Canadian pop star Justin Bieber and wife Hailey (née Baldwin) touched down quietly in Mykonos in a private helicopter.

The couple are travelling around Greece, visiting the islands of Mykonos, Milos, and Santorini, this time opting for more humble spots to eat over the high-end eateries.

The singer shared photos of himself eating at one of the private boathouses of the Medusa Tavern in Milos, and was reported to have made friends with local 79-year-old fisherman Mr Andreas by Cobalt Music executive, Dimitris Tsakoumis.

The star also had lunch at the Elia restaurant and Hanabi in Adamas.

Of course, luxury was not off the books as the couple went for the ultimate Greek experience, sailing around the beautiful blue waters on a boat.


Mykonos is always a favourite destination among the rich and famous, so it was no surprise that Norwegian footballer and Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland has been joining many other international celebrities for an end-of-season holiday on the island.

Haaland got a little sour on Twitter after English journalists picked up a story made by Greek newspaper “Sportime”, which reported the footballer had spent €500,000 (approx. 790,000 AUD)  in six hours at a restaurant in Mykonos and left a €30,000 (47,000 AUD) tip for the staff. The report also claimed the footballer himself drank four bottles of Cristal Vintage champagne at €70 (110 AUD) each.

Haaland responded to the reports on, calling it “fake news”, however the paper responded in a follow up article saying s they would “forgive” him for making his “fake news” claim.

The Norwegian was also snapped partying it up on the island with Manchester City winger and Algeria’s captain Riyad Mahrez.
