If you know middle-aged people that go on those sunbathing holidays, you’ve heard of this one. Luckily, there’s a lot more to do in Mykonos than just get a tan and/or sunburn, depending on your complexion. It’s actually a pretty charming island! Also, it’s here that Zeus fought the Titans.

5. Zakynthos
