Planning Your Visit
Gay travellers to Mykonos
Mykonos, Greece, has been popular with the LGBT community of the world for generations. The town offers gay bars, hotels and even gay beaches. Follow the rainbow flag to the right side of Elia beach, or visit Agrari beach, which is 'clothing optional'.
The beauty of visiting the Greek islands is the ease at which you can jump between them, taking in the different sights. Catch a ferry from Mykonos to Naxos, Paros, Ios or Santorini to change up your holiday. Many of these destinations can also be reached with a day trip.
Mykonos is a quiet town, but there's plenty to do at night. Local laws on noise pollution are strict, which means you can't follow the music to find a great spot -- you need to know where you're going. Scandinavian Disco is a popular club and meeting point, but be aware, Europeans start to party late, so many won't get busy until after midnight.

What people are saying about Mykonos
We had a guide that was the former head of archeology at Delos! It was a superb experience. But please note that the tix you buy online need to be traded in for paper tix at the dock. There was a long, slow line. Would have loved not to have had to deal with that aspect. Additionally, it would have been nice to know at the outset how often the ferry runs so that we could have taken more time at the site exploring on our own
Kristopher was an absolute pleasure to have as a tour guide. He was so calm and knowledgeable and really welcoming and put everyone at ease. What a fabulous experience
One of the highlights of our stay on Mykonos! We thoroughly enjoyed feeding the animals and having a relaxing dinner with the owner. The food was delicious!
It was a great day! They gave us lots of time to do everything on both Delos and Mykonos and the views were excellent!
Excellent trip all round. Staff are so friendly and can’t do enough to assist you all day. A really well planned trip.
