Mykonos

Trip Planner Europe  /  Greece  /  South Aegean  /  Cyclades  /  Mykonos

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. Take stress off the schedule by using our Greece travel planner .

Where to stay in Mykonos

More expensive than most other Greek islands, Mykonos boasts a string of stylish hotels catering to the world's jet set. The elegant Mykonos Town draws the biggest crowds with its mid-range and luxury hotels, which offer spacious rooms, sea views, and access to private swimming areas, all within minutes of the city center's shops and restaurants. If you have a limited budget, consider one of the western coastline's smaller towns, packed with simple but comfortable guesthouses just a short drive from sandy beaches and traditional taverns.
