Glistening white buildings with blue doors, hip bars and hotels and restaurants, and the whos-who of party goers and merry makers: that’s roughly what you’ll find in the island of Mykonos off the Greek coast. It won’t come cheap, either. The chic atmosphere and luxury lounging comes at a price, but Mykonos has its quieter, relatively cheaper corners. Cruise ships come visiting the port city every week, and the crowd peaks in the months of July and August. Here’s a look at some scenes of Mykonos that tell you why this place is just so popular.

On off-seasons, the crowds reduce and so do the prices, beaches and streets, making it a nice quiet haven south of Tinos and north of Naxos and Paros. One of the handful of world-famous travel destinations, Mykonos probably gets the most number of tourists in the Aegean islands, with Santorini offering some tough competition in terms of crowds and prices.
