Mykonos also referred to as Mikonos, is one of the most famous and cosmopolitan of the Greek Isles that lies to the east of Kythnos. Renowned nightclubs and discotheques attract tourists from afar as well as local show business personalities. This island is fascinating in its diversity and yet it remains at the same time a small Greek village. The diverse topography of this small Greek island encompasses beautiful beaches, rocky hillsides with windmills perched upon them, as well as steep mountains.
Exploring ashore is a must on this island, there’s so much to see. Hora, the capital of Mykonos has a pretty harbor filled with small local fishing boats however luxury yachts are still able to moor in this great yachting destination. The capital is built on low land near to the sea in complete contrast to other Greek towns that are usually built elevated on a hillside. A popular tourist area that is often photographed by visitors is named Little Venice of Mykonos; it is located where the town meets the sea. The tiny streets in the town are lined with small white washed houses with wooden windows and doors and balconies decked out with brightly colored plants. There are numerous tavernas to visit, a good selection of gift shops and also historical medieval houses. And you are never very far away from a church on this tiny Greek island said to number 365 in total.
The next port of call is the island of Koufonisia.
