Known for its beachfront clubs, world-class restaurants and designer boutiques, Mykonos is a sublime destination best visited aboard a luxury superyacht. While exploring the island’s hidden gems, be sure to get acquainted with fabulous designers that embody Greece’s distinct style.
Greek designers champion flowy dresses, caftans and handmade pieces using ancient techniques. We love Celia Dragouni’s caftans and Mary Katrantzou’s feminine silhouettes, intricate beadwork and embroidery. To shop more local designers, stop by ‘Ergon Mykonos for handmade leather sandals and clothing made using an ancient loom, while the charming shop Amnesia has beautiful sun hats. Fit in with the locals with a gold necklace, ring or coil earrings.

One of the hottest tickets in town is Scorpios, a high-octane restaurant and beach club where even the most well-connected visitors must book in advance. Enjoy long, leisurely lunches dining on fresh, local fare and enjoying the ocean breeze. Principote is also not to be missed; enjoy craft cocktails and creative seafood dishes in a beachfront boho setting while a DJ plays before retreating to the beach. One day, the throngs of dancing crowds will be back.
