Mykonos Holidays - Greece
With high-end restaurants, designer boutiques and plenty of chic cocktail bars, Mykonos vies for the title of Greece's most glamorous and cosmopolitan island. It's not lost its traditional good looks, though - whitewashed sugar-cube houses and churches topped with blue domes are still the norm, and dotted around the island are a handful of 16th-century windmills.
Mykonos Town is the island's hub, with cafes, shops and cocktail bars lining its maze-like streets. The waterfront Little Venice area is the go-to place at sunset. Bars and restaurants set up their tables inches from the water, with front-row views for sundown.
Things to do in Mykonos
Catch the boat across to Delos
This little island - supposedly the birthplace of the god Apollo - is a short hop by boat from Mykonos. It was once a religious sanctuary and a bustling trading port, and the remains of its centuries-old civilisations are now a UNESCO-protected area.
Take a look inside Boni Mill
Boni Mill is one of the best-preserved windmills on the island, and is also part of the folklore museum. The interior still houses the original machinery used to crush crops and produce flour - if you're here for the harvest festival (usually the second Sunday in September), you can have a go at treading grapes on the old wine press.
Potter around the Aegean Maritime Museum
This little museum celebrates all things maritime. Inside, you'll find intricate models of ancient ships, collections of old coins and bells, and traditional seafaring instruments, while out in the garden there's a lighthouse lantern and a selection of marble gravestones dedicated to sailors lost at sea.
Church of Panagia Paraportiani
This whitewashed complex is Mykonos' number-one attraction. Four churches are combined into one building, with the curvy dome of the fifth chapel sitting up on the first storey. You'll find it a few minutes' walk from the centre of Mykonos Town.
