It offers fine sand with sun beds and umbrellas for rent. Mykonos has a beach to suite everyone’s need. There are 25 beaches in total and they attract hordes of European tourists in summer.. Most people travel to Mykonos for its beaches. IMHO, the island’s biggest charm is the hilly interior, dotted with traditional villages. The island also welcomes the rich and famous. Recent visitors include Leonardo DiCaprio, Mariah Carey, & Usain Bolt to name but a few.
The beautiful island is known as a party island. Mykonos is also very welcoming to the LGBT community. Mykonos’ capital Hora is a must see location. The small town is a 10 minute drive from the hotel. Hora is home to several 16th-century windmills. They represent one of Greece’s most iconic features. Hora’s most popular area is Little Venice. This is a cluster of arcaded Venetian houses leaning over the sea. Little Venice is a photographer’s dream. The famous area features on countless postcards and paintings. The houses have been converted into bars & restaurants. The overwater terraces are the perfect location for a drink or romantic dinner. Little Venice is especially busy around sunset. It’s easy to understand why as the setting is utterly gorgeous in the fading light. Hora’s old town is a maze of narrow alleys. The streets are lined by whitewashed houses, tiny churches, restaurants and boutiques.
