Island of Mykonos Holidays

Welcome to Mykonos

One of the best known of the Greek Islands, this whitewashed paradise is in the heart of the Cyclades. It is an enchanting mix of glamour blended with the traditional life of the islands.

According to mythology the island was formed from the petrified bodies of giants which were slain by Hercules. Its steep mountains give way to low, rocky hills and superb sandy beaches. Elia is one of the best golden sandy bays - perfect for a laid-back beach holiday. The sandy beaches are lapped by the clearest azure waters.

The capital city, Hora, also known as Mykonos Town, has a charming, colourful harbour where small working fishing boats moor side by side with luxury yachts. Look out for the pelicans, adopted by the locals as the official mascot of Mykonos. Its marble streets spread out over a large, flat area, its whitewashed buildings, draped with bougainvillea with their brightly-coloured doors and window frames, interspersed with tiny but impressive churches, pretty tavernas and shops

postcard perfect! Make sure you visit Alefkantra or ‘Little Venice’, the most attractive of the districts where grand captains’ mansions perch above the sea with their colourful balconies. Known as the ‘island of the winds’, Mykonos is a paradise for water sport enthusiasts, attracting surfers and sailors from all over the world. It is also popular with keen divers, and offers many dive and water sport centres.

The delicious local cuisine is sure to be a highlight of your holiday -kopanisti, a soft cheese seasoned with pepper is a local delicacy, often served on a round rusk spread with grated tomato. There are also some tasty local sausages cooked with local sun-dried oregano and sprinkled with pepper. Those with a sweet tooth will enjoy the exceptional local pastries, amigdalota small round cakes made with ground almond, rosewater and sugar and honey pie.

"I wanted to send you an e-mail now that we are back from our wonderful holiday. My wife and I wanted to express our sincere gratitude to you and the team at Diamond Star for arranging a truly unique style of holiday that we are still talking about to friends and family two weeks after we came home. The places we have visited, and the things we have seen were truly amazing, it will take a month or more to sort through our photos"  Andrew and June Welch - 24 Oct 2022

"Back from our holiday to Istanbul/Cappadocia what an awesome holiday. The hot air balloon was out of this world. Thank you Diamond Star for making it all possible special thanks to Nazan. I recommend this company to make your dreams come true."  Mrs Angela Bailey - 6 Oct 2022

"We arrived home from Fethiye on Monday, and would just like to thank you and Akin for planning an amazing trip. The gulet was fantastic and as usual, the Ece Saray Hotel was lovely. The staff there are some of the best we have come across, and the breakfasts were great. We are looking ahead to 2023 and were wondering if you could arrange a quote for a similar trip."  Sue and Mike Fedeczko - 28 September 2022
