It might be best known for its thriving club scene and summer parties, but there’s more to Mykonos than meets the eye. Glamourous and cosmopolitan in parts, true Greece still endures, with the fishing boats bobbing in the island’s harbours, perfect sands beckoning beach bums and the ancient windmills that dot the hilltops here proving attractive to all.
Enjoying the perfect spot in warm Aegean waters, this is a sun-kissed paradise, its whitewashed villages shining bright and its climate ideal for those keen to top up their tans. Young people might flock here for the nightclubs, but head off the beaten track a little and peace and quiet can be found.
Look out for Little Venice, the fishing houses that line the waterfront, their balconies hanging over the sea below and a sight to savour. Be it the music or the museums, there are attractions to suit all tastes here and, with the sun always beating down, life doesn’t get much better.
