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. Ornos and Platis Gialos are both well connected to Mykonos Town by bus and connected to other beaches by a water taxi. Personally, I love staying in Mykonos Town, filled with shops, cafes, and restaurants. Stay in town overnight, then visit any of Mykonos’ gorgeous beaches by day. Although Mykonos Town is known for nightlife, partying starts late here (some clubs don’t even open until after midnight), so it’s easy to avoid for families.
- Best Hotel for Families in Mykonos Town: Semeli
- Best Hotel for Families in Ornos: Santa Marina
- Best Hotel for Families in Platis Gialos: Petasos
- Best Villa for Families in Mykonos: Myconian Villa Collection at Elia Beach
- Best Midrange Hotels for Families in Mykonos: Petinos Beach in Platis Gialos and Erato Hotel near Ornos Beach
- The beach clubs Pasaji (Ornos) and Hippie Fish (Agios Ioannis) have great food, a family-friendly vibe, and wonderful beach and swimming.
