Mykonos is easily the most glamorous of the Greek islands, with its sandy beaches, charming villages and cosmopolitan nightlife. From luxury resorts like the Myconian Avaton Resort to self-catered havens like Elena Studios, you can find accommodation to suit your style, budget and plans. The beaches on Mykonos are something else: whether you want to relax on secluded shores, try out water sports or sip cocktails as the sun sets, you'll find the right stretch of sand.
The Acrogiali Hotel delivers the best in beach holidays. It's got prime position on Platis Yialos Beach, meaning you're just steps away from the golden sands and crystal-clear water. There are sun loungers, beach towels and parasols on the beach so you can settle down for the day and enjoy the rhythmical noise of the waves against the shore. The hotel itself has a beachfront bar and restaurant, and there's a water sports and diving centre on the beach.
The slow pace of life at the Anemos Studios is perfect for anyone after a relaxing holiday. Stroll down to Ornos Beach – it's just 100m from the grounds – or head to Ornos Bay for a boat excursion to explore hidden, secluded beaches. The grounds contain a stylish swimming pool surrounded by a sun terrace and pool bar, and the owners hire out bikes so you can quickly head down to the town centre or get to know the local area.
The traditional, whitewashed Paolas Town Hotel is a charming choice for holidays in Mykonos. It's a perfect base for exploring Mykonos Town, as it's just 900m down the road. You get the best of both worlds: you're close enough to the lively nightlife and delicious restaurants, but far enough away to enjoy peace and quiet. It's a 10-minute walk to Mykonos Old Port, and under 3km to great beaches like Psaros Beach and Panormos Beach. There's also a small pool and sun terrace with loungers.
This family-run hotel has traditional, beautiful Cycladic architecture with equally stunning views over the town and sea. The stylish pool has a sun terrace and loungers too, as well as a poolside snack bar. Located in Glastros, you're just 100m to the restaurants and shops and 2km to Mykonos Town. You can walk the 1km to Psarou Beach or take a bus – the bus stop is right outside – and Platis Yialos Bay is nearby, too.
The Cyclades Studios and Apartments have prime position in Ornos: it's right in between the beach and the town's main street. The welcoming, friendly studios guarantee a great stay and the rooms come with everything you need for a pleasant stay. A short walk will bring you to the authentic tavernas and delicious restaurants in the town centre. The proximity to Ornos Beach is brilliant: you're just minutes from sparkling turquoise waters and soft white sands.
At the George Hotel you'll wake up in paradise every morning: all the rooms face out over the dazzling blue waters of the Aegean Sea. The rooms are bright and stylish, while outside you'll find a swimming pool, sun terrace and poolside bar. Platis Yialos Beach is a short walk away, where you can sunbathe on the golden sands and watch the striking sunset every evening. Mykonos Town is a short bus ride away, making it easy to explore the area.
With its traditional architecture and rustic charm, the Vienoulas Gardens Hotel is ideal for tranquil stays. The family-run hotel is close to two beaches and a short walk to Mykonos Town centre, where you'll find plenty of restaurants and bars. There's also a bus stop that'll take you to further-flung parts of Mykonos. The hotel has a swimming pool, sun terrace and comfy sun loungers, as well as a bar that serves drinks and light bites.
