Accommodation On Mykonos (Hotels, Apartments, Guesthouses, Rooms to let)


The choice is obvious: If you want to party all night long, then you will stay in Chora. If on the other hand you want to have some peace and quiet during the night, then you can stay in Ano Mera or in some other settlement of Mykonos. If you are not staying in Chora make sure that you have access to the beach. In case you want to avoid the fuss, nudists, beach bars, etc while taking your swim, be careful which beach you will be staying close to.
