The undeniable star of tourism in Greece, Mykonos is the most popular but also the most festive of the Greek islands. The island receives millions of tourists every year. In August, the number of tourists reaches the highest levels.
Its capital, Chora, is one of the most photogenic villages of the Cyclades and is among the most beautiful beaches in Greece.
Often compared to Saint Tropez or Ibiza for its jet set side, Mykonos offers its visitors a crazy and exuberant nightlife. In summary, Mykonos is really good at this if you can come off-season, come to the party and have a serious budget planned.

The Best of Mykonos
Very poor and living mostly on fishing and boat building until the 1950s, Mykonos had a different reputation.
It owes its reputation to Aristotle Onassis, who at the time came ashore and invited everything the world could count, from movie stars and politicians to memorable parties and jet-sets.
Over the decades, the island has subsequently developed heavily around tourism, bolstered by fast access from Athens and direct air links with Europe. Today it has the islands with the highest visitor density in Greece.
It has long been considered the main destination of the Mediterranean. Of all the places, in terms of social status or sexual preference, Mykonos is one of the most cosmopolitan and open islands in Greece.
To understand the fascination that Mykonos village exerts on visitors, you have to get lost in a maze of winding streets and alleys that were built in the 18th and 19th century to lose the pirates who threatened the island.
The village has lost nothing of its legendary charm. Take advantage of these walks to visit several interesting places in the village.
The Archaeological Museum of Mykonos was built in 1901 to exhibit pieces from the islet of Rineia, which served as a necropolis while it was forbidden to die and be buried on the island of Delos.
The maritime museum, built inside a magnificent Cycladic-style bourgeois house, is also worth seeing. It presents the island's rich maritime tradition through boat models, engravings or period instruments dating from the pre-Minoan period to the present day.
The original mechanism of the Armenisti Lighthouse is on display in the beautiful garden of the museum.
Finally, if you have to choose, the Folklore Museum in the Kastro district presents traditional musical instruments alongside old furniture, clothing, gadgets and utensils.
The church of Panagia Paraportiani, located at the entrance of the Kastro district, is one of the most photographed churches in Greece.
The icon of the island is a group of 4 churches, perhaps more interesting than the famous Pelican of Mykonos. It is surrounded by Agios Efstathios, Agia Anastasia, Agios Anargiros and Agios Sozon in the centre, and the Church of the Virgin Mary dominates the hill.
Continuing after the church, you arrive at the small Venetian quarter, named for the long-whitewashed Venetian houses with colorful windows stretching out to the water's edge.
It is the liveliest district of Chora with its many art galleries, trendy bars, shops and clubs and a meeting place where one can come in the evening and enjoy one of the most romantic sunsets on the island.
We will talk about Agios Stefanos and Agios Ioannis 3 km north on the piece of land facing Delos, which you can reach by boat from Kariye. You will need to reach the south coast of the island for more beaches.
The neighboring island of Delos is 15 minutes away and is uninhabited. However, it is one of the most important archaeological sites in Greece. It is the only UNESCO World Heritage Site in the Cyclades.
Said to be the birthplace of Apollo, this small island was a port and an important trade centre. The ruins of the city are magnificent. It is an unforgettable experience that you must have at least once in your life.
South Beach of Mykonos
The best known and most beautiful beaches are located in the south of Mykonos. Adjacent to the seaside resort of Platis Gialos, Psarou is considered one of the most stylish.
The best-known beach is probably Paradise Beach. It is also one of the most popular.
A little further east and also accessible by boat, Super Paradise is surrounded by beach clubs. It is a large, wide sandy beach that turns into a large open-air club from six in the evening.
Continue east for Agrari beach, probably one of the quietest places in the area.
Finally, remember that if you like the stillness more, you will always find a small, quiet cove by walking a little.
