A Guide to Mykonos – World of Wanderlust

July 22, 2022

Located in the centre of the Cyclades archipelago, Mykonos is one of the most famous Greek islands for its cosmopolitan atmosphere and lively nightlife! The windswept isle possesses a mysterious magnetism and singular charm that is hard to resist. Imagine having the glamour of St. Tropez and the party atmosphere of Ibiza all rolled into one! But put that aside and you’ll find idyllic beaches, romantic whitewashed houses overlooking the sparkling waters and warm Greek hospitality that you will not find anywhere else. We have put together our favourite places to grab a drink while you are there!



On the sun-drenched southern tip of the island of Mykonos, a weathered house has been transformed into a modern agora. Scorpios is the crown jewel of Mykonos, a beach paradise where glamorous people gather to eat, dance and enjoy the clear Aegean Sea. Paying homage to the ancient Greek agora, the place of assembly, Scorpios is a unique beach club on the southern tip of the island. Part ceremonial, part spiritual celebration, Scorpios brings the mystical charge of nighttime rituals into the day and slows it down a notch or two. To enjoy all that Skorpios has to offer, book a sun lounger for lunchtime and stay until after sunset to dance the night away. The food and drinks are excellent, with whole, deboned, fresh fish, wood-fired vegetables and delicious cocktails – you won’t want to leave.


As if the Greek islands weren’t beautiful enough, along comes Alemagou and turns our idea of Mykonos upside down! This chic yet relaxed beachfront restaurant is the island’s best kept secret, especially if you want to enjoy a drink under the warm Greek sun from morning till night.

Alemagou is an all-day beach bar and restaurant with a bohemian ambience you wouldn’t expect to find in Mykonos. The atmosphere at Alemagou is relaxed yet eclectic, totally laid-back yet elegant, secluded yet cosmopolitan, raw yet refined. Finally, a place where difference isn’t just a matter of language. In an ancient dialect of Mykonos, Alamagou actually means Finally!

The sun seems to shine brighter here and beach life is full of flavour, partying, cocktails and exquisite services. Life on Psarou beach and in Nammos is definitely an unforgettable experience. The main concept behind the Nammos beach bar was to recreate the atmosphere of life aboard a luxury yacht on the beach, a chic and stylish way to enjoy a relaxing day under the sun, accompanied by the sparkle of champagne and the exotic nonchalance that only the extravagant shisha pipes can offer. Soak up the sun on the enviable beach or dance the day away on the sturdy tables.
