Fine sands, clear waters, plenty of sunbeds for hire – the beaches here are the stuff of dreams. Head to popular Platys Gialos to experience the aquamarine sea. Want to tick off all the top spots? Psarou is tipped as the hippest of the bunch, so get there sharpish to claim a prime patch.
A bit of everything
Mykonos Town is the well-preserved capital and the island’s postcard inspiration. Potter around its whitewashed buildings, then discover Little Venice and the striking iconic windmills. Museums are dotted between art galleries, while Matoyianni Street is the best bet for boutiques. Anyone up for sampling kopanistí? It’s the local peppered soft cheese.
Hit the most iconic bars and clubs on the island and you might end up spying celebs. Mykonos has hosted everyone from fashion designers to supermodels, big-name DJs to actors. If champagne beach parties aren’t your bag, how about just settling into a swanky restaurant for the evening?
