Cyclades ● Mykonos ● 27 November 2018
Mykonos is not only an island with wild nightlife, the ultimate destination for young people to have fun, dance and flirt all day and night long. Mykonos is also a romantic destination, where you can spend amazing moments with your other half. And what is the best thing to do with your beloved one when you walk around Mykonos Chora or exploring the island? But of  course, to see the sunset and get impressed by its beautiful pink and orange colours painting joyfully the white-washed houses. We gathered for you the best places to enjoy the sunset in Mykonos in the beautiful Chora as well as in other spots of the island.

Little Venice

Little Venice (Mykonos) is generally one of the most romantic places on the island. Lounge bars, luxury restaurants and cafes literally hanging above the sea level remind of Venice with Cycladic aura. This elegant spot in Chora of Mykonos is ideal to drink your cocktail and see the sun mirroring on the Aegean Sea.

The trademark of the island are the Windmills (Mykonos). Located at the highest point of the Chora, on the opposite side of the harbour, these amazing white buildings that remind of past times offer you panoramic view to the whole Chora. You just have to walk a few steps, and then you are in a scenery, which is ideal for lots of photos, sunset pictures and unforgettable moments.

Boat tours

In Mykonos, are organised many boat tours that allow you to enjoy the sunset in the middle of the Aegean Sea. These boats or yachts make you a walk in the islets around Mykonos (Delos and Renia) and give you the opportunity to see the whole Cycladic island taking the colours of the sunset in a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Agios Ioannis Beach

Unfortunately, most beaches in Mykonos are located either on the southern or the eastern side of the island. Only a few beaches are situated on the western side, giving you special sunset view. The most beautiful and organised of these beaches is Agios Ioannis, a small yet gorgeous beach with golden sand, turquoise waters and top touristic facilities, where you can relax the whole day by the sea and enjoy the best summer sunset you have ever seen!

Choulakia Beach

Another beach on the western side of Mykonos is Choulakia, an undiscovered pebbled small bay, which is totally unorganised. There, you can find peace and privacy to enjoy swimming away from the crowds. Around 8-9 o' clock (depending on the summer month), you will watch there one of the best sunsets of your life.
