Some brief information about Mykonos Island

Mykonos is a Greek island, part of the Cyclades, lying between Tinos, Syros, Paros and Naxos. The island spans an area of 85.5 square kilometres (33.0 sq mi) and rises to an elevation of 341 metres (1,119 feet) at its highest point. There are 10,134 inhabitants (2011 census) most of whom live in the largest town, Mykonos, which lies on the west coast. The town is also known as Chora (i.e. the Town in Greek, following the common practice in Greece when the name of the island itself is the same as the name of the principal town). Mykonos' nickname is The island of the winds. Tourism is a major industry.

The sun shines for up to 300 days a year and it only rains between February and March. This arid climate means that there is very little natural vegetation. Although temperatures can rise as high as 40 degrees in the summer months, the strong winds means average temperatures are usually around 28 degrees. Winters are very mild with average temperatures of 15 degrees. The island's location means that, as a rule of thumb, temperatures are 2 degrees warmer in winter and 2 degrees cooler in summer than Athens.
