And last year, Jack Grealish, Raheem Sterling and Kyle Walker were all pictured soaking up the sunshine in the holiday hotspot.
It’s not surprising given that Mykonos is known for its bars and clubs as well as a chilled vibe and luxury hotels.
Holidaying on the island isn’t always cheap though, and you’ll want to book as far in advance as possible.
If you’re looking for something later this year, we’ve found a couple of deals with Jet2 Holidays.
You can stay for 7 nights at the 4* Acrogiali Beach Hotel, which is close to the local town centre.
During the day, chill out by the beach – the hotel has private access to its own stretch of sandy coastline – or access the sister hotel’s pool.
And at night, it’s just a short walk to local bars and restaurants.
