Mykonos is a very popular destination for cruise ships, and the town of Mykonos is full of restaurants, bars and nightclubs. There are also several museums and churches on the island. The most famous beach on Mykonos is Paradise Beach, which is located close to the town of Mykonos.

Mykonos is quite a contrast to Andros. While Andros has an element of sophistication to it, Mykonos is much more contemporary chic – and the island is way busier!
