Curator’s statement

Paros & Mykonos are two of the most popular Greek islands - and for good reason! If you're planning a trip with your girlfriends for a birthday, bachelorette—or just for fun—these islands have the best beaches, nightlife and restaurants Greece has to offer. Even better, you can fly from Athens to both destinations, and it's just a short ferry ride from one island to the other. Peak island season is from May through September in Greece. I recommend visiting in early June for better prices and cooler temperatures.

Day 1: Arrive in Paros

Paros is only a 40 minute flight from Athens, and there are flights almost every hour during high season. Whether you fly or take a ferry, arrange a transfer via your hotel to pick you up and avoid the long wait for a local taxi. Once checked in to your hotel, relax by the pool with some cocktails until it's time to get ready for dinner. Head to Naoussa, the trendiest part of the island for dinner at Barbarossa. Barbarossa is a seafood restaurant right on the water with stunning views. Around 11pm, the music gets louder and everyone starts swinging their napkins in the air, turning the restaurant into a big party! After dinner, head to Sante for cocktails and music.

Day 2: Beach day

After a leisurely rise and breakfast at your hotel, head to Santa Maria beach for the day, the nicest beach Paros has to offer. Chairs are first come, first served, so I recommend getting there by 11am for the best spots. There are multiple bars along the beach that serve food, coffee and cocktails, so you can eat your lunch right on your beach chair. Once you have had enough sun for the day, head back to your hotel and take a siesta before dinner at Stilvi, a Mediterranean restaurant located in a beautiful courtyard oasis. Their cocktail list is sure to elevate your dining experience. Make sure to make a reservation as it is typically fully booked in the summer. After dinner, bar hop in Naoussa; check out Linardo & Agosta on the water!

Day 3: Ferry to Mykonos

After two days in Paros, it's time to head to its bigger and busier counterpart, Mykonos. Take a speed ferry to get you there in less than an hour - there are a few a day, typically running until the afternoon. Once arriving in Mykonos, you most likely won't be able to check into your hotel until 3pm. I recommend going to lunch at Hippie Fish while you wait - a sushi restaurant on Agios Ioannis Beach with the cutest bohemian aesthetic.

Next, head to your hotel to settle in. Some of your group may want to nap or hang by the pool if your hotel has one. This is also a good time to do some shopping in Mykonos Town when the streets aren't as crowded and you don't have to carry your bags around all night!

At sunset, head to Scorpios for the best views and stay for dinner. Sunday is the best day to go as it is their wildest night & they stay open until 2am. Because it is also day club, it typically closes at 1am all other nights.

Day 4: Day club & beach day

Mykonos has a plethora of day clubs and beaches to choose from, and I highly recommend you visit at least one day club for the experience. Reserve beach chairs at Kahlua (you must show up by 1pm) and enjoy the relaxed beach vibes for a couple of hours. Then head to SantAnna around 5pm when the party starts. SantAnna has DJs every day of the summer and the music goes well into the night. These day clubs all require chair reservations and food & beverage minimums. Not looking to spend as much? Visit Paradise or Super Paradise beach instead for a good party without breaking the bank. If you're looking for a more relaxing beach day, I suggest Elia or Platis Gialos beaches.

After partying all day, you'll be sure to need a siesta before dinner. As you can see, naps are part of the itinerary in Greece! Go to Noa at the Myconian Kyma hotel for dinner. This was some of the best Greek food I've had in Mykonos. You can walk to town after dinner or head back to your hotel for a night cap.

Day 5: Boat day

Renting a boat in Mykonos is a must if you want to see all the different beaches the island has to offer. You can choose a day cruise or a sunset cruise, both of which typically include a meal onboard. I recommend the south beaches itinerary, and if the weather cooperates, you can stop and get off at one of the beaches for an hour. There is nothing better than feeling the island breeze on a yacht in Greece!

Whether you do the day or sunset cruise, you will have time to go back to your hotel to get ready for the evening. Walk around town before dinner if you have time. The little alleys are so charming and swarming with boutiques. There are so many beautiful restaurants in town, but one of the best experiences is Interni restaurant. Situated in a courtyard with a big bar in the middle, it is worth visiting during your stay. After dinner, head to Negrita in Little Venice to dance the night away. The music and vibes are immaculate!

Day 6: Last day in Mykonos

Wake up and get ready for your final day in Mykonos. Spend the day at Principote on Panormos beach and relax after multiple days of partying. Make sure to reserve chairs in advance and make a reservation at the restaurant. The food is excellent, and don't skip the bougatsa for dessert. The presentation alone is worth experiencing.

Depending on your stamina, choose from sunset drinks and dinner or clubbing at Cavo Paradiso for your final night. Cavo Paradiso is Mykonos' largest club located on a cliff that brings in world famous DJs such as Steve Aoki, David Guetta and The Chainsmokers. Can't decide between the two? You can do both! Headliners at Cavo don't come on until 2am and go until 6 in the morning so it's sure to be a memorable last night!
