Santorini and Mykonos
Best time to be there
The mainland and islands are very hot and dry in July and especially August, the preferred travel month for French, Italian and Spanish holiday makers, making conditions busy, hotel availability limited and the beaches crowded. May, June and September are infinitely more comfortable and generally less expensive.

The dry and barren windswept island of Mykonos with its stark white buildings is graced with excellent beaches and a beautiful, colourful and cosmopolitan town. Its proximity to ancient Delos has made it the most popular island in the Cyclades. The most westerly of the Cyclades is Santorini, a volcanic island with its glamorous beauty associated with the misty tales of Atlantis. The white villages cling to towering cliffs where you can enjoy a sundowner in one of the world's most enchanting settings.
