Mykonos is another Greek Island part of the Cyclades Island group in the Aegean Sea, with breathtaking beaches and a lovely town.
Mykonos is very charming and sophisticated and one of most famous hotspot for parties in Europe (the biggest in Greece). Because of that, the island is full of young people partying all day long, sun seekers and couples enjoying Mykonos’s beautiful scenery and romanticism.
The best way to explore the island is renting a scooter because the public transportation is not that good.
I visited the island in August of 2014 coming by ferryboat from Santorini. The island is really picturesque and undoubtedly one of the greatest places to enjoy the European summer.
Some of the things to do in Mykonos are:
Visit Little Venice Quarter
One of the oldest parts of Mykonos boasting hotels, restaurants, old mansions with colorful balconies and one of the best spot to watch the sunset.
Wander around Mykonos Town (Chora)
The most charming and picturesque part of Mykonos. Its tiny cobblestone streets, white-washed houses full of bougainvillea will enchant you.
Chora is actually one of the best places to stay in Mykonos and it’s so easy to get around the island from there.
