If you want to spend your first days as husband and wife in an atmosphere that shares the excitement you’re feel in your wedded bliss, look no further than the Greek island of Mykonos, where you’ll be surrounded by the beauty of the Cyclades as well as countless well-wishers from around the world.

As a honeymoon destination, “the island of the winds” is as breezy as it sounds, buy Mykonos also gets more than 300 days of sunshine annually. No wonder, then, that visitors flock to the Aegean Sea to explore Mykonos’ whitewashed villages and the ancient holy island of Delos, nibble the local kopanistí cheese, and congregate on beaches that are aptly named “Paradise.”

Mykonos has a well-earned reputation as a sybaritic destination: afternoon beach parties blend seamlessly into sunset cocktails, and evening dinners typically transition into post-prandial cocktails and late-night hangouts. You can join the celebration even as you toast your new life together, then continue your honeymoon by exploring Mykonos’ quieter corners or slipping back to a romantic retreat like the boutique Grace Mykonos hotel overlooking the beach at Agios Stefanos, or the Royal Myconian Hotel with its healing thalassotherapy spa.
