Cruise to an irresistible picture-postcard destination
Mykonos looks like a scene straight from a postcard: whiter-than-white houses with brilliant blue shutters, vibrant bougainvillea, and a beautiful blue harbor drenched in warm sunlight. Iconic 16th century Venetian windmills stand in a row, their paddles spinning in the wind, and the district of Little Venice, which rises like a brightly colored wall coming out of the sea.
But beneath the idyllic scenery, Mykonos is vibrant and cosmopolitan, with a penchant for all-night parties and hedonistic good times. By day, stroll along the maze-like cobblestone streets (originally designed to thwart pirate attacks), exploring artists’ shops and enjoying a glass or two of ouzo.
As soon as the sun goes down, it’s time to let loose. Known as “the Ibiza of Greece”, Mykonos has a serious party scene that’s not for the faint of heart.
Mykonos is also a perfect jumping off point for Delos. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the uninhabited island is said to be the birthplace of the twin deities Apollo (god of the sun) and Artemis (goddess of the moon). So it’s little wonder so many flock here to worship the sun by day, and dance beneath the moon at night.Download An Explorer Guide +
