Mykonos is an island of Greece in the Cyclades group of the Aegean Sea. It is popularly known for its Ibiza-like summer party scene. With a population of just over ten thousand people, Mykonos makes for the ideal summer destination to get away and have a good time. Iconic landmarks include a row of 16th-century windmills, which sit on a hill above Mykonos town.
Beaches such as Super Paradise and Paradise features bars and clubs that echoes thumping music, hosts world-renowned DJs and typically stays open throughout the night. The peak season mix of cruise-ship crowds, indulgent holiday makers and strutting fashionistas flood Mykonos Town, a traditional whitewashed Cycladic maze, showing off its authentic cubists charms and its stylish cafe-bar-boutique scene.
Mykonos is constantly booming with tourists, and there’s also been a corresponding increase with upgrades and renovation. Beach bars, hot new hotels and restaurants are going up, as well as the prices. If you visit during the summertime, be prepared to join jostling street crowds, tanning lounger lifestyle at crowded beaches, and non-stop parties. In the off-season, glitz and glam, celebrities, find more laid-back local life, the occasional pelican wandering the deserted streets, and beaches backed by hot clubs that have gone silent.
