Colin Fraser from GNN wrote a great piece on Mykonos this week that we now share with you. His article gives readers great insight into the wonders of Mykonos Island in Greece. Below are a few excerpts from his recent Mykonos Island Story.
Warm, deep blue waters lapping sun bleached beaches as ancient fishermen take the days catch to a waiting cafe. Grilled calamari and salad washed down with a bottle (or two, or three) of crisp wine is served as the sun sets into a beckoning ocean. Windmills dot cliff tops peppered with white-washed homes as enormous ferries shuttle between islands and the mainland, docking their craft on impossibly small wharves. The islands are a stunningly visual space, and visitors take home a very particular memory of Mykonos.
People looking for a gentler time head here. It’s a place for relaxing on the beach or reading a book under a sun umbrella. It’s for people who want to shake off the working week in an untroubled part of the world where you can be yourself.
With our dollar buying more Euros than ever before, and Europe’s tourist throng now reduced to a manageable hoard, Greece really is the word and Mykonos the word that you heard. To Read more about the Greek Island of Mykonos by Colin Fraser go Here

Where: Mykonos is located at the center of the Cyclades. It’s capital town (Hóra) exemplifies the Cycladic architecture; the church of Panayia Paraportiani; “Little Venice”, an 18th century district, dominated by grand captains’ mansions with colourful balconies and stylish windows; the quaint windmills standing imposingly on a hillside; the traditional settlement of Áno Merá, and of course the sun-drenched cosmopolitan beaches spread all around the island.
Why visit?: Mykonos is Greece’s most famous and cosmopolitan island. This whitewashed paradise is synonymous with entertainment and fun, where celebrities, college students and families mingle together to celebrate life. Whether you are an entertainment junkie out for a real good time or a culture vulture who wants to explore the island’s history and tradition, Mykonos will certainly live up to your expectations.
Where to stay: Mykonos has excellent tourist facilities; choose from luxurious hotels, rooms to let in Hóra or traditional guesthouses by the sea where you will find rooms from moderate to ultra deluxe.

Beaches & Water Sports: The “Island of the Winds” attracts surfers and sailors from all over the world! There is a great choice of beaches for windsurfing; however, the most secluded beaches on Mykonos are considered to be the best. Choose from Kórfos, Fteliá, Meyáli Ámmos and Kalafátis, where surfing lessons are also available. Play tennis or mini golf at Ayios Stéfanos, beach volleyball at Ayia Ánna or try sea parachuting or jet skiing at Eliá or Kalafátis.
