The coolest island in Europe – word class shopping, fabulous dining, the best beach scene in the Mediterranean, even the supermarkets are a hip experience with DJs and funky lighting.
Every year sees a new restaurant or lounge opening that outdoes the previous ones, the food just gets better, the villas get bigger, Mykonos is on a roll.
Underpinning all this are some of the best sandy beaches in Greece- Aghios Sostis for simplicity, Ftelia for windsurfers, Panormos for elegant lounging, Psarou to see and be seen, Agh Yannis, Ornos and Kalo Livadi for families, Kalafati for sports, Elia and Paranga for sheltered swimming, Lia and Fokos for a wilder experience, Paradsie and Super Paradise for clubbing and youngsters.
Mykonos is also well organised for boat hire to get to the beach restaurants in style or explore the islets lying outside Mykonos, (weather permitting), visits to the amazing island of Delos with its beautiful temple, or day trips across to neighbouring Tinos or Paros.
Perhaps the most iconic of all Mykonos’s glories is the Chora, the old port with “Little Venice” on the waterfront and the famous windmills behind. The shopping in Chora is world class, with all the famous brands setting up shop in the village - Balenciaga, two Louis Vuittons, Dior among others, while NObu and Hakasan have also opened restaurants there.
Mykonos takes some organising though as in July and August it is extremely full and everything from cars to deckchairs need to be booked ahead, so our VIP concierge service is recommended.
