Sun, sea and sand are the holy trinity when it comes to Greek island holidays. What more could you want? Add in high-quality restaurants, nightlife nearby and the chance to take to the water by boat whenever the mood strikes and that’s what Ornos holidays look like. For travellers who want to catch some rays, dip in the ocean, eat seafood and have a couple of nights out, holidays to Ornos are a great choice.
On a narrow isthmus at the western end of Mykonos, Ornos’s south-facing golden beach hugs a turquoise bay with adorable, sugar-cube-like Greek homes rising up the hill towards the island’s signature windmills. A fashionable crowd moor their yachts here, and enjoy this divine cove which is just minutes away from Mykonos Town. It’s also a good spot from which to explore the nearby islands and beaches by boat. A true island gem, Ornos has everything you could wish for in a Greek getaway.
Step back in time
Take a boat ride out to the nearby island of Delos, an important site in Greek mythology that was said to be the birthplace of the twin Olympian deities Apollo and Artemis.
Enjoy the bustle
Mykonos Town is a 10-minute bus ride away – it’s the perfect place for indulging in some retail therapy, or immersing yourself in the lively local nightlife.
Explore remote beaches
Ornos beach is lovely, but if you feel like a bit of variety, take a local boat trip to some of the area’s more quiet and remote sandy coves.
