Destination Guide: Mykonos
Mykonos has attracted an eclectic crowd over the years, from bohemian backpackers to Jackie O, but the 17-mile by 10-mile island is well and truly gentrified now, and still as beautiful as ever.
Sandy beaches spill into turquoise waters, thatched windmills punctuate the horizon and hundreds of pretty whitewashed villas pebbledash the town down to the coastline. It’s the stuff postcards are – literally – made of.
Once, the main allure of Mykonos was to visit the ancient sites at the sacred isle of Delos nearby, and it’s certainly well worth a visit. However, Mykonos long ago took over as the destination of choice in this corner of the Aegean. You’ll want to hire a car to whizz about the island and really make the most of it. Mykonos has many of Greece’s very best beaches. Hop from the trendy Psarou beach where you can spot the beautiful people on parade, to the family-friendly Ornos, teaming with eateries, and many more besides.
In the perfectly preserved old town, wander from designer jewellery shop to artisan market stall to fabulous boutique, stopping for coffee, lunch and drinks at any of the chi-chi little tavernas, bars and cafes you pass. A spot of leisurely shopping gets no better than this. For a more cultural gad about town, head for the old capital of Ano Mera to soak up some ancient Mykonian culture in its beautiful chapel and market square festooned with bougainvilleas.
The are daily direct flights from London or you can fly into Athens and take the ferry from Pireas, the main port in Athens. The fast ferry takes 3 hours.
Best places to eat and drink in Mykonos
The old town will leave you spoiled for choice. Lose yourself in the rabbit warren of tiny cobbled streets and alleyways in the old town. There’s a plethora of family-run restaurants and tavernas that you’ll never tire of exploring.
You can’t go far wrong with Uno Con Carne in Mykonos town. Opened as a steakhouse a few years ago, this Mykonos staple is now an oyster bar, too. Fresh seafood and Black Angus beef, all set in an atmospheric former art deco open-air cinema – what’s not to like?
For pre-dinner drinks, try the fresh fruit cocktails at Scarpa in Little Venice. Or for something very upmarket but just a little different, visit Astra Bar on Tria Pigadia Street, designed by distinguished jeweller, Minas, and boasting a ceiling with 2,500 lights depicting the constellations visible in the Northern Hemisphere’s night sky. We did say ‘different’!
Best time to visit Mykonos
To see the island in full swing, visit in July or August but, be warned, it will be lively! We think the best time to go is either just before or just after the main tourist season, either in May or June when the air is still fresh, or in September as the bulk of the tourists leave, but the sea is still warm enough to swim in all day.
What we love about Mykonos
Spending the day at Agios Sostis, a simply stunning beach in the north west of the island. Paddle in the clear waters and explore the tiny chapel, then eat barbecued seafood in local institution, Kiki’s restaurant, while watching the sun set.
