The Mykonos beaches alone would make up a truly diverse menu. They are categorized by such classifications as: "Cosmopolitan", "Relax", "Family", "Alternative", "Funky", "Sports" and even "Gay-Friendly". Most have a very liberal attitude towards choice of beachwear or the lack thereof. Choose one or, better yet, experience them all.
The name speaks for itself. Among other things, Paradise Beach is made noteworthy by the fact that the very first campsite in Mykonos was situated right there. A special atmosphere is added by a number of small beachfront bars, completely dresscode-free: enjoy your endless holidays! Paradise Beach mostly attracts the gilded youth.
Justly proud of being one of the island's beaches least spoilt by tourists. It is a quiet and scenic spot mostly frequented by loners and visitors weary of crowds. Sunbathing on Fokos Beach is not advisable, however, as oil from cargo ships is occasionally washed ashore by high waves.
A museum under an open and clear sky. Imagine a completely unpopulated island guarding countless secrets and legends. Today the only trace of the ancient civilisations are sculptures. If you listen well, you'll hear the footsteps of the past. There even used to be a law prohibiting being born and dying on this island of Gods. The nearby Mykonos was allocated for this purpose.
Anyone who has ever set foot on the island of Delos may possibly forget the shrines, the ruins of monuments and buildings. What makes the place truly unforgettable is the indescribable light and its interplay with the terrain. Delos is one of the brightest places on earth. Legend has it that this island used to be the home of the Greek god Apollo. Others describe its special energy as some kind of cosmic force.
Delos is located a mere 30 minutes' drive from the coast of Mykonos. The time to visit the island is early morning since the afternoon heat will make the trip unbearable.
