Mykonos is probably the most famous Greek island and one of Europe/'s hippest vacation resorts. The jet set fell in love with this sun-kissed, windswept island in the 60’s. Today, it is still the ultimate refuge for discerning travelers, fashionistas, celebrities and anyone who wishes to party until sunrise.
A fabulous destination, Mykonos is a playground for the rich and famous, sparkling under the Aegean sun. The most cosmopolitan of the Greek islands, it offers a vibrant beach life with some of Greece/'s most famous beaches, a plethora of activities and water sports, wonderful views, a fabulous variety of great restaurants and a legendary party scene.
Mykonos, however, is not just about intense lifestyles. It is an island suitable for children, as well as adults, with most people staying at home by the pool or on a beach during the day and venturing out to the town/'s restaurants and nightclubs at night. Aficionados of Greek ancient history will be fascinated by the nearby sacred island of Delos, the birthplace of Apollo and Artemis, one of the most important archaeological sites in Greece. Sail away to secluded beaches nearby, or relax by the pool watching the sun set and you will find that Mykonos can offer one of the most relaxing holiday experiences.
How to get there
- By plane directly from major European cities
- From Athens either by domestic flight (40 min), or by boat (3 hours) or by helicopter (35min)
What we love the most
The absolute hotspot of the world/'s jetset, many may think fast-paced Mykonos is all about partying and socializing but trust us, there is also an unspoiled and quiet side of the island, with which you will fall in love with.
