Set in the heart of the South Agean Sea, this Cyclade island is named in honour of Apollo’s son Mykons and offers a quaint setting, stunning views, fabulous beaches and cutting edge nightlife. The capital city Hora is a labyrinth of cobbled streets surrounding the charmingly colourful and historic port where small fishing boats can be found nestled with luxurious super yachts!

On the waterfront you will find designer shops and fashionable restaurants, while museums and art galleries await your perusal in ‘Little Venice’. Of course Mykonos also offers boundless amounts of coast for a spot of stylish beach time too. This island has a fantastic energy about it where you can find DJ’s playing live in supermarkets and on buzzing beaches, with cocktail parties that carry on way past bedtime. Mykonos offers endless opportunities for good times, be they fully charged or deliciously mellow.
