Mykonos Holidays

Mykonos
Overview

Mykonos is where Greece gets seriously glamorous. This supreme holiday destination might be a hot spot for celebs, but it's just as fit for families, couples and solo travellers looking to bask in ultimate style. Crowned for being the biggest party island in Greece, Mykonos holidays ooze class, from jet-set lovers mooring luxury yachts in the pretty port to high-end terrace bars where you can sip on a glass of fizz. But there's plenty more to this cosmopolitan island than you think.

 

Holidays in Mykonos also offer miles of dazzling beaches, great hotels and pretty villages to visit. Walk along the cobbled streets of Chora, watch the sun set from Little Venice or day trip to Delos for a touch of UNESCO-style culture. Mykonos is best-known for its eclectic nightlife – both in the town and at the beaches. Head to buzzing Cavo Paradiso on the famous Paradise Beach for a spectacular party setting by the sea or Babylon for its fabulous gay scene.

 

Mykonos is best visited during the months of September and October. The weather here allows a year-round inflow of tourists except for these two months when the water becomes warm and the hotel tariffs go down. Mykonos is easily accessible as the town has got an airport in its name, the Mykonos International Airport is located 4km from the town. By roads too, Mykonos town is well connected from the other major parts of the province. With its St Tropez-meets-Ibiza style, Mykonos holidays are not to be missed.

Spot Pelicans at the Harbour

Spot Pelicans at the Harbour


Consider yourself lucky if you spot a pelican - or three! - near a bar at the harbour. Mykonos’ first feathered mascot emerged 40 years ago when one was rescued half-dead by a fisherman. The bird's death in 1986 prompted Jackie Kennedy-Onassis to donate another, Irene. She was joined by Petros who can still be spotted solo or in a group on the island. The pelicans are real celebrities on the waterfront and have been the official mascots of Mykonos for years.
