Mykonos is one the Cycladic islands in the Aegean Sea. It is a place that you either have a huge aversion to or a huge love for. It is a stunning island with raw, dry natural beauty and exquisite beaches. However, during July and August it offers an extremely active party scene and a busy cosmopolitan air, that is not for everyone! 


How to get there:

By air: daily flights

By boat: daily ship and high-speed ferry departures from the ports of Piraeus and Rafina



Where to stay:

There are a great number of hotels and rooms for rent.

Andronikos Hotel, situated a few meters above the old port, is decorated with works of art and offers friendly service.
