A fabulous hotel on the beach? With character, charm and glamor?
Why not! You’re visiting Mykonos, after all!
We stayed at some of the best beach hotels in Mykonos. And we’ve scouted out several more luxury Mykonos hotels that also boast to-die-for beach locations.
Now, Mykonos may not be a secret gem or even one of the most unique places to visit in Greece – but it is one of the most sophisticated Greek islands.
And when you go, you deserve to bed down in one of the best Mykonos beach resorts, right?
Chic Mykonos, Greece, beach hotels (a great reason to visit Mykonos!)
Ever since Homer penned Odysseus’ epic odyssey, Mykonos has enticed travelers.
Today, Mykonos is the chichi island – the one jetsetters and celebs escape to when visiting Greece.
A slice of cool in the hot blue Aegean, it boasts exciting nightlife, sybaritic sandy beaches and seriously hip hotels.
And then there are all the colorful tavernas and great restaurants in Mykonos town (or Chora).
A maze of whitewashed cubist buildings, the town buzzes at night with lively restaurants and bars.
But it’s those beaches that are probably the main reason you’re visiting this wonderful Greek island.
After all, you’ve already checked out the museums, the Acropolis and other cultural things to do in Athens.
Now it’s time to chill. So it’s only natural you want a hotel on the beach when looking at where to stay in Mykonos. (And if there’s one thing we know, it’s posh hotels!)
And don’t worry, some beach hotels on Mykonos are away from the party action. You can immerse yourself in the party scene when you want, but also retreat for quiet beach time too.
A few enticing things to do in Mykonos
Before we get to those great Mykonos resorts on the beach, let’s take a closer look at the island’s appeal and some of the best places to visit in Mykonos.
Explore Mykonos town
You’re bound to stroll about the cosmopolitan Mykonos town – and inevitably get lost.
It’s an enchanting mix of narrow cobblestone streets, blue-shuttered houses, jewelry shops, chic clothing boutiques and cute cafés.
In the Little Venice area, balconies of the bars and alfresco restaurants hang out over the sea.
Snag a balcony table, and you look out at the landmark Mykonos windmills standing watch over the harbor.
See Super Paradise Beach
Be sure to take one of the colorful old wooden taxi boats to the beautiful beaches of Mykonos on the south coast.
From Ornos Bay, you putter along for an hour, past rocky cliffs and idyllic coves, to Super Paradise beach – the beach with the wildest reputation.
Crowding the outside restaurant bars, the bronzed and beautiful drink champagne and nibble on lobster, as music throbs loudly and Taylor Swift lookalikes in string bikinis dance on tables.
At the other end of the beach, nude and gay sun worshipers swim in crystalline waters.
It’s fun to see – even if you don’t join in.
(Garbed in sun-protecting, long-sleeve shirts and pants for walking the beach, we looked a tad out of place. But as die-hard travel writers, and in the name of research, we of course had to see for ourselves what Super Paradise Beach was all about!)
Anyway, you really can’t go to Mykonos and not check out its famous beaches.
If you’d like to take the stress out of getting to Super Paradise Beach in time to snag a beach chair, you can pre-book a sunbed at Divine Beach Bar under an umbrella. (You’ll be offered beach towels to use while you’re there too.)
Tour the island of Delos
Down by the harbor, excursion boats leave for half-day guided tours of nearby uninhabited Delos island.
A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Delos is one huge archaeological site, with ruins dating back to 300 BC.
If you’re traveling with friends or family, this top-notch private tour of Delos includes hotel transfers and a passionate tour guide who brings the ancient island city to life for you.
Alternatively, you might like this guided island tour with Delos Travel includes hotel pick-up on Mykonos, your return boat ride and skip-the-line tickets.
You can also explore both Delos and Rhenia islands on a top-rated full-day cruise from Mykonos.
You sail on a traditional gulet, visit Delos (with a guided Delos tour option), swim at remote beaches on Rhenia Island and enjoy a delicious Greek barbecue.
23 Best beach hotels in Mykonos, Greece
Okay, now that you have a bit of an idea of what to do in Mykonos, here are the top beachfront hotels and resorts.
Ornos Bay + Ornos Beach hotels, Mykonos
Ornos Beach, with its golden sand and turquoise sea, is known for its calm bath-like waters (the best place to bring your kids).
It’s only a few miles from the center of Mykonos town. You can get there via water taxi, adding a layer of adventure to the day.
There are quite a few tavernas on the beach, so you can get your munch on with your feet in the sand.
It’s the best area to stay in Mykonos if you’re traveling with the family. But we also loved the area, and we were traveling as a couple.
What started out as a holiday home for a Greek architect/designer and his family is now an exquisite boutique hotel in Mykonos with an enchanting bohemian vibe.
Perched serenely over Ornos Bay, the Kivotos hotel is unique.
Marble steps wind past garden courtyards, fountains and two swimming pools (where kittens nap on a couch in the sun and budgies chirp in hanging cages).
They eventually lead to a private beach area, with cushioned teak sunbeds set on the rock and pebble beach.
Lots of nooks and crannies offer other private spots for soaking up the sun or relaxing.
Housed within white plaster and stone villas, each of the 43 rooms and suites is an individually decorated work of art.
Our delightfully eclectic suite had exposed beam ceilings, Venetian glass chandeliers, a mosaic tiled bathroom with a beveled glass door (and deluxe Bulgari toiletries) and a large stone balcony framed by gauzy curtains.
Some suites even have private pools.
The Kivotos Signature Suite’s pool has a front wall made of glass.
The buffet breakfast, included in the rate, is to be savored.
There’s champagne and fresh squeezed juices; eggs and bacon; lox and cheeses; a sweet selection of chocolate banana tart, baklava and sugar cookies; and silver baskets of raisin cream pastries and croissants.
There’s even a hot chocolate sauce fountain for dipping pineapple chunks.
Whether you prefer to have breakfast outside on the terrace or inside (seated on a Louis XIV chair at a marble table), both options offer sweeping views of the sapphire blue sea – the perfect start to a fabulous day in Mykonos.
From the welcome glass of champagne to the deluxe Bulgari toiletries, Kivotos radiates glam – easily making it one of the best luxury hotels in Mykonos on the beach.
Just don’t go topless at Kivotos. We’re specifically referring to ladies here, of course!
One of the fun facts about Greece is that topless suntanning is allowed pretty well everywhere on Mykonos beaches.
But hotels can prohibit the practice around their pools and private beach areas. And Kivotos would prefer that you keep your bikini top on.
Also be aware: Ornos town (where Kivotos is located) is quiet. For nightlife, you have to head into Mykonos town.

