If you’re in the middle of planning your summer vacation and you’re wondering what accommodation to book, here is a little guide to what is the best part of Mykonos to stay in. It all depends on your needs and interests – not that there is a bad area to stay in on this magical island in Greece.
When tourists decide to visit Mykonos, Greece, they usually opt to stay in the Old Town. Undoubtedly, Chora is one of the most beautiful places on the island, and it’s filled with great hotels and even better luxury Mykonos villas you can stay in. Everything looks like it’s straight out of a movie, and once you take a walk along the paved streets of Chora, you will understand why it’s so popular among tourists who want to visit Greece.
The streets are narrow and small, surrounded by whitewashed stone buildings with wooden blue accents everywhere. There are lots of trees, flowers, and seating areas, and the Old Town truly is the heart and soul of the island since you can find anything you need there – from local shops to designer boutiques to the best restaurants and great bars. It’s the perfect location if you’re visiting this magical Greek island for the first time, as all the important attractions are nearby.
If you want to stay in the most romantic and magical part of the Old Town, then Little Venice is the right place for you. It’s by far the most picturesque part of The Island of the Winds, and what makes it so special is the fact that it is heavily influenced by Italian architecture, making the area breathtaking.
Little Venice is located in the very center of Chora, and it’s unique because of the old Italian-style colorful houses that stand out from the rest of the white and blue buildings. There are countless villas, shops, and restaurants you can enjoy in the area.
If you’re not that much into the party scene and you want to spend some quality time in nature, discovering more about the Greek culture, then you will want to book one of the Greek villas Mykonos has to offer in Ano Mera village.
If you want some silence and a relaxing vacation, Ano Mera is just the place for you. It’s located on a hill, just 15 minutes away from Chora, and breathtaking views of the sunset are guaranteed.
People who are looking for some peace and quiet usually like to stay near a calm beach. This goes for people who are traveling with family and small children, as well as for those who just want to get away from the crazy party scene. So, here are some of the best quiet beach areas people most often choose to stay in.
Everyone knows that hidden places are always the best – Agios Ioannis is a beautiful, secluded, family-friendly beach perfect for people looking for some peace and quiet. It’s not crowded with tourists, and it offers the best scuba diving on the island, so it’s a very popular choice for tourists.
People traveling with kids usually choose to stay near Platys Gialos Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in the southern part of the island. Platys Gialos is very long with fine sand, it has great options for food, and it’s very calm.
Agios Stefanos is one of the most popular beaches – it looks like it came out of a magazine, and it’s only 4 km away from Chora. The water is shallow and blue, and the sand is golden and soft. It’s great for family vacations, and it’s very popular for water sports. You can go scuba diving or rent a jet ski and have some fun.
If you want to spend a few sleepless nights in some of the hottest clubs in the world and spend your days drinking champagne and dancing in great beach bars such as the Kalua Beach Bar, then you need to stay near Paraga Beach.

It’s also called Paranga, and it’s very close to the popular Paradise Beach, also known for some wild parties.
