Back on Mykonos, if you're looking for the best places to sunbathe, bigger doesn't necessarily mean better. Nammos on the south coast's Psarou beach, is probably the island's most notorious beach club - it's here that the rich and/or famous come to pose on a sun lounger, paying E91/£80 a day for the privilege. A bit out of your price range? Paradise and the smaller Super Paradise beach, both found further west along the coast, offer the same lively vibe as Psarou, but sunbed rental starts from about E11/£10. Too noisy? Try family-friendly Ornos, a 10-minute drive south of Hora, which is home to lots of great Greek and seafood restaurants.

"Zeus was a very, very naughty boy," he says as he explains the mythical tale of how the king of the gods created the island of Delos to hide his pregnant mistress from his wife. You can also book a ferry with Delos Tours (delostours. gr) for around E19/£17 per person, return. You can't stay on Delos - now a UNESCO World Heritage site - but you can stop off to visit the Archaeological Museum of Delos (free when you pay around E11/£10 for the island entrance fee) and see its current 'inhabitants', positioned there by god of the art world, Antony Gormley. The British sculptor has installed 29 iron 'bodyform' pieces as part of his 'Sight' installation, which is in place until October 31.
