One of the most cosmopolitan of all the Greek islands, 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 Delos (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.mykonos charter sailing

For decades, Mykonos and Delos have attracted the attention of special people. In a place so delicate, so enchanting and with such an ancient history as these islands, we all of us are dedicated to doing everything possible to maintain a balance between the long tradition of hospitality and the demands of contemporary Tourism.
Hora

 The capital, Hora, with its colorful harbor in which little fishing boats nestle happily side by side with luxury yachts, presents quite a different picture from the majority of Aegean island towns. While it is usual for island villages to be built on naturally amphitheatrical sites, Mykonos is spread out over a flat area and conveys an impression of solid aesthetic cohesion.
Along the whitewashed streets stand brilliant white box shaped houses with stepped walls for sitting on, wooden doors and windows and brightly-colored balconies. These are interspersed with small and impressive churches, pretty little taverns and shops selling souvenirs and other goods, and the overall sense is of being inside a film set.
On the low Kastro hill is the complex of churches known collectively as Our Lady , a superb arrangement of whitewashed masses created over the centuries and now recognized as a national cultural monument.
Of particular historical and aesthetic interest are the medieval houses in this district of the town, which stand like a wall above the sea protecting the west side of Hora.
The Archaeological Museum of Hora contains finds from tombs on  the nearby chartering yacht mykonos sailingisland of Rhenia, sculptures, vases and figurines. The Folklore Museum brings together a number of collections of furniture, icons, pieces of sculpture and folk musical instruments. Mykonos is also the home of the Nautical Museum of the Aegean, which has interest all of its own.
The countryside of Mykonos is a mixture of gray-green rocks ringed by prickly pear plants and little fertile areas carpeted with wild flowers. Here and there are tiny white-washed chapels and windmills.
Ano Mera
Ano Mera is, after Hora, the most important of the older villages on the island. Standing 8 km. to the east of the town, Ano Mera has the interesting monastery of Our Lady Tourliani, ornamented with fine wood-carvings . The church has a collection of valuable ecclesiastical vessels vestments and embroideries. The courtyard contains an interesting blether and a marble fountain.

Here lovers of the sea will find out-standing golden beaches such as Agios Stefanos, Psarou, Kalafatis, Platis Gialos, Ornos, Elia and Panormos.Mykonos is a busy island with all the amenities of a modern resort and with plenty to do - by day or night - for those who want to have a lively time. Yet visitors fond of more peaceful holidays will still find quiet corners in which to relax.
Let the island charm you and happy holidays.
