With sugar cube houses stacked along the coastline and the beautiful blue sea below, it's easy to see why Mykonos is one of the most photographed destinations in Greece. Known for sun holidays and excellent nightlife, there's still plenty of sightseeing in this stunning location.
This well-kept ruin is known as the birthplace of Apollo, god of music and truth. In summer, arrive early for tours around the site and to see the lion statues of Mykonos.
There are plenty of cafes and restaurants here, so grab a table towards the end of the day to enjoy an amazing sunset. Look out for the Mykonos pelicans - an added attraction!
This pretty winding street is the perfect shady place to pick up designer clothing and jewelry, as well as postcards, trinkets and souvenirs of your time in Mykonos.
This Instagram-friendly Greek Orthodox church is typically unassuming, simple and painted bright white, with a domed roof. One of the best and most pretty buildings to see in Mykonos.
High on the cliffs of Mykonos is this historic building, now a hotel and event venue. Here, you can enjoy views right across the bay, or take a yoga class at sunset.
You'll pay €20 per day for two sun beds and a parasol on this popular beach with crystal clear waters. Eat at the great restaurant, or bring lunch with you to save a few Euros.

Mykonos, Greece, has been popular with the LGBT community of the world for generations. The town offers gay bars, hotels and even gay beaches. Follow the rainbow flag to the right side of Elia beach, or visit Agrari beach, which is 'clothing optional'.
The beauty of visiting the Greek islands is the ease at which you can jump between them, taking in the different sights. Catch a ferry from Mykonos to Naxos, Paros, Ios or Santorini to change up your holiday. Many of these destinations can also be reached with a day trip.
Mykonos is a quiet town, but there's plenty to do at night. Local laws on noise pollution are strict, which means you can't follow the music to find a great spot -- you need to know where you're going. Scandinavian Disco is a popular club and meeting point, but be aware, Europeans start to party late, so many won't get busy until after midnight.

What people are saying about Mykonos
They were the perfect hosts, nothing was too much trouble. The drinks were free flowing and the food was fabulous (even for a veggie). The scenery, sea, facilities and general atmosphere were all amazing. I cannot rate this experience high enough. Loved it! Thank you.
The guided tour of Delos was the best part of this tour. It was great to have all of the worry taken care of as we were taken right to the island and set up with a great tour guide. Also, the crew was fantastic as they were very friendly and professional the whole time. I really felt taken care of by this company. I also wanted to say that the lunch was great and we got all of the soft drinks and wine we wanted on this tour which was a plus. The only down side for me was that we spent too much time at Rhenia and not enough (it felt like) on Delos. However, I would recommend this tour to everyone.
Loved the tour. So fascinating. We learned so much, could never have had the satisfaction we had if we tried to do it ourselves. I highly recommend getting a guide, the extra insight you get is worth it.
This tour was great. Our guide was very informative and I really learnt a lot about the history of Mykonos. The highlight was visiting the little village and farm.
Anastasia was wonderful. Anna’s garden refreshments were fresh and delicious. Wonderful way to spend the day!
