Mykonos is famous for its' superb restaurants and nightclubs! It is simply impossible to get bored, as there are numerous options for all tastes. One can choose from the traditional mediterranean tavernas to the iconic sushi restaurant (Matsuhisa-Belvedere Hotel). In Mykonos town, both hip nightclubs, where international DJs offer their program and chic lounge bars with eclectic music, stay open literally all night long. Shopping is quite exciting too, as it is part of the night life as well. Mykonos boasts an amazing number of outstanding sandy beaches, with at least 30 of those easily accessible. As a result there is one for every taste: From organized and cosmopolitan ones to quiet ones or wilder ones, perfect for windsurfers. With beach service or without. For families or for nudists. Everyone I know, has his/her own favorite! And if those are not enough, one can rent a small boat and enjoy a day in complete privacy, only half an hour away, in Rinia island, the twin island of Delos. Delos island, is a rare archaeological gem, as it is a sacred ancient town, that has remained untouched since antiquity, with no inhabitants! A definite must-see!
Children can have a lot of fun during the day swimming, snorkeling, waterskiing, water tubing etc. There is a go-kart track 10' away by car, that all children adore. If they love paintball, they can play in Ftelia beach, again 5-10' away by car. Horse riding is also offered from a small company in Ano Mera, which is the closest village and shopping area to our property, 4 km away or 5' drive by car.
Ano Mera is where we normally buy all our fresh fruits and vegetables. There exists also a supermarket, a pharmacy, an ATM machine and a gas station. The village has a children-friendly casual atmosphere with many tavernas located on the local square. Ano Mera has also a beautiful church and charming old 18th century monastery, that one must visit.
Our property is located on Elia beach, in the area with the most amazing beaches on the island. Elia is sandy, with crystal clear waters and with good organization and service, ski school and water sports. You can walk to the Taverna Elia, which is centrally located and offers a big variety of excellent greek and international cuisine. The owners are friendly, polite and professional. They will take very good care of you, especially if you say you are our guests. I highly recommend to rent the beach loungers and umbrella in front of their restaurant, if you care to do so. They can even reserve a space for you all the way to the front, if getting up very early is not your style.
Other excellent beaches within a 5-15' drive radius are: Kalo Livadi, Kalafatis, Agia Anna, Agrari and Lia beach. All of them offer shaded loungers and beach service. With the exception of Agrari, they also have very good beach restaurants and tavernas. Kalafatis has also a wind surfing school, a scuba diving school and water sports.
Finally, next to our property, there is a 5 star hotel, the Myconian Imperial Resort. There you can book a massage, Thalassotherapie or SPA treatment, by calling their reception. It will only take you 2' by car to get there.
