The island of Mykonos poses several challenges to travelers with limited mobility, including cobblestones, hills, sandy beaches, and inaccessible public transportation. With some advance planning, however, it’s possible to plan a fantastic Greek island trip of a lifetime.
Mykonos Hotels with Disabled Access
The Best Wheelchair Accessible Hotels in Mykonos
• Mykonos Blanc (Ornos)
• Kalesma (Ornos)
• Aegon (Kalo Livadi)
• Koukoumi Vegan (Ano Mera)
In general across the Greek islands, look into larger, newly built hotels. Newly constructed hotels with a certain number of rooms are required to have a small percentage of wheelchair-accessible rooms, ramps connecting most facilities, and larger elevators. Older hotels and small hotels are likely to have only stairs connecting most floors (and if they happen to have an elevator, it’s usually tiny). Many rooms will have narrow doors, bathtubs instead of showers, and overall inaccessible room layouts/amenities. Hotels operating out of historic buildings are mandated to conform to the original architecture as closely as possible, so all floors will likely be connected by stairs. Book well in advance. Most hotels that offer accessible rooms only have 1 or 2 in total, and they fill up quickly.
Accessible Hotels in Mykonos Town
Chora (Mykonos Town) is a fun tangle of pedestrian paths to get lost in amid shops, churches, and small restaurants. Pathways here are mostly flat, with a slight incline as you travel up from the water; almost none are too steep that they can’t be managed with assistance. The surface is generally paved in flagstone – though the white shapes in the alleyways may seem intimidating, they do not indicate different stones and are merely painted on. During high season, however, these narrow alleyways tend to be crowded from sunset until late into the night.
The surface along the Mykonos Town waterfront is made up of somewhat rough cobblestone, but it is lined with several restaurants that have wheelchair-friendly outdoor seating, making it a great place to relax and people-watch. The main sites in Mykonos Town, including the windmills and Paraportiani Church, can be visited via wheelchair, though you may need to navigate an extra street or two to avoid steps along the way. The small swimming beach between the harbor and the Old Port (near Agia Anna Church) has a mechanical sea access ramp to lead beachgoers with disabilities through the sand into the water.
- Harmony Boutique – Mykonos Town
Charming hotel with a fantastic restaurant and bar, located in a quiet area above the Old Port. There is a wheelchair-accessible entrance up to the front desk, and the restaurant and breakfast area can be accessed by elevator. There is one room that can be reached via wheelchair with no steps, but the toilet has no grab rails, and the sink is not lowered. Emergency cords are in all rooms.
- Mykonos Theoxenia – Mykonos Town
Seafront hotel near the famous Mykonos windmills and picturesque Little Venice. The 1-bedroom suite is accessible, with a wheel-in shower, grab rails, and shower chair. There is no wheelchair access to the fitness center or massage treatment rooms.
Accessible Beach Hotels
Staying at or near the beach can be a great option for wheelchair users on Mykonos. All beach clubs have wooden boardwalks that run between the restaurant and the sunbeds, where you can order cocktails and food. Usually, these walkways go straight to the sunbeds and don’t branch out in between them and generally do not reach the water’s edge – call ahead to reserve and request a sunbed near the walkway. SantAnna Beach Club, on Paraga Beach, has a boardwalk that extends almost to the water and their pool can be accessed via a gradual slope.
Three beaches on Mykonos have mechanical sea access ramps: small Agia Anna Beach in Mykonos Town, Kalafatis Beach, and Kalo Livadi Beach.
There is good wheelchair access to Ornos Beach at Mykonos Blanc Hotel: the paved road and parking lot end just at their entrance, and all hotel facilities can be accessed via wheelchair, including toilets and showers. If not staying at the hotel, you can call ahead to reserve beach loungers (with umbrella) for the day; this allows access to the toilets, showers, and beach service – ask for one near the boardwalk. They also have a covered beachfront restaurant and shaded outdoor lounge; again, call ahead to reserve a spot in high season.
- Mykonos Blanc – Ornos
Luxury boutique hotel with excellent beach access. The entrance is accessible via ramp and the hotel has an elevator as well as easy access to the pool area and restaurant. There is one Senior Suite that is accessible to wheelchair-using guests with toilet grab rails, higher toilet, lowered sink, and emergency shower cord.
- Kalesma – Ornos
Fabulous brand new hotel located on a hilltop above Ornos Bay. Two of their 25 suites are accessible by wheelchair and all common areas of the hotel are wheelchair-accessible (restaurant, pool, pool bar, lobby). Suites and public restrooms include toilet grab rails, higher toilets, lower sinks, and emergency shower cords.
- Mykonos Ammos – Ornos
Luxe beachfront boutique hotel with sea views, complimentary minibars, and an elevator. One standard double beach front room is accessible for wheelchair-using guests.
Kalo Livadi Beach
One of the less-crowded (but up-and-coming) beaches on Mykonos’ southern coast, Kalo Livadi features shallow, crystal clear waters and a long, wide, sand-and-pebble expanse. There is a parking lot close to the beach, a couple of restaurants and beach bars with boardwalk access to sunbeds (Lohan House, in particular), and also lots of free space. Kalo Livadi is one of three Mykonos beaches that features a mechanical sea access ramp.
