Mykonos | Greece Travel | Keytours Vacations

Mykonos is an eclectic place - pristine beaches, elegant boutiques, fine dining, and rowdy bars are all packed onto one tiny piece of land, a mere 15km long at its widest point. Partying is a round-the-clock affair here, against a scenic backdrop of whitewashed houses and Little Venice, Mykonos Town's most charming neighborhood.

Rising out of the crystalline waters of the Aegean Sea, Santorini's otherworldly volcanic landscape of black and red-sand beaches and enormous caldera meet quintessentially Greek white-washed houses and blue-domed churches.

Located in the Cyclades, in the heart of the Aegean, the tiny Island of Ios is packed with myriad aspects of the Greek world: sandy beaches, gleaming white houses and windmills, and both ancient and recent historical sites. According to legend, the poet Homer was buried here. The island has 365 churches and chapels - as many as there are days in the year.

Paros is in the heart of the Cyclades Islands. It has a serene landscape with fertile valleys, rolling hills dotted with small churches and monasteries, and endless sandy beaches with sparkling blue waters. It is home to famous monuments and the land is rich with an ancient and medieval past. Don't miss the picturesque white villages that are bathed in the unique, dazzling Aegean light.

Naxos stands out, thanks to its unusually crisp white beaches and an exceptionally lush, fertile terrain. With none of Mykonos' pretense or Kos' ferocious partying, the island is a destination for those who enjoy a good hike and low-key evening entertainment. Naxos is also home to its fare share of ancient sites, off-lying mountain villages, and excellent family-run taverns.
