Mykonos travel guide

4.1
Beaches · Landmarks · Nightlife
Island of the Winds
Local tradition claims that Mykonos, the trendiest of the Cyclades group of islands, came into existence from the petrified bodies of giants killed by the mythological hero Hercules. Named after the grandson of the god Apollo, this cosmopolitan "Ibiza of Greece" offers modern tourists a blend of glamour and simplicity. Be prepared for hip and loud dance clubs along the coastline and quieter areas farther from the water. Avoid cruise ship crowds thronging the narrow streets by exploring the small villages located in the center of the island. The easiest way to discover the island's golden beaches is by guided boat tour, private car, or motorcycle.

Beaches · Ruins · Nightlife
Zeus, the master of all gods from Greek mythology, allegedly grew up in a cave on Naxos, a small but fertile island in the South Aegean Sea. Renowned for its unspoiled beaches and advantageous winds, the island offers excellent conditions for windsurfing and other watersports. Most of the island's western coastline boasts one sandy beach splashed by blue waters rich in marine life--a big draw for amateur scuba divers. The mountainous interior provides a look at the quieter side of the island, featuring a patchwork of lush valleys, quaint villages, and ancient sites. For a change of pace and a bit of modern dining and shopping, visit Hora, the island's biggest city.

Wine Island
Known for dramatic views and romantic sunsets, the island of Santorini draws visitors with its long string of black, white, and red beaches. The largest and most significant of a small group of volcanic islands located just 200 km (120 mi) southeast of Greece's mainland, Santorini boasts just over 15,000 permanent residents. Created by a massive volcanic eruption that likely destroyed a single large island, the archipelago still features an active volcano, which saw its last eruption in the 1950s. The easiest way to explore Santorini's craggy coastline is on foot. Start by visiting the archaeological sites on the island's southwestern side, which offer a chance to discover the area's ancient past with unobstructed views of the famed volcano.
