Mykonos - The white Paradise Aug 05, 2015
Mykonos - "The island of the winds"is the most famous cosmopolitan island, a whitewashed paradise in the heart of the Cyclades.
It was my first real taste of Greece,the perfect place if u like the Greek architecture,the Greek food, the great beaches,the turquoise water or the great night life - the island that never sleeps.
The island is not cheap at all so you have to be prepared to spend some money there.
I've booked a room at Mina Studio, a very nice place with great people and reasonable price.
I would recommend public transport, every 40 minutes u can find a bus to take you to the city center or to the beaches.
You can rent a car or scooter but with so many crazy drivers and the small streets, buses are more safe or taxi boats.
There is a local law in Mykonos that all the buildings have to be painted white. If you choose to paint your building another colour then you have to pay a really high rate of tax so most people just opt for the white, thats why i called the island -The White Paradise.
Don’t miss the opportunity to treat yourself to some local Aegean specialties,the fresh fish and many other great dishes.
During the night you can choose any local pub or u can go to Cavo Paradise Club, the biggest.
During the day on the beach after 4pm you can enjoy the beach party.
What can i say, everything was great, excepting the return flight,the airport is very small so sometimes the flight can be delayed.
I will return there for sure, maybe next summer :)

The Paradise Island Sep 08, 2010
This island, though small in size has many wonderful things to offer. Like Santorini, it is also a prime tourist destination and probably one of the most visited island in Greece.
Along the harbor are the rows of cafe bars and tavernas serving foods that fit one's delicate choice. Further up the port are the rows of centuries old windmills, churches and bell towers, and luxurious houses that depict Mykonos' rich culture.
The town is lined with narrow streets and alleyways of cobbled pavements that look like a maze, but then variety of shops and public buildings scattered all around.
At night, the town is getting crowded by people hopping on several bars and night clubs that serve variety of drinks and play contemporary music.
Not to forget are the famous beaches that Mykonos is proud of. With several organized beach parties coupled with sophisticated and wild night entertainment, paradise is really in the air. No doubt on it!!!
