It is the cosmopolitan centre of the Cyclades complex. Its reputation has spread during the last years owed to its unparalleled landscape, its archaelogical sites, its cosmopolite environment and its glorious beaches. White-washed, cube-shaped houses are scattered all over the island, narrow down streets in the city, chapels & picturesque tavernas hide amongst art galleries & stores selling jewellery, souvenirs etc.
Styles that sweep across the global scene are born in the vivid nightlife of this contemporary resort. An island of luring and tempestuous reputation like Mykonos, with high tourism & a rather superficial lifestyle, inevitably has each fans and critics.But even the most unsuspicious visitor immediately understands that Mykonos is not just a crazy “bon-viveur”, but likewise an attractive, picturesque island with white Chora apart the crystal-clear blue waters of the Aegean.
Because it is so famous, Mykonos gets really overcrowded in the period of high season but for those who enjoy the crowd, great fun & all night long entertainment, Mykonos is the idealistic place for vacations.
The beach of Platis Yialos is first of the most mainstream beaches of the island, it is full organized, offering sun beds, umbrellas, & water sports installations. Its golden sand and marvellous turquoise crystalline waters attract thousands of people in the period of summertime time. It is approachable by local bus departure each half an hour from Chora. From Platis Yialos beach, regular taxi-boats go to the beaches of the southern coast which are Paranga , Agrari , Elia , Paradise & Super Paradise.
Agrari and Elia are placed one next to each other, forming a huge sandy beach, 10 kilometres from Chora. Elia is the longer sandy beach of Mykonos, fully organized, offering a wide selection of taverns & bars as well as water sports installations. Agrari Beach is less popular than its neighbour & much calmer. They each may likewise be reached out by local bus.
Paradise is one of the most famed beaches of Mykonos, pulling in mostly a young crowd by its twenty-four hours music and its day and night beach parties. Paradise beach is set between Paranga Beach & Super Paradise Beach & is approachable by a pathway from Platis Yialos, by bus or by taxi-boat.
The notable Cavo Paradiso which is a big building complex working like a night club, holding a pool, a restaurant and a beach bar, is placed on a hill, higher up the beach. By night, Paradise Beach transforms into a very big club with music & people dancing on the sand and the rocks till dawn.
In Mykonos the party begins with a toast to the sunset in Little Venice & continues through the night at the dance clubs and bars tucked away in city or even by Paradise Beach. Worth a visit? It sure does!
