Greek Island Highlights
Mykonos has an international reputation and quite justifiably attracts a large number of tourists from all over the world. Amongst them many intellectuals and well-known artists prefer Mykonos for their vacation. Next to Dilos (the financial center of ancient Greece) and 88 nautical miles from Piraeus lies the island with its beautiful white houses, narrow paths, many churches and wonderful beaches. Gray-green rocks girt with prickly pear bushes and plains covered in wild flowers, the occasional white-washed plaster of a rural house, a little church or a windmill are characteristic features of the Myconian countryside. Here the high mountains encountered in most of the Cycladic islands give way to small rocky hills which combine with beautiful beaches to make up the landscape of the island.
