Luxury Mykonos Town Holidays

Grown-up Greek glamour

Mykonos Town

The most chic of Greek towns, Mykonos’ island capital is its stand-out destination. Gleaming white buildings, boutiques and galleries tumble down the hillside towards a pretty harbour, where dolphin-spotting cruise ships bob beside fishing boats.

Home to several must-see museums (the archaeological museum in particular), holidays in Mykonos Town are all about wandering its labyrinth of streets, popping into Greek tavernas and soaking up the sunshine on the seafront. Quaint corners like Little Venice (so-called for the houses that hang over the water’s edge) are a treasure trove of art and eateries.

We recommend picking up a few souvenirs while you’re at it – shoppers’ paradise Matayianni Street is bursting with independent little shops selling leather goods, jewellery and local wares.

The surrounding area is steeped in Greek myth; if you’re interested in exploring, pay a visit to Delos, a UNESCO-listed island said to be the mythical birthplace of twin gods Apollo and Artemis.

Enjoy the beautiful sunset across the sea in Little Venice. Perch on a chair and people watch, sipping on your cocktail at one of the cosy cocktail bars (my favourite is Semeli).

Bill and Coo Suites

Mykonos, Mykonos Town
Flight Information

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

Transfer Time

Transfer time from Mykonos airport to Mykonos Town is approximately 10 minutes. 

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.
