If you wake up in Mykonos ready to carpe diem, go back to sleep.

Most notably the party island of the Cyclades, Mykonos is a hotspot for high-energy nightclubs and VIP beaches. It attracts international jet-setters seeking the best in a global restaurant scene with a side of Greek paradise.

The party all night, sleep all day mantra is real, so rest up—and plan your days around extravagant late lunches turning into sunset cocktails or beachside dinners with DJ sets beating well into the next morning.

Mykonos Travel Notes

Shopping and Late Night in Mykonos Town
Little Venice is known for its postcard architecture and numerous late-night bars. Shop luxury brands and local boutiques alike then succumb to the taunting ’80s beats at Negrita. Be sure to take the cocktails to the porch and allow waves from the Aegean Sea to splash up on your sandals. It’s a Mykonos moment to be sure.

Yacht Life
Chartering a boat for swimming and exploring neighboring islands for the day is a must while in Mykonos. Pick your vessel size and let L’o Yachting navigate a Greek sea adventure to Paros (adorable!) and Santorini, or another suggested itinerary. They even pack the coolers.
