Luxury Travel: A Guide to Mykonos

 

The Greek Island of Mykonos is a whitewashed paradise situated in the Cyclades group in the Aegean Sea. In the late 1950s it became a bohemian mecca and is now one of the glitziest, most renowned tourist destinations in the country.

The Cyclades are most enjoyable in late spring – when the landscape is still green, the sea has warmed up to feasible swimming temperatures, but the crowds have yet to descend.

Those who spend a little time here will discover the quiet charm of the Cycladic maze of Hora, the pleasure of travelling the backcountry roads and a dining scene to rival any Greek island. And of course, if it’s beach life you’re after, you won’t be disappointed.  The island boasts 25 beaches, from secluded coves lapped at by cerulean waters, or a wide stretch of sugar-white sand covered with sunworshippers. Whilst, Platys Gialos and Kalafatis are particularly good for water sports, and on the north coast, Panormos and Agios Sostis receive a fraction of visitors to southern beaches and have naturist-friendly sections.

What To Do

If you’re PADI certified, then diving is a must do activity on on Mykonos, with plenty of wrecks, caves and walls to explore for both beginners and advanced divers.

Greece is steeped in history, and Mykonos represents the gateway to the sacred island of Delos, the mythical birthplace of Apollo and Aphrodite. It’s a Unesco World Heritage site and one of the most important and well-preserved archaeological sites in Greece.

The sunsets are truly amazing, so if you’re after a spot to watch the greatest show on earth, head to the bars of Little Venice on Hora.

And once the sun has gone down, there’s plenty of hustle and bustle, as during the summer months, this island never sleeps.The beach clubs such as Cavo Paradiso (an old client of mine) hosts local and international DJs on a nightly basis. if you’re looking

Where To Stay

Mykonos has a wealth of accommodation options from boutique hotels, party hostels and luxury villas. We’d recommend rounding up a group of friends and checking out these Luxury Villas in Mykonos by Kinglike. For example Villa Alpha sleeps 18, in 9 bedrooms, and with an infinity pool overlooking the bay, it’s the perfect place to enjoy a sunset cocktail or poolside yoga whilst the sun comes up. If panoramic views are you’re thing, then look no further.

Where To Eat

Mykonos has a terrific dining scene, with an extremely dense concentrations of restaurants in Hora, which range from upmarket al fresco dining to traditional Greek tavernas, and it’s great for vegetarians. Try Reeza Restaurant at Rocabella Mykonos in Agios Stefanos for excellent Mediterranean cuisine and for lunch take a trip to Mykonos Town and try the delicious baguettes at Popolo (also great for veggies).
