What's Mykonos Like?
The island of Mykonos appeals to a wide cross-section of people with a picturesque quality to the island that draws people over and over again. One of the areas that travelers enjoy is the Little Venice Quarter; with rows of houses nestled right along the seashore, many of the balconies used to be utilized in times past to help the ships unload their cargo. Paradise Beach is another area that is popular with locals and visitors alike. Many vacationers enjoy swimming and sunbathing along the shore. For the history buff, the church of Panagia Paraportiani is located just outside the Venice Quarter and is a rather imposing structure that was built between the 14th and 17th centuries. The church is unique for its time because most of the chapels making up the church are underground with only the dome being visible to the naked eye. There is also a number of museums throughout the island, including the Aegean Maritime Museum, which houses artifacts from the sailors that have come and gone over millennia.
Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Mykonos
The tourism industry is thriving in Greece. In Greek culture it is perfectly okay for tourists to bargain with the local business people and shopkeepers. If you decide to go to Paradise Beach, please be aware that it can be rocky in places. Because of that, you should strongly consider renting a beach chair to sit in. Although this generally runs around 4 euros, you can also try to strike a deal here. Many of the hotels offer buses to and from the most popular beaches. There are several other things that you should know about the island, including that it's definitely a party-type of tourist attraction. There are many clubs, bars, and other types of attractions of that nature. Be aware that you may encounter some intoxicated people at times. Second, the streets on the island are very narrow, and the drivers are not always the best. If you are renting a car, drive very carefully on Mykonos, because the local drivers often will pass someone with total disregard to oncoming traffic. If you desire to do something that is popular with the locals, be aware that there are a number of companies on Mykonos that offer kayaking and scuba dive tours for a day or more. Venere provides you with all of the Mykonos Hotels and with trip information as well. Enjoy your visit!
