When in Mykonos, Let your Eyes do the Talking

Sight: the physical sense by which light stimuli received by the eye are interpreted by the brain and constructed into a representation of the position, shape, brightness, and usually color of objects in space.

Merriam-Webster Dictionary

At the heart of the Aegean, the Cyclades look like stones thrown into the sea by a giant. The name of the most popular Greek island group refers to the circle (kyklos) thatthe islands form around the sacred island of Delos. Although the largest one is Naxos, the most famous ones are definitely Mykonos and Santorini. Mykonos, in particular, is known all over the world for its beautiful beaches, the picturesque alleys of Hora (Mykonos Town), its classy bars and restaurants, and of courseits unparalleled nightlife—especially during July and August—that is second to none!

For your very first acquaintance with this beautiful destination you just need to use your eyes. Before you even land or reach the port by ferry, you can already take a look at the Mykonian landscape. Let your eyes wander, taking in every detail of the Town and following the innumerous alleyways that connect to form mazelike neighborhoods. And just before you step foot on the island and get wonderfully lost between the whitewashed houses, have a look at them from above or afar; admire the way they’re built next to each other or how they’re scattered over the hills like sugar cubes. The most famous landmarks in Hora are the Windmills, standing proudly on a hill at the edge of the town, and the picturesque neighborhood of Little Venice with its colorful balconies literally hanging above the sea waves.

But beauty is not bound by the limits of this Town; it’s spread all over the island. It’s no secret, after all, that Mykonos has many idyllic beaches with crystal clear waters that invite you to dive and swim. One of the most popular beaches lies on the southeastern part of the island: Kalo Livadi is a long, sandy beach with turquoise waters, offering an amazing view to the Aegean archipelago and theisland of Naxos.

Nestled here, Solymar is designed in such harmony with its natural surroundings that it looks like it has emerged naturally from the sand. Every moment spent here is a feast for your eyes! Just let them wander across this slice of sun-soaked paradise and explore itsevery corner. Fill your sight with the sparkling reflections of the sunlight on the water and the waves washing over the sand. To get the most out of every experience, just let your eyes breathe and your soul will follow.

We invite you to experience Solymar and Mykonos with all your senses.
