Gorgeous Mykonos, voted in the Conde Nast reader's choice awards as Top European island.
A village that's movie-set perfect, safe, with fine food, stunning beaches of crystal water, friendly locals, artist-owned boutiques, what more can I say? Oh yeah- the nightlife is off the hook. The restaurants are packed at midnight and the nightspots close at dawn- or later.

If you haven't been- GO.

Better than great; my three days there were all too short.

MidtownGuy, how would you rate Mykonos against Santorini? I'd guess the nightlife is better in Mykonos.

Btw, the pix are gorgeous as usual. How did I miss this thread first time through?

I originally passed it by too, I glanced at the thread title and I swear I thought it said Nokias.

The place looks great enough as it is, but then you throw in the little fact that the nightlife is off the hook, and then you supply photos showing the daylife is crazy too, and, well - Midtown Guy, you sold me!

ablarc, when did you go?
For me, Santorini and Mykonos are very different islands from each other so I have trouble picking a favorite. Santorini wins in the drama category, with nothing quite comparing to the spectacle of living on the lip of a giant sea-filled caldera. In the morning the silence is broken only by the chirping of birds.
The sunsets from the highest and/or westermost part of the island are said by many to be the most spectacular on Earth.
Mykonos, however, is the little island with the gigantic personality. Postcard-perfect villages, beaches, nightlife, and the beautiful people there to oogle each other. I've never seen the island look better than last September, and it's enjoying a resurgence in popularity and hipness.
Mykonos and Santorini are the typical stops for most American tourists, but they don't typify the nature of other Greek islands, which retain a verdant character even in the height of summer. I usually urge travelers to Greece to visit at least one other island group besides the Cyclades.
Crete is wonderful, and Western Crete is a paradise.
