The landscape of Mykonos, with its granite rocks, its merciless sunlight, its deep blue sea, its picturesque windmills and whitewashed houses is interspersed with many great chapels. Cleanly whitewashed, with domes or rooftops and with well wrought bell towers, they are to be seen at every barren slope or desert bay. Mykonos boasts over 350 chapels, some of which treasure rare monuments of ecclesiastic architecture and Byzantine art; such chapels are the Aghia Eleni of the Castle, the Panachrantos, the Aghia Kyriaki, the Panagia of Rakintzis, the St. Nicolas of Rachi, the Panayia Koumarou of Marathi, the Panagia of Kouzis, and the Aghia Hipakoi in Mykonos Town. In the City of Mykonos one can also visit one of the most beautiful churches in all of the Cyclades, namely the famous Panagia Paraportiani (=our Lady of the Gate side, named after its position next to the castle's gate), a splendid building with arches and arcades - a true monument of Cycladic architecture.
Mykonos is one of the most touristic islands in Greece, known throughout the world. The incomparable picturesqueness of the small white houses, the narrow lanes, the small churches, the traditional windmills, as well as the throbbing nightlife makes it a pole of attraction for thousands of visitors. There are many reasons for you to visit Mykonos and Delos during the bustling summer period, as well as during quieter times of the year, and even more reasons to try to investigate the island’s extremely interesting, historical, cultural and nautical past, which is still present in the architecture and the excellent museums.
Mykonos has developed in the 70's into one of the most popular travel destinations in the Mediterranean. Mykonos is visited by over a million of tourists every year, many of whom are international VIP's. A great, cosmopolitan place, with great opportunities for nightlife throughout the City's and the Port's picturesque alleyways, is probably still under the protection of the wine god Dionysus!
Mykonos’ cosmopolitan character has made it famous as an international tourist resort. However, even the most unsuspicious visitor realizes immediately that Mykonos is not only a “crazy bon viveur” but also a beautiful, picturesque island with an all-white Hora (Chora – the main village) next to the crystal clear blue waters of the Aegean Sea. An island that enchants the visitor with the golden, sandy beaches, the typical Cycladic color, the lively atmosphere, the friendly and easy-going people and the endless relation with the glorious past.
The whole complex of island including Mykonos-Delos-Rinia having been officially characterised as “an era of exquisite natural beauty” is protected in accordance with special legislation in order to preserve the unique natural and aesthetic beauty of the landscape. The tourist who comes to Mykonos, wherever he finds himself and despite the tourist development, can enjoy a unique natural environment with dentelated coasts, impressive rocks, old cottage houses, countless small and secluded churches, huge windmills and tiny pigeon lofts. All these together with the clear atmosphere, the summer breeze, the colors – light and dark blue, grey, white – explain why Mykonos has inspired painters and photographers and has become the favorite holiday resort for many socialites.
The island’s beauty as well as the friendliness of the people and the eternal magic of Delos, one of the most sacred places of Antiquity, have made Mykonos one of the most cosmopolitan holiday resorts of the Mediterranean, if not the whole world.
Various famous people coming from all domains of human activities have visited Mykonos; intellectuals and politicians, artists and members of the international jet-set, fashion designers, tycoons, top models, famous photographers, kings, archaeologists etc. The list is so long that it would be difficult to fill it in without serious omissions. In spite of the island’s tourist development, the people haven’t changed. If one visits Mykonos today, during winter, and attempts to approach, talk and mingle with the locals, one will realize that the majority of the Mykonians are still friendly, ordinary, warm, easy-going people and they always find time to keep their traditions and their customs.
When to go
The beautiful temperature climate enjoyed on Mykonos means that you can visit it more or less all year round. The July-August period is the peak of the tourist season and the island is full of crowds – however you can still enjoy a quiet holiday with our help and advise. In June and September, you will find quite a few people. Another advantage in visiting before or after the peak is that there are no meltemia, or strong summer winds as they are known. And the weather is hot and dry – perfect swimming conditions.
Easter is also a good time to visit Mykonos because you will get to witness many of the local traditions and customs, and because this is the start of the tourist season, so the island is organized in many ways.
In October the island cools down after the rush and prepares for winter, but the weather is normally still good enough to allow swimming. During winter, however, most shops are closed and very few people remain on the island. This is a time when the island shows a completely different, pleasantly surprising face, compared to the one during the tourist season.
