Grown-up Greek glamour
Mykonos Town holidays take you to a sweeping golden bay on the east coast of Mykonos. Wander through the emerald hills, admiring the traditional windmills, before heading into the town. Here you’ll find narrow streets lined with little boutiques and art galleries as well as bars and restaurants.
When it comes to dining, Mykonos Town has some excellent options. Choose from lively traditional tavernas and elegant, upmarket choices before stopping off in a bar. The sunsets from the town are spectacular, with the chance to admire them on a sunset cruise or from one of the many restaurants in the town itself.
Mykonos Town is packed with little white cubicle houses with coloured doors and balconies full of potted plants, which form a maze with the tiny churches. The intentional twisting footpaths of the town tricked the marauding pirates of centuries ago, but now they are just good fun for visitors who want to explore.
If you’re looking to shop, Matoyianni Street is a good place to start, especially for those who love little boutiques and one-off pieces. Among the packed alleyways you’ll find niche boutiques selling the famous handcrafted Mykonos sandals, bespoke costume jewellery, plus a number of designer stores too.
After a long day in Matoyianni Street is over, Little Venice is the perfect place to have an evening meal, there are plenty of Bohemian restaurants and chic bars to unwind in. If you want to take a break from shopping you can hop on a small boat to Delos – just 20 minutes away this small island is packed with ancient ruins, where temples used to cover the island, along with theatres, and mansions.

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.
Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Greece.
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.
The official language of Greece is Greek. English is widely spoken, too, so getting by is easy.
