Discover Some Fantastic Attractions with Mykonos Holidays

by Daisy Wilkinson Travel Guides

A Greek island located in the Aegean Sea, Mykonos is a part of the Cyclades group of islands and is visited by numerous tourists, including the leisure travellers and cruise-ship crowds. It has been nicknamed as the 'The Island of the Winds' owing to the strong northern winds experienced in this part of the world during summers. Mykonos is also one of the great destinations in the Cyclades for enjoying an exciting nightlife. During your time spent on this enchanting island, you'll get the chance to explore some fascinating attractions and indulge in thrilling outdoor activities.

The most popular attractions you can visit during your Mykonos holidays are the charming beaches of the island. Super Paradise Beach is frequented by those who don't like quiet surroundings and are in search of places with lots of music and open-air parties. If you are looking to have a great time dancing to some fabulous dance numbers and having loads of fun, this would be an ideal spot. However, if you're looking for a majestic beach with a serene atmosphere, head to the Panormos Beach, which is located on the northern part of the island. Panormos is harder to reach and has fewer options in accommodation, but you can enjoy complete relaxation on this beach.

During your holiday in this part of Greece, you can embark on an excursion to the village of Ano Mera, which is home to a monastery dating back to the 16th century. The marble fountain and a statuesque bell are one of the prominent features of this monastery. Once you get inside the building, you can explore a good collection of relics from the Byzantine era, which have been placed on display for the public. While exploring this monastery, you can also buy some attractive souvenirs from its souvenir shops and unwind in one of its restaurants. You'll also find an older monastery and the ruins of a Byzantine castle close to Ano Mera.

Your holiday on the Greek island would allow you to visit some historic religious sites, such as Panagia Paraportiani. It is a seaside church located at the entrance of the neighbourhood of Kastro. The structure has been constructed quite unusually with whitewashed walls and its unique design has made it a popular attraction in the area. Panagia Paraportiani has become one of the world's most photographed sites over the years. It can be attributed to an excellent combination of a unique architectural style and breath-taking views of the Aegean Sea that can be enjoyed from its location.

Kato Mili is one of the attractions you can't afford to miss while holidaying in this Greek island destination. The name given to these historic windmills translates as 'lower windmills'. In recent times, these windmills have become iconic relics and one of the most famous attractions on the island after their getting converted to museums. During your visit to these windmills, you would get to know the methods used by Venetians to harness the power of the wind from these windmills.
