mykonos villa

If you are planning to spend your next holidays in Mykonos, you already know what to expect there: rich nightlife, sandy beaches, gourmet restaurants and elegant accommodation are the main reasons travellers choose Mykonos island for their summer vacations.

Luxury accommodation

Mykonos has the most exclusive accommodation, including 5 star hotels or resorts and Mykonos villas. Most celebrities and VIPS choose a Mykonos villa to rent, as they offer extreme luxury, privacy and a lot of concierge services. They are all built to match the surrounding landscape and each one is a small masterpiece of architecture. You can choose among a Mykonos Town villa, a beach villa or a villa in a more secluded landscape. Our suggestion is to book your Mykonos villa well in advance, as the best ones are booked a long time before summer.

The 5 star hotels and resorts are also a great option, especially if you prefer to have a lot of people around you. They are usually located near the most beautiful beaches or Mykonos Town.

Vivid Nightlife

As soon as the sun goes down, Mykonos Town gets a new life. The small, pedestrian streets of the center become overcrowded by tourists who want to experience the special Mykonos’ nightlife and have fun. Little Venice is a good place to start with, as you will find a lot of small bars there. But the whole city is full of bars and nightclubs so it is highly recommended that you expand your adventures. You will have plenty of time, as Mykonos nightlife lasts until the next morning!

Some of the most famous bars at Little Venice are: Baos, Lola, Galleraki, Scarpa, Semeli, Veranda. The best part about Mykonos bars is that after midnight they turn into small nightclubs where people dance, drink and socialize, either indoors or outdoors.

You can find more nice bars in different areas of the city, like Queen, Bombonniere, Paso Doble and Cozy at the heart of Mykonos town.

There are also many nightclubs in Mykonos Town where dance addicts will have the opportunity to dance to the latest hits and famous DJs keep stirring up the crowds all night long. Some of the best ones are Astra at Tria Pigadia area, Moni at Agia Moni Square, Cinderella and Void in the heart of the city and Toy Room at Little Venice.

If you prefer a night club on the beach, dancing under a starry sky until early in the morning, the best choice is Cavo Paradiso at Paradise beach with worldwide famous Djs.

Intense Daylife

What would be a better way to spend a hot summer day than relaxing on a comfortable sun lounger on a sandy beach next to the crystal clear sea with an exotic cocktail in your hand? This is exactly what you can expect from your holidays to Mykonos!

You will find a lot of beach bars on various beaches of the island. However, the favorite type of beach entertainment for most tourists seems to be the day resort beach club. Such venues include different facilities like beach bars, restaurants, spa, cabanas or even water sports facilities and they offer high quality services. You can easily find a lot of fun things to do and you don’t even need to move to another place for a meal. Some of the best day resorts are Nammos at Psarou beach, Alemagou at Ftelia, Scorpios at Paranga, Principote at Panormos beach and Solymar at Kalo Livadi beach.
