Our visit to the island of Mykonos will begin through the typical landscape of the Cyclades Islands.

 

Mykonos is the island of winds and stones with many white chapels, traditional dovecots scattered throughout almost all the villages that characterize everyday life of Mykonos.

 

Passing through the region of Ornos, considered as the most touristic region of Mykonos, we will reach St John beach (western part of the island) where we will make the first stop to take some pictures of Delos. The island, right in front of the beach, is the sacred island of the god Apollo and houses its sanctuary, one of the most important archaeological sites in Greece.

 

Crossing the central part of the island, we will reach the Kalafatis beach, one of the eighty dream beaches that surround the island.

 

In the cafeteria next to the sea and in front of the Aphrodite goddess Tits, that is, the hills of land that dominate the landscape, we will make the second stop to take pictures of the beach, waves and surfers.
