Catch a boat from Ornos harbour to the mythical isle of Delos. This enchanting UNESCO World Heritage Site is a fairytale blend of hilltop temples, otherworldly rock formations and rolling green countryside, and it’s said to be the birthplace of Apollo and Artemis. It might only be 5sqkm, but this tiny island holds a big place in the heart of Greek history.
Swing by the capital
Ornos pops you just 4km from the island’s capital city, Mykonos Town and, trust us, it’s an absolute must-visit. Bumble along the mosaic-paved streets, making pit stops in scallop-canopy cafés. This tri-coloured town is blue, white and magenta all over – gaze up at the bougainvillea for a sight to delight.
After dark delights
Whether you’re after a prime plot for sunset dining or a wine spot where you can dance the night away, your wish is Mykonos’ command. The fine dining scene is big business round these parts, with restaurants dishing up imaginative plates in incredible settings. Foodies, Mykonos is one for the ‘yes pile’.
