The Best Mykonos Hotels On The Beach

There are many great Mykonos Beaches and many great Mykonos Hotels. But there are only a handful of hotels that are directly on a Mykonos beach. I’ve listed these hotels below. Mykonos beaches are best visited from late May to early October when the weather is sunny and the sea is warm enough for swimming.

The 12 Best Mykonos Beach Hotels

1. Mykonos Blanc – Ornos Beach

Pool and hotel look out onto beautiful Ornos Beach (the most family-friendly beach on Mykonos). Several beach restaurants are just out the door.

2. Mykonos Ammos Hotel – Ornos

Nice hotel right on the beach. Small pool is back from the sand (inside the property).

3. Mykonos Blu – Psarou Beach

The pool and hotel overlook one of the best beaches on Mykonos (and location of the popular Namos beach club). Platys Gialos Beach is a 3 minute walk in the other direction if you need a change of scenery.

4. Branco Mykonos – Platys Gialos

Wonderful new luxury beach hotel right on the sand at one of the best Mykonos beaches. Great restaurant and beach bar (house music playing from 1pm to 7pm every day).

5. Nissaki Boutique Hotel – Platys Gialos

I love this place and have to include it here even though it’s not truly a beach hotel. It sits directly between two of the best beaches on Mykonos (Psarou and Platys Gialos) and looks out towards Psarou Beach. It’s a lovely hotel and idyllic location.

6. Acrogiali Hotel – Platys Gialos

Great hotel steps from the sand (and restaurants) of Platys Gialos. Hotel has quadruple suites and family rooms that sleep 5.

7. Mykonos Palace Beach Hotel – Platys Gialos

Just down from Acrogali, but this hotel has a pool and a trendy little beach bar that gets a nice crowd at night.

8. Mykonos Kosmoplaz Beach Resort Hotel – Platys Gialos

In the middle of Acrogiali and Mykonos Palace. Has a small pool and is the cheapest hotel right on the beach.

9. Sunrise Hotel and Suites – Agrari Beach

Very quiet beach and secluded vibe. Nice pool. Rent a car if you stay here.

10. Myconian Imperial Resort & Villas – Elia Beach

Awesome 5-star hotel sits above idyllic Elia Beach. The best choice for quiet and solitude – but a rental car is highly recommended.

11. Saint John Hotel Villas & Spa – Agios Ioannis Beach

Luxury hotel but the beach here is not as nice as the beaches above.

12. Mykonos Grand – Agios Ioannis Beach

Directly beside Saint John’s resort and with a similar high-end quality.

  1. Honeymoon to Mykonos and Santorini

    Love your site Dave, very helpful & insightful! I’m normally not one to plan our own trips, particularly one as far away with as many moving parts as this, but you’ve made me a believer and convinced her on NOT doing a cruise! We’re planning on going in early June for our honeymoon, ferrying from Rafina to Mykonos, 4 nights in Mykonos staying at the Nissaki Boutique Hotel. Then jumping on the ferry to Santorini and staying at the Sophia Suites for 7 nights before ferrying back to Rafina to head home. Good choices? Anything you’d recommend as “must do’s”? Thanks again, Luke.

    1. Santorini Dave The Hotel Expert

      Those are both great hotels. With 7 nights I’d probably recommend that you split that 7 days into two hotels and villages. It is a small hassle to move mid-stay but the benefit of experiencing the island from a different location is worth the effort. Also, even the best breakfast gets a little old after 7 days of the same choices. I’d look at Oia for something similar to Imerovigli (but busier) or Fira if you want some nightlife. If you want something really different then check out Carpe Diem in the town of Pyrgos. Not on the caldera but a very special (and romantic) place to stay. The must do activities in Santorini are the Fira-Oia hike and a boat tour of the caldera.

  2. Where To Stay in Mykonos and Santorini on Short Trip

    I’ll be in Mykonos for 1 night on June 2, then sailing between Mykonos and Santorini then spending 2 nights in Santorini. Being my time on both islands is relatively short is there an area of each island that I should stay on to get the most out of my stay?

    1. Santorini Dave The Hotel Expert

      Stay in Mykonos Town and Fira (or Oia as a second choice). They have the most to do and see and are the hub for the islands’ bus service.

  3. Good Beach Hotel in Mykonos

    Hey Dave! Thanks for a wonderfully helpful and informative site! And for all the questions you keep answering, WOW!

    I have found a lot of useful information here already, but now have a question myself: for our traditional annual “mum-and-daughter-trip” we chose Mykonos for this year. We’ll be traveling beginning October for one week, and we are looking for a nice hotel on/very near a beach with good pool facilities, nice views, and easy access to town/local restaurants/boat rentals.

    I have done some research and found MANY wonderful places to stay, often reasonably priced as it’s end of season. So we have narrowed down to 3 hotels: Petasos, Mykonos Blu, and Palladium. As my daughter has celiac disease and needs to eat gluten free, we do appreciate a varied breakfast selection with enough gluten free options.

    Which of these 3 hotels would you recommend most? Thanks so much!

    1. Santorini Dave The Hotel Expert

      Those are all great choices. Palladium has the largest pool but is farthest from the beach (though steps from bus stop to Mykonos Town). Petasos has the easiest access to a beach. Mykonos Blu is the trendiest. Honestly, can’t go wrong with any of them.

  4. George Hotel in Mykonos

    Hi Dave –

    Any views on The George Hotel? Thanks!


    1. Santorini Dave The Hotel Expert

      Very nice but not right on the beach (about a 3 minute walk to Platys Gialos beach, 5 minutes to Psarou beach, and 3 minutes to bus stop to Mykonos Town).

  5. Tharroe vs Mykonos Princess

    HI Dave;

    Can you give me a comparison between Tharroe and Mykonos Princess please?

    Thank you for your help.

    1. Santorini Dave The Hotel Expert

      Both are wonderful hotels. Biggest difference is location. Mykonos Princess is off on it’s own a bit – you really need a rental car if you stay here and want to see any of the island. Tharroe is between Mykonos Town and the best beaches on Mykonos. It’s (sort-of) walking distance to Mykonos Town and plenty of buses pass by if you want to hop aboard going in either direction (to town or beach). Choose the Mykonos Princess if you’re happy to sit by the pool all day and relax. Choose Tharroe if you want to see and explore different parts of the island.

  6. Petasos Beach Hotel in Mykonos

    What do you think about Petasos Beach Hotel? I’ve heard great things but it’s not on your list.

    1. Santorini Dave The Hotel Expert

      Petasos is a great hotel just a few minutes from Platys Gialos beach. This list was meant for hotels that were right on a beach (though some are back a little bit so there’s a grey area) – which is why I didn’t include it. But yeah, it’s very nice and pretty darn close to being a beach hotel.
