The chances are, if you're on social media, you've seen the stunning snaps of anyone who's ever been to Mykonos - their views are not ones you forget in a hurry! However, if you look beyond the array of stunning buildings and icing-sugar beaches, you'll find ample cultural and archaeological marvels to discover.
You could easily whittle away your days simply shopping, wandering and sunbathing - but there's so much more to see and do in Mykonos! You'll likely stumble upon some of the many churches scattered across the island, but make a point of visiting Panagia Paraportiani - undoubtedly the most photographed and artistically intriguing.
Looking for something to accompany that afternoon cocktail? Couple your drink with a sunset view of the iconic Kato Mili windmills, looming tall above Little Venice. Or, for a more traditional holiday activity, arrange an evening yacht cruise around the island's southern coast.
Speaking of sailing, we'd suggest taking a day trip to the nearby island of Delos - not only is it said to be the birthplace of Apollo and Artemis, the twin Greek gods, but it's also peppered with old public squares and ampitheatres. Cameras at the ready! And if you want to extend your stay even further, consider taking the ferry to Santorini - just 2-3 hours away!
It's not surprising that you can find a lot of seafood on restaurant menus across Mykonos - islanders have ample access to fresh produce. However, pies make a perhaps more unexpected appearance, with kremidopita onion pie proving popular. Don't miss a slice of sweet melopita honey pie, which is filled with tirovolia cheese.
And if you can't get enough of local cheeses, you'll love Mykonos kopanisti- a thick, creamy variety best enjoyed spread across bread. It's also served solo as an appetiser and goes great with a glass of Greek wine.
If you prefer sweet to savoury, lazarakia is your treat to try. These handmade biscuits are meant to resemble Lazarus, and get sprinkled with sugar and raisins. Almond cookies flavoured with rose or orange are also found in bakeries across the island.
