This glamorous Greek island is one of the group known as the Cyclades, which also includes Santorini, Naxos and Ios. Holidays to Mykonos promise sandy beaches, whitewashed villages and cosmopolitan nightlife. It’s perfect for lazy days on the golden beaches and swimming in the Aegean Sea, before heading to a waterfront restaurant for a laid-back dinner. And if you’re not ready to call it a night after that, you can always head for a cocktail or two, or perhaps a late-night club by the beach. Mykonos holidays are ideal whether you’re here with the kids, are having a group break with friends, or want to fire up the romance with a special partner.
If you’re going to Mykonos for the sun, sand and sea, then you won’t be disappointed. The summer months are drenched in golden Mediterranean sunshine, blowing the UK’s unpredictable weather out of the water. Make the most of the warm temperatures at a range of beaches, from party hotspots to relaxing little coves where you can have a peaceful day with your little ones. Make sandcastles and paddle in the crystal clear sea to your heart’s content as you create memories to last a lifetime.
