Possibilities are endless, but we have some favourites and we feel like sharing today. Click through them and don’t be shy, go ahead and give away your own little finds!

Walk through the beautiful white and blue "kalderimia" in a beach chic outfit, matching your MITOS Samal Bandeau with an ethereal cover up, and a pop of colour on the shoes.
Looking for fun on the beach or for endless sands just to yourself? Thank God this island can generously provide both. Probably boasting the best sea waters in all of the Aegean, all its beaches are just bliss to swim at. Head to Psarrou if you are looking for some of that infamous cosmopolitan vibe of Mykonos, or to Agios Sostis to mingle with the cool and haute hippie crowd.
A resort in the center of the island's main town? Well, the cosmopolitan and sexy Belvedere hotel is as close as it gets, offering a hidden paradise within walking distance to everywhere that matters.
If what you dream though is a sandy beach outside your room, Mykonos Ammos Hotel. Close enough to the city, yet on a conveniently wind-free and carefree beach , the only danger here is that you might never wanna step outside its doors.
Start your stay here with a visit to the Belvedere Shop or the Go Ammos store, respectively, in order to get ready ahead of those much stylish dips!
Is your appetite is commanding Michelin stars or a taste of the local? Book a table at Matsuhisa if your tastebuds are being posh or at the new hip spot Spilia on the beach of Agia Anna for mouthwatering greek specialties and fresh seafood.
Astra is a always a classic spot for spotting. But if you really want to see the island's handsomest crowds and still have space and great music to dance to, the new Moni club will keep you on your feet till the morning hours. More in a romantic 'let's have a cocktail' mood? The garden of the Manto open air cinema is a gem still undiscovered by the many.
