With over 2000 islands scattered around its coastline, Greece is spoilt for choice when it comes to coastal getaways. Mykonos is a great all-rounder, combining many of the attractions found on other islands with world class hotels and nightlife.

Mykonos has some incredible beaches – where else can you find Paradise beach next to Super Paradise beach? Many of the beaches are fringed by high end bars and clubs, perfect for people watching over sundowner cocktails. If you tire of sunbathing, Mykonos’ nickname is the “Island of the Winds”. Try out kitesurfing, windsurfing and sailing on the consistent Aegean breezes that cross the Cyclades.

For a more cultural experience, Mykonos has some fantastic restaurants, with spectacularly fresh fish and delicious local wines. If you are a serious foodie, book on to a cookery course to learn how to recreate your favourite dishes at home. Another cultural highlight is the nearby island of Delos. Here you’ll find the remains of a temple to Apollo, who was supposedly born on the island, as well as several other well-preserved ancient structures that are very historically important.
