Experience a modern-day idyll with our handpicked suggestions for the best sunset places in Mykonos
Mykonos is famous for many things: Its paradisiacal beaches. Its iconic Town. Its hedonistic lifestyle. Its dusk to dawn parties. Its misbehaving celebrities. Its dramatic sunsets. There is actually a whole ritual associated with the latter. And it has been taking place every afternoon ever since this pristinely beautiful, whitewashed island was discovered by the bon vivants of the ’60s.
Cocktails at dusk, this magical hour when the burning circle makes its spectacular dive into the deep blue Aegean waters, is a time-honoured Mykonian tradition. A favourite pastime even the most ardent beach bums can’t resist, even if this means that they have to leave their seaside fun to get ready.
