Surrounded by the warm water of the Aegean, the Cyclades island of Mykonos is one of the most popular destinations in Europe. The glitterati are drawn in high numbers by its famous, high-octane nightlife and lifestyle-tolerant beaches where you can see and be seen. Mykonos also has less-frequented beaches, where visitors can just lounge, swim and soak in the island charm at their leisure.
Chora, also known as Mykonos Town, is the island’s capital. Stunningly picturesque, it features a maze of tiny, stone-paved streets and whitewashed lanes, cube houses and churches gathered around a harbor in the middle of a wide bay. Despite its many shops, boutiques, art galleries, cafes, bars and restaurants, Mykonos Town retains its charming ambience, with many of its buildings dating from antiquity. The labyrinthine old section of town provides a quiet contrast to its other bustling parts.
The warm days can be spent aboard a rented boat island hopping among the Cyclades Islands, or by taking a guided excursion. Sun bathing and water sports are also enjoyed by many, while other visitors find contentment in a beach cabana, witnessing the parade of yachts, cruise ships and sailboats, as well as the passing stream of humanity.
Anyone who wants a contrast with the bustling energy of Mykonos can take a day trip to sacred Delos, an uninhabited island six miles away that is a vast archeological site with superb monuments. Attractions here include the Sanctuary of Apollo, with its temples, altars, votive offerings and other buildings, the Temple of the Athenians, the Sanctuary of the Bulls, Tomb of the Two Hyperborean Maidens and many more.
Luxury Mykonos villa rentals boast breathtaking views from private verandahs and terraces, as well as elegant furnishings and the very best amenities. They provide the ideal way to spend days basking in the sun and lying on the alluring beaches, or investigating the ancient archeological ruins. With Jacuzzis, pools, manicured gardens and easy access to the ocean, the villas are a welcome refuge after a day of discovery and activity.
