Cosmopolitan Mykonos is renowned for its lively nightlife that provides endless excitement after dark and beautiful beaches for soaking up the sunshine during the day. A place to see and be seen, it’s also ideal for celebrity spotting and shopping, with winding streets lined with art galleries and interesting shops. The isle offers plenty of beauty to gaze at and capture on films, like iconic Cycladic buildings with whitewashed windmills that overlook Mykonos Town and magical sunsets from places like Little Venice and Agios Iannis beach.
Mykonos is renowned for its five-star hotels and decadent parties, attracting superyachts and supermodels with opportunities to dance from dusk ‘til dawn. Sip tropical cocktails under the Aegean sun at more than 30 beaches, with those on the south side famous for their incredible variety of beach bars, clubs, and restaurants. Surrounded by crystal-clear turquoise waters, it’s an ideal island for swimming as well as for taking part in more thrilling water sports like jet-skiing, parasailing, and scuba diving. With high-end shopping like Louis Vuitton, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to rub elbows with the rich and famous or spoil yourself with handmade accessories, designer labels, leather goods, local art, jewelry and more. A true shoppers’ paradise, where the stores are always open – most stay open well past midnight during peak season.
The nightlife is what attracts many to Mykonos, best started by heading to one of the endless places for fine dining, with famed restaurants like Interni serving Mediterranean fare infused with flavors from around the world and Ling Ling by Hakkasan, an open-air Cantonese restaurant. There are plenty of authentic Greek eateries serving dishes like louza, thin slices of pork cooked in the sun with thyme and oregano, and of course, baklava for dessert. Afterwards you’ll find nearly an overwhelming selection of famous bars and clubs for sampling the nightlife, like Astra in Mykonos Town. A fixture here for decades, it’s a more mellow spot to enjoy a drink early on, but as the night progresses it really heats up. A fiberoptic ceiling mimics the night sky, pulsing in time to the music, where everyone from Keith Richards to Monaco’s royalty have been seen out on the dance floor.

On the island’s northern tip at Oia, churches, hotels, and homes spill down rock walls, creating one of the planet’s most stunning backdrops, though the scenery at sea level is just as impressive. While Santorini may not have many white sand beaches for lounging on, it does boast some of the most unique stretches on the planet, like Red Beach, where the cliffs with their fiery-red hue are turned into crimson sand at the bottom and framed by dazzling cerulean water. Of course, Santorini is well known for its black sand beaches like Perivolos and Perissa and Perivolos, but it also offers several beaches with white sand as well.
