Is Mykonos good for honeymoon?
Yes, it is absolutely fine. The two most popular islands for honeymooners in Greece are Mykonos and Santorini. Santorini wins in romance but Mykonos wins in the party atmosphere and the quality of service. You will not regret booking your honeymoon hotel and vacation in either Mykonos or Santorini.
What are the best things to do in Mykonos on my honeymoon?
Here is a list of experiences you can enjoy in Mykonos during your honeymoon:
- Spend many hours during the day on the beach and enjoy swimming and tanning.
- Party in the afternoon in one of the famous beach bars of Mykonos (Scorpios, Nammos, Principote etc)
- Dine at luxury restaurants on the beach or in the town
- Party all-night-long in the bars and clubs of the island
- Take a helicopter ride to Santorini
- Visit Rhenia island (20 minutes from Mykonos with a boat) on a daily tour.
And what about romantic things to do in Mykonos?
Even though Mykonos has the rumor of the best “party island” in Greece, you will still find a lot of romantic things to do in Mykonos. Here is a list of romantic ideas:
- Walk with your partner in the beautiful Matoyianni street in Mykonos town
- Watch the sunset, as the sun falls behind the island of Delos, from your private pool in a Mykonos honeymoon hotel. Or from the hill with the popular windmills in Mykonos town (although it gets too crowded in July/August and you kind of lose the romantic feeling with so many people around you).
- Visit Little Venice and have a glass of wine there, while viewing the sea and the sunset.
- Pick a beach which is not that popular and go for a night swimming, under the light of the moon.
- Book a photographer to capture the two of you in the most beautiful places in Mykonos
What are other honeymoon destinations near Mykonos that I could add to my honeymoon trip?
If you want to combine two or three islands during your honeymoon, including Mykonos, I suggest that you include Santorini island (best choice to add to your trip in Mykonos) and you could also add Antiparos island, which is the favorite island of Tom Hanks (he actually owns a house there and goes to Antiparos every summer). Koufonisia island could also be a choice, under conditions (read below).
We wouldn’t suggest including other islands near Mykonos on your honeymoon trip, for the following reasons:
- Paros island: Too crowded at Naousa village, which is the main place to be and not as romantic as Santorini. You should better go to Antiparos, which is 10 minutes from Paros with the ferry boat.
- Ios Island: A party island for people in their 20s. A lot of drinking, partying but not many luxurious restaurants or so many romantic things to do.
- Andros Island: Long distances, family island. Beautiful but too neutral for honeymooners. Boring mostly.
- Koufonisia Island: A popular choice and a lovely, small island to go. If you go a little bit off-season (not in August), it could also be added to your honeymoon itinerary.
What is the Mykonos honeymoon cost?
If you want to check how expensive is Mykonos, have a look at our blogpost here.
During the high season (July, August), the smallest daily budget you should plan for would be:
- Hotel Budget: a minimum of 170 euros/night for a decent double room, with free breakfast included
- Beachtime Budget: 40 euros for two sunbeds and an umbrella. Two cold coffees will be 10 euros and if you get some water and a couple of beers, you will need another 20 euros. A total of 70 euros for spending 4-5 hours on the beach, without eating anything.
- Lunch: 50 euros for two persons
- RentACar: 40 euros per day
- Dinner: 70 euros for a two-persons dinner
- Drinks in a bar in the evening: a minimum of 10 to 15 euros per person for a drink or cocktail. This can go much higher obviously, depending on your drinking habits.
So, a conservative total budget per day for a couple, is around 450 euros per day in Mykonos, during the high season.
As you can imagine, the upper limit of your honeymoon trip to Mykonos is much higher. If you want to get one of the best honeymoon hotels in Mykonos and go to the fanciest restaurants during the evening, the cost could easily be 1500 to 2000 euros per day.

The 10 Best Honeymoon Hotels in Mykonos

Perhaps one of the most luxurious hotel experiences in the whole of Mykonos, Cavo Tagoo offers a romantic ‘barefoot’ style experience you are sure to never forget. Located on a cliff overlooking the stunning clear blue waters of the Aegean Sea, Cavo Tagoo has a view unlike any other.
Cavo Tagoo is a quiet 5-star hotel with limited guest rooms to ensure that those staying there enjoy a top level of privacy and luxury. With a full-service sauna and spa, floating relaxation beds on the cliffside pool, and a 5-star contemporary Mediterranean restaurant on location, Cavo Tagoo is truly the height of luxury and certainly one of the best honeymoon hotels in Mykonos.
A Cavo Tagoo Mykonos premium room with pool, costs 1440 Euros a day, at the peak season of July/August. Having one of the best view hotels in Mykonos, comes with a hefty price obviously.
A lot of readers ask “is Cavo Tagoo all-inclusive“? The answer here is absolutely not. Only breakfast is included in the price.
Another popular question is whether there are any black Friday deals in Mykonos for Cavo Tagoo (or other hotels) and the answer again is no. You will not find any special deal for Cavo Tagoo during the year.

8) Myconian Villa Collection.
Located on the popular Elia Beach, you will find this private 5-star resort, The Myconian Villa Collection.

But never fear, the resort does have its very own private beach on the
Aegean sea for you to enjoy, without any crowds.
In addition to the stunning beaches, this resort has a world-famous saltwater infinity pool, saltwater therapy treatments, and breathtaking suites. In addition to your room, you can also upgrade your stay to include a private chef and luxury yacht rentals for you and your partner.

4) Royal Myconian.
The Royal Myconian is a 5-star luxury hotel chain that sits on a stunning cliffside view of the Aegean Sea overlooking Elia Beach. With 148 rooms and villas, this is a bit larger and less ‘exclusive’ than other competing luxury resorts, but don’t let that deter you. The Royal Myconian is no slouch when it comes to the 5-star experience.
What really sets the Royal Myconian apart is the top-notch amenities that the hotel offers. Guests can enjoy once-daily complementary thalassotherapy sessions, as well as free in-room beauty treatments. Pair this with the breathtaking outdoor pool, and restaurant area and you are guaranteed to have the most relaxing stay of your life. You may never want to even leave the hotel at all!
3) Mykonos Blanc.
Mykonos Blanc, located in the serene area of Ornos, offers couples a more calming and secluded atmosphere than competing 5-star hotel experiences. Located perfectly on top of the gorgeous Ornos Beach, guests can simply roll out of bed, and walk their way outside and find themselves on the white-sand shores.
The hotel itself is modeled after the very traditional Cycladic architecture style, and is surrounded by mountainous views and towering palm trees. While still remaining close to the heart of the city, Ornos is far enough away to avoid any of the boisterous party crowd that can exist on the island. This means that you and your partner can truly enjoy the calming sounds of the ocean, without any of the crowded beaches that the party areas see.
2) Semeli Hotel.
Located on the world-famous Megali Ammos Beach, just minutes from the heart of the Mykonos city center is the wonderfully lavish Semeli Hotel. This 5-star hotel offers sea, city, and mountainous views from anywhere on the premises.

The 5-star Thioni restaurant serves excellent Greek and Italian dishes throughout the day, which can be enjoyed indoors or outside by the pool on the veranda. You can enjoy hand-mixed cocktails, sophisticated spa and fitness facilities, and otherworldly natural views of the island without ever leaving the comfort of the resort.
Semeli Hotel is ideal for couples who enjoy nature, and the finer things in life and certainly deserve a place in the list of the best honeymoon hotels in Mykonos.
