In a small series of islands in the Aegean Sea lies the tiny gem of Mykonos Island - a dreamy destination for aspiring Greek gods and goddesses. Mykonos is a wonderful kaleidoscope of cosmopolitan shops, rocking bars, quaint windmills, homey taverns and hidden churches all set against a brilliant blue backdrop. And it's not just the water that sparkles in the sun on Mykonos, but also the white marble streets and buildings that characterize the island's architecture. The beaches on the south shore of the island are the most popular with fine sand and water that is perfect for swimming. Ornos and Psarou beaches are the favorite among families, but Psarou is also ideal for water sports of all kinds, including windsurfing, water-skiing and diving. Paradise and Super Paradise beaches attract the young and beautiful while the quiet cove at Agrari beach is the place to relax. Take a break from the beach and explore the capital town of Chora, wander the streets of Little Venice or check out one of the island's monasteries to take in some history. At night it becomes clear why Mykonos is touted as one of the most hedonistic islands around, with a wild night life fit for Dionysus. The party starts with a toast to the sunset in Little Venice and continues through the night at the dance clubs and bars tucked away in town or along Paradise Beach.
