Luxury Mykonos Holidays

Waterside bars, sea-view windmills and a cosmopolitan air

Mykonos

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 restaurants, 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 just inches from the water, with front-row views for sundown.

Head out of Mykonos Town and you’ll find sandy bays carved out of the coastline. Around the sheltered south coast, they come with chic beach clubs and trendy restaurants on the side. On the breezy north coast, things tend to be a bit more rugged.

Mykonos has plenty of stylish beach clubs to while away an afternoon at - Nammos Beach Bar on Psarou Beach is one of my favourites.

I'd highly recommend spending a morning or afternoon over on the island of Delos - it gives you a fascinating insight into the history of the area.

Destinations in Mykonos
Agios Ioannis
Agios Ioannis is a resort village that sets up shop on one of the best beaches on Mykonos. Expect soft golden sands and hills dusted with designer hotels.
Agios Stefanos
Agios Stefanos curves itself around a beach next to the bustling harbour, ferry dock and cruise ship terminal of Tourlos. Mykonos Town is only a 10-minute drive south, too.
Aleomandra
The exclusive resort of Aleomandra perches on the south-western tip of Mykonos, where five-star hotels and villas tuck themselves around the private coves and beaches of the rugged peninsula.
 
Mykonos Town
Mykonos Town – AKA Chora – is the island capital. It’s also where some of Greece’s most famous vistas lie, including the blue and white old town, the waterfront houses of Little Venice, and the windmill watchtowers.
 
Psarou
Drive 10 minutes south of Mykonos Town and you’ll come across Psarou – a seaside resort with a honey-hued beach that’s something of a celebrity hideout.

Flight Information

The flight to Mykonos is around 3 hours 45 minutes from the UK. 

When to go

Spring and autumn are ideal for sightseers in Mykonos, with daily sunshine and temperatures staying around the early 20s. For the best beach weather, however, expect the mercury to soar past 30°C throughout July and August, although Mykonos’ location means you get some tempering winds to take the edge off the heat. 

Visa Information

Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Greece. 

Tipping

In Greece, a service charge will be included in the bill at restaurants and bars. Much like the UK, an additional tip is not required, although is appreciated for particularly good service. It is common to round off the amount when paying cash, particularly with wait staff and taxi drivers. 

Introduction to languages

The official language of Greece is Greek.  English is widely spoken, too, so getting by is easy.
