Visit These Beach Bars While on Mykonos Island
Comments Off on Visit These Beach Bars While on Mykonos Island
It’s true that Mykonos has a lot to offer its visitors. There is some gorgeous scenery here, including some of the best sunsets in all of Greece. The island also has plenty of landmarks and historical sites to visit, as well as plenty of nightlife to experience. For many, however, one of the highlights is to enjoy the thriving social scene on some of its busiest beaches. You won’t want to miss the chance to visit these beach bars while on the island:
Located on the popular Ftelia Beach, Alemagou is one of those bars that has all the charm of a typical Greek taverna. They are known for their traditional Greek recipes and their delicious cocktails. Visitors flock here to experience traditional Greek culture but with a simple, modern vibe. This establishment is always busy, and there is always music playing over the speakers to liven up the atmosphere.
Ftelia is another one of those bars that is located directly on Ftelia Beach. Most of this bar is located outside facing the beach and water, but it is also protected by a roof. There are some couches and seats that face the water. It is comfortable here and people often feel as if they are sitting on a large patio at someone’s home.
If you are looking for a beach bar that has a relaxed but hip vibe, you will want to take the time to visit Hippie Fish. Located at Agios Ioannis Beach, this place is both a restaurant and a bar. The menu features tasty Greek foods as well as an impressive list of cocktails and other beverages. Spend some time here overlooking the water and then make your way next door to explore in the shop before you head back to the beach.
Jackie O’ Beach Bar
Jackie Onassis, formerly known as Jaqueline Kennedy, is a worldwide cultural icon who married a wealthy Greek shipping magnate. Her legacy is celebrated here at the Jackie O’ Beach bar, which is located at Super Paradise Beach. The decor is fairly unique and modern and there is an “industrial edge” to the decor. This place has a good, international vibe and you will find both food and cocktails on the menu here.
Although most people associate Super Paradise Beach as one of the liveliest, Psarou Beach can easily rival it. Known as a fairly cosmopolitan beach, you won’t want to miss the chance to spend time here. While at the beach, consider stopping in on Nammos, which is one of the best beach bars in the area. Located right on the beach, feel free to sit in one of the beach chairs and order food and drink while you lounge in the sun.
Travel to Mykonos really took off in the 1950’s and 1960’s since it became one of the hippest places in the world for celebrities and other jet-setters to enjoy. Since then, the island has still maintained its fun, party going culture. These beach bars are definitely part of that scene and should top your own lists of things to do while here.
