Mykonos is the perfect destination for those looking to add a touch of glamour to their Greek Island getaway. It's where the European elite play. With its sandy beaches, whitewashed villages, and a vibrant, cosmopolitan party scene, this island is the Greek answer to St-Tropez. Jackie Onassis was one of the first A-list visitors in the Sixties, and the list of celebrity visitors continues to grow today with the likes of P-Diddy in the Noughties. But don't worry, the jet-setters happily share the island with the backpacking crowd. Mykonos is abundant in resources, from the watersports and cocktail bars at Paradise and Super Paradise, to the more secluded coves at Elia and Ornos. For a happy medium, Plati Yialos beach has a mix of hotels, family-friendly bars, and restaurants. When the sun goes down, Paradise and Super Paradise are the place to be for nightlife, while Mykonos Town offers a more relaxed atmosphere with its Greek fusion and vegetarian restaurants. For a special treat, book a table at the Nobu restaurant, Matsuhisa, to sample cutting-edge dishes like tartar with caviar and black cod miso.

Mykonos has some of the best beaches, most romantic places for couples, and the greatest parties in the Greek Islands. Once on the island, you will find award-winning restaurants and fun adventures. Mykonos Town is generally the best place to stay on the island; however, if you’re not staying there, my recommendation would be to scope out some of the beach areas with good hotels!...
