Mykonos, one of the top tourist destinations

Mykonos, one of the top tourist destinations

Mykonos or Myconos is a Greek island and one of the top international tourist destinations, famous around the world for its cosmopolitan character and its intense nightlife. The island is part of the Cyclades, lying between Tinos, Siros, Paros and Naxos. It spans an area of 105.183 square kilometers and rises at an elevation of 341 m at its highest point. The island is composed primarily of granite. It has little natural fresh water and relies on the desalination of sea water in order to meet its needs. There are 9,320 inhabitants most of whom live in the largest town, Mykonos, also known as Chora, i.e. the Town in Greek, a common denomination in Greece when the name of the island itself is the same as the name of the principal town, which lies on the west coast. Archaeological finds indicate that the Ionians settled on Mykonos in the early part of the 11th century BC. More recent discoveries have uncovered remnants in Ftelia beach from the Neolithic Kares tribe dating back to as far as 3000 BC. In Greek mythology, Mykonos was the location of the battle between Zeus and the Gigantes, and the island was named in honor of Apollo's grandson Mykons. During these ancient times, Mykonos, due to its proximity to the highly populated island of Delos, situated about 2km away, became very important as a supply island and possibly as a getaway location for Delian citizens.Today, Mykonos is one of the world's most cosmopolitan islands, having become increasingly popular especially during the last 50 years due to the numerous international jet set visitors that spend their holidays on the island. It is widely known for its extremely rich, diverse and often intense nightlife featured by a vast number of bars and nightclubs. Mykonos is also distinctive for its sandy beaches, offering everything from crystal clear waters, windsurfing potential, sea side tavernas, bars featuring 24hour loud music and even full nudity in some cases. Many Greek and international celebrities have summer residences in Mykonos and can often be seen walking the white washed roads or having dinner at a small street side table of an expensive restaurant or a taverna. The island is also one of the most upscale areas of Greece, and its real estate is very expensive. The popularity of the island has given rise to a wave of real estate development with the construction of private homes, villas, and hotels. This has raised some concerns that the island may be gradually losing its character. In order to prevent this, the island's zoning requires all new buildings to abide by the rules of the Cycladic architectural style.The nightlife of Mykonos is marketed as among the best in Europe.1. Mykonos is rated among the top clubbing destinations in the Mediterranean, along with Ibiza, Ayia Napa and Rimini. Mykonos also attracts world famous DJs to its clubs and beach bars, the most well known of which are Paradise, Super Paradise and Paranga. In addition, Mykonos is a gay friendly resort area during the summer, featuring several gay clubs.2. Mykonos nightlife focuses mainly on bars rather than clubs, yet a number of notable clubs can be found throughout the island.3. Additionally a number of non Greeks have recently taken up residency in Mykonos coming mainly from Albania and the Balkan republics which is said to have created an uptick in petty crime.

Holidays in Greece 2013: where to go, what to pack

Holidays in Greece 2013: where to go, what to pack

Holidays in Greece 2013: where to go, what to packIf there's a silver lining to the financial crisis - is there a silver lining? - it's that you can go on holiday and feel almost like a philanthropist, given that some countries, especially the warm ones with beaches, could use the extra cash.With that in mind, is there a better place to be philanthropic than Greece? With some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, and hundreds of islands to visit, and with an economy that was particularly hard-hit by the financial crisis and suffering high unemployment, it's the perfect combination of need meeting need. Holidays to Greece in 2013 could be a great idea all round. And in fact many tourists have realized it, returning since visits dropped at the height of the financial crisis.But if you're not in the mood for crowded beaches filled with umbrellas and booze, there are hidden gems inGreecethat will provide all the relaxation and sun you need. Start with Kastelorizo, an island so isolated that, according to one guidebook, it's left off many maps. The island is the easternmost stretch of land inGreece, and is located less than 2km from the Turkish coast. While the rocky, steep coastline means its beaches leave something to be desired, Kastelorizo is still a perfect escape, with Olympic Airlines flying to the island daily fromRhodes. Colourful houses with wooden balconies, a castle and a historic mosque add to its charm.Other off-the-beaten-path holidays in Greeceinclude a particularly historic and spiritual island called Patmos, where St Johnis said to have written the New Testament book of Revelation. There are dozens of small churches on the island and a large monastery, testament to the island's outsized impact on Christian history. Much of the nightlife is near the town's quaint port and there are also very good beaches on the island. To get to Patmos, fly to Kosand then take the ferry - the only way there. In 2009, Forbes magazine named Patmos one of the most idyllic places in the world to live, noting its “air of quiet tranquillity” which it maintains from its spiritual past.What to bring toGreece? Very little actually other than the basics, given that most of what you might need, you can buy. Of course, in light of the sunny climate, and how pricey items like sunscreen can be on holiday, bringing sunscreen and other skin creams to take care of sun rash or other ailments is highly recommended.

Eressos, the birthplace of Sappho

Eressos is one of the most famous towns, known for its history and its beauty, situated to the southwest part of the island. The village Eressos is built four kilometres from the sea, among arid and volcanic mountains. It is a village that maintains its traditional character intact. The wonderful mansions that decorate the village reveal the economic and cultural development of the village.A straight road of 4 kilometres, that passes through the green plain of Eressos with the rich gardens, the abundant waters and the beautiful country houses takes us to Scala Eressou and to its famous beach (three kilometres long) which is the ornament of the area. In the past Sigri had been a port protected by the small islands to its west, from which the biggest is Nisiopi, as well as by the small fortress, which is by the sea. Today it is a very well organised summer resort frequented by many tourists, with many beautiful beaches and fresh fish. The sunset in Sigri is an enchanting and unforgettable spectacle, as we watch the sun "diving" into the waters of the Aegean Sea.
