Whether you come as single, family or friends, you ‘ll have the time of your life! The island welcomes the elite of an international mix of travelers who have the same goal: Live the absolute Mykonos experience. That depends on the taste, if you want to party endlessly, eat the best food in the chicest restaurants, or swim in crystal waters. You can decide which one you ‘re going for this year in a few minutes. Just keep reading.
Psarou is the most famous beach of the island and there is a good reason for it! Crystal azure-blue waters, hotspot of celebrities and the most exclusive champagne party experience in Nammos! If you can’t make it to Psarou or you prefer something quieter, head to Capari beach. Wild and untouched beach, it gives you the feeling of being private.
The most family friendly beaches are Fokos and Kalo Livadi. You can enjoy the clear waters in both of them and be sure that your lunch will be great, since Greek taverns and restaurants are very close. Agios Sostis is a quiet beach as well, and the most popular beach as well. Remember to eat at Kiki’s traditional tavern, that operates for 30 years without electricity!
Elia is one of the largest beaches on Mykonos island and the most gay-popular. This sandy beach is well-managed with many good quality sun beds and shades for rent. For the water sports lovers, we recommend Paradise, Kalafatis, Corfos and Platis Gialos beaches. Great water, great equipment and variety of activities!
Try local mezze and Greek cuisine and you’ll thank us! Kiki’s tavern is a must as we said, but you have to get there early to avoid the waiting lines. Make sure that you’ll try fresh fish and homemade beef burgers in Fokos taverna as well, but have in mind that is open for lunch only. Apaggio will certainly be one of favorite places as well as Roca Cookery, where your meal is accompanied by Greek music!
When your palette is up to eastern cuisine, you should reserve your place in the Michelin-starred Cantonese restaurant Ling Ling by Hakkasan. Amazing dishes and izakaya concept! Go to Kiku Japanese restaurant for Japanese cuisine and cocktails, and if you want a twist try Matsuhisa Nobu for traditional Japanese cuisine with influence from Latin America! Mores gastronomical delight follows in Kalita, Buddha-Bar, La Maison de Catherine, Interni and Remezzo. Creative dishes with Mediterranean flavors are waiting for you!
Have the first drink of the night in one of the bars in Chora. Try a fresh fruit cocktail in Scarpa and a glass of champagne in Queen. Of course, you don’t want to miss Caprice! It has been named by Newsweek as one of the 10 best bars in the world, and you should see why by yourself! Bonbonniere is the place to be, where island partygoers look to experience the island’s famous nightlife!
If you are up to a drink at the beach, we have three powerful choices for you: Scorpios, Sol Y Mar and Nammos, where else? Soly Y Mar is a well-known hot spot mainly for the Greek crowds or those in the know and Nammos parties are always huge successful events and remain unforgettable to whoever has the privilege to attend. Don’t miss it!
Here comes the stuff for those who want to party hardy! Toy Room and Moni are London style clubs, where you will shake in a mix of house rhythms. Paradise Club hosts musical performances from famous DJs, and so does Cavo Paradiso. World class DJs will make you dance the sunrise away. Just when you feel the night is supposed to end, that's when it's time to head to the popular club Guzel. Greeks crowd inside to dance to all of the popular summer songs.
Elysium and Montparnasse are among the most popular gay bars in Mykonos. Start with a drink and a drag show at Elysium as the sun goes down and head to Montparnasse for the cabaret show! Head to Babylon, where every day is another day with drag shows, dances, theme parties! And of course, the whole experience ends with Jackie O’, where the motto is “from sunset to sunrise in style”.
Mykonos sounds lovely, right? And imagine that we did not even start on shopping or other activities! But you will see it for yourself this year. Pick a date and the best company and the summer feels much closer!
