Visitors flock to the Island of Mykonos for a multitude of reasons. Some visit to experience what they’ve imagined as the epitome of Greek style with its white-washed buildings with blue accents. Others visit for the beaches since there is a beach for every type of beach-goer on the island. Still others visit for the endless shopping opportunities. All of those visitors will likely agree, though, that one of the main reasons they all visit is for the food. It’s with good reason that your inner foodie will love Mykonos, let’s explore some of those reasons.

Five reasons to visit Mykonos

Visit Mykonos

Mykonos is one of the most enchanting islands of Cyclades in Greece. Every year, around 750,000 of explorers travel to Mykonos to experience the delightful atmosphere it offers. Mykonos is a fine island filled with impressive beaches, luxurious restaurants, family-run taverns, romantic sights, elegant summer villa, and the very warm people who know how to welcome visitors. A place to fit all tastes. From backpackers, families, to celebrities and VIP’s, Mykonos is to be every summer. We gathered the top five reasons why you should visit Mykonos, this year and every year:

1. Beaches

Mykonos is world famous for its beautiful golden sandy beaches and transparent waters. There is a beach for every taste and mood. Nudists, round-the-clock party people, families and those seeking a break from the madness of Mykonos will all be able to find a beach that fits their taste.
The beaches on the south shore of the island have the best sand, view and are protected from the Meltemi, the local Cycladic wind. Keep in mind that most people begin to arrive in the early afternoon, and you can avoid the worst of the crowds by going in the morning. The north coast beaches are less developed but just as beautiful. They are less organized and crowded and most suitable for those in search of a bit of calm. Do you want to enjoy as many Mykonos beaches as possible, within your stay? You can rent a yacht in Mykonos, and go around the island to see famous spots and also discover new, or rent a luxury car to go around the island!

2. The Nightlife

The fame of the nightlife in Mykonos is not accidental. Here are located all the best bars and nightclubs if you want to spend your vacations in Greece, including open-air partying, cocktail bars and after-hours clubs. This is the place where you can party with the jet-setters since the place is often compared to Ibiza. Mykonos provides it all: From classy and sophisticated Caprice to all-day beach party mayhem in Super Paradise, you can party any time of the day (or all day)!

3. The Gastronomy

The gastronomy of the island is as varied as to that one would expect to find in a large European city. Gourmet restaurants with Mediterranean cuisine, Greek tavernas, ethnic corners, Italian trattorias etc coexist and cover a wide spectrum of tasteful options. Fresh fish is a must try too. The list of cuisines is a really endless! Thai, Japanese, Lebanese, French and a plethora more will cover your expectations in every respect.

4. Shopping

Shop until you drop.

The beautiful island of Mykonos is not only known for its enchanting beaches. It is a shopping mecca for shopaholics too! There are 177 fashion stores, 91 jewelry stores, 10 beauty stores, 38 Home Deco stores, 38 souvenir stores, 48 supermarkets, 8 liquor stores, 11 Local and organic stores, and 4 bookstores scattered around the island. Meaning, in every street and corner of Mykonos you will see a busy small shop that is entertaining its customers.

5. Delos

Another reason for visiting Mykonos is that it is the best place to start a tour of the impressive archeological site on the nearby island of Delos, Greece. Delos, a small, rocky island, was one of the most sacred places in Greek mythology due to its role as the birthplace of the twins Apollo and Artemis, two of the most important gods of the early Greeks.

The island’s small size does not prepare you for the incredible extent of ruins and ongoing excavations that can be found on Delos. We highly recommend a visit, as Delos is, perhaps, the most outstanding archaeological site in Greece, outside of the Acropolis and other ancient sights in Athens.

Destination Mykonos 2017

Mykonos is today a cosmopolitan destination that attracts VIP guests, movie stars and jet-setters from around the world.

Mykonos Holidays are always in fashion!

The island’s terraced villages with their cobbled streets, lime-washed houses, and picturesque churches are among the finest examples of Cycladic architecture. Visit the town of Mykonos, drop into the Archaeological Museum and start the evening with sundowners at one of the charming cafes of Little Venice before getting pleasurably lost in the maze of alleys lined with shops, restaurants, and bars. You may also want to visit the Folklore Museum next to the famed Paraportiani church, walk up to the island’s trademark windmills or take a short trip to the quaint village of Ano Mera with its imposing monastery.

Why Mykonos is best enjoyed with friends

Mykonos is undoubtedly a unique experience which can be enhanced by sharing it with good friends. The most famous Greek island, seducing travelers from all over the world, is accompanied by an one of a kind atmosphere combining the mellow environment of an exotic island with plenty of group activities and events.

Mykonos nightlife and collectivity

During the last decades the traditional Cycladic island is gaining more attention by international event managers, hall of fame artists and DJ’s, increasing it ‘s popularity and taking advantage of the island’s promising infrastructure.

Thus, sharing the intensity of Mykonos’ nightlife with good friends empowers the positive vibe flowing out of such events and grouping. Taking part in big events is completely different experience when it is shared with best friends increasing it’s value.

Other than that, Mykonos provides the perfect circumstances for socializing and meeting both locals and wanderers, but why not take out the most of it by making a greater gathering? On top of this, Mykonos can also fulfill the concept of traditional recreational vacation as it is suitable for sharing quality moments with close friends, making it the absolute group experience but also a personal refreshing procedure.

Accommodation feeling like home

Though the island is providing a wide variety of accommodation facilities such as luxurious hotels and holiday apartments, visiting Mykonos with friends offers the opportunity of renting a private villa just for you and your friends/family. Staying in a villa with your special company helps in focusing on the group experience as it feels like living in a home environment. On the contrary of staying in a Mykonos hotel, villas offer a more relaxed environment with access to private facilities either if it is basic (such as a fully equipped kitchen, dining room, guest rooms etc) or more luxurious (such as private infinity pools, gyms, outdoor BBQ’s, Jacuzzis etc).

Privacy and discretion is ensured for you and your company but at the same time you are able to enjoy full hosting services (e.g. change of bed sheets, hygiene services and more). Living in a private property such as luxury villas, means personal interference with your host, coming closer with the locals and contributing to the element of living as a local. Villas are the key feature for blending the outgoing social lifestyle of Mykonos with mesmerizing private moments with friends during your stay. The captivating scenery of Mykonos is always better enjoyed in a friendly context along with your vacation gaining sentimental value.

The spring has arrived and many of us have started to think our next summer destination.
