Whether you want to soak in the sunshine from the comfort of a white sandy beach, stroll along the shoreline taking in one of the region’s famous sunsets, or get involved in some adrenaline-inducing water sports, Mykonos has a stretch of coastline with your name on it.

You can choose to partake in a scuba diving adventure to a nearby wreck or opt for a shallower diving experience among the brightly coloured marine life around Bikini Reef.
