A hidden gem that proves that small is beautiful, and will sweep you off your feet with its beauty, charm and relaxing rhythm. A lot of years ago, Mykonos was a well-kept secret, known to a discerning few. Now, more and more people are discovering this tiny, remote island with its rugged beauty and easy pace. Its main town, Hora, teeters precariously on the edge of a high cliff with its many squares framed by graceful, typically Cycladic church facades and old-fashioned tavernas.
