From extravagant luxury to family picknicks, Mykonos is a magical holiday destination where visitors feel that all their wishes can come true. Some are looking for a paradise to enjoy endless swimming or snorkeling, with the sun’s rays penetrating the azure blue waters to reveal this rich and most beautiful seabed of the Mediterranean. Others get there only to be part of the amazing atmosphere and rocking energy of the never-ending party that takes turns in spectacular beach bars, notorious clubs; even in the streets with the music always loud and the people dancing as if there will not be any tomorrow.
There are also those who will visit this beautiful island to indulge in the mystic experience of its old, emblematic Byzantine monasteries or just taste the traditional local delicacies that can be found in the small taverns of the mainland. Moreover, while grownups will relax on luxurious sunbeds with private service, their children can try the most exciting water sports under the supervision of well-trained professionals. That is why everyone can have the time of their lives in Mykonos, no matter where they come from or where they go.
Mykonos was ‘found’ in 1873 by the archaeologists of the French archaeological school who had just started the excavations in the nearby sacred Delos Island. Looking for a neighboring spot where they could rest and find shelter, food, and fresh water to endure the fatigue and the heat that made their work very difficult, they set foot in Mykonos. Only 2 miles away, it was a beautiful island with unique sandy beaches and crystal-clear waters, and with few inhabitants who were mostly fishermen.
In the following years Mykonos was discovered by the Athenian bourgeoisie and became paradise for international celebrities. Gradually, the friendly islanders learned to welcome and accommodate the growing crowds of travelers sailing in, in a way that had nothing to envy from similar legendary holiday destinations such as Ibiza, St. Tropez, or Monaco. Ever since, hotels, resorts and beautiful private villas with full amenities keep attracting Mykonos’ lovers who know how to recognize the authenticity and true charm of this unique Aegean rock that is reborn every year, turning holidays into a magical experience for all!
