It’s the perfect blend of sun, sea, and parties, a combination of sight-seeing, swimming, dancing the night away or simply wasting your days by the beach – Mykonos is perfect for all ages and preferences. The white buildings, beautiful clear blue beaches, the little windy streets of the Mykonos town, every part of Mykonos has something special.

So you have two options.
Option 1: You can revel in the beach areas of Mykonos, most of them have an array of restaurants and bars nearby (keeping in mind that you will need either a car or a bus to go to town).
Option 2: Or stay where most of the action happens, right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Mykonos. By staying in those parts of the city, you can be close to both – the restaurants, bars and cafes and the beach!
