Those who know “the (other) true Mykonos” hoard some valuable secrets and connoisseur obsessions, such as:
- A personal tour of Delos to unfold before you the charm of the ancient city, and a story full of money & glam!
- Diving at Tragonissi with Panagis’ boat, and ask him to take you to the cave where there is a hidden beach.
- An alternative sunset on the way towards Fanari-Agia Sophia when you camp at Faros.
- Fokos dam and the artificial lake on the way to the coast will reveal a scene of wild beauty and an exciting side of Mykonos.
Best sunrise: At Agios Sostis, along with your first swim of the day, after stopping at the bakery in Ano Mera for a cheese pie.
Windsurfer’s paradise: Ftelia and Kalafatis. So, fly on your surfboard.
Most minimal-chic courtyard in town: Nikos Varveris’ Interni, which combines impeccable aesthetics, light home-made delicacies and a superb bar where you can start the evening with a pineapple caipirinha, beautiful people and sophisticated music.
Best rock beats: First by far, Astra remains the best nest of the island’s fans – even the ‘old’ ones who, with a few exceptions, do not go to many places any more. From midnight to dawn, outside for cooling off and inside for crazy dancing and concept parties, throughout the summer.
Noontime live: Gigs take place all summer at Bahia Blanca in Kalo Livadi.
The best tavern by the beach: Tassos’ in Paranga. Super delicious home cooked dishes and grills, in beautiful surroundings, with years of history and prices that don’t cause indigestion.
The most beautiful beach restaurant: N’ammos at Psarou. The best beach service and fun; the Sunday Times includes in among the 10 best beaches in Europe for partying.
