POSSIBLY the most glamorous of the Greek Islands, Mykonos has become the glitzy ‘go-to’ resort for stylish sun seekers.
The island has seen its fair share of famous faces over the years and still attracts the beautiful people with its boutique hotels, designer shops and vibrant nightlife. If you’re not familiar with Mykonos, you may remember it as the gorgeous setting for the classic movie, Shirley Valentine, which starred Pauline Collins and Tom Conti.
This island will capture your heart with its beauty and colour and whereby you might not have a holiday romance like our Shirley but you’re certain to fall in love with the friendly locals who are immensely proud of their island and their heritage.
Besides the weather and the pretty scenery, there’s lots of things to see and do to make your trip much more than a two week beach bonanza, although you’d be forgiven for pitching up on the golden sands and staying there.
Find your ideal holiday!
Things To Do On Mykonos
One of the liveliest spots on the island, boasting azure blue waters and spotless sands where you can join in the fun of the late afternoon entertainment or simply zone out and soak up the sun.
Set sail from Mykonos and follow in the footsteps of 1000s of pilgirms who flock here to the island’s church. Inside the church, there’s an icon of Mary said to have miraculous healing powers.
Drop by the beautiful, romantic neighbourhood of Little Venice and admire the elegent old buildings by the edge of the sea.
An idyllic traditional Greek town filled with dazzling white architecture and bright blue doors in winding alleyways and flower filled lanes.
