In the morning, Mykonos Town can seem subdued. Its sleepy streets quiet, with just the creak of the old Venetian windmills mingling with the sound of the lapping Aegean Sea. But that’s only because many people are still in bed, basking in the party haze from the night before, when the whitewashed tavernas sloshed with ouzo and beach bars kept the music flowing under the twinkling stars. The nightlife here may be famous, but more treasures await with the rising of the sun, whether it's the shimmering sands of Elia Beach, the ancient treasures of nearby Delos, or the wild coves that stud the rocky eastern shores. You'll be able to bag Mykonos holiday villas all over this pretty island, and experience all that hedonism and history for yourself.
It would be a shame to go with the crowd and settle for a traditional hotel on Mykonos, what with so many characterful country cottages, traditional Greek homes, and luxurious Mykonos holiday rentals on the menu. You can use ebookers to seek out the one that's perfect for you, whether you're after a place with a private infinity pool overlooking the turquoise bays, or a stylish pad close to the party strips of Mykonos Town. You can also expect to enjoy plenty more room from holiday rentals in Mykonos compared to bed and breakfasts, as many come with separate lounge spaces and al fresco eating areas – perfect for those summer seafood BBQs.
Mykonos has established itself as one of the top places in the whole Aegean region to hit the party strips and let loose. Little Venice and the pulsing bars on Agion Anargyron Street are a great place to start, especially when you factor in the classic tavernas that punctuate the pubs there. During the day, you can sizzle off the hangover on one of the many gorgeous beaches, ranging from wide Agios Stefanos to the pearly-white sands of Paradise Beach. Or, you can board the boats and bob over the Aegean to the island of Delos. That's where you'll find crumbling temples and ancient relics, all dating back to the very beginnings of the Athenian empire – for history buffs, it's a real must-do.
Hopping around the coast of Mykonos is made easy thanks to the regular buses that depart out of Mykonos Town. That's great news if you're looking to book holiday villas in Mykonos that come with views of the Aegean Sea, or a location a little away from the pulsing nightlife centres. That said, there's still no better way to explore this rugged island than by hiring a car of your own. Getting 4 wheels from one of the many local hire places will mean you're free to adventure to the wilder east coast, to visit the rustic inland villages, or go in search of secluded little coves where there are no other souls in sight.
