1. Mykonos, its beaches and its atmospheres
Mykonos is a small island. You can cover Mykonos from one end to the other in just 40 minutes by car. However, there are completely different atmospheres on this island, and the choice of places to stay in Mykonos depends a lot on your expectations with regard to these atmospheres. Here is a summary of the different beaches and atmospheres of the island with some nice hotels and apartments in Mykonos!
1.1 Chora, the capital of Mykonos Island
Here are located the essentials of the island such as the area of Little Venice or the Windmills. What a pleasure to get lost in the alleys of Chora! There are also plenty of restaurants and shops here, and it is quite lively during the day and evening, especially in the summer months.
What to avoid? Accommodation in the small streets of Chora is not necessarily the ideal choice in high tourist season: lots of people, noise in the evening. On the other hand, as soon as you get a little further away from the crowded streets, it’s great!
Away from crowded streets. Island Mykonos Suites offers studios, but also apartments with balcony or terrace. Breakfast can be served in the rooms. The setting is idyllic, totally like what is expected of Mykonos!
Holiday home in the Little Venice area of Mykonos: the location is just exceptional! It is a perfect place to stay in Mykonos to enjoy the atmosphere of its capital. The house has one bedroom, a living room and a magnificent shaded terrace: Myconian Little Venice Elite Suite.

Paradise Beach, Super Paradise Beach. These three beaches are located 7km from Chora by car, and also 7km between them by car. These are perfect places to stay in Mykonos (or not sleep at all) to party!
Paraga Beach. Not far from here, just 2km from Paradise Beach, there is also Paraga Beach. Another place of the festive atmosphere of Mykonos!
