The beaches of Mykonos are the place to see and be seen. The summer crowd that descend on this island are a well-heeled variety, with a few celebrities thrown into the mix as well. The major draw is the lovely sand that invites sunbathers to relax under the blue skies and paddle in the crystal sea.
Mykonos holidays are famous for its nightlife, and you'll be able to dance until dawn at many of the clubs if you wish to. Of course, for a lower-key evening, there are still good options and a range of international choices for dining. Head to Mykonos Town to dine on seafood and savour a leisurely meal.
For a more active holiday, Mykonos doesn’t disappoint. Hire bikes from the seafront at Agios Stefanos and cycle up the hill to the church to enjoy tranquil views to the distant islands of Syros and Tinos. Naturally, there are also plenty of watersports you can try out. If you fancy your hand at windsurfing, make your way to Ftelia Beach, which is renowned for its windsurfing. Jump on jet skis at Kalafatis Beach and zip across the waters, or do some easy-going underwater exploration with some snorkelling.
To really immerse yourself in the history of this region, take a short boat trip to the island of Delos, dubbed ‘Island of the Gods’ thanks to its claim to fame as the birthplace of Apollo and Artemis. Delos was once a thriving port and political centre. Today, it enjoys status as a tourist draw since people come to marvel at its ancient history, and while you're on the island you can visit the Archaeological Museum of Delos, which displays items from excavations there.
