Blue skies, white buildings, beaches galore and sunshine through to October means it's no surprise Greece has topped a survey on Europe's most beautiful islands by review site www.zoover.co.uk.
Starter for 10: Mykonos
Or check in to a villa in the Cavo Delos area. Sea Villa has an infinity pool, private beach and sleeps four. From £769 per week, with www.holidaylettings.co.uk.
Today it's an important archaeological site, and you can wander round the ruins dating back millennia. The site museum on the island has a collection of artefacts, including the lions from the famous Terrace of the Lions, while you can see the plaster replicas in situ, the Sanctuary of Apollo and the Sacred Way, as well as temple remains. If you have the time and energy, head through the remains of the houses in the Theatre Quarter to climb Mount Kythnos.
Boats leave the Old Jetty on Mykonos regularly during the morning and return between 11am and 3pm. No-one lives on the island these days, so don't miss the last one back! Entrance to the island and museum costs around £4.25, while a return boat ticket is around £13.
If relaxing leaves you bored, the stronger winds on the island's north coast mean it's not as much fun for sunbathers but windsurfers will love Ftelia beach. And for an all-over tan, it's fine to strip off on at Paradise and Super Paradise, both nudist beaches.
Start at the harbour, keeping an eye out for the island's mascots, the tame pelicans who wander down there for fish first thing in the morning. If you don't fancy getting up early, head through seaside Little Venice to Mykonos' famous windmills, and chances are you'll spot one or two.
Mixing Byzantine architecture with vernacular, it gets its name of 'Our Lady of the Side Gate', as it originally stood near the entrance of a medieval castle. Climb up the stone staircase on the eastern side for views out to the sea.
Or for somewhere with a less than designer price tag, check out Bakalo, the newest Greek restaurant on the island where there's traditional food and equally retro decor.
Less A-list, but with an equally fantastic view, Caprice bar in Little Venice does great cocktails. Sit at one of the tables on the cobbles by the waterfront, watch the world go by while the sun sets over the windmills.
And on the rocks above the sea nearby, the music carries on through the night at Cavo Paradiso.
But do stop in at jewellery store Apriati. Designed by young artists, their delicate metal, leather and gem necklaces and bracelets have been picking up fans at the branches in Athens and Paris as well – whether you're looking to really splash out or just browse.
