Mykonos Out of Town

We've been staying on Mykonos for years and tend to hang out in the hills, dipping into town occasionally. So these are the beaches and restaurants where we spend our time.

Lia Beach (Λιά)

My personal favourite beach on Mykonos. Unpretentious, big beds, great lunch menu and lovely ocean. If we talk about going to the beach, we come here. Beach is divided into 2: Lia and Liasti - both have beach clubs. Lia is more low-key and delivers good, authentic food to your bed but has no eat in restaurant.

Agia Anna Beach (Αγία Άννα)

Very sweet little beach club on the water with a sandy beach. Space is a premium but nice place to go for walks over the rocks, have lunch at Spilia and jump off the cliffs into the ocean below.

Spilia

Slightly grown up vibe, very chic but a lovely lunch destination overlooking the water. We come for lunch here when we go to the beach at Agia Anna.

modern greek restaurant Κυκλάδες

Alemàgou

Awesome, Burning Man kind of vibe LOL, right on the beach. Food in restaurant is fine but really we come for the atmosphere and the sundowners. Music is excellent and open bonfires are very atmospheric. Love this place.

Ano Mera (Άνω Μερά)

Lovely small town close to Lia Beach. A good spot to come and mooch around. There is a supermarket, a nail bar - the Ninnolo's ice cream outpost and numerous tavernas and so on for lunch or dinner. We come here for the pharmacy too and she has treated all our ailments on the island including pulling spines from a sea urchin out of my sons foot.

Limnios

We call this the lamb chop place and it used to be called Koutouki. Traditional home-cooking where my Greek friend has been coming for years and years and another friend's art adorns the walls. The food is delicious and we always seem to come here in a big group for a Greek feast.

Vardaris

Street food style, simple taverna. The children order honey balls for pudding and we all watch the world go by while they play in the square.

Scorpios Mykonos

BANDANNA Ristorante Italiano pizzeria

Lovely, local Italian. We come here for the pizzas in the evening. Close to Kalafati / Agia Anna but inland. Countless evenings spent here eating and drinking.
