After our stay at Semeli Hotel in Mykonos Town, we moved down to the Branco Hotel on Platis Gialos which is the longest beach of the island. Branco Mykonos is one of the newer kids on the block located right on the beach with their own beach club. It is a short walk to the famous Scorpios Beach Club. There are about 25 beaches in Mykonos with secluded ones, local family ones, ones dominated by party clubs, and ones with laid back beach clubs. Regardless which one you choose, the beautiful white sand and azure waters will make you want to return. The more famous standalone beach clubs are Scorpios, Nammos, Principote, Jackie O’, etc. There are also ones within hotels such as the Santa Marina. We didn’t go to any of the beach super clubs such as Paradise Club or Super Paradise where international DJs play pounding music until dawn. Instead, we went to two of the more popular but very chill beach clubs: Principote at Panormas and Scorpios at Paraga. During the busy season of July and August, make sure you book your sunbeds as well as lunch well ahead of time. It will also be best to head down to the beach clubs to claim your loungers before 1pm or so. There is house music going all day with the DJ coming on around 6-7pm.

Love the Burning Man/Madmax look at Scorpios
I like the setup here at Scorpios where you get hide in the shade or go in the sun instead of having to constantly open and close the umbrellas.

Love lounging on the sunbed and shopping at the same time! Different vendors pass by with their goods, mostly swimwear, coverups, hats, bracelets etc. The stuff they sell are actually quite nice, much nicer than the ones I have come across in Thai or Caribbean beaches.
