Mykonos island - Ornos
Mykonos, one of the most popular destinations for tourists worldwide, maintains its genuine Cycladic profile intact in spite of its massive tourism development, and enchants visitors with its crystal blue waters and its golden sandy beaches. The tranquil image of the shining white housing in the azure background above and below blends with remarkable harmony with the vivacious clubs with loud music. The famous traditional windmills also coexist with the modern restaurants, the unique region of 'Mikri Venetia' with the 'bouzoukia', the expensive market stores with the breathtaking beauty of the beaches and the four hundred churches which decorate and sanctify almost every corner of the island. Its population is about 6300 residents, while its extent covers 90 sq.km.
The beauteous island of Mykonos is an ornament to the entire Greek territory. It immediately casts its spell on everyone who sets foot on the island, as he is captivated by the picturesque main town, the traditional windmills, and the beaches of unparalleled beauty, while the superb tourist infrastructure is beyond any comparison. Fortunately, aggressive development has not touched the image of Mykonos. The whole island can be considered as an open-air museum of traditional architecture, representative of the Aegean style, with the church of Panagia Paraportiani -situated in Chora- being a true credit to local Cycladic tradition. There is the renowned area of Alefkantra, also know as Small Venice, along with hundreds of small charming churches and chapels. Then, one should visit the well, close to the settlement and beach of Platy Gialos, with the underground cistern. It can be reached by going down some narrow stairs. There are numerous magnificent beaches, such as the Paradise and the Super Paradise beach, where visitors can rest after nightlong parties, often in the company of many international celebrities. A visit to the nearby islet of Delos, which has been declared as an archaeological site of major importance, is considered to be essential. Being the sacred island of Apollo, god of light, Delos is an evocative place, which bears witness to the splendor of the Greek spirit. Situated only 1 nautical mile off the western end of Mykonos, this islet is a pilgrimage for travelers from all over the world, who admire the 5000 year-old monuments, reminiscent of its glorious past. This was the center of the mighty Athenian Alliance, and the base of its treasury.
The 4-stars Hotel ANAMAR BLU, member of the Anamar Hotels & Resorts group, is located in an ideal position at the island of Mykonos, granting its visitors a spectacular view to both the beach of Ornos and Mykonos town.
