While the world is filled with incredibly beautiful places and an entire lifetime would not be enough to see and feel them all, there are some destinations on Earth that should be seen before everything else. Greece is one of these places, where the magical nature meets the legendary history and where one could discover more about himself than about its surroundings. The Greek Islands are truly enchanting and people have been traveling there ever since travel was invented, seeing amazing ancient cities and charming traditional Greek villages, with their unique white dwellings hanging over the azure blue seas. Among these unforgettable islands, one has become the most vibrant and a favorite destination for people looking for entertainment and fun.

Things to do in Mykonos:

From the thousands visitors traveling to Mykonos, many of them come by the sea, onboard massive cruise ships that stop to see the island. Unknown to many, this small Cycladic Island is much more than a party destination, with picturesque small fishing villages with white houses and small bays, with beautiful windmills and churches set around the charming Aegean coast. Nevertheless, most people arriving in Mikonos by cruise ships should definitely try the colorful and liberal nightlife on the island, with countless pubs, bars and discos, most of them open all night and featuring amazing atmosphere. Mikonos is also recognized as being an gay-friendly destination, with special locations just for the community. The other major attractions of Mikonos are definitely the beaches and the sea, with amazing destinations to relax and feel the unique vibe of the Greek islands.

Although shadowed by the nightlife and the beaches, Mikonos also offers some amazing and interesting landmarks for cruise passengers. The capital of Mikonos Town or Chora features exceptional attractions, starting with the famous white windmills overlooking the sea and offering amazing sunset views, the Little Venice quarter, the Panagia Paraportiani church and the famous Petros pelican. Still in the town, one could also visit the interesting museums, including the Maritime Museum, Archaeological Museum, Folklore Museum and others.
