PHotos of popular beach clubs on Mykonos

— Updated on Monday May 23 —

 

The beaches beckon: Judging by the messages we’ve been receiving, and the posts we’ve been seeing on social media, substantially more people are heading to Mykonos for holidays a lot earlier this year than in the travel boom years preceding the pandemic — most likely to make up for vacation opportunities lost during Covid lockdowns and restrictions.

The island welcomed a trickle of tourists in February, and the flow of visitors rose steadily during March.  Advance bookings indicate that April arrivals could set a record. It’s a sharp contrast to pre-Covid times, when May 1 was traditionally considered the beginning of the travel season and few people considered going to Mykonos before then.

 

 

While most of the off-season and early spring travellers realize Mykonos is primarily a summer destination, and expect things to be fairly quiet during their visits, many have still been asking: Which beach clubs will be open?

It’s a question we find surprising, since it suggests many people just aren’t aware that Mykonos and the rest of Greece get blustery weather and cold temperatures in winter — and sometimes even snow (see our posts The powdery white Mykonos  beaches few tourists ever see and After the Elpis snowstorm if you don’t believe us). And though the temperature tends to warm up during April, early spring isn’t the best time to visit if beach activities like sunbathing and swimming are priorities. (August and September are the best months for that.)

For anyone going to Mykonos after mid-April, though, the good news is they might get to spend some time at a beach club or bar, if the weather is decent. Paradise beach club opens on April 12, Principote on April 20, Alemagou on the 21st, Nammos on the 29th, and Tropicana — also at Paradise beach — is starting its season on April 30. At Super Paradise beach, a brand-new spot, Paraj, is aiming to open by the end of April, too. Four other venues — JackieO’ Beach, Pinky Beach, Scorpios and SantAnna — have announced opening dates ranging from May 6 to 16. We expect more will be opening by mid-May, if not sooner, especially if tourist traffic continues to increase significantly.

To see which beach clubs and bars are opening and when, keep scrolling through this post. We have compiled this list of opening dates,  and will be adding venues as soon as they reveal when they plan to start their seasons. So check back for updates. We also have highlighted some new beach clubs that are expected to open this summer. Once they announce their official openings, we’ll update this post with that information.

What’s happening: Mykonos is in end-of-season mode, with bars, clubs and restaurants either closing up shop or preparing to wind down operations.

As usual, the last weekend of September is closing party time for numerous establishments, including Scorpios, Moni, The Garden, JackieO’ Beach, and Elysium Hotel’s popular Sunset Cabaret.

Parties are continuing at many bars in Mykonos Town, however, and beach parties are still going strong at Paradise beach, where Tropicana will be open until October 20.Page 2 of this post contains promotional flyers showing daily beach parties, regular weekly events and special event series. 

Page 3 lists events that have taken place since March, in case you’re interested in seeing what has already happened.

I update this post whenever new announcements are released, often several times per day, so check back regularly to see what’s new.

Mykonos restaurants 2015

Where to eat: Each year I receive scores of requests to offer restaurant recommendations for people planning to visit Mykonos. Since the 2015 travel season is officially underway with Holy Week celebrations for the Greek Orthodox Easter, it’s time for me to start rolling out my annual round-up of places to eat on Mykonos.

This is an informal “work in progress” list of Mykonos restaurants, cafés and tavernas that are either already open for business, or that have announced they will be opening within the next several weeks.

 

I will update this post regularly as I learn about more places that have opened their doors for the summer, so keep checking back for the latest restaurant additions. As of the latest update, this list includes more than 180 dining establishments.

Keep in mind that this is only a rough guide, and is by no means intended to be a comprehensive catalog of the myriad dining options available on Mykonos.  There are more than 400 places to eat on the island so, as a hobby blogger, I couldn’t possibly keep track of them all! But as you’ll quickly see from the listings, you never need to worry about going hungry on Mykonos — the island boasts a vast selection of restaurants ready to satisfy even the fussiest tastes and appetites.

For information about opening dates and special events for beach bars as well as clubs in Mykonos Town, see my post Mykonos beach parties, bar & club events for summer 2015.

 

Quick links to restaurants at specific parts of the island

2012 Greek holiday trip report: Mykonos Part 3

Remezzo area of Mykonos Town

All quiet on the northern front: Even though it was a gorgeous morning, very few people were out and about when I walked past the Remezzo area of Mykonos Town at 10 a.m.

 

 

[Editor’s Note: This is the latest instalment in a series of reports on my 2012 vacation. Those of you who have already read Part 1 and Part 2 may want to go back and take another look through those posts — I have added several videoclips to each part.]

 

 

Thursday May 17

 

Sounds of silence: My fourth day on Mykonos started off with brilliant sunshine and plenty of peace and quiet.

The breakfast room at Hotel Tagoo was almost empty, with just a handful of guests showing up during the time I was there. It seemed like most people were sleeping in to recover from either a late night on the town or too much fun at the beaches the day before.  Two guests who did make it down for breakfast told me that a friend of theirs from Mykonos would be taking them on an early afternoon driving tour around part of the island. They had room for a fourth person, and invited me to tag along. They planned to visit some beaches I had not seen in a few years, plus at least one I had never been to before, so I jumped at the opportunity to join them.

Since I had a few hours to fill before the island drive about, but didn’t feel like laying in the sun by the pool, I took a walk into town. The streets were surprisingly quiet and empty with practically no vehicular traffic and pedestrians. It was incredibly serene — and almost surreal  — hearing only birdsong and sound of my shoes on the pavement. I didn’t expect that, at 10 a.m., I would have most of the Tagoo area and much of Mykonos Town all to myself. A cruise ship was docked at Tourlos, so I fully expected to run into groups of tourists wandering around, but the parking area next to the Old Port (where the cruise ship shuttle buses drop passengers off) was eerily quiet. I passed fewer than a dozen people during my 10-minute walk between the port and Taxi Square.
