How to lose yourself in the magic of Mykonos
This magical island isn’t short of gorgeous accommodation options. From luxury Airbnb estates to big name hotel chains, the list is endless. However, one name continuously pops on must stay lists: Cavo Tagoo Hotel.
This high-end hotel offers upscale accommodations (some even come with private pools), a chic spa and an incredible infinity pool. With its proximity to Mykonos town - the island’s iconic hotspot for shopping and food, sea view rooms designed with comfort in mind and featuring minimal aesthetics, this is a must on our list!
We rarely say this, but it is VERY hard to have a “bad” experience in Mykonos when it comes to food. Ranging from fine dining to the infamous Jimmy’s Gyros, you really can enjoy a good meal at every turn. However, nothing embodies the Mykonos vibe as much as Kiki’s Taverna. Set off the beaten track, this eatery enjoys its own private bay in a relaxed and homey outdoor only setting. No reservations are allowed, so wait times can be grueling, especially when you are surrounded by the tantalizing scent of fresh fish and meat cooked on an open wood grill! No worries, grab something to drink and take a dip in the bay, and when your table is ready, the staff will call you while you laze on the beach. The mix of anticipation, authentic Greek vibes and food, will make you feel like you have finally arrived!
The Mykonos shopping scene is absolutely incredible, boasting several multi-brand boutiques that offer everything from Isabel Marant to Acne Studios, as well as several big name mono brands such as Chanel and Gucci. However, one store we keep coming back to is Luisa’s at Nammos Beach.
There is every expectation that at this boutique, inside the island’s most formidable beach club, you will walk out wearing what you buy. This stylish, one-of-a-kind destination where a laid-back, open-air lounge offers the setting for summer shopping, is truly unique. Luisa’s buyers don’t take any chances. Céline clutches share shelf space with Saint Laurent platforms, Isabel Marant microscopic skirts and Vetements tees.
At Luisa’s you can browse through the collections while taking in some of the island’s most unforgettable fashion parties. Or you can simply relax and enjoy the golden sands of Psarou beach.
Shopping here isn’t going to be inexpensive but with music playing from every corner of the club, gathering volume and pace late into the night, you know it’s going to be fun.
The island of Mykonos is quite small so a quick getaway to a neighboring island is your best bet if you are itching for a change of scene. Several ferries can connect you to different locations, but we highly recommend you hop on a speed ferry to Santorini, a 5-hour ride away. Do not miss the beautiful breathtaking views in Oia and the infamous black beach – these are just a few of the sites that Santorini has to offer.
