Windy Mykonos

Updated: Dec 28, 2018

Mykonos is a Greek Island nicknamed "The Island of the winds". We have visited the island in the month of July and, there were very strong winds that blows throughout the whole trip, but it wasn't affecting our trip at all. The Aegean Sea during July is swept by North wind, locally know as "meltemi".

The Mykonos windmills are iconic feature of the island, most of them were built in 16th century by Venetians. There are currently 16 windmills on Mykonos of which seven are positions on the landmark hill in Chora.

As of now, with the modernization, the windmills are no longer operational. But they continued to be a symbol of Mykonos rich past.

There are a few mythologies behind this island. Mykonos is the gateway to the scared island of Delos, the mythical birthplace of Apollo and Aphrodite. Also the island said to have been the place of the great battle between Zeus and the Titans.

This most popular Greek island's hilly interiors is dotted with small traditional villages. The island's classic whitewashed building and turquoise skies brings unique beauty to this island.

The churches and boutiques are every where adds additional beauty and make the island a place picturesque town.

One of the most popular Greek Island in the Aegan, with picturesque towns and fantastic beaches.
