Affordable one-way flights to Mykonos

Mykonos

The island of Mykonos is one of Greece’s finest treasures. Nestled into the brilliant blue of the Aegean Sea, this gorgeous island is home to just over 10,000 people but welcomes many more visitors each year flocking for its pristine beaches, quaint architecture, lively nightlife and fascinating historical sites. Mykonos Town (locally known as Chora) is the largest on the island and offers a thriving tourist centre complete with pretty cobbled streets, tiny shops, whitewashed villas, and enough bars and restaurants to suit any appetite. Try a gyro - a type of Mediterranean kebab, and one of Greece’s favourite snacks, or sit down for some fine dining in Little Venice with its ancient and colourful houses hanging over the harbour.

The view from Mykonos town and Little Venice looks over the iconic 16th century windmills, which make for a postcard-perfect photo moment. Keep your eye out for Petros the Pelican, the island’s mascot, for another great holiday snap moment. If history is your bag, you’re in the right place as Mykonos is one of Greece’s most important archaeological sites, with the island of Delos home to the spectacular ruins of the mythological birthplace of Apollo, the Greek god of the moon. However, if you want your trip to Mykonos to be a little more wet and wild, head to Mykonos Town for trendy bars and clubs, or hit the beach parties on the south side of the island. There’s a thriving LGBT community and a string of nudist beaches too – everyone is welcome in beautiful Mykonos.
