Mykonos is a veritable jewel in the crown of Greece’s numerous islands and resorts. The sunny climate, pale blue skies and the lapping of the waves make a perfect canvas for a fairy-tale wedding and reception. The beauty of this holiday hot-spot, while whitewashed buildings literally cascading to the blue Aegean the area remains relatively unchanged. Thus, authenticity exists that is, nowadays, often hard to find.
Whilst the charm of Mykonos and its people remains, today it is one of the most sought-after destinations in the world. Here, you’ll experience glitz and glamour rivalled only by Ibiza and St. Tropez and you’ll find Mykonos Town (aka Hora) awash with fashionistas, romantic couples and of course, a celebrity or two.
Beach loving holiday-makers will be spoiled for choice. From expansive beaches offering water-sports and cocktail bars to more tranquil coves, there’s a beach here for every taste. If you can tear yourself away from the ocean, the island is peppered with rustic villages, just waiting to be explored.
When the sun goes down, Mykonos really comes alive. Those wanting to party should head to ‘paradise’ or ‘super paradise’ where celebrations continue into the early hours. Meanwhile, those seeking a more relaxed evening amongst friends will be happier back at Mykonos Town. Here, you might opt for an evening of music and chatter at a traditional Greek taverna. Or, you may prefer fine dining at the likes of Nobu.
If you are seeking a destination with bags of style, this may be right up your street!
