Bay Bees is a complex of holiday homes, each with separate entrance, tastefully decorated, fully equipped, featuring a homey kitchen with utensils and anything you may need that will make you feel like visiting your home in the island. The majority of the houses come with a private terrace with stunning views of the sea and they are all well furnished and equipped offering comfort and relaxation.
Platis Yialos (or Platys Gialos) is a cozy little village, 3,5 km from Chora, on the south side of the island. A long sandy beach – with just the right sand, fine enough not to stick to your feet -, equipped with sunbeds and umbrellas for every taste, crystal clear water, all kinds of water sports and a very well organized resort are what makes Platis Yialos a favorite destination for many holiday repeaters.
Famous for its nightlife and its breathtaking sandy beaches with green-blue waters, the cosmopolitan island of Mykonos basks in the middle of the Aegean Sea, next to Delos. The birthplace of Apollo, the god of light, shares its radiance and its energy with the humble land of stone next to it. The actual word “Mykonos” derives from the ancient greek words Mykon and themonia, which mean heap of stones. Under the impressive granite formations, according to the myth, are buried the giants killed by Hercules during the Gigantomachy.
Take your time to visit as many beaches as you can. Each one has its own unique character, from the family oriented, well connected Platis Yialos, the jetsetter Psarrou, the cosmopolitan Ornos, the hippy Paranga, the party-all-day-long Paradise and Super Paradise, the quiet Agrari, the families on the left and nudists on the right Elia, the long and wide Kalo Livadi, the shady –yes, with trees!- Kalafatis, the not so full of sunbeds Agia Anna, the usually windy Panormos, the waveriding and windsurfing Ftelia, the golden haven of Agios Sostis, the Delos sunset view Agios Ioannis (location for the award winning motion picture Shirley Valentine), the family oriented Agios Stefanos, the next to the town Megali Ammos,the easy-going but difficult to reach Lia, the remote and therefore peaceful Fokos, and the two secluded boat destinations, Tigani and Fragia.
The houses are extremely well equipped and are a unique haven for travelers in search of the incomparable warmth of a coffee or tea and a lazy breakfast at home, gazing at the Aegean sea, or the peace of enjoying a glass of wine with friends in your terrace under the magnificent reflections of the setting sun behind the hills and the lights of the Bay at night.
Walk through the alleys and unmask the beauty of Mykonos “Chora”, the island’s “down-town”, with its unique architecture. Among the various attractions, you will discover the charm of Little Venice, the imposing cylindrical whitewashed towers Kato Myloi (windmills)and the Kastro (castle) area featuring the architectural masterpiece of Panagia Paraportiani – a white church of unique plasticity… You can meet the descendants of Petros the Pelican strolling around Yialos, but only during daytime, as they go to sleep early!
