There’s the scent of lemons, the taste of Masitha liqueur and sorbet, that wild Meltemi northern wind and those iconic sunsets turning the sky every delicious shade imaginable – think purples, pinks and reds. Filled with sumptuous hotels, those famous windmills and a white-washed network of cobblestoned streets, Mykonos holidays are a perfect Instagram picture brought to life. Cycladic island architecture is as white as the linens locals wear and as cobalt as the sea. Sugar cube shaped buildings and fairytale blue domed churches sit between bougainvillea and fig trees, and in no time at all you’ll be perched in a pretty garden dining on fresh red snapper.
Superyachts dock at Psarou Beach, driftwood bars have you mooching over daytime martinis and glossy clubs propped up by world class DJ’s dish out Cristal by night turning the island into a glittering party mecca. The smell of leather and candles drifts through a maze of exquisite boutiques staying open long after dusk – head to capital Chora for the crème de la crème – and in iconic restaurants bathed in rose gold light or tucked inside caves hanging over the sea are award winning chefs, gourmet menus and haute-couture-clad staff.
You’ll meet the island’s famous pink pelicans, sail over to ancient ruins on Delos and visit almost impossibly tiny churches. But mostly, you’ll find that holidays to Mykonos are all about an agenda of how easily obtainable the beautiful life is; the call of white sands and turquoise seas, super-hot restaurant reservations, movies under the stars and utopian hotels where pools are studded with sparkling lights.
