Last summer I visited Mykonos, one of my favorite destinations!!! Luckily I have a friend who lives there during the summer and I knew that we were going to have a blast. I had heard a lot about this island mostly about the parties and the amazing clubs of the town. Let me say that the town is really wonderful, you see everywhere these charming white washed houses and the small paved streets with the lovely shops where most of them are almost hidden. I was there in August and Mykonos was extremely crowded so I didn't get to see everything I wanted but I got a really nice taste of what was about to come.

We went to the famous Super Paradise beach, however I was not surprised or anything, you couldn't easily find a place to leave your things, instead you had an option to make reservations from the previous day for a spot with an umbrella and sundeck. To make the long story short, we visited other beaches, more private, like Lia, Agia Anna and Platis Gialos. La Notte is one of the best clubs ever. We danced till the next morning, it was fantastic. I also recommend Skandinavian Disco for those who are in to the 80s. All people are very friendly and kind. And not as gay as they rumor!

To all who wish to experience the magic of a Cycladic island, this is Mykonos. I arrived there last summer with a couple of friends to enjoy 4 days of relaxation and nightlife. We left our things at the hotel, and begun to tour around the village. We stayed in Chora, a wonderful village with narrow streets and whitewashed buildings. It has many well-preserved churches with the great architecture is a gift to the Greek culture. I liked most of the beaches, and more particularly Elia, a long sandy beach with clear blue waters. We also went to Paradise but I wasn't so excited because it was too crowded for me. Otherwise, it is considered ideal for the party animals. We wanted to see more of the beaches but unfortunately there was no time left. But I surely recommend the beaches we visited: Elia, Paradise, Super Paradise and Agios Stefanos.

As we all know, Mykonos is an island mostly famous for its nightlife and amazing beaches. Me and a couple of friends decided to visit this lovely island last summer. As soon as we arrived at the port of Mykonos, we thought we shouldn't waste too much time wandering around with our luggage, so we left our things to the studio which was only 15 minutes away from the port and started our big tour in Chora.

Chora has a typical Cycladic beauty with whitewashed houses and narrow streets. We saw numerous cafes and a variety of shops that were attracting hundreds of visitors every day. The view of the white chapels is something worth admirable. You can also find great taverns and local shops that will impress you.

The beaches of Mykonos are widely known. However, one of the most famous is Paradise beach which attracts mostly the younger crowds. It is located between Paranga beach and Super Paradise beach and you can go there by bus or by taxi-boat. You will find numerous bars there and you will have plenty of choices in water sports. Super Paradise has the most crystal waters and can get overcrowded in August. If you want to see celebrities, Psarou is the beach. It is very organized in the sense that you will have all you need (umbrella, coffee, snack and drinks) but still keep in mind that in the peak season it becomes extremely crowded. It is 5 km away from the capital village and you can go by local bus or boat. Small boats also go to other beaches around the island, till Lia beach.

No need to talk about nightlife, I'm sure you already have an idea from other sources or tourists. My description about nightlife in one word? Perfect!

Mykonos was absolutely georgeous. Enjoyed a magnificient view from the villa on the hilltop. Attractions in Mykonos are countless and reach both ends of the spectrum, starting from a pelican visiting a jewelry store up to nightclubs where guys wearing thongs dance on the bar.

Beaches had crystal clear water and most importantly chairs to rent. If you go to Mykonos, go to Paradise Beach and experience you will never forget. At 7PM everyday, the beach party starts at Tropicana Bar, with the greatest presenter "King of Mykonos" SASA. Then end the night with a classy party at Paradise Club.

Nightlife in Mykonos is absolutely out of control. Mykonos is ridiculously crowded at night and there are clubs and bars in every corner of the town. You can drink in public all you want, so if you decide to leave a club, there is no problem with taking your beer with you. In Mykonos nightlife is wild. Could be fun for couples, but going with friends in Mykonos guarantees having a better time.

Historical monuments were a bit scarce in Mykonos, but for those who love history and archeology I would recommend taking a few hour trip to Delos, a 15minute boat ride to see the ruins of an entire city as well as the famous lions.

The dining experience was good, though I always grabbed chicken gyros, since there was so much to do and never had time to eat. I would recommend Taverna Antonini and most importantly the store next door, DELI, where they make the best gyros in the world, and the service is so good.

Security is an issue in Mykonos. My beach bag together with 2 cell phones and 40euros worth of souvenirs were all stolen from underneath my seat at the beach party at Tropicana Bar. Keep your possessions under control all the time. Make something out of every minute that passes by, since when you leave you will miss it so much. I would recommend traveling with the HighSpeed Ferry. GO TO TROPICANA BAR BEACH PARTIES!

Amazing vibe of excitement

A company of three friends, we decided a short trip to Mykonos, only a charter away from London. Our studio was 10 minutes walk from Mykonos Town and had a splendid view to the sea.

As it was my first time in Cyclades, I loved the small white houses and the narrow streets, so different from modern architecture. My suggestion is to prohibit motorbikes in Mykonos Town because they ruin the atmosphere with their noise. My favourite spot was Little Venice, which has the best night clubs all over the island. The bars in the beaches created a fun atmosphere in the day but they closed at midnight, when all people are gathered in the town.

