Mykonos island - Argo Hotel

Mykonos island

Mykonos lies between Tinos and Naxos.

Situated on the northern side of the Cyclades, almost in the centre of the Aegean Sea, Mykonos has become one of the top destinations not just in Greece, but worldwide. According to mythology, Mykonos was formed from the petrified bodies of giants killed by Hercules and it was named after the grandson of the god Apollo.

A special place

Opinions vary on what makes this island so special. The inimitable traditional architecture with whitewashed houses and colourful windowpanes, the narrow marble pathways, the variety of stunning beaches, the famous landmarks such as Little Venice, the rocky natural beauty, the innumerable hidden chapels, the endless variety of restaurants that foodies can’t get enough of, the endless shopping options, the vibrant party scene, the high level of services… these are just some of the elements that contribute to the uniqueness of this place.

What sets Mykonos apart is that it satisfies successfully very diverse needs, making it the ideal holiday destination for travellers who want to lay back and relax, party-goers, fans of glamour, celebrity spotters, fans of water sports and more. For History buffs, the island of Delos, just a short ferry ride from Mykonos, is a must-see since it is one of the most important archaeological sites in Greece. Through the years, it has become very easy to travel to Mykonos, since there are many flights from all over the world, while ferries and sea jets arrive daily from the ports of Athens and various other ports around Greece.