2) Santa Marina Resort & Villas
Traveling with children? Santa Marina is one of the few Mykonos beach resorts that is family-friendly.
In July and August, a free supervised all-day kids program is offered for ages three to 12.
Part of the Luxury Collection (by Marriott), the resort is laid out like a Greek village in cubic white washed buildings.
The 101 guest rooms and suites come with contemporary furnishings, marble or mosaic-tiled bathrooms, super comfy king-size beds (many Mykonos hotels have queen beds only) and lovely sea views.
The luxurious accommodation options also include 13 villas (ranging from two- to seven-bedroom villas), each with a kitchen and private pool.
But the resort’s most brag-worthy feature? The long curve of private golden sand beach – possibly the best beach in Mykonos.
Tucked away in a sheltered cove, the beach provides an unrivaled spot for swimming and lounging.
It’s the only private beach on Mykonos that’s a sand beach – and it can’t be beat!
When hunger strikes, wander over to the resort’s sophisticated Buddha-Bar Beach restaurant.
The specialty is oh-so-fresh grilled fish. (The chef buys seafood from fishing boats that come to the resort’s dock each day.)
Go Greek with a fashionably late lunch – and you can watch the setting sun melt like liquid gold into the sea.
(The only thing to note is that you have to walk down lots of stairs from the top of the hotel to get to the swimming beach. We thought of it as a little “forced” exercise.)
Like Kivotos, Santa Marina is located in Ornos town. So if you want to party, you have to head into Mykonos town, a short bus or taxi ride away.
A free shuttle does depart regularly for nearby Mykonos town, however.
If you’re looking for a luxurious experience at one of Mykonos’ 5-star beach hotels, this resort is the perfect retreat for both couples and families.

