Welcome to a sun-kissed island where hedonism meets Hellenism and both arrive to the party by mega yacht. Say hello to Mykonos, Greece’s glamorous beach playground of the famous, young, rich and beautiful. Like it’s Spanish cousin Ibiza, this beautiful island isn’t just dancing to dawn or shopping – it’s also steeped in history and culture. Picturesque villages with centuries’ old whitewashed architecture are yours to explore – if you manage to shake off that hangover in time – before the music starts again.

Explore Mykonos

Some European hubs have direct flights to the island but most visitors will have to transfer from Athens airport – around 40 minutes flight time away. Chauffeured cars or taxis are the easiest ways to get around the island. Scooters are widely available but a risky form of transport. Some resorts have their own helipads.

Climate & seasons

Peak party season is mid-June to mid-September, this is when all the beach clubs are open and the DJs spinning. May to mid-June and mid-September to October are cheaper and more comfortable heat-wise but some beach clubs and hotels may be closed.

Where to go

The exclusive beach enclaves of Psarou and Santa Marina are where the most discerning luxury travellers tend to stay. Both are on the island’s south coast close to iconic Mykonos town – which is well worth a wander. Jackie O’, Buddha Bar, Scorpios and SantAnna are the big names in the beach club scene.

What to do

Dance, drink, sleep, repeat. This may sound like a cliché line from a souvenir t-shirt but it’s what Mykonos is all about. Whether it’s partying at a renowned beach bar, on a private yacht or in your rented luxury villa it would be a crime to come to Mykonos and not dance 'til dawn. To help the daytime hours pass quicker, relax on pretty beaches, swim, shop in boutique stores, enjoy private boat cruises or eat at fabulous restaurants.
