Compact and bijou, the smallest of the Cyclades group of islands has a delightfully cosmopolitan feel and a hedonistic vibe. A relatively low lying island, it has its pick of golden sandy beaches, houses like white sugar cubes and a cluster of iconic 16th Century windmills dominating the tip of the island.
Theepitome of style, Mykonos Town sports a vibrant harbour where small traditional fishing boats float beside luxury yachts and the labyrinth of backstreets yields a selection of sophisticated places to eat and drink and upmarket clothing boutiques.
Live the dream...
Enter the realm of artists and dreamers in the Little Venice quarter, where you can dine late into the evening at wonderful sea view restaurants and pore over a magnificent sunset.
For the best swimming beach, head for sparkling Ornos Bay where the sands gently slope into shallow, calm waters in a sheltered bay. Mykonos doesn’t really do deserted, but the pretty sandy beaches of Elia and Agios Stefanos have plenty of facilities for watersports, sunbathing and a choice of charming little tavernas.
The nearby island of Delos with its sacred temples and shrine is a site of major archaeological significance guarded by the stylised statues of roaring lions which are truly astonishing to behold.