3) Mykonos Blanc
Mykonos Blanc whispers beachfront luxury at its finest – it’s another one of the best beach hotels in Mykonos.
Its white-on-white décor is a minimalist’s dream, without missing any of the sumptuous touches you’d expect from a high-end beachfront hotel.
The trendy hotel has 42 rooms, most with sea views. Book a room with a private pool for the utmost in lavish vacations.
Pasaji, the upscale beach club and restaurant, has loungers reserved for guests, so you won’t have to fight for a place to sit during the high season.
If you’re a pool baby, not to worry. The saltwater pool fronts the beach, so you can get that beachy vibe without getting sand in your bathing suit.
For the mobility challenged, the hotel has wheelchair-accessible rooms.
With its superb beachfront location, sophisticated minimalist décor and sumptuous amenities, this resort stands out among Mykonos luxury hotels on the beach.

5) Adorno Beach Hotel & Suites
This new boho-Greek-chic hotel, just steps from the beach, offers a fitness center, pool, restaurant and sun terrace.

Start your morning pampered with a floating breakfast in your private pool, and then head to the spa for a massage.
Or better yet, never leave your room and have the masseuse come to you.
Adorno Beach Hotel, Mykonos: Check rates and availability
Platis Gialos Beach hotels
Platis Gialos Beach is one of the best beaches on the island. So it’s no surprise that it also has some of the best hotels on the beach in Mykonos.
Located about three miles south of Chora on the southwest part of the island, it’s a main stop for water taxis.
Lively and fun, Platis Gialos Beach has plenty of restaurants and bars to keep you there all day.
Its pale golden sand is packed with loungers, and it’s a good choice for families and people who like to be in the thick of it.
6) Branco Mykonos
This intimate boutique Mykonos hotel opened in 2017.
One of the best beachfront hotels in Mykonos, the hotel Branco Mykonos has 21 luxury seaview rooms.
The décor sports poured concrete floors and lots of gray stone and pale woods.
Outside, a spacious covered terrace boasts a sunken beachfront pool right on the sands of Platis Gialos Beach. Shaded pool beds offer the perfect spot for lounging while listening to chill pool music.
This 5-star Mykonos hotel prides itself on doing everything just right. And judging by other Branco Mykonos reviews, they pretty well satisfy most guests.
(By the way, unlike many other Mykonos hotels, a breakfast buffet isn’t included in the rates here; everything is à la carte.)

7) Petasos Beach Resort & Spa
Petasos Beach Resort, another member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, sits on a private peninsula overlooking the sparkling sea, with mega yachts bobbing in the not-so-far distance.
Choose from lounging comfortably on the private beach or by the saltwater bi-level pool that faces it.
There’s a pool bar and two open-air restaurants with fusion cuisine. A DJ spins nightly at the aptly named V.I.P. Restaurant that dangles over the Aegean.
Stay in one of the newly renovated rooms with a sea view, spa tub and steam room, or splurge for one with a private infinity pool.
And make sure you enjoy at least one of the 60+ spa treatment options available at the hotel’s Aqua Marine Spa to find your ultimate Zen.
Yes, Petasos is one dreamy Mykonos luxury hotel on the beach!
Petasos Beach Resort, Mykonos: Check rates and availability
8) Mykonos Dove Beachfront Hotel
A true getaway, Mykonos Dove is another of the best Mykonos hotels on the beach.
Walk out of your room, and your toes will be in the sand in seconds. No rocks, ladders or stairs to climb or descend.
You can book a room or a suite, even one with a private pool. The generous suites are modern and minimalist, with large balconies.
The hotel provides sunbeds, umbrellas, towels and electronic chargers on the beach free for guests. In addition, the Anios Pool Bar is between the beach and pool, so you’ll have endless views no matter where you sit.
But if lying by the pool or beach bores you, the hotel will set up jet ski rides, water skiing and even flyboarding lessons.
Although, with its idyllic setting, this Mykonos beach hotel is a Shangri-la you might not want to leave.

9) Thalassa Boutique Hotel
Thalassa Boutique Hotel is a little slice of paradise – and one of the most incredible luxury resorts in Mykonos.
Its adults-only rooms are soundproofed, so you can indulge in a soothing night’s sleep (or feel free to do whatever else you have in mind).
Built on the beach’s edge, the beautiful earth-toned rooms have balconies or swimming pools, just steps away from the private beach area reserved for hotel guests.
Order an exotic cocktail to sip while you lounge on your sunbed listening to the waves.
Or maybe indulge in an in-room massage?
After a day at the beach or pool, dine at the on-site Japanese restaurant. Or order some sushi poolside.

