Mykonos is the perfect honeymoon destination and that's why it's one of the top choices for newlyweds on the Mediterranean. It preserves its traditional whitewashed architecture, offers magnificent beaches, has an impressive number of beautiful hotels (see below), and is home to some unforgettable sunsets. That all gives it a romantic atmosphere, and then there are its picturesque pedestrian streets filled with shops and restaurants. Couples walk hand-in-hand after a day at the beach, and take selfies as they toast with a drink at one of the many hip bars. Whether you just got married, are celebrating an anniversary, or are simply going on a romantic getaway, you’ll be glad you chose Mykonos.
When choosing the best place to stay, you’ll probably want a hotel by the beach, but don’t overlook romantic Little Venice or the center of Mykonos Town. On such a special occasion, you probably won’t mind splurging on a little luxury and pampering, so consider a hotel with a spa for massage treatments (the majority of luxury hotels have them) and, of course, a honeymoon suite.
For a special day out and the best photos, consider going on a boat tour. Many of them pass by the most popular beaches, and you may also add activities like snorkeling.
End your day by the famous windmills and Little Venice for the most romantic sunset views. Then walk through the maze of streets around Little Venice, and you’ll find several perfect restaurants for a dinner for two.
The Most Romantic Beaches in Mykonos
Since you’ll probably be spending most of your time at the beach, make sure you go to the right one. If you prefer a livelier beach, choose Super Paradise. You’ll find it covered with sunbeds, so there’s not much space and privacy, but the water is just perfect and the views are beautiful. Alternatively, head to Panormos, a beach with sunbeds and a beach club atmosphere on one side, and wild and nudist-friendly on the other. If you enjoy swimming nude, this is the beach for you. If you’re a gay couple, you’ll probably be more comfortable at Elia. If you’re looking for peace and quiet, choose Agia Anna by Paraga.
Honeymoon Hotels in Mykonos
As a popular honeymoon destination, couples have lots of options in Mykonos when it comes to accommodation. If you want extra privacy or to prepare your own meals, consider an apartment or villa. For especially romantic hotels, look here:
It’s easy to see why this hotel (also known as Mykonos' "cave hotel") is the island's trendiest and most photographed.

There are rooms with sea views, and some have a hot tub or private pool. Everyone can also enjoy the outdoor infinity pool, the gym and the spa, as well as the Mediterranean restaurant.
