Mykonos nightlife is mainly concentrated in two areas: Mykonos Town and the party beaches on the southern coastline.
In the center of Mykonos Town, you will find a lot of bars, clubs, restaurants, and cafes. As the night falls, bars also become dancing clubs. Due to limited space, you will see many of their guests drinking and dancing outside on the streets. Some areas like Matogianni Square or Little Venice become so crowded that it is hard to even walk on their narrow alleys.
This is why many people prefer the party beaches for their nights. Here guests can dance on the sand under the starry sky and even take a refreshing dive into the sea.
