Mykonos is a cosmopolitan Greek island, world-famous for its party scene and beautiful white towns. This lovely town is a savvy destination for young people bent on having a good time, as well as intimate couples. The small island is home to roughly 10,000 inhabitants and offers a vibrant nightlife and summer parties on the beach. But if summer parties are not your scene, then the largest town in Mykonos, also known as Mykonos or Chora, is a lovely quaint destination for any couple intent on romance. Read on and discover how to woo your loved one in Mykonos!

1. Head on over to Lia Beach!

Lia Beach is an isolated beach with crystal clear water located in the most eastern part of the island. This is the place to go if you want to avoid the crowd-filled thumping beaches that give Mykonos a reputation as a party island. The beach is quiet and relaxing with many sunbeds for rent and a restaurant bar available on the beach.

I recommend buying cheap snorkel gear from the town before coming out to the beach. Like most beaches in Mykonos, it is windy but not as windy as many. And it is a pebble beach, so make sure to bring your sandals!

Kastro’s Restaurant-Bar is an acclaimed restaurant on the island with a slick wooden interior and a darling little alley. The chef cooks classic Greek cuisine with a heavy emphasis on seafood. During the day, Kastro’s is a regular restaurant, but at night, it turns into a popular bar. Regardless of when you decide to stop in, the restaurant offers a friendly atmosphere and a panoramic view of the ocean. The deconstructed baklava is highly recommended!

Little Venice is an old scenic district in Mykonos, filled with restaurants and bars. It is one of the most romantic places on the island, with charming corridors and gorgeous sunset views. So find a sea-side restaurant, grab a chair and watch the sun go down over the Mediterranean Sea. Don’t forget to try the gelato!

4. Explore the romantic 16th century windmills in little Venice

Right outside Little Venice, these centuries-old windmills are a rare comely sight. They are a landmark on the Mykonian landscape. A prudent move is to grab a blanket and a bottle of wine and watch the gorgeous Mediterranean change colors as the evening sun sets.

This elegant hotel is known on the island for its sleek slick interior and notoriously friendly staff. This is a very accommodating hotel. If you need an ATV, they will arrange it. They bring you breakfast in the morning. Also, when you book your room, see if any are available with an outdoor hot tub on the porch. Expect beautiful views of the blue Mediterranean Sea.

Established in 1969 by a Greek man named Freddy, Paradise Beach is touted by some as the party capital of Greece. International DJs and thousands of partygoers flock here every year. A number of businesses have grown out of the beach, including a resort, restaurants and bars. If you want to take part in the phenomenon of non-stop beach parties, then this Greek beach is just for you.

There are few things to do in Mykonos more fun than traveling by ATV. In fact, traveling in Mykonos may ruin traveling in other countries for you. Usually, when traveling or vacationing in a foreign country, you walk or take a cab. But after experiencing the exhilaration of an ATV, which is completely safe with prudent driving and a helmet on, walking or taking a cab may just seem drab.

What is great about ATVing in Mykonos is that you can get anywhere on the island within a few hours. You have complete freedom and independence. It’s a great way for you to get to a secluded spot with your loved one or find the best beach to hang at. I recommend renting one the first day you get to the island.

Όσο απεργία και να κάνετε αλήτες της ΠΝΟ, εμείς θαλασσινά θα βρίσκουμε!

Posted by Apaggio Mykonos on Thursday, 18 May 2017

Apaggio is a moderately priced seafood restaurant on the water’s edge in Orbis bay. This is a great restaurant to take your special someone for a romantic dinner. And it’s near Ornos beach, so after eating you can slip your shoes off and go feel the sand between your toes. The Elmek dessert is recommended and you should make sure to get there before 10 p.m. That’s when local family parties begin to arrive!
