Dive Into the Cycladic Culture
Besides parties, though, there is a wide range of interesting cultural events that take place throughout the summer months, which are definitely worth considering. So, whatever your tastes and preferences, you will find an inviting array of events that can fit in your cultural agenda, ranging from mini festivals of young artists and educational programs to art exhibitions and theatre.
Our suggestion? To try, at least once, the experience of an outdoor movie theatre, like Cine Manto has to offer. Located in the heart of Chora, the atmospheric summer cinema is indeed a pearl of entertainment. Watch a film under the stars with your loved one(s), enjoy delicious grilled meals and fresh salads at the adjacent grill restaurant (or ask to be served in the open-air cinema), and relax with a bottle of beer (or a fine glass of wine) at hand while watching one of the latest releases!
Luxury Beach Living in Your Flip flops
Get a sweet taste of the glamorous and intense Mykonian beach life from a wide plethora of options. Whether you need a more laid-back party hotspot that accommodates the young and beautiful from night to dawn or luxury bars frequented by the crème de la crème, Hollywood stars, and famous athletes, you can now have it all. Sunbeds and table reservations can be made for you, and you may also enjoy access to VIP events open only to a selected few! You just name the party you want to attend, and you will most likely get an invitation for your group with the assistance of those that pull the strings – like our VIP service specialists at Kinglike!

You simply choose the level of privacy you desire and pick the ideal location. Leave your footprints on the private sandy beaches nearby or relax by your elegant pool while others enjoy a BBQ, a party, or their nice, quiet time alone with nobody ever stepping on anybody else’s toes!

Simply share your vision and a team of experienced event planners will make sure it becomes a reality. They will manage every aspect of your event, from RSVPs and invitations to galas, branding, engagement parties, and more.
Finally, as already mentioned above, exclusive air services are also available to help turn your celebration into a memorable experience. Experienced pilots will take you and your guests to the desired location quickly, reliably, and, of course, safely.
Much More Than Inland Thrill
1 – Setting Sails
A swanky boat that provides all the comforts and posh you deserve will take you and your family or friends to an exciting whole-day tour in the waters of the Cycladic archipelago. Drop anchor at the island and archaeological site of Delos, have a refreshing dive in trackless beaches with crystal clear waters, and feel free to explore hidden caves that very few have laid eyes upon, just before you set sails again for the nearby islands of Naxos and Paros. If you feel like it, you may even go as far as the island of Santorini – perhaps, the most romantic island in the Mediterranean – and enjoy an idyllic, heart-stopping sunset at the closure of a great day.
Of course, there are more than one ways to have fun while cutting the waters of the Aegean. Having a private party is one of them, so don’t hesitate to ask for a unique experience and turn the decks into a party far away from the shore. Seduced by the stars (or the bright sun) and with champagne flowing abundantly, you can take delight in exclusive cruises to unreachable destinations around the Island of Winds, such as isolated little islets, along with some of the most secluded beaches of the Southern part of the cosmopolitan Mykonos, uncovering the underwater magic and living a truly unforgettable experience away from prying eyes at the same time.
Tip: Once you reach the shore again, watch out for the successor of Peter the Pelican – the mascot of the island; he is a real charm!
2 – Relishing The Beguiling Underwater World
Mykonos offers spell-binding moments both ashore and under the sea. One of the best ways to explore its rich and indeed alluring under-water world is from the comfort of your private, palatial yacht. How? There are companies on the island that offer action and excitement through lux boats featuring an imposing glass floor which gives you full visibility of the ecosystem that develops and flourishes under water. It is a wonderful experience not only for adults but children too, who get the chance to have a clear view of an entirely different world living under their feet without having to deprive themselves of the affluent lifestyle they are used to or mingling with 100s of other people also looking for the same experience. Or you may rent a glamorous and desirable yacht and just dive in, with the guidance and assistance of your personal diving instructor; one of the many certified and experienced divers that not only know how to introduce you to the crystal waters of Mykonos the safest and most exciting way but also teach you the secrets to tame the waves and explore a rich seabed, filled with 2 shipwrecks that date back to a couple of centuries ago, and an amazing marine life.
