The good news is that Mykonos is not only an island for youngsters. It is a beautiful island with stunning beaches, a town of impeccable beauty and top touristic facilities. There are many family things to do in Mykonos, but one thing you should keep in mind.

It is crucial to choose the right accommodation option in order to have everything you may need for your kids in a calm and peaceful environment, away from the crowds. Mykonos with toddler or baby can be tough, if you stay for example near a noisy spot or in a hotel full of young people who stay up late until dawn. The best place to stay in Mykonos for families is a luxury villa with carefully picked amenities for you and your children.
