It’s been a hard year for everyone. Filled with the anxiety of not knowing what is coming next, seemingly with little light at the end of the tunnel. It doesn’t have to be that way though. With the end in sight, it’s time to start planning your next vacation. When many people think of their dream holiday destination, they think of pristine and clear waters, warm weather, delicious food, and friendly people. Mykonos has all of these, so why not plan your next vacation there?
Let’s look at some of the reasons to visit Mykonos.
Choose From Splendid Isolation or Partying
Mykonos offers the ability to spend quiet time with your family or to bump shoulders with celebrities and party the night away. The iconic Cycladic landscape of Mykonos – a slab of rock with jutting rocks in the middle of the Aegean – offers sandy beaches, clear blue waters and something for everyone.
Choose from an array of luxury villas in Mykonos, either in the middle of the action close to the world-class restaurants, boutiques, and nightlife or choose something a bit more remot, and further away from it all.
Visit Delos and Rhenia
Delos used to be a spiritual hub during the heyday of ancient Greece. Today it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The now deserted island was believed to be the birthplace of the god Apollo and his sister Artemis. Charter your own private yacht to the island and visit Rhenia to soak up the sun, sand, and amazing local cuisine.
This is undoubtedly Mykonos’s most photographed site. It is a collection of five small churches that have been bundled together. Their whitewashed walls provided an unforgettable contrast to the dazzling azure of the Aegean Sea that’s never too far out of sight on the island.
Every Beach Has Crystal Clear Waters
No matter what beach you choose to spend the day on, you’ll find that they all have crystal clear waters and golden sands. So wherever you choose will give you the stunning views you imagine when you think of Greece. Visiting in the shoulder season of April or October means fewer people, cheaper prices, and less crowded beaches.
The Iconic Windmills of Little Venice
Having a drink at a seaside restaurant while the sun sets in the Old Town is one of the top activities to do in Mykonos. A series of small traditional windmills are another of the top photographed things in Mykonos and can be reached by a small footpath a short distance from Little Venice.
The Armenistis Lighthouse is a popular spot for viewing the sunset on the northwest side of the island. Consequently, it can get quite crowded in the busy season, so be sure to consider this when planning your itinerary.
To Sum Up
Mykonos has held a proud place as a top travel destination since the 1960s, and rightly so. Whether you aim to rub shoulders with the rich and famous or just relax with your family and friends on a beautiful Greek Island, you really can’t go wrong. All the beaches offer clear waters and a bright blue sea that are sure to keep you wanting more.
The allure of an Ancient culture is never too far away on Mykonos, so it doesn’t all have to be beaches, sunsets, and food all the time either. Plan your next trip to Mykonos for an experience that has it all.
