Is celebrity-favourite Mykonos the new Ibiza of 2018?
While all the stars headed to Spanish island Ibiza last year, it looks like they may be jetting to the Greek island of Mykonos in 2018. Cristiano Ronaldo, Lindsay Lohan, the Kardashians and Lady Gaga were just a few celebrities to recently grace the idyllic shores of Mykonos, and more may soon follow in visiting the island made famous in the 1960s by Jackie Onassis and Grace Kelly, as it’s set to be the summer queen of hip holiday destinations for 2018.
The beautiful hilly spot, dotted with more than 400 white-washed churches, has more recently become famous for its vibrant night life – with clubs such as Jackie O, Rock n Roll, Guzel and Astra on offer – as well as perfect daytime beach activities including boat trips and windsurfing.
A significant bonus for holidaymakers is the chance to see some of the world’s top DJs for less than it might cost at Ibiza, long famed for its party scene.
According to the analysis of millions of search flights on leading global travel search site Skyscanner from the last three years, combined with qualitative research carried out by The Future Laboratory, Mykonos is tipped as one of 10 hotspots for UK travellers this year.
The statistics, which put the “island of the winds” in third place after the further afield Siem Reap, Cambodia and Fort Lauderdale in Florida, will mean a boost of optimism for the Mediterranean paradise, after years of a tourism downturn brought on by economic turmoil.
With a 31% rise in flight searches, it appears that visitors are returning to the travel gem, eager to experience not only its night life but its beauty and culture.
“While Mykonos is home to high-end resorts, Private Villas, the beach bars, restaurants, boutiques and Premium VIP Concierge Services, the island remains quintessentially Greek with its winding, stone-paved alleyways, windmills and typically Cycladic architecture.”
