The Greek Islands have always had a romantic feel to them. Crystal clear waters, beautiful scenery and a very laid back atmosphere, and it seems like the island of Mykonos has hosted a procession of celebrity visitors this summer. The island has always offered a hedonistic lifestyle and great nightlife.
The Italian fashion icon Giorgio Armani can often be seen on his yacht off the coast entertaining friends on-board whilst also mixing with people on holiday.
Also seen on Mykonos in past years have been Queen Latifah, Hugh Jackman and Greek shipping heir Stavros Niarchos
The busy main port area of Mykonos, where ferries dock and cruise ships anchor nearby, is alongside Mykonos town, which is probably the most attractive town in the Cycladic island group. The airport is just a few minutes away, but the best way to be introduced to this vibrant place is to sail in on a ferry – especially at night when the town takes on its after-dark identity.
Today the rich, and the likes of the George Bush clan, as well as stars like Jane Fonda, Sandra Bullock, Kevin Costner and Mel Gibson, are flown in by special helicopter from Athens to stay at a clutch of deluxe hotels.
You don’t have to be a celebrity of course to book a holiday on Mykonos. Just ask a travel agent !