This beachfront hotel features king beds, private balconies and Aegean views from every room.
How about a private jacuzzi? Or a pool sparkling at night? Or a hammam? You can have it all at Petinos.
The white-on-white rooms have pops of color while keeping with the Cycladic aesthetic. The balconies are ideal for your morning coffee or complimentary breakfast overlooking the sea.
Are you a beach or a pool person? With the beach just steps away from the pool, you can have the best of both worlds.
Go from cocktails on the beach to fine dining with a bar and two restaurants to choose from.
Petinos Beach Hotel, Mykonos: Check rates and availability
Agios Ioannis Beach, Mykonos, hotels
Where to stay on Mykonos if you’re looking for an excellent location to get away from it all? Agios Ioannis Beach.
The small beach of Agios Ioannis is one of the more remote beaches on this list, and therefore, one of the quietest.
Located about three miles southwest of Chora, it’s a narrow strip of sand with a few hotels and restaurants – no beach clubs or water sports.
11) Mykonos Grand Hotel & Resort
Built in tiers over the beach, this luxury boutique hotel is one of a kind.
Its romantic yet minimalist design focuses on bringing attention to its magnificent natural surroundings.
The large outdoor pool (saltwater) has loads of super plush daybeds to lounge at if you’re not playing squash or tennis on the hotel’s courts. Or getting a massage in your camel-and-white palette room.
Two restaurants offer libations and palate pleasers, from the casual poolside Aqua e Sole to the finer Dolphins of Delos, where breakfast is served.
Splurge for one of the suites with private seaview infinity pools, soaking tubs and star gazing telescopes.
The Mykonos Grand is possibly the best beach hotel in Mykonos for those who want a quiet beach setting; spacious accommodations; truly helpful service; and access to sports like tennis, yoga and pilates.
Mykonos Grand Hotel: Check rates and availability
11) Bill & Coo Coast Suites
This cliff edge hotel offers a sanctuary overlooking the sea. The 10-acre oasis with gardens of lavender, olive trees and prickly pear is barefoot luxury at its finest.
There’s no spa at this hotel, but you can go to its sister hotel Bill & Coo Suites and Lounge, on the edge of Mykonos town, to get yourself a day of pampering.
With only 15 spacious rooms, the attention to detail is outstanding.
The suites are truly exceptional. Each features a balcony with breathtaking views of the Aegean Sea and Delos Island.
The larger suites go the extra mile with hot tubs, plunge pools and spacious terraces.
You’ll be satiated from day one with three restaurants to choose from, including Beefbar Mykonos, one of the most talked about spots on the island.

13) Anax Resort & Spa
With a romantic and relaxed atmosphere, Anax Resort and Spa is a hidden oasis on this cosmopolitan island.
It’s perched above a private beach, with two saltwater infinity pools and a large jacuzzi with sweeping Aegean views.
Rooms and suites are individually decorated.
The best room is the Anax Suite, with an unheated private pool and 800 sq. ft. of earth-toned indulgence.
However, if you’re traveling in cooler months, go for the Luxury Beachfront Suite, which has the only heated outdoor jacuzzi on site.
The stylish and sophisticated Kyma restaurant serves Mediterranean fare and offers a well-thought-out wine list. The Neraki Sunset Bar serves light bites and lunch for something more casual.
Due to the steep descent, there’s a free shuttle service to take you to the beach.
Anax Resort, Mykonos: Check rates and availability
14) Saint John Hotel Villas & Spa

