With sandy beaches, whitewashed villages and a vibrant, cosmopolitan party scene, Mykonos adds a touch of glamour to the Greek Islands.
Greece’s designer island
With boutique hotels, luxury villas and label-laden shops, Mykonos is Greece’s answer to St-Tropez. Its list of A-list visitors starts with Jackie Onassis in the Sixties and moves on to P-Diddy in the Noughties. But the LA faithful happily share their space with the island-hopping backpacking crowd.
The full range of beaches
Resources certainly aren’t short on Mykonos. For starters, the island is belted with beaches. While the jet-set can’t get enough of the watersports and cocktail bars at Paradise and Super Paradise, those after something a bit quieter head to the coves at Elia and Ornos. There are plenty of sunloungers on both beaches, plus a collection of tavernas at each. Plati Yialos, meanwhile, provides a happy medium. This lively stretch of sand is back by hotels and family-friendly bars and restaurants.
The after-dark scene
Mykonos has its fair share of nightlife. When the sun goes down, Paradise and Super Paradise are the most popular spots. If it’s a relaxed meal you want, Mykonos Town is the place to go. The restaurants here serve everything from Greek fusion food to bespoke vegetarian meals. For a real treat, book yourself a table at the Nobu restaurant, Matsuhisa, to sample cutting-edge dishes, like tartar with caviar and black cod miso.
