Mykonos is the most popular Greek island, synonymous with lively nightlife, cosmopolitan lifestyle, and everlasting parties. You should definitely visit the luxurious hotspots of the island, like Nammos and Paradise beach, and have a coffee at the scenic Little Venice.
There are, however, some secret places, known only by locals, that you should not miss as they will offer you an authentic and unique insight into the island. We asked our concierge to share with us the best experiences in Mykonos, and we present you 4 of them.
Sunset Music Ritual in Scorpios
Scorpios is undoubtedly the most popular beach bar in Mykonos and is open both day and night, so you have the option to fully enjoy your day there. However, the best experience you can live at Scorpios is the Sunset Music Ritual. The party starts around 5:30 pm, and a band or a DJ takes over the stage while a central fire pit is lit. Make sure to make a reservation in advance, as there is a high demand for these parties that last till dawn.

Kapari is a secluded, unorganized beach with amazing crystal-clear waters and views of the Aegean Sea and the Delos Island. On the western side of Mykonos, is popular among locals as it’s a serene and alternative choice to get away from the vibrant beach bars. If you decide to visit Kapari, better bring sneakers with you, as to reach the beach you have to take a narrow rocky path.
Tragonisi (or Dragonisi) is a small, isolated island on the east side of Mykonos, a protected Natura 2000 area and home to the seal Monachus Monachus. The island is perfect for a one-day cruise for diving and snorkeling to the caverns, where you can admire the rich marine environment and life, like the yellow sea anemones found exclusively there. If you are not a fan of these activities, you can always enjoy the ride and dive into the magical, turquoise waters.
Open-air Cinema Manto
Right at the center of Mykonos Town yet completely secluded from the crowds, sits this lovely cinema that will travel you back in time. There is a vast garden with a restaurant, where you can have a coffee or a Greek meze and, in the evening, there’s nothing better than enjoying an old Hollywood classic movie or a blockbuster under the starry sky in this scenic, beautiful place.
