. It’s a sprawling ruin that was once a magnificent ancient Greek city and the mythical birthplace of Apollo and Artemis
