Why go to Mykonos

Let lazy beach days melt into neon nights in Mykonos, an island of golden sands, legendary nightlife, and picture-perfect Greek villages.

Part of the sun-kissed Cyclades, Mykonos is one of Greece’s most glamorous islands. Popular spots such as Paradise Beach and Elia Beach draw sun-worshippers to paddle in the crystalline Aegean Sea, and embark on watersports adventures like wakeboarding and water-skiing.

Back in Mykonos Town, white-and-blue houses, winding lanes and the striking Paraportiani Church create a picturesque backdrop for souvenir shopping and browsing boutiques. The charming Little Venice neighbourhood has numerous tavernas and bars overlooking the calm Aegean Sea – pull up a chair and sip a glass of retsina while the sun sets.
