The sun-soaked Greek islands have long tempted honeymooners to their shores, and the Cycladic island of Mykonos is known for its whitewashed villages and lively nightlife. It’s a favourite with celebrities, as well as newlyweds searching for gorgeous sunsets and stunning sandy beaches.
Mykonos’ beaches, blue azure waters and picturesque boutique hotels tempt honeymooners in search of romantic scenery. The cosmopolitan island is famed for its nightlife and exclusive beach clubs, with live DJs entertaining throughout the night.
Imagine wandering hand-in-hand through Mykonos Town’s pedestrian narrow lanes where you’ll be taken in by the romance of its whitewashed walls, with narrow streets struck with splashes of colour in the form of red flowers and fashion boutiques.
Mykonos has a wealth of gorgeous beaches, including Elia, which is the island’s largest or Paradise and Super Paradise, known for its party atmosphere; and Lia, which is more secluded and therefore perfect for couples looking for a relaxed setting.
There are no shortages of things to do in Mykonos. Boat cruises are a fun way to take in the beauty of Mykonos’ shoreline. Look out for trips offering the opportunity to swim and snorkel in pristine waters, and visit other islands, such as Santorini or Delo. Better still, take a sunset cruise and, with a glass of wine in hand, gaze at the sky as it turns brilliant shades of red and amber.
One of Mykonos’ most iconic settings is Little Venice, where a cluster of 18th-century houses perch right on the water’s edge, calling to mind its namesake Italian city. Be sure to book a table at one of the waterside restaurants, and enjoy feasting on freshly-caught seafood and local Greek delicacies, with views of the sunset and those famous Mykonos windmills.
You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to the perfect honeymoon resorts. Close to Ornos Beach you’ll find Kenshō Ornos, a stylish boutique retreat with a unique cave spa. Above Elia Beach sits the luxurious Myconian Utopia, where suites come complete with their own private pool. Or, if you want to stay closer to the lively town , the elegant Cave Tagoo Mykonos set on a cliffside offers a romantic setting overlooking the Aegean Sea – it also features an infinity pool with a 40-metre aquarium bar, and a fully equipped spa.
Whether you’re sun-worshippers or partygoers, you’ll find that star-studded Mykonos offers the ultimate in romantic honeymoon moments.
