Among the 2 millions of tourists who visit Mykonos each year, there are many couples. The island is not only a trendy destination for groups who enjoy its vibrant nightlife and the endless parties. It is also a beautiful, romantic place with lots of hidden treasures and idyllic spots that couples would really love.
Many couples like Mykonos so much that they return to the island to get married. They usually choose one of the remote churches or chapels for the ceremony, Mykonos Villa rentals for their guests to stay and the villa’s garden for their bachelor or after wedding parties. All concierge service agencies in Mykonos offer great packages for organizing every detail of a glamorous or a romantic wedding.
- Stay at a hotel or a luxury villa
The best accommodation for couples is the romantic boutique hotels, the adults-only hotels or the luxury Mykonos Villas.

On the other hand, if you choose to stay in one of the amazing Mykonos Luxury Villas, you will have a lot of privacy, a big idyllic garden, your private swimming pool and large indoor spaces, including a kitchen, big lavish bathrooms and multiple verandas to watch the sunset.
- Explore remote unspoiled beaches
Couples need to get away from the noisy, crowded beaches and thankfully, Mykonos has plenty of serene ones. Here we give you some examples – but you can find more when you visit the island:
Mirsini Beach: A completely not organized beach without any facilities or sun beds. Make sure you bring everything you need with you.
Kapari Beach: You will have to walk a little but the landscape will make it worth it! It is an ideal spot to watch the sunset so include a bottle of wine in your supplies.
- Eat at romantic restaurants
Nothing could be more romantic than dining in a luxury restaurant under the stars with a few candles on your table. You will find a lot of gourmet restaurants in Mykonos and some of them are offering a private dining option, with tables placed right on the sand and away from other guests.
A gourmet menu and a bottle of a good wine or expensive champagne will be the perfect dining experience for you and your other half.
A nice, idyllic restaurant is Spilia, a seaside restaurant at Agia Anna beach. It is built in a cave with the sea coming almost in front of the tables – which are placed on a flat rock.
- Discover beautiful romantic spots
Mykonos Town is full of idyllic places – in fact you can even just walk through the beautiful, traditional houses to relax and explore the peaceful corners of the city.
Little Venice is an iconic seaside neighborhood where the balconies of the two-story houses are right above the water. It is one of the best spots to enjoy the colorful Cycladic sunset. You can see the Windmills from everywhere in Mykonos Town but take a walk with your beloved one up to the hill they are located to take a closer look to these wonderful, 3-centuries old buildings. Visit the Castle to see the remains of the wall that surrounded the city and the unique church of Paraportiani.
