No doubt the two most well-known and visited islands of Greece are Mykonos and Santorini, both beautiful and unique in their own way and should be on your Greece hit list. 

In Mykonos, you can party til sunrise, get lost shopping in the maze of narrow laneways, take a dip in the turquoise waters or enjoy a seafood lunch by the beach. Mykonos has something for everyone. 

If you're looking for endless photo opportunities and something a little more romantic, Santorini's whitewashed cliffside villages will transport you to a magical place. There is no denying its allure.

The place to gather for a late lunch that stretches into the night. This beachside lair offers a bohemian desert escape with good food and beats.

Little Venice
A visit to Mykonos isn't complete without a sunset drink in Little Venice, a waterfront area with rows of 18th-century fishing houses with balconies that overlooks the sea. If you fancy a dance in the evening, head to Caprice bar. 

Seafood, tunes and seaside views. Located in the cave of Agia Anna, next to Kalafatis beach, this is a place for a fun boozy lunch with a group of friends.

Kiki's Tavern
Tucked away on the north side of the island, Kiki’s Tavern is a small open-air eatery with long queues any time of the day. Because of the long wait, they offer complimentary rosé and water. You can also walk down the hill and take a dip at Agios Sostis beach while you wait. 

Located on Panormos Beach, Principote is the hottest new beach club. Enjoy lunch, cocktails, sun-soaked loungers and the best stretch of sand on the island. 

Cavo Paradiso
Dance your heart out and watch the sunrise at this iconic cliffside nightclub that hosts famous International DJs.

Dimitris Taverna
Enjoy fresh seafood by the sea as you listen to the waves. Order a whole fish, sit back and watch the world go by.

Perched on top of the old town in Fira, this restaurant has views of the Caldera making it a popular spot for sunset drinks and dinner. Make sure to book a table on their rooftop terrace.

Swim at Ammoudi Bay
A swimming spot reached by a dirt path winding along volcanic cliffs past the taverna lined fishing village of Ammoudi. A popular spot for cliff jumping.
Note: there is no beach, you need to climb in and out over the rocks.

Theros Wave Bar
Down a long windy dusty road through the incredible rock face, you are suddenly greeted by a cliffside bar overlooking Vlychada beach. There's even an outdoor massage area. 

Red Beach
Just down the road from the Akrotiri ruins, Red beach is the most unique beach on the island. The stretch of pebbly sand is surrounded by towering, bright-red cliffs.

Oia Village
Located on the northern side of the island, Oia is famous for its sunset views and picturesque architecture. Stroll the narrow streets lined with little shops selling everything from clothing, jewellery to ceramics.
