5 Ways To Have A Luxury Holiday In Mykonos
Enjoy a sunset yacht cruise
The views in Mykonos are pretty magical any time of day. During the daytime you’ll love seeing the white Cycladic architecture against bright blue skies with the turquoise of the ocean below. At night, the bays and harbours are filled with shimmering lights, as yachts bob up and down on the Aegean Sea.
For a taste of luxury though, the best time in Mykonos is sunset. The ultimate way to see the rays of golden light diffusing over the landscape is on a sunset yacht cruise. Book onto a tour, or charter your own for an uber-lux experience. You could even raise a glass of champagne to toast your luxury holiday in Mykonos.
