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
