MYKONOS, GREECE

Mykonos (Greek: Μύκονος) is a Greek island, part of the Cyclades, lying amongst Tinos, Syros, Paros and Naxos. The island spans an area of 85.5 square kilometres and rises to an elevation of 341 metres at its highest point. There are 10,134 inhabitants (2011 census), most of whom live in the largest town, Mykonos, which lies on the west coast. The town is also known as Chora (i.e. the Town in Greek, following the common practice in Greece when the name of the island itself is the same as the name of the principal town). Mykonos' nickname is 'The island of the winds'. Tourism is a major industry and Mykonos is well known for its vibrant nightlife.

  2. I hadn't expected to see windmills in Greece. Is that what those structures are? They have an unusual design as well - broad base.

  5. Mykonos is one of the world's gems, isn't it? And your photo is beautiful, with the sky reflected in the water, both of them a wonderful indescribable colour.
