The queen of the Cyclades
Mykonos or the Island of the Winds is the place where tourists can live the holidays of their dreams. Life begins early in the morning, discovering the numerous beaches of the island and in the evening most visitors enjoy walking leisurely in the main town or having a cocktail and chilling.
If you consider travelling to the Island of the Winds you should know that you can visit a different beach every day, either an organized one or a wild one.-You will have the chance to enjoy the best blue –green waters regardless of the budget. Those who want it can simply take their beach towel and go look for a wild beach free of any sunbeds or beach bars. On the other hand they could just spend all day on a sun lounger and get up only after the sunset.
One can experience the most beautiful sunset in Little Venice or at the Lighthouse. Some of the most instagram friendly spots in Mykonos is the windmills and Little Venice.
As far as beaches are concerned, make sure you visit Ornos, Ftelia, Kalo Livadi, Elia, and in case you prefer a wild beach we suggest Fokos, Myrsini, Loulos and Choulakia.
Last, but not least, Ano Mera is considered the most attractive village on the island.
