Happy Travel Tuesday! Mykonos, Greece is literally one of the most beautiful places on Earth. This is no exaggeration. Just this year U.S. News & World Report said Mykonos is the #2 best vacation destination in the world!
The word is out on Mykonos in a big way. Bar Refaeli, Maxim’s #1 most beautiful women of 2012, was spotted frolicking in the turquoise waters this week so if you’re in the mood for world class nightlife mixed with the treasure of natural beauty and rich history you’re in luck!
Let’s take a visual tour through the island of Mykonos.
“The cube-shaped buildings and whitewashed exterior facades of Mykonos scream Mediterranean. Winding roads twist through the main city of Chora, past expensive storefronts and beautiful churches that give the island a grounded sense of Greek tradition. But Mykonos is far from conservative, as it’s known for its rowdy beach parties and crazy nightlife. You are never far from a party at any point in the day.”
Flights from New York City to Mykonos start at $950 but will run closer to $1200. If you are looking for a more structured trip check out the official tourism website for more.
In Mykonos make sure you check out Paradise and Super Paradise beaches. They can become a little overcrowded in peak season but they are world class beach party spots.
“Craziest party I’ve ever been to.”
