Mykonos News

Mykonos is the most famous island in the Cyclades. Its re-putation has spread during the last years due to its unique lan-dscape, its archeological sites, its cosmopolitan environment and its magnificent seas. Mykonos is an island that is full of contradictions.
The contradicting elements that are apparent in this small stretch of land, give the island a distinct eccentricity. Mykonos sways between the traditional and the contemporary, from the simple to the complex, and from the accustomed and unaccustomed elements.
Mykonos is composed of two shades: the summer and winter shade. Its summer shade appears to be flashy and wild.
