Discover Some Fantastic Attractions with Mykonos Holidaysby 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
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.
