What can you say about Mykonos in a few lines? The most iconic Greek island, and a first class destination itself, it remains a timeless symbol of cosmopolitan holidays – from the golden allure of the 60s jet set to the present. Mykonos is a unique combination of every element of the perfect holidays recipe. A lively Chora with traditional architecture and comopolitan feeling, some of the best sandy beaches in the Mediterranean, the archetypal Cycladic landscape, very good food in restaurants ranging from trendy spots with gourmet and fusion cuisine to traditional tavernas in the village of Ano Mera, nice bars and after clubs with world class djs, all-day beach fun, designer and eclectic shopping, and last but not least archaelogical interest since it is next to Dilos, the unique archaeological site in the homonumous deserted island.
From the cosmopolitan Psarou beach with the cosy sunbeds (reservations are advisable), coctails and finger food, where the N’ammos is the perfect hangout, and this summer more openings are coming, to the relaxing beaches without sunbeds like Agios Sostis or Fokos, Mykonos shores are full of wonderful surpises. Even in the most remote beachesa like Lia, you can find a nice spot like Liasti with creative greek cuisine with fresh home-grown local products in a bohemian chic setting. Before heading for the beach try the famous kaseropita (cheese pie) from the bakery at Ano Mera. At Dinner time there are both cosmopolitan options like Matsuhisha at Belvedere Hotel/ Chora with the world famous Nobu japanese specialities, to funky newcomers.
What makes Mykonos special is than you can choose what kind of holidays you want or combine different styles. You can relax at your luxury villa and gather your friends for a fancy dinner by an award-winning chef, or enjoy the famous nightlife of the island. You can turn your villa into a yoga retreat with a special de-tox menu and special treatment or organise a boho-chic beach party. You can rent a boat or yacht and explore each day another beach in Mykonos or the nearby islands – the chef can prepare you a delicious lunch on board or a beach picnic.
This is the island of the infinite choices. But, like all trendy destinations, Mykonos is better enjoyed with the right insider know-how, which we can definitely provide to our guests knowing the island firsthand.
