Mykonos

Mykonos holidays

Welcome to the ultimate in luxurious Greek chic – an island so stylish it's the stuff of legends. Beach club brunches, swanky champagne lunches and sunset cocktails mean Mykonos is always ready to revel in the good life. No wonder it’s a hit with A-listers too. But it can do low-key, with candlelit seafood suppers, local adventures and history hunting also on the menu. Whitewashed Mykonos Town takes centre stage in this glam-as-you-like gem, where designer shops aren’t in short supply, but you’ll find plenty of dinky little villages oozing tradition and authentic tavernas if you know where to look. As for the beaches, do as the jet set do and party on Super Paradise Beach or soak up the sun on the north coast’s quieter coves.
