Mykonos is the epitome of the European Summer. White washed walls, blooming bright pink overhanging bougainvillea, pelicans roaming the streets and scorching hot sun, there is nothing not to love about Greece’s most famous Island. Wandering the streets, it is seemingly impossible to take a bad photo.
There really is no better time to support the Greek community so if you are thinking of a last minute trip to Europe’s Summer, I would suggest Mykonos ultimately for 5 days, before ferrying to Santorini for 3.
I have shared my recommendations on where to stay, eat and shop. Mark my words, Mykonos always wins. It is the party island to rival (the party island to end all party island’s) Ibiza. Special thanks to Shopbop for my wardrobe and Skyscanner for the amazingly easy last minute flights. xHermione
