What's Mykonos Like?
For a long time, Mykonos has been synonymous with partying and fun, especially for gay visitors. Often called the 'Ibiza of Greece', there are many well-known bars, nightclubs and party beaches enabling visitors to have a great time in the sun. There is more to this little island, however, with many other attractions worth a visit. The western edge of Chora is known as Little Venice, on account of the colourful houses and balconies jutting out over the sea. This is a great spot for a photo opportunity, as are the many winding streets of typical painted white houses with bright blue roofs. Mykonos is also known as the Island of Winds, and there are iconic windmills all over the island that were used to harness the winds that blow over the island. It's these winds that make Elia beach a hot spot for water sports, including windsurfing and sailing, as well.
Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Mykonos
It's easy to get along with the friendly locals on Mykonos. Learning a few Greek phrases, such as 'kali mera' (good morning), 'kali spera' (good evening) and 'kali nichta' (good night) helps, as does trying Greek wine over other European options at dinner. Make sure you're quiet as you leave the nightclubs, treat the island with respect and you will have a fabulous Greek holiday. If you do get stuck, the team at Hotels.com speak 11 different languages, so will be able to help you out. However, not even the staff at Hotels.com speak pelican, so if you encounter the famous bird, Petros the pelican, you'll have to simply wave hello!
