If your favourite thing to do on holiday is take to the beach, lay on the golden sand and listen to the ebb and flow of the turquoise sea as it caresses the beach, why not take it to the next level and spend a day at a beach club. Laze on a comfy sun bed, in the welcome shade of an canopy, eat lunch at the club’s restaurant and have drinks bought to your bed by the waiters. No need to pack towels or a picnic, it’s all there for you. Just rock up, take your place, read your book and while away the hours in supreme comfort. Here are 5 Mykonos beach clubs that hit the spot.
When nature becomes the inspiration and a group of envisioned men come together, magic can happen. It all started in 2003 in a quiet cove of iconic Mykonian beauty. On the beach of Psarou, an embryonic seaside restaurant emerged that has became legendary. Refined tastes, summer entertainment and the style and ambience of the pure Mediterranean spirit were united. A story coloured in turquoise, sprinkled with the tastes of the Aegean Sea and flavoured with the aroma of sophistication, in short Nammos was born and continues to spread her wings.
Nammos embarked from Mykonos on a fascinating journey across the world. She reached deserts, mountain peaks, dreamy coasts, and now aims to bring the light of summer to the streets of a metropolis. Courchevel, Dubai, Riyadh, Cannes, London. Where’s next?

The beachside lair encompasses a sandy beach, open-plan restaurant, and sunset beach for Scorpios’ music rituals. Given the popularity of Scorpios it’s always wise to book ahead.

Not exactly the typical Mykonos beach you’d expect but a boho haven so authentic that you’ll think you landed in Mexico. Taking inspiration from typical Cycladic architectural elements such as whitewashed, smooth-edged houses; dry-stone walls that blend into the scrubby landscape; practical, hardwearing screed floors; and natural reed-thatched roof insulation, the familiar textures are applied to contemporary, organic forms to create a unique character.
Added to the palate are the dominating natural conditions of the site: the strong winds that make this beach a surfer’s paradise; the burning 40-degree midday sun and the harsh, dry, rocks of the encroaching landscape. Rather than attempting to block the effects of these natural forces, the design welcomes them, embracing their qualities and turning them to its advantage. The combination of these purposely designed and naturally occurring elements creates a multi-sensory architecture that sits in harmony with the environment, provides a natural, comfortable refuge from the elements and creates an exciting, sociable atmosphere.

There is a place. Which is so much more than a venue. That place is JackieO’ Mykonos. A vibe, an aura. A state of mind. Known but unknown. Ordinary but extraordinary. Picturesque but unique. Blue but a thousand shades of blue. Quiet but lively. Solitary but friendly. Which has the taste of the Cyclades but the flavours of East and West. Which loves the morning, but falls in love with the evening. See the blue, but see its myriad hues, Hear the sound of the sea, but hear the thousand summer melodies. Touch the sand, but touch cotton, linen, silk. Taste the cuisine of the Cyclades, but taste the blend of Eastern and Western flavours. Smell the breezes from the sea but smell the breeze of the island too, of its people, its soul. Feel the day’s energy, but also feel the seductive magic of the night. Experience the island’s vibes and a world of its own calling you to a journey into the different, the unknown.
Located at Super Paradise Beach, JackieO’ Mykonos invites you to experience the unexpected! Experience the island’s best sunset at JackieO’ Mykonos Town Bar, below the famous church of Paraportiani.
