Mykonos in Greece oozes glitz and glamour with celebrities that can be found flocking here during the summer months
(Travel) Hailed as one of the best Greek islands , the hotspot offers everything you could want for an unforgettable break; beautiful beaches, a brilliant nightlife, charming towns and a mouthwatering foodie scene.
There are the picturesque streets to explore with their whitewashed buildings, scenic views and historic spots, for those who don't want to lounge poolside all day.
If you want to be in the heart of the action then Mykonos Town needs to be on your radar. It's here where you'll find the bulk of bars, restaurants and nightclubs if you plan to try out the island's world-famous nightlife, while the Old Port and Little Venice are great for pretty views and leisurely strolls. For a dose of culture, the art galleries and Archaeological Museum of Mykonos never disappoint.
If you plan to spend most of your holiday poolside but want to go and see at least one landmark, make it the Mykonos Windmills. It won't be too difficult as the windmills can supposedly be seen from every point in Mykonos Town. Nowadays they're no longer in use but they make for quite a pretty photo backdrop.
Mykonos is home to some beautiful churches, but the Paraportiani Orthodox Church never fails to wow tourists. Located in the town of Chora, the whitewashed church actually consists of five separate churches and is worth adding to the itinerary if you're planning to explore some of the island on foot.
Matogianni Street is where you need to head if you're planning to indulge in some retail therapy or looking to pick up some souvenirs. The whitewashed buildings that line the cobbled pavements offer everything from handmade crafts, clothes, food and trinkets, not to mention there are heaps of restaurants to be found if you want to sample some of that world-famous Greek cuisine.
Kalafatis Beach is probably one of the most well known with its sandy shores, turquoise waters and heaps of facilities from sunbeds to restaurants a short walk away. Meanwhile Ornos Beach is ideal for families, with umbrellas and loungers as well as bars, restaurants and other facilities so you don't have to venture too far.
Mykonos is famed for its vibrant nightlife; think swanky clubs, glamorous bars, bustling restaurants and even daytime boat parties. The summer months is where you'll find it all really comes to life, and you can often spot famous faces flocking here too. Mykonos Town is where you'll find the bulk of the action, but picturesque Paradise Beach is also renowned for its bars and clubs.
