AirBnB says Mykonos is the number 1 trending spot for American travelersMykonos may be only 6.2 miles long and 9.3 miles wide, but this Greek island packs in plenty of attractions for American travelers. However, its size means that accommodation can be hard to find on the island, especially during the peak summer season. Meanwhile, AirBnB points out the range of accommodation available on the island, including rooms, apartments and homes, which cater to all.
Let’s take a look at why the small island of Mykonos is such a major destination for US travelers.
Party the night away in Mykonos, GreeceMykonos is famed for its lively party atmosphere, with a choice of many beach bars and dance clubs to choose from. For those seeking a party, beaches like Paradise and Super Paradise are the places to be for beach bars and loud music. Meanwhile, the island has some of the best nightclubs, including Moni and Void in the center of Chora where people can dance the night away. While Ibiza in Spain has always been the party capital of the world, this small Greek island is quickly catching up to its Spanish counterpart.
Laze on idyllic beaches this summerNaturally, the islands’ many beaches are a major draw for visitors from around the globe. In fact, Mykonos has more than 30 beaches to choose from. However, the beaches on the south of the island are well organized with all the necessary amenities. For example, Psarou Beach is the place to be for celebrity spotting
However, to the north of Mykonos, remote and hidden beaches can be found. While these are an attraction for someone who wants to escape the crowds, little is available in the way of amenities.

No matter which beach you visit, all are equally beautiful.
