An island also known as “Greece’s answer to Ibiza,” Mykonos reels in some of the most sought-after artists and DJs from around the world to their many large dance clubs and beach bars. Even for those not looking for an amazing party scene, Mykonos has much more to offer. With up to 25 beaches, this island is made to suit any visitor’s needs. Whether that need be a calm, and relaxing beach or one filled with other party-goers. The Mykonos dining experience is also one to note, and one that draws in many guests around the globe. Getting to this small, Greek island may not be as difficult as one would think, despite travelling in the peak summer season. If you are based in London, flights via Easy Jet will run anywhere from 175 to 275 pounds depending on the date of travel.