There are two- and three-bedroom suites and a five-room villa for larger families. You’ll also find a kid’s pool, jacuzzi and pool bar, all steps from the sea.
For a quiet reprieve from the world around you, spend a peaceful day on the sunbeds on the private beach just beneath the large infinity pool.
The hotel has four restaurants.
You won’t have to leave the premises to eat out – from poolside casual to gourmet fine dining, there are on-site options to please everyone.
Aphrodite’s Spa offers more ways to soothe your mind, body and soul, including a 24k gold facial.
Saint John Hotel, Mykonos: Check rates and availability
Psarou Beach hotels
Psarou Beach is perhaps the most upscale beach on Mykonos – a fine stretch of golden sand, lined with sunbeds, restaurants and watersports centers.
Located about three miles from Chora town, it’s next to Platis Gialos beach.
But while Platis Gialos is a wide, buzzy, golden-sand beach, Psarou is less crowded, nestled in a tranquil bay and shielded from the wind by the surrounding cliffs.
15) Mykonos Blu
Walk down outdoor stone stairs to reach this hotel’s private piece of beautiful Psarou Beach.
And when you tire of the beach – how could you! – settle back on a lounger by the two-level infinity pool and marvel at the spectacular sea views.
Cubist in design, the whitewashed Grecotel Mykonos Blu has 103 suites and bungalows with beach-chic interiors. Some have their own private pools.
Exclusive Eau de Grece toiletries are from Grecotel’s own brand of Cretan organic products (made from olive oil, fennel and sage).

16) Nissaki Boutique Hotel
The beauty of staying at Nissaki Boutique Hotel is that it straddles both Platis Gialos and Psarou beaches.
But if the choice of two beaches doesn’t do it for you, the three pools probably will. Relax in the infinity pool with a glass of rosé while watching the sunset.
The luxury rooms range in size, but all have jacuzzis and ocean views.
The Nissaki VIP Suite even has a large indoor and an outdoor jacuzzi, in case one wasn’t enough. Decorated in neutral tones, the 430 sq. ft. suite also has a splendid balcony to drink your bubbly on.

Other top Mykonos hotels on the beach
There are incredible beaches all around Mykonos – from Elia Beach, the island’s longest beach with a secluded nudist section, to Paradise, the biggest party beach.
So, you’re going to have to go beach hopping to find your perfect spot. It’s a hard job, but we’re sure you’re up to it!
The following are some more amazing beachfront hotels in Mykonos.
17) The Wild Hotel by Interni
Not far from Kalafatis Beach in Mykonos’ southeastern corner, this cliffside hotel offers seclusion and privacy for the most discerning traveler. It’s blessed with a private beach below.

The Signature Suite with its plunge pool and impressive sea view is private enough to tell everyone you went skinny dipping in Mykonos.
Ready to leave your room?
Head to the long slinky infinity pool dotted with day beds, or walk down the steps to the beach. There, thatched shade parasols blend into the cliffs behind, providing the perfect spot to unwind.
The spa is also worth mentioning.

It all adds up to one of the finest Mykonos luxury resorts!

18) Myconian Korali
Now this 5-star Myconos resort isn’t right on the beach. It’s a 5-minute walk away from Megali Ammos Beach.
But as a Relais & Chateaux retreat, it makes up for that with a ton of deluxe comforts.
You’re treated to a free breakfast with champagne. And amenities include a thalassotherapy spa and outdoor swimming pool with panoramic views of the Aegean Sea, not to mention the hotel’s gourmet restaurant.
Some of its luxury rooms and suites have private jacuzzis or private plunge pools too.
The other plus to staying at the Myconian Korali is that you’re walking distance to Mykonos town (15 minutes away) – so you’re close to hopping nightlife, eateries and legendary shopping.
The hotel’s restaurant, Baos, is the spot for fine dining with great views. The farm-to-table cuisine highlights local ingredients.
The tasting menus are highly recommended.
Selections may include citrus-marinated scallops, octopus with split pea purée and lobster with cauliflower sauce and truffle. Are you drooling yet?

19) Grace Mykonos
We stayed at the Grace Santorini, the sister property, and they had to pry us out of there on our last day.
The Grace Mykonos is all about spoiling its guests.
Located above the sandy beach of Agios Stefanos, this intimate hotel with only 32 rooms has a spa and swoon-worthy views.
The Grace Suite is the best room with a heated, indoor-outdoor, private plunge pool.

