Mykonos, Greece - Scorpios Beach Club

The newest addition to the beach club scene, and the most talked about this summer, is Scorpios Mykonos. The property blends perfectly into the surrounding landscape, with indoor and outdoor spaces flowing seamlessly from the main house to the restaurant, beach terrace, and wide open view of the Aegean Sea.

At the heart of the property is the 200-seat rustic chic restaurant, which was always jam packed and buzzing on the two occasions I visited. The food centers around healthy dishes with Greek influences and included fresh salads, homemade pastas with seafood, and large cuts of meat.

Scorpios offers so many interesting spots to escape to, from a hammock hung by the bar in the main house, to different cabanas and sun beds on various terraces, and couches dotted in both shade and sunlight, all with their own unique views. 

Having woken up at 2:30am for a 6:00am flight from London to Mykonos, as soon as I arrived at Scorpios I planted myself in this outdoor hammock. Rocking back and forth thanks to the wind that day, I slipped in and out of consciousness as the boats bobbed by on a turquoise blue sea below while chill music piped in from a speaker somewhere behind me: perfection!

Come 8pm the sunset ritual begins at Scorpios. People fill the terrace to watch the sun go down over the sea, cocktail in hand, and live music or well-known DJs perform for all to dance well into the night.

If you're going to be in Mykonos, Scorpios is not to be missed. You can laze away an entire day here and then stay for dancing and dining in the evening. It really is a fabulous addition to the island.
