Mykonos belongs to the Cycladic archipelago in the Aegean Sea and is one of the most popular Greek islands with mass tourism. She is known for her summery party mood. On beaches like Paradise and Super Paradise there are numerous bars that make loud music. The DJs start music early in the morning.
For us, the crystal clear waters on the beaches of Mykonos, the Cycladic, cubic architecture with the whitewashed houses and the multiple churches were the reason to travel to Mykonos.

Certainly one experiences Mykonos in the high season differently than we could experience it in the beginning of October. So the beaches were not so crowded and we could even find a bay for ourselves, totally for us. Mykonos town is always crowded, with 3 cruise ships in and around the city's harbor. But the masses are distributed in the many narrow streets.
In our time, the island was always quite windy. It´s typical for Mykonos locals told us.
It is worth to rent a car for a day or two or rent a quad like many tourists do. A quad should be higher motorized, since the roads are sometimes quite steep. The advantage of a quad is that they are not as wide as cars, and driving along the very narrow streets of Mykonos is certainly easier. When renting motorcycles, keep in mind that the road conditions are not very good, potholes, sand and boulders.
The island is quite barren, but also offers beautiful views of bays and also picturesque churches and island-typical white cubic houses with their blue painted window frames.
The water on Mykonos is crystal clear and invites you to swim. Just lovely. Luckily we have not seen any ocean pollution here yet.
The island is in the upper price level. You should be prepared for that when you travel. That refers to the many taverns and restaurants. Eating out is a lot more expensive here on Mykonos than on other Greek islands.
I was surprised to have to pay only 1 € for a bottle of water at the airport.
