Unlock perks by contacting Isabel to book your trip.
Day 1: Arrive and head to Scorpios
Once you arrive at the Port, get a transfer (these are a must, if you don't want to deal with the iffy taxi service on the island; transportation will run you 100-150 euros a day or 10 euro/person). I stayed at Dreambox Suites in Ornos. Breakfast with a view and poolside. This is also a great place to stay away from the noise of Mykonos if you need some quiet time away from all the activity
Fun fact: In Greece they don't have official addresses! Just give the name of the place and the area.
Check into the hotel, relax, change and take a water taxi to Scorpios for the Mykonian Sunset. This is a must do at least once! You feel like you're part of a James Bond movie. Take pictures and then have dinner in the restaurant and enjoy the music until midnight.
Pro tip: The restaurant/bar closes at midnight. I highly recommend you leave around 11:30/11:40 pm latest to avoid the mass exodus and waiting in traffic for 40 min to go into town. For travel days, I usually recommend heading back to the hotel to relax, but for the energetic people go have fun in town.
Day 2: Tour and night out
Wake up around 9am to get ready and go to Mykonos Port for the Delos/Rhenia Tour. Bring sunblock, it is hot, and the sun is blistering without the breeze.
At 5pm go back to your hotel, enjoy the sunset and change. 7:45pm pick up for dinner at Alemagou which will be at 8:30 pm at sunset and enjoy the party until 11:30 pm. After the party, head into downtown and have a great night out on the town!
Day 3: Beach day
Wake up around 11am and head to Santanna Beach at Paraga which has amazing daybeds. At Santanna Beach club, a 100 euro tip will be required to reserve Cabanas or sunbeds. Each day bed will run 150 euros per day with a 150 euro food and drink spend. Each sunbed is 80 euros per day with 80 euro minimum spend. Enjoy the beach where you can order food and take the small fishing boat back to Ornos beach at 5pm or take a transfer.
Relax and get ready for 8:10pm pick-up. Take sunset pictures at the windmills and enjoy some evening drinks at Caprice in Little Venice. Explore the town for a couple of hours, then head to dinner at Byblos Restaurant— there's amazing live music with a DJ. Stay awhile and enjoy the acrobatic show around midnight! It's amazing.
Day 4: Island tour
Wake up and rent a Dune Buggy for an Island Tour from Ornos to the other end of the island and then on the way back stop at Agia Anna Beach for a 2pm lunch. Have lunch at Spilia Restaurant, a restaurant located in a sea cave! The best location is above the cave where you can overlook the water and get a fantastic view. For a large group, a 150 euro tip will be required for a reservation on a Sunday.
After lunch go back to the hotel and depart at 7pm to go to Scorpios Sunday party. Enjoy Scorpios until 11:45pm and then head back to the hotel or go to town.