Paradise was a fun beach but I mostly loved Super Paradise and Elia. The best beaches, the most gorgeous sea color: deep blue. You see Super Paradise from the street and you get amazed. Need to climb down some stairs to get to the sandy coast and you see people dancing in the clubs, you hear the loud music while swimming and get filled with this amazing vibe of youth and excitement! Great island!

Unlike some of the reviews that scream about the place being a paradise for the rich and famous, my experience was not too bad, although I am neither too rich nor famous! I got along just fine with 20 euros a day (without the hotel). I don't ride a scooter, so I walked and took a bus whenever I could. This was cheap and reliable too, and in any case a better option than the pricey taxis.

Don't be put off by its infamous gay reputation. Although, I got hit on a few times at the local bars, it is not something you can't handle. If you are a beach person like me, Mykonos has several "not-to-be-missed" beaches. And if you want to escape the crowds sometimes, like I do, take a boat shuttle from Plati Yialos and head to Agrari beach in the south. There is also the unspoilt Lia Beach set in a lovely Cycladic landscape, a little away from town. There were only a handful of people.

A spot not to miss is also Little Venice, a place where the whitewashed buildings stand right on the seaside with their balconies overhanging the waters. As I sat sipping a drink at one of the cafe bars separated from the waters by a narrow promenade, and watching the lovely sunset and colorful boats bobbing in the waters, I thought this was perhaps the most beautiful spot in Mykonos. In the evenings, head to the windmills and watch the amazing sunset, as the orange sun deeps into the blue sea.

Scooter rental to avoid

We visited Mykonos as part of a cruise, limited time to spend on the island. We rented scooters at Easy Rent. While the advice given was helpful (we visited Paradise Beach and the west part of the city), the service was terrible. We rented the scooters for a day, though we were only going to use them for a few hours. One ran out of gas 1 km down the road. One of the staff came out and put some gas into it. There were no working fuel gauges, and I would have thought that that amount would have got us to Paradise Beach and back... no such luck- we ran out of gas again! The attitude (too bad, so sad) back at Easy Rent cast a shadow on the few hours that we had to spend on that beautiful island.

Changed a lot since my youth

I was returning to Mykonos after nearly two decades: my last visit was when I was still a student, and Mykonos of my memories was simply awesome. I had stayed at an ordinary pension, about a couple of kilometers from the main town, and the beauty of the landscape and the stunning sunsets were breathtaking. I remember sitting at the town waterfront and enjoying a drink, while watching the fishermen hauling in the day's catch at noon, and within an hour, the fresh fish from the nets had been cooked for us. The locals were friendly and helpful, and the whole place had a magical appeal to it.

And so I was not prepared for the totally transformed place I saw when I visited Mykonos in July. From the highly priced vodkas and tonic, to the innumerable tourist traps, to the extreme night life, the island had completely transformed and was far removed from Mykonos of my student days. Of course taste differs, and I am sure there are lots of people out there who would think that the island is the holiday Mecca of the world with its frenetic pace, non-stop fun and wild partying that has the cash registers ringing, but for people like me, we would give anything to recreate the magic of the yester years, when Mykonos had been a simple Greek island yet to be swallowed up by the mass tourism.

I made it a point to visit the nearby island of Delos (something I had missed on my last trip) and spent a couple of hours wandering around the ruins of ancient temples and theatre that had been plundered by conquerors down the ages.

Magnificent holidays

A holiday in Mykonos was a dream come true for me and my wife, and we decided that our anniversary was an occasion that called for blowing up some money and having the time of our lives, and that is just what we did on our week-long stay in Mykonos, the island that is regarded as the nightlife capital of Greece.

As our ferry touched port, we saw the amazing spectacle of white sugar cube buildings clustered around the quayside reflecting the brilliant colors of the sunlight, and equally impressive was the maze of cobblestone pathways lined with little cubical buildings whose balconies had a riot of brilliantly colored flora, and every so often, we would spy a tiny chapel with its brilliant blue dome and charming courtyard filled with fragrant flowers. We walked along the narrow path that separates the waters from the multitude of bars that "Little Venice", one of the hot spots in Mykonos has to offer.

All those things we had read about the famous Paradise and Super Paradise beaches had piqued our interest. The place was one big party and the gay scene is pretty much in the face, especially along the western end of Super Paradise. Magnificent holidays and a great place to celebrate our first anniversary!!

See the unexplored part

It was my first time in Mykonos last summer and it looked a lot to the descriptions of friends who had been there already: beautiful but busy. Of course, what to expect from middle July when the tourist season is at the highest? The only calm hours was early in the morning (at about 7 to 10), when the youth had just gone to sleep after the all-night parties and the elder had just waken up. I stayed for 3 days in Mykonos and saw most of the island. A rented motorbike solved my problems and saved me from waiting the bus and loosing my time at the bus stop. The boats that departed from the port were good for going to the beaches but I also wanted to see the mainland, the unexplored part of Mykonos. And I saw!

I saw small churches here and there, rocky coasts on the north, a beautiful lighthouse, a dam with a narrow road to walk over it and large villas of rich people. Not surprising I guess because Mykonos is one of the most cosmopolitan places in the Meditteranean. It seems that most traffic in Mykonos is found in Chora and the beaches of south, but the rest of the island is equally nice, too! As I was not interested in nightlife, I can't talk about clubs and bars, but the people I met on the street at night seemed to enjoy it very much! Not the best Greek island I have been, but certainly a must see!!
