Mykonos with Kids – Where To Stay
- Most kids and families will want to stay on the beaches of Ornos or Platis Gialos – great sand, swimming, hotels, and beach restaurants.
- Personally, I love staying in Mykonos Town (filled with shops, cafes, restaurants, and clubs). The nightlife starts late and is easy to avoid for families.
- The beach clubs Pasaji (Ornos) and Hippy Fish (Agios Ioannis) have great food, a family-friendly vibe, and wonderful beach and swimming.
