Mykonos is a Greek island, part of the Cyclades, lying between Tinos, Syros, Paros and Naxos, whose largest city is also called Mykonos. The island spans an area of ​​85.5 square kilometers (33.0 sq mi) and rises to an altitude of 341 meters (1,119 feet) at its highest point.
In the maritime area of ​​the Panormos region and other locations around the island of Mykonos seals can be found.
It is an island made by God for the people.
Who has ever visited Mykonos has nothing to say about swimming in its vast blue waters without limits, or having had unforgettable moments.
Mykonos, the sea, the sky, the sun, the hospitality, the fun, the harmony, the charm. A true endless myth around this island, something special, challenging the visitor to live it, taste it, taste it.
A barren, barren, sunburnt island but full of golden sandy beaches and crystal clear waters. The white color, the stone and the scattered mountains are indelible memories in the mind.
The natural elements are alive and strong, filling, guiding the visitor in new sensations, having the air, the sun and the moon as eternal guides.
The harmony of Mykonian architecture is truly amazing. The location and shape of the city of Mykonos is to build - within the North Eye of the harbor, the particular colors, is an exceptional masterpiece. No man and no plan could create something so unique. The feeling of getting lost in the alleys is fascinating. The exit to the sea is where a walk ends, with a glass of ouzo and the view of the boats.
When the sun goes down the mood changes. The rhythm becomes vibrant, fast, full of fantasy and intensity.
A little Venice with bars and cafes that overlook the most beautiful sunsets and the people who give you the most seductive temptations.
White windmills dominate the island, the church, as old as the hills, etc.
The cuisine in Mykonos is mainly Mediterranean, using olive oil and vegetables forming the basic part of the recipe, and some spices (oregano, basil etc) and in many other sometimes seafood.
