Best Hotels in Mykonos
The best hotel for your stay in Mykonos depends on what you hope to do as you want a property that provides easy access. Mykonos Town, or Chora, is the center of it all. During the day it’s pedestrianized with motor vehicle traffic banned. There are lots of restaurants, shops, and hopping nightlife, along with bus connections that will get you to the beaches. The downside for some is that it will be very busy during the peak of the tourist season, July and August.
If your primary goal is to spend your days at the beach, the Paradise Beach area is home to the best summer parties along with plenty of hotel rooms, apartments, and a resort. Platis Gialos, 2.5 miles south of Mykonos Town, offers a little of something for everyone with a good mix of restaurants, more laid-back nightlife, gorgeous white sands, calm turquoise water for swimming, and all sorts of accommodation options. The Elia Beach area, six miles from Mykonos Town, has the most relaxed vibe among the south coast beaches, with a more tranquil, family-friendly atmosphere. To get even further from the crowds, head to Ano Mera, located at the island’s center. It’s not within walking distance to the beach but the sand can easily be reached via public transport, taxi, or a rental car.
