The island covers just about 40 square miles, and there is public transportation, but to get to the remote corners, you can usually bargain with the owners of one of the many Mykonos car rentals. Then, you can head on out to the quiet beaches and out-of-the-way spots like Divounia Beach or the spectacular views from the Profitis Ilias volcano. In town, there are classic photo opportunities at Panagia Paraportiani, with its whitewashed exterior, and a little education to be had at the Aegean Maritime Museum. You can't miss seeing, or hearing, the hip Mykonos hotels, beach bars, and nightclubs, or the jet-setters shopping on Hora's fashionable Matoyánni Street. Hora does also have an inspiring 18th-century historic district that recalls more quiet times, with old captain's mansions and colorful balconies facing the sea.
Mykonos, true to its modern party reputation, designates the months of July through September as the Mykonos Summer Festival. This essentially means that the party is always on and you'll find world-class bands and DJs just about any time. One of the biggest festivals on the island these days is the XLSior International Gay Festival, celebrated in August. The streets turn into one big dance party for five full days of celebration of inclusion.
Mykonos, even with its party reputation, is still a Greek Island where tradition and family come first. So, if you're ready to head to fun in the sun on Mykonos, search the over 400 airlines and more than 510,000 hotels worldwide on Travelocity for your Mykonos package deals.
