The nightlife

The best asset of Mykonos is its nightlife, which makes it one of the most popular destinations for young people in Europe. The beaches in Mykonos are the place, where you can party by the sea. The beach bars on beaches, like Super Paradise Beach (Mykonos) and Paradise Beach (Mykonos), are famous all over Greece and Europe thanks to the wild beach parties and events they organise. In Mykonos Town, the bars and clubs are literally numerous. Small bars and clubs with famous DJ's in the pebbled streets of Chora, where you can drink and dance in one bar and hear the music of another, make the main town of Mykonos the ultimate destination for bar-hopping until late in the following morning.

The stunning beaches

Mykonos has truly amazing beaches. Long and sandy beaches with the crystal, turquoise waters of the Aegean Sea are waiting for you. They are organised, with beach bars for endless partying and elegant, luxury restaurants. Furthermore, in every organised beach of Mykonos, you can find water sports facilities, such as wind and kite surf, ski, canoeing and water games. But the most impressive thing in Mykonos is that there are also quiet beaches, where you can relax and listen to the waves and the wind while swimming in a beautiful landscape.

The beautiful Chora

Mykonos Town or Chora is the main town, the capital and the port of the island. It is not an exaggeration to say that Mykonos Town is the most beautiful Chora in Cyclades. Traditional architecture, Cycladic white houses with blue windows and numerous marrow streets with every shop you can imagine. Walking around Matoyianni Street (Mykonos), the pebbled streets of Chora that remind of labyrinth, is a true summer experience that you cannot find on any other island. Cafes, bar, restaurants, clubs, souvenir shops and haute-couture are around you, and it is really difficult to choose the best place, while in Little Venice (Mykonos), you can find a romantic and relaxing spot to drink a cocktail before the party gets started.

For the lovers of the Greek ancient history, the excursion to the nearby island of Delos is a must. According to mythology, Delos was the birthplace of God Apollo, and the ancient Greeks considered it a sacred place, building the Temple of Apollo and a theatre for performances.
