Partying in Mykonos: The Do’s and Don’ts for Your Night Out

Mykonos

Mykonos is a Greek island famous for its lively nightlife and gorgeous beaches. A lot of travellers visit Mykonos every year to enjoy a long holiday filled with parties and water activities. The island itself has a lot to offer, from the bohemian ambience to top restaurants and gorgeous villas.

If you’re visiting Mykonos for its parties, you are in for a great time nonetheless. Before you go on a night out, however, here are some of the do’s and don’ts you need to know.

Do: Wear Flip Flops

Forget about your high heels. Most parties in Mykonos are staged on a beach, with a great sound system and all the bells and whistles you would expect from superb parties. To have the best time, you want to trade your high heels with a pair of flip flops.

It is also a good idea to bring an extra pair of flip flops just in case. Tuck the extra pair in your bag before you leave and you won’t have to worry about returning from the party with broken flip flops at all.

Keep in mind that most beach parties in Mykonos start at around 6 p.m.; some even start as early as 5 p.m. until late at night. Later parties can be found closer to the city and at clubs around the island. You wouldn’t want to be late for the excitement since parties at beaches can get very crowded very quickly.

You wouldn’t want to arrive too early either. Don’t show up at a club when the door opens. You’ll end up having more drinks before the party even starts; that’s never a good idea when you have so many things to enjoy through the night.

Do: Get a Taxi

Taxi rides are relatively expensive, but taxis are still the safest way to return to your villa after a party. The only thing you need to remember when getting a taxi is to ask for the fare before jumping in. Skipping this important step could turn into a costly mistake.

Some villas in Mykonos also provide rides, especially for guests who want to party until early in the morning. A car will drop you off at the party and you can ask for a pick-up at any time. It is a much better way to enjoy parties on the island since you don’t have to worry about getting back to the villa.

As silly as this may sound, a lot of tourists and partygoers end up not knowing how to return to their hotels or villas when partying in Mykonos. After a few drinks and an awesome night out, remembering the name of that villa you’re staying at and how to get there can be tricky.

You can write down simple directions and the name of the street where the villa is located on a piece of paper. Keep that information somewhere safe. Storing it in your phone’s Notes app is also handy, but always have a paper backup for when you run out of battery.

Do: Keep an Open Mind

Different beaches in Mykonos have different ambience. Psarou is more famous for its high-end parties and luxurious amenities. Things are quieter in this area. Super Paradise, on the other hand, is wilder. You’ll find a lot of travellers partying in their G-strings and its LGBT community.

Don’t mistake Super Paradise Beach with Paradise Beach too. Both are equally wild, but Paradise is more suitable for most travellers.

Paraga is my favourite beach. It has a verynice vibe to it and parties at Kalua Beach Bar are always classy. You will have a great time and make a lot of new friends whenever you party at this beach.

These are some of the do’s and don’ts to keep in mind for an awesome night out in Mykonos. Plan a trip to the island and enjoy the holiday of a lifetime!
