Because it is so famous, Mykonos gets really overcrowded during peak season but for those who don’t mind or enjoy their vacation in the crowd this is really the place to go. Great fun and all night long entertainment is the definition of holidays in Mykonos.

Most of the people are concentrated in the capital Hora, or Mykonos Town or in the area surrounding the city; to find a bit more calm and peacefulness, one has to go a bit farther away.
Despite the very populated aspect of the island, visitor will realize that Mykonos is very beautiful with a wonderful mountainous landscape, clear waters, long sandy organized golden sandy beaches, beautiful churches, chapels and windmills and picturesque villages. The greek holiday cliché that you never get bored of it.

The capital of the island, Hora or Mykonos Town is particularly charming
and considered as one of the most beautiful little cities of the Cyclades.
It is representative of the island’s architecture which is typically Cycladic with whitewashed cubic houses with flat roofs, blue doors and windows, narrow paved streets, flowered balconies and a picturesque and magical atmosphere.
This beauty has provided the setting for many movies that have been set in Mykonos.
The island is part of the Aegean group of island called Cyclades and lies between Tinos, Syros, Naxos and Paros. As a typical Cycladic island, Mykonos’ landscape is very stony and hilly and almost treeless, with only a few olive trees and a few bushes.

Delos and Rhenia are the islets surrounding Mykonos and closely related to it’ they were Greece’s most important spiritual centres during ancient times with Delphi and the acropolis of Athens.
They both are hilly and treeless, almost deserted, with a very few shepherds and many lizards wondering around the ruins of the great Ancient Greek civilization.

Night life in Mykonos Greece is very exiting and is one of the reasons of the huge tourism of the island. Often compare to Ibiza, Mykonos has a lot to offer in terms of entertainment.
