Mykonos: An Essential Guide to Gay Travellers

Mykonos, the Queen of the Cyclades, is proud to be one of the world’s landmarks of lgbtq+ travelers. Friendly, vibrant, welcoming and colorful!

Homophobia does not fit on the island, you can enjoy what you want without fear, only with passion. In Mykonos, there are no limits, whether you like it or not, and you are absolutely free to live your every moment as you wish. You can flirt, fall in love, love and be loved, true and loud.

The island is flooded with charm, with its whitewashed houses and its colorful shutters. The streets, full of people, tell their own stories and enchant you.

Mykonos is a summer carnival of senses, and you can rest assured that it will not let you go.

Hot beaches, bitches! Sunbathing, lots of flirting, sunburned bodies and swimming. Every beach gets better with beautiful crowds enjoying the sun in their bathing suits – or without them.
