The Island of Mykonos is one of the top international tourist destinations of Greece, famous largely for its cosmopolitan character and its intense nightlife. The beauty and the glamour of the island have attracted the rich and famous from across the globe, who have made the island their home. Given this fact, it is not uncommon to rub shoulders with the celebrities here. On the flip side, this has also made the island one of the most expensive places in Greece.
For all its glamour, the island is an enchanting place where the high profile life of the celebrities is matched by the charms of a Cycladic town. Mykonos is also well known for its sandy beaches, offering everything from crystal-clear waters, windsurfing potential and sea-side taverns. Also, worth visiting is the area known as Little Venice. Here, you will find buildings that have been constructed right on the sea's edge with their balconies overhanging the water. You can also check out the Archaeological Museum, which houses marble sculptures, ceramics and jewellery recovered from the islands of Delos, Renia and Mykonos. Also worth visiting is Delos, one of Greece's most famous archaeologic sites, located 2 kilometers to the west of Mykonos. The entire island has been declared a national museum.
