Mykonos is the great glamour island of Greece and flaunts its sizzling St-Tropez meets Ibiza style and party reputation.
Mykonos Town (Hora), the island’s well preserved port and capital, is a traditional white-washed Cycladic maze, deligthing in its cubist charms and its chichi cafe – bar – boutique scene.
In the heart of the waterfront Little Venice Quarter, tiny flower-bedecked churches jostle with glassy boutiques, and there’s a cascade of bougainvillea around every corner.
It is time to choose a beach, spread your towel and settle for the day. And spend the late afternoon and night exploring the bars and shops of Little Venice in Hora.

The largest island of the Cyclades is Naxos, however the most populated one is Syros. Both Mykonos and Santorini are also part of the Cyclades
