Mykonos, Aegean Islands, Greece
(Property location is approximate)
Additional Location Information
Pure white, Unique blue, Cosmopolitan and Serene
Welcome to Greece's most famous cosmopolitan island, a whitewashed paradise in the heart of the Cyclades. According to mythology, Mykonos was formed from the petrified bodies of giants killed by Hercules.
And did you know that the island took its name from the grandson of Apollo, âMykonosâ?
Set out on a journey to discover a fascinating world where glamour meets simplicity. On Mykonos celebrities, college students and families mingle together to celebrate the Greek summer.
Whether you are an entertainment junkie out for a real good time, or a visitor who wishes to explore the islandâs history and tradition, Mykonos will certainly meet your expectations.
In contrast to other Cycladic capitals, the capital town (HĂłra) of the island is not built in the shape of an amphitheater but instead spreads out over a wide area. It is one of the best examples of Cycladic architecture and a spellbinding attraction for visitors. Stroll around its narrow marble streets and admire whitewashed houses with colorful doors and window frames, bougainvillea trees in purple bloom and hidden churches. Pay a visit to the church of Panayia Paraportiani, the Town hall and the castle situated above the harbor.
Donât forget to visit the Archaeological, Folklore and Maritime Museums to take in a little history. Wander around the pedestrian shopping streets of the HĂłra, always colorful and busy.
The most glamorous of all is MatoyĂĄnni Street, lined with brand name stores, charming cafĂ©s and stylish restaurants.
Soak up the atmosphere along the lively waterfront and admire a fleet of fishing boats casting colorful reflections in the azure waters. This is where you will find the KazĂĄrma building, which served as accommodation for the soldiers of Manto Mavrogenous, a heroine of the Greek Revolution. The first floor served as her personal residence. While youâre out strolling, donât be surprised if you come across the official mascot of Mykonos, which is nothing other than a... pelican! PĂ©tros the Pelican was found by a fisherman after a storm in 1954, and eventually became the localsâ companion. When he died, the grief for his loss was so deep that a replacement was soon found. In honour of PĂ©tros, the locals have established a long tradition of pelicans wandering around the waterfront as an essential part of everyday life. So, whatever you do, donât forget to take a picture with the successor of the famous pelican PĂ©tros!
One of the most scenic corners of the island is AlefkĂĄntra or âLittle Veniceâ, an 18th century district, dominated by grand captainsâ mansions with colorful balconies and stylish windows. With balconies perched over the sea, pictures of the famous Italian city spring to mind. Relax at a waterfront cafĂ© and admire the view of the quaint windmills standing imposingly on the hillside above, set against a luminous blue backdrop.
The second traditional settlement of Mykonos is Ăno MerĂĄ, situated around the historic monastery of Panayia Tourliani (a 16th century church with a brilliant carved wooden iconostasis). To the north, in FteliĂĄ, lies an important Neolithic settlement, and a 14th-13th century BC Mycenaean tomb.
Using the HĂłra as your base, set out on a trip to discover the beauties of the island, in particularly its sun-kissed beaches.
Along the southern coast you will find a great selection of the most cosmopolitan ones. Here, wild parties keep the crowds rocking day and night.
Paradise and Super Paradise may already be familiar to you. Ărnos and PsaroĂș are favorite spots for families. Try a visit too to Platis YalĂłs, with a well-organized beach where you can soak up the sun lazing on a sun lounge. However, if you are looking for a serene beach to unwind with a book, pick a less organized one on the northern coast of the island, like Ayia Ănna, HoulĂĄkia, KĂĄpari, AgrĂĄri and Ayios StĂ©fanos.
Need an adrenaline rush?
The island is a paradise for water sport enthusiasts! It is only natural that the âIsland of the Windsâ should attract surfers and sailors from all over the world! There is a great choice of beaches for windsurfing; however, the most secluded ones are considered to be the best. Choose from KĂłrfos, FteliĂĄ, MeyĂĄli Ămmos and KalafĂĄtis, where surfing lessons are also available. Play tennis or mini golf at Ayios StĂ©fanos, beach volleyball at Ayia Anna or try sea parachuting or jet skiing at EliĂĄ or KalafĂĄtis. Diving fans can do a little exciting exploration of the underwater magic of Mykonos. September is thought to be the best month for diving, as the water is warm and visibility is good down at the seabed.
On the island you can find many well-organized diving centers (some of them also offer snorkeling lessons) and stores specializing in diving equipment. Explore the island on a caicque or a boat and discover secluded beaches, or take a boat tour around the nearby islets, which are also ideal fishing spots!
What about food?
Donât miss the opportunity to treat yourself to some local Aegean specialties! Pepper flavoured kopanistĂ, a soft cheese seasoned with pepper, is the islandâs gastronomic trademark. Try it as a topping on a round rusk spread with grated tomato, a favourite local mezĂ©s (appetiser). Meat eaters can sample âloĂșzesâ (cooked pork filet with spices) and tasty local sausages sprinkled with pepper, and local oregano that has been caressed by the sun and dried in the north wind. To finish off your meal you can sample two exceptionally good local pastries, âamigdalotĂĄâ (small round cakes with ground almond, rosewater and caster sugar) and honey pie.
If you find yourself in Mykonos take the opportunity to explore the tiny archaeological gem of Delos, just a short boat trip away. Delos was a sacred island in ancient times, and according to mythology was the birthplace of the twin gods Apollo and Artemis.
