Mykonos is a wonderful Cycladic island, worth visiting at any time of the year. However, it is a must to enjoy the days of its summer glory, when it literally becomes an international village, when its community of believers make it a sight worth seeing, when one can experience the unique feeling that everything and everyone is in Mykonos.

According to mythology, Mykonos was formed from the petrified bodies of giants killed by Hercules. And did you know that the island took its name from the grandson of Apollo, “Mykonos”?

Set out on a journey to discover a fascinating world where glamour meets simplicity. On Mykonos celebrities, college students and families mingle together to celebrate the Greek summer. However, despite its cosmopolitan character, Mykonos remains a beautiful and picturesque island, whose all white Chora lies next to the sea, with golden beaches, friendly and smiling people and a continuous link with history lasting for centuries. If you think you've seen someone that looks famous, then you're probably right. In Mykonos you'll sit right next to famous actors, singers, stars, TV personalities, top models.

In Mykonos there are beaches that cater for all tastes: family beaches such as Lia, trendy beaches like Psarou and quiet beaches such as Agios Sostis.

In contrast to other Cycladic capitals, the capital town (Chora) of the island is not built in the shape of an amphitheater but instead spreads out over a wide area. It is one of the best examples of Cycladic architecture and a spellbinding attraction for visitors. Stroll around its narrow marble streets and admire whitewashed houses with colorful doors and window frames, bougainvillea trees in purple bloom and hidden churches.
