Mykonos lies just south east of mainland Greece and is the liveliest and most popular of the Cyclades Islands.
The island is famous for its exceptional number of sandy beaches and its lively and colourful clubbing scene. It also boasts one of the most stunning capitals throughout all of Greece, in the form of Mykonos Town, home to the island’s party scene. It’s packed with whitewashed buildings, stylish restaurants, trendy cocktail bars and breathtaking areas such as ‘Little Venice’.
While the capital may grab the island’s limelight, blissful and relaxing holidays can be had in smaller resorts such as Ornos. Lazy days can be spent on the local amazing beach, while a busy atmosphere can be found in Mykonos town, only kilometres away.
There are no shortages of beautiful beaches on Mykonos holidays and the island is known as one of the best places for scuba diving in the Aegean Sea. Trails in the beautiful countryside dotted with churches and windmills, can be explored by car, foot or horseback. Boat trips away can also be made, to the mysterious island of Delos or other surrounding islands like Santorini.
