Mykonos is the party animal of the Cycladic islands, Greece’s answer to Ibiza, with bronzed bodies thronging its beaches by day and bass lines pounding through its superclubs until dawn. But there’s more to Mykonos than the dazzling sand, and insatiable revellers.
People from around the globe choose the cosmopolitan island of Mykonos, located in the middle of the Aegean Sea, to enjoy, relax and unwind. While vacations in Mykonos offers all kinds of amenities typical of a modern holiday resort and it is perfect for the jet-set crowds who want to have something to do by day and party all night, there are also calm retreats on the island where you can retire for a peaceful holiday, away from the intense nightlife.
The island is known as a glamorous destination for the world’s wealthiest and most famous. Come the booming summer months of July and August, and the island swells with the A-listers, B-listers, C-listers, and D-listers, along with hundreds of thousands of vacationers, hard-partying dance-music junkies, and cruise-shippers.
NOT so long ago Mykonos, one of the Aegean’s most popular islands, onto which jumbo cruise ships deposit as many as 15,000 day-trippers a day, was awash in just about everything but glamour. The Greek island was easily dismissed as too crowded, too expensive, too much of a cliché.
