The ULTIMATE Instagram tour of Mykonos

Mykonos ultimate

Undoubtedly Mykonos is the ultimate destination for taking Instagram snaps.

The "Island of Wind" is perhaps the most recognised Greek island after Santorini with its chic cafés and cool bars.

We also cannot forget the lovely beaches, nearby ancient ruins and the prettiest alleyways you’ll ever stroll down.

This makes the island a must visit location for any Instagram enthusiast.

Upload a cocktail at Kalua
