Anyone who has been there will know, the reason why Mykonos is the best holiday spot in Greece is the variety it offers. For sunbathers, it offers some of the most beautiful beaches around while party lovers will think they have died and gone to heaven. As one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Mediterranean, Mykonos is guaranteed to be a holiday that will never be forgotten.
Mykonos is a relatively small land mass at 33 square miles (85.5 km squared) and belongs to the Cyclades group of islands which lay southeast of mainland Greece. The beaches are too numerous to name and the main ones are full of party animals of all ages, nationalities and any other cultural diversity imaginable. The southern islands attract the most visitors because it is shielded from the northerly wind, making the climate there perfect for much of the year.
Beaches on other sides of the island also have a lot to offer and are well worth exploring if you are looking for a less rowdy day out. Many beaches across the island are also well known for their water sports facilities; in particular Mykonos is the best holiday spot in Greece for scuba diving, with a host of reefs, caverns and wrecks to explore.
A day at the beach will be fully catered for as most are lined with restaurants and bars so you won’t miss a moment’s sun. All sorts of food is available such as traditional Greek cuisine for the more adventurous or good old fashioned British food for those who want a little taste of home.
Partying on Mykonos
When the sun goes down, beaches like Paradise, Super Paradise and Paranga really come to life and from around four in the afternoon, the music gets loud and the drinks start to flow. These beaches are nudist and gay friendly though there are family beaches available for those that need it. At the height of the season in July and August, the beaches are packed out through the night with people living life to full and the party doesn’t even stop when the sun comes up.
If you want to see some of the world’s top DJs, you only need to head up the road from Paradise Beach to find two of the best nightclubs in Europe, Cavo Paradiso and the Paradise Club Mykonos. Both clubs are open air venues complete with swimming pools, crazy crowds and one of the best atmospheres you are ever likely to experience.
Going out in Mykonos town provides another night to remember, whether you are with a group or looking for a romantic setting to take your loved one. Little Venice in particular is a great place to go as it offers a taste of life in a Greek town to the backdrop of some of the most spectacular sunsets you are ever likely to experience.