- Aegon – Kalo Livadi
New luxury beachfront property with two restaurants and an on-site spa. Aegon features elevators, an accessible entrance, and wheelchair access to the hotel’s lobbies, pool areas, restaurants, common area bathrooms, and meeting room. Mobility-accessible rooms feature lowered sink, raised toilet with grab rails, adjustable height hand-held shower wands, non-slip bathtub grab rails, and roll-in showers.
- Andromeda Villas & Suites – Kalo Livadi
Four independent, secluded hillside villas and suites with gorgeous sea views over Kalo Livadi. There is wheelchair-accessible parking and select units feature in-room accessibility including a low-height counter and sink and a raised toilet seat .
Megali Ammos Beach
Located just south of Mykonos Town, Megali Ammos is a quiet beach with nice sand that is open to the sea – so it can be windy.
- Bill & Coo Suites – Megali Ammos
Sitting on a hill above Megali Ammos, Bill & Coo is a 5-star collection of spacious family-friendly suites and villas, all with sea-facing private balconies or terraces – and most featuring private jacuzzis or pools. The hotel entrance and all public areas, including the excellent restaurant, pool deck, and bar can be accessed via ramps. Two rooms are wheelchair accessible, but do not feature additional modifications such as raised toilet seat and grab bars.
Popular and family-friendly, Platis Gialos is one of the best and busiest beaches on Mykonos and features crystal clear water and wide expanses of sun beds and beach umbrellas. There are plenty of restaurants and beach clubs here, and a boardwalk runs the length of the beach between these and the sand. The beach can be easily accessed via Avli tou Thodori restaurant, which has a rear parking area and entrance. The food and service there are excellent, and restaurant customers can use their sun loungers and umbrellas for free. Call ahead to reserve a sunbed close to the restaurant.
- Pelican Bay Art Hotel – Platis Gialos
Friendly and comfortable 4-star hotel located just a couple minutes’ drive from the beach. The hotel features wheelchair-accessible parking and path of travel; select rooms can be accessed via wheelchair and have accessible bathrooms with roll-in showers.
Very close to Ornos Beach, Korfos is a smaller, unorganized, and shallow beach that is popular with windsurfers for its strong winds and large waves. You won’t find sunbeds or a beach boardwalk here, but the area can make a great home base as it’s only a short distance from here to Ornos.
- Aeonic Suites & Spa – Korfos
Brand new spa hotel with 47 suites; all with private plunge pool or jacuzzi. There’s easy elevator access throughout the hotel, including to the elegant seafood restaurant. Bathrooms feature roll-in showers and emergency pull cords.
Accessible Inland Village Hotels
Located in the center of the island, Ano Mera is Mykonos’ only other notable settlement aside from Mykonos Town. Ano Mera features an attractive main square, lined with tavernas and cafes, and the beautiful 16th-century Tourliani Monastery. The village itself is fairly accessible, except for a few tavernas that have a step up or down to get in, but most have stair-less entrances. The monastery can’t be easily accessed via wheelchair, as it has stairs at both the entrance and courtyard; the attached museum is spread over two floors with no elevator.
- Koukoumi – Ano Mera
100% vegan and wheelchair-accessible luxury hotel. The wheelchair ramp at the entrance and two elevators help navigate through all 14 rooms and give access to all common areas like reception, lobby, restaurant, pool and pool bar, spa, gym, two public restrooms (WC following ADA standards), and parking area. One accessible room on the ground floor near the pool and reception features a wide main door, wide bathroom door, lower sink, grab bars in the sink and the roll-in shower, foldable shower seat, and adjustable bathroom mirror. The bed is double with a vegan king-size Coco-mat mattress or can be separated into two single ones upon request. Koukoumi also offers transfer services with wheelchair-accessible minibuses.
Accessible Hotels near the Mykonos Ferry Port
Tourlos & Agios Stefanos
The Mykonos ferry port and neighborhood of Tourlos lie about 1km north of Mykonos Town. It’s not the most picturesque area, but some great hotels have been popping up there over the past few years, and Tourlos offers proximity to the docks and nice views over the marina to the Aegean. Agios Stefanos is just north of the ferry terminal; a small, sandy beach with a handful of restaurants and beach clubs. Not the most beautiful beach in Mykonos, but it’s great for swimming and is protected from the winds.
- Mykonos Riviera – Tourlos
Excellent luxury hotel near the ferry port with an amazing spa, elegant Lebanese restaurant, and a casual Mediterranean pool bistro – all accessible by wheelchair. All units (rooms, suites, maisonettes, and villas) include a private terrace with marina and sea views, and all have roll-in showers, but no grab rails. The 8-bedroom villa can sleep up to 29 guests.
- Grace – Agios Stefanos
Excellent property with a sea view pool, tranquil spa, and an all-day Greek restaurant and bar. The hotel is right on a main street with easy access for people using a wheelchair; reception is just inside the entrance so guests can easily ask for assistance. 2 Deluxe Rooms on the ground floor are specially designed with very large bathrooms with grab rails and emergency phone. An elevator leads from the ground level to the 3rd floor where the pool and restaurant are located.
