Cheap flights to Mykonos
One of the most famous of the Greek islands, Mykonos is also one of the most beautiful, with its blazing granite rock, striking white villages and stunning beaches. Mykonos is the movie star of the Greek islands with a stylish, cool and cosmopolitan edge that makes it unique in the Aegean and never fails to impress. Holidaymakers range from your honeymooning couple to your group of sophisticated partygoers or families looking for a relaxing time.
This is a party island that rivals Ibiza for its good time vibe and the quality of its bars and clubs. But if you are looking for happy hour with pints at a euro a go followed by some fish and chips wrapped in newspaper then you’ve come to the wrong place.
It’s not all party, party, party though – well not completely. Mykonos has some of the best beaches where you can relax on pure white sands, take a dip in some of the clearest waters you’ll find in the Mediterranean, or if you’re still up for it, carry on the party at one of the island’s many beach bars. And the restaurants and hotels aren’t half bad either, with some of the best you’ll find in Greece.
Spend your evening enjoying a cooking class at the Mykonian Spiti, a wonderful house where you can learn new cooking skills, immerse yourself into the local cuisine and learn about life on the island. The menu includes spinach pie, gemista (tomatoes and peppers stuffed with rice), tzatziki and many more which are to be savoured along with wine in the end of the course. www.mykonianspiti.com
