11 Best Places Where to Watch the Sunset in Mykonos

Mykonos sunsets are not as famous as Santorini's ones but trust me that they are stunning.

I genuinely believe that sunsets near the sea are the best (but I grew up in a seaside town and watched the sunset every evening, so I have a biased opinion about it).


All the west side of Mykonos is good for sunset, but some places are undoubtedly the best.

1. From Little Venice beach:


Between the famous windmills and Little Venice, there is a small beach, where many people go to enjoy the sunset every evening.

It is a lovely spot because you can see at the same time little Venice at the golden hour, with the waves crashing against it.


Venice beach is a great place to be when coming back from the beach or before having dinner in the main town.

2. Katerina's Restaurant & Cocktail Bar:


Located in the famous Mykonos Little Venice, this is one of the bars right on the waterfront, those you can enter only from the back entrance (or you can try to swim till there and jump up to the balcony).


Katerina's is another place where you can stop at any time of the day and night (almost anytime).


You can stop here for a coffee in the morning, for a light lunch or a romantic dinner. They have a little balcony with only three tables right on the sea (you have to book it in advance if you want to sit there obviously) with a spectacular view.


To your left, you will see the famous Windmill of Mykonos and, to the right, a beautiful sunset.

They prepare many local dishes and also some pasta or rice with fish.

Cocktails are delicious, and there is also a Dj set to dance all night.


Opening Time: every day from 9.00 am to 3.00 am

Address: Epar.Od. Mikonou 8, Άγιοι Ανάργυροι 864 00, Greece

3. Baboulas Ouzeri:


We found this place just by strolling around the Old Harbour. We left our car in the car park at the north end of the main town, and as soon as I saw this place, I went to one of the waiters to book a table.


Of course, I asked to get one of the tables right on edge, near the sea, to admire the town and the marvellous sunset.

Guys, it was so romantic, and the food was delicious, simple local dishes to love at every bite. The service was very attentive and prices were a bit cheaper than the restaurant in the middle of Chora.

For sure, if I will ever go back to Mykonos, I will go back to this place for dinner.


Opening Time: every day from 12.30 pm to 1.30 am.

Address: Μύκονος 846 00, Greece. In the north edge of the Old Harbour.

4. 180 Sunset:


If you would like to get stunning pictures with the Chora in front of you and a fantastic sunset, this is a place you have to book.


It is called 180 Sunset, and it is pretty expensive but stunning.

You have to book a table in advance if you want the spot you like.


The bar is divided into two sections. One is table free, so you sit wherever you want if the table is still available. The second section is for bookings. You can book the table you like, but you have a 50 euros minimum to spend per person.


It is worth the booking because if you get two cocktails each and a couple of appetizers, trust me you will reach 50 euros per person without any problem.


Also, the free area can get very crowded with people trying to take pictures with others obstructing the view.

Click here to book your table.

5. Book a room in a hotel with a sea view on the west side of the island:


There are so many beautiful hotels in Mykonos to choose from that you indeed will find the best one for you and your needs.


Still, if you are looking for a Hotel where to enjoy the sunset every night straight from your room, you must look for one located on the west side and make sure there is nothing that could obstruct the view.


My advice is to book a hotel near the coast, so you are going to be right in the first line to enjoy a view you are going to remember forever.

6. Mykonos Old Harbour:


There is a beautiful promenade at the Old Harbour where to walk at every time of the day. Some boats are floating in the water, making it a lovely place to enjoy the sunset and take stunning pictures.


After the sunset, you are gonna be right in town, where many restaurants and bars will wait for you to make you end the day with a delicious Greek meal and a glass of Ouzo.

7. Kapari beach:


Kapari is a very natural beach where you are not going to find any beach clubs where the beach is fully covered in sunbeds like most of the beaches located on the south side of the island.


That is why I think this could be the perfect spot to enjoy the sunset with only a few tourists, the sound of the waves crashing against the beach and a fresh breeze coming from the sea.

8. Boni's Windmill:


I haven't been here for the sunset, but I passed by in the morning, and the view was stunning with the main town and all its white-washed houses seen from above.


There are some spaces where to level your car in the street above. Just make sure to get there earlier to make sure to find a space and enjoy the sunset.

This is also a magical spot where to enjoy the sunset. From there, you will see Little Venice from above, and the view at sunset time is magical (they are located on the south side of Little Venice, so you cannot miss them).

11. Armenistis Lighthouse:


Located in the north area of Mykonos, this could be an excellent option for a beautiful sunset.

There is nothing else around, so it can be tranquil and intimate, the perfect spot for a romantic sunset without the crowd around you.


This area can be pretty windy, so keep that in mind.


My advice is to bring with you a towel, something to drink and something simple to eat and enjoy an incredible Mykonos sunset.
