With mega-yachts moored in its harbour, modern-day Croesus traipsing its skies with helicopters and tons of champagne bottles getting uncorked every minute, Mykonos is luscious, glamorous and extravagant in equal amounts. But there’s more than the dazzling sands, pounding bass lines and insatiable revellers. If you are planning an escapade here this summer, here are the dos and don’ts when visiting Mykonos.
Life on the beach takes a whole new meaning on Mykonos’ spectacular shores
Though it is a legendary party destination, Mykonos is more than letting loose on the dance floor and sleeping until noon. Surrounded by the Aegean’s sparkling blue waters, the island of the winds boasts some of the world’s most spectacular beaches – and they also come in various styles to suit different moods and dispositions: From the oh-so-glamorous, stomping grounds of the celebrities and their paparazzi, to popular or secret nudist haunts, and from family-friendly golden shores to paradisiacal surfers’ hangouts.
You will (most likely) not go to Mykonos for peace and quiet. You will go to this world class Mecca of cosmopolitanism, to see and to be seen; to eat in gourmet restaurants like Thioni and Krama; to chill out at stylishly opulent hotels like the Semeli; shop designer clothes at 2:00 in the morning; sip champagne concoctions at Little Venice’s Semeli the Bar; rub shoulders with the glitterati at Bao’s; go clubbing until dawn at Toy Room and then continue to party on the beach.
Life on the beach is as good as it gets on the island of the winds spectacular shores. To help you navigate through the abundant choices, the Semeli Mykonos luxury hotel presents the TOP 10 beaches to visit in Mykonos.