20) Myconian Villa Collection
One of the best resorts in Mykonos for a villa stay, the Myconian Villa Collection is snuggled into the hillside above Elia Bay.
The whitewashed 5-star villas have uninterrupted views of the Aegean Sea.
Playfully decorated with splashes of rose and nude colors, they come with large verandas featuring private aquamarine infinity pools or jacuzzis.
The main saltwater infinity pool seems to flow seamlessly into the sea as it nearly abuts it. And the oversized sunbeds in black or pink are made for snoozing.
The Infinity Bar serves snacks and salads, in addition to the finer things in life like champagne, sea urchins, caviar and oysters.
If you’d rather lounge with your feet in the sand, your private sunbed awaits. There’s a free shuttle to the beach from the top of the hill, so you won’t break a sweat.
Myconian Villa Collection: Check rates and availability
21) Nomad Mykonos
Nomad Mykonos is an adult’s only hideaway near Kalo Livadi Bay, with barefoot poshness at its soul.
It’s one of the best luxury hotels on Mykonos, so we had to write about it. It’s not right at a beach though, but a short walk away (from Kalo Livadi Beach).
It’s a small hotel with only 14 suites that seamlessly blend indoor with outdoor. Each suite comes with a private pool or outdoor jacuzzi.
The opulent Cave Suite gets our attention.
Decorated in marble, it’s 645 sq. ft. inside and 861 outside. It has a stone bathtub and a private pool that flows from inside to outside. Pretty sweet!
What to do?
Float in a hammock over the main pool with your handcrafted cocktail from the mixology bar.
When the sun goes down, take a culinary voyage at Kukulu. Then retreat to the outdoor fireplace and watch the stars light up the night sky.
Nomad Mykonos: Check rates and availability
22) Casa del Mar
The 11 world-class villas at Casa del Mar are tucked away on Glyfadi, a private cove on the Aleomandra Peninsula on the southwestern shore of Mykonos.
Each sea-facing villa allows you to fall asleep to the sound of the waves.
They range in size from a 645 sq. ft. honeymoon villa for two right up to a whopping 6,780 sq. ft. pad that sleeps 18 people.
Some have private pools, others have jacuzzis. And they all have fully equipped kitchens.
Steps from your villa is a secluded private beach with cushy sun loungers to laze away the day.
Need to get out of the sun?
Head to the indoor saltwater pool and thermal water spa, the luxurious hammam or the spa for an exotic treatment.

23) Myconian Imperial
This large hotel features a light and airy design, with quirky details like sculptures of white hippos and rabbits scattered about.
It’s lavish but not ostentatious and a member of the Leading Hotels of the World.
With 112 rooms, the Myconian Imperial is one of the biggest and best beach resorts in Mykonos.
Some 15 rooms have private pools, while another 14 have outdoor hot tubs. All the rooms are simply decorated in white with Cycladic blue bursts of color.
A massive lagoon-style pool is sliced into two. And a swim-up bar surrounded by cozy loungers offers mesmerizing sea views.
The private beach area on Elia Beach is mere steps below the outdoor pool.
Mykonos hotels with private beach (or private beach area)
When it comes to exclusive, you can’t beat a private hotel beach. No daytrippers. No looky-loos. Just hotel guests who’ve paid a pretty penny (like you) for the luxury of chilling on their own private beach, away from the masses.
And as you’ve surmised by now, some of the most deluxe Mykonos hotels do indeed have their own private beaches!
Other top hotels in Mykonos offer the next best thing – a private slice of beach paradise on a public beach.
These private sections are reserved just for hotel guests and offer beach chairs and umbrellas, and depending on the hotel, may have a beach club with drinks and food service too.
Then there are the hotels reviewed above that are on the beach (or a hop, skip and a jump away) which don’t have private beach areas reserved exclusively for guests.
So you’d need to pay for beach chairs and umbrellas here – or just shake out your towel on the sand to lie out in the sun.
Below is the list of hotels we’ve covered in this Mykonos blog post that offer private beach club services.
Best time to visit Mykonos?
July and August are the busiest months in Mykonos.
In our view, September is the best time to visit Mykonos. The water is still deliciously warm for swimming, and the crowds aren’t as crazy.
How to get to Mykonos
Close to Athens, Mykonos is easy to visit.
From the mainland port of Rafina, high-speed ferries depart daily for Mykonos.
Most deluxe Mykonos hotels (including the first two featured here) provide complimentary transportation to and from the ferry dock or airport.
That’s it for the best Mykonos beach hotels!
The Greek Island of Mykonos is renowned for its beaches, parties and high standards of hospitality.
It’s not easy choosing the best hotels to stay in Mykonos on the beach. But hopefully we’ve helped you narrow down your choices for your dream Greek vacation.
