Mykonos

Mykonos holidays

Magical Mykonos is so much more than a hub for party lovers – it’s a glimmering Grecian gem just waiting to be explored. Whitewashed and wonderfully-chic, this idyllic isle has more charm than you can shake a guide book at and enough ancient history to satisfy even the most budding of history buffs. But most of all, it’s a honeypot for the well-heeled, with oodles of swanky restaurants, glamorous beach clubs and sleek bars.

Captivating colours

As well as keeping things cool, the chalky white buildings peppered throughout the island also serve another handy purpose – they make all the surrounding colours look even more vibrant! From cascading pink bougainvillea to bright blue doorways, the turquoise sea to the cobalt sky, Mykonos’ kaleidoscopic colour scheme is stunning and then some. 

300 days of sunshine

With more than 300 days of sunshine a year, chances are that you’re destined for some sizzling weather on a holiday to Mykonos. In fact, temperatures average at 25°C in the height of summer! As well as divine days at the beaches ringing the island, this means that you’re in the running for some spellbinding sunsets too.

Little Venice

Prepare to be wowed by the hues of this Narnia-like neighbourhood in Mykonos Town. Elegant, chic and oh-so romantic, this iconic little spot is known for its windmill backdrop and 18th century buildings with their colourful balconies that overhang the water. Once the homes of fisherman, today you’ll find cool cafés and swoon-worthy shops.

Agios Ioannis

Take your seat for spectacular sunsets. Agios Ioannis’ placement on the south-west coast means you can look forward to the apricot sun sinking into the sea every evening.
