15 May 2021Updated: 4 hours ago | people are reading
Mykonos is also called the Ibiza of Greece. Why? The small island, only 86 km2, is part of the Cyclades to which Santorini, Naxos and Paros also belong. Mykononos attracts partygoers, especially in the summer, who come especially for the spectacular nightlife and the top DJs who play their music here. During the day you can have a great time on the beaches (yes, there are plenty of parties there) or in the many nice villages and towns. © Offered by Zoover Windmills Mykonos
Striking MykonosStriking on Mykonos is the color white that you see everywhere. Houses, buildings, churches and chapels: they are painted in a dazzling white color and often have a contrastingly colorful element. And the windmills at Mykonos town are iconic. They are on many posters or can be seen in famous films such as 'The Bourne Identity' and 'Shirley Valentine'.

Where do you sleep on Mykonos?The large number of three, four and five star hotels shows that the Greek island is a luxury holiday destination. We tip two: Hotel Elysium ***, especially popular with male and female couples and praised for the versatility of the buffet. And here you must also be for a beautiful sunset. Hotel Mykonos Bay *** does not make it easy for you: are you going to swim in the pool, are you walking to the beach or are you perhaps going downtown? Maybe you want to barbecue in the garden or read a book on the terrace. Everything is possible!
