Touch down on this island and spend your time enjoying the finer things in life. Wander through the winding streets of Mykonos Town and discover a world of boutiques, elegant restaurants and jewellery shops to peruse at your leisure. Vivid purple flowers add dashes of colour to the traditionally Greek white buildings. Head to Little Venice, where vibrant architecture provides a pleasing backdrop for a waterfront drink. For a taste of the island’s past, visit the traditional windmills that overlook the town.
As long as you like golden sands and warm turquoise water, you’ll find a beach for you in Mykonos. A journey along the coast will unearth everything from quiet and secluded coves to bustling beaches. Drive north from the town to Fokos to sink your feet into untouched sands, even in high season.
Mykonos’ nightlife is a major draw, but it’s not just beach parties on offer. Drift from laid-back bars to rustic tavernas or classy cocktail bars. Graze on meze with friends, freshly-caught seafood in traditional restaurants, or take the luxurious route with a wealth of upmarket restaurants.
