Allzu häufig herrscht in unserer Gesellschaft die Auffassung vor, man könne Menschen einfach nach geschlechtlichen Kategorien unterscheiden: hier die Männer, da die Frauen. Als Folge davon werden abweichende Lebensformen unsichtbar oder zumindest an den Rand gedrängt. Jene, die sie leben, geraten allzu oft unter Rechtfertigungsdruck. Wir möchten einen Platz bieten, an dem ein respektvoller Austausch stattfindet. Treffen am 3. Freitag im Monat um 19.30 Uhr in der Bar jeder Sicht.

Mein Kind hat sich mir anvertraut – was nun? Wie können wir unseren eigenen Coming-out-Prozess als Eltern eines homosexuellen, bisexuellen, transidenten oder intersexuellen Kindes gestalten?

Gay Mykonos: travel guide to the best gay bars, clubs and beaches

My Frenchman looked at me funny wondering if my drink had been spiked…

I was serious! In Mykonos, the church is where all the gay boys head to in the evening. Specifically, to the rocks surrounding the Church of Panagia Paraportiani in “Chora” (the main town of Mykonos). ‘Cause right here, on those sacred rocks, you’ll find plenty of gay lads, on their knees, deep in worship…!

Mykonos has long been not only one of the top gay destinations in Europe but in the world! This is especially true in August during the XLSIOR Festival when around 30,000 hot gay guys from all over descend on this Greek island to party. XLSIOR is considered by many as a staple in the gay European calendar together with Madrid Pride, Circuit Barcelona and Tel Aviv Pride.

XLSIOR is, of course, just one small side to the gay scene of Mykonos. Whilst it has a worldwide reputation for being a gay party island, we also found a tranquil and really pretty side to it, which is what makes it so appealing to all gay men regardless of interest, budget or age. The beaches here are stunning, with a mix of busy party beaches, nudie beaches and remote, laid-back beaches. In terms of accommodation, there is something for all budgets, from the many lavish luxury hotels, to affordable local guesthouses. Finally, “Chora“, the main town, is where the bulk of the gay scene is, especially Jackie O‘, Babylon, and the infamous cruising area around the Church of Panagia Paraportiani where I tried to get Seby to visit with me (strictly for research purposes of course!).

We’ve been to Mykonos for holiday several times, both for partying and for a relaxing beach getaway. We always have a blast every time we come! We’ve put together this detailed gay guide to Mykonos based on all our many trips here, featuring the best gay beaches, bars, clubs, events and more.

Gay Mykonos: travel guide to the best gay bars, clubs and beaches

Gay-Friendly Bars and Restaurants in Portland, Maine

Portland, Maine, is a gay-friendly city. Home to just 67,000 residents, there are really just a couple of full-time gay nightspots. The long list here is due to the amazing social scene. No matter whether you’re gay or straight, the scene revolves heavily around restaurants, and this town has an astounding number of truly sensational places to eat. 

On this list, you will find a handful of gay bars (if you’re looking for more, take a look at the nearby gay resort town of Ogunquit). There is an extensive selection of some fantastic places to eat in Portland. The restaurants listed are frequented by the gay community. This is a fun city for dining and drinking year-round, although summer and fall are especially nice. Each June, Portland hosts the Southern Maine Gay Pride, and in late October, foodies and oenophiles arrive to partake of the Portland Harvest on the Harbor Food & Wine Festival.

Das Würfelspiel

The gay area of Mykonos

The bulk of the gay area of Mykonos is in the main town – Chora. Note that despite the island’s world-famous gay reputation, there are only a small handful of gay hangouts in Mykonos. Jackie O‘ and Babylon are the two main ones, along with a few others listed below. What we love about the gay scene of Mykonos is that despite its size, the crowds spill out into the small streets outside creating a big fun nightlife party vibe, similar to the gay scene of Sitges.

And of course, a large chunk of this party crowd usually ends up roaming the nearby cruising area around the Church of Panagia Paraportiani later in the night!

During the day, most of the guys you saw partying the night before will be sleeping off a hangover and or partying/cruising/tanning/showing-off etc on one of the beaches in the south of the island, particularly on either Elia and Super Paradise. Our personal favourite is Elia beach because on the left-hand side it has a party atmosphere, complete with beach bar and lots of speedo-clad guys, whilst on the other end, it’s more private, where all the nudists head.

Gay hotels Mykonos

We always stay in a hotel in Mykonos town (Chora) so that we’re close to the gay nightlife. It’s also a handy base because it’s close to the port, the airport and is also where the public transport starts/finishes.

There are many excellent gay hotel options in Mykonos to choose from. Over the years, we’ve stayed in a mix of places, from upmarket boutique romantic hotels as well as local guesthouses from back in the days when we were a young gay couple travelling on a budget. We’ve summarised some of our favourites below, but remember, when it comes to hotels, Mykonos is NOT! It’s by far the most expensive place we’ve been to in Greece.

Best gay beaches on Mykonos

The gay beaches of Mykonos are located on the southern tip of the island, which you can reach from Chora, either by public bus/boat (around 1 hour) or rent a car/moped (30 mins drive).

The main beaches that the gay crowds head to are Super Paradise, then east to Elia (one of the most famous gay beaches in the world). Further east from Elia is Agrari, which pulls in the gay boys but starts to become more remote. Continue on from Agrari you reach Kalafatis which was the most remote of all the gay beaches we visited. We’ve put the beaches in this order, finishing with a new hidden gem we discovered in the northern side of the island called Panormos beach.

Gay beach clubs

The best gay beach club in Mykonos is, of course: The Nomadic Boys Beach Club!

That’s right, we love to grab a few drinks from the main town, pack Seby’s wireless speaker, obligatory speedos, a few rainbow flags and head over to Elia with some friends, and voila, our very own gay beach club!

But if you miss out on The Nomadic Boys Beach Club(!) the main one to check out is Jackie O’s. If you’re heading to Mykonos during XLSIOR in August, pick any beach club along Super Paradise or Elia and they will very likely be hosting a gay event.

Gay bars in Mykonos

The gay scene of Mykonos is small. Remember this is a small island of no more than around 10,000 habitants, so don’t come expecting a massive gay scene heaving with bars and clubs like you’d find in Fort Lauderdale or Berlin! Despite this, Mykonos packs a punch with the handful of gay bars it has. Note: Mykonos is very seasonal – assume most of these places are only open in the summer months from around May to October.

For first-timers to Mykonos, solo gay travellers or LGBTQ travellers who want to quickly make new friends, we highly recommend doing a .

Gay clubs in Mykonos

The bulk of the gay boys will hang out at Jackie O‘ bar first, then move on to Babylon to dance. Then as the night draws in, the gays slowly gravitate from the Babylon dance floor over to the infamous Church cruising ground next door!

There are a handful of other gay parties happening across Mykonos, especially during XLSIOR. Otherwise, most of the bars above have a late licence and will morph into a dancing venue later in the night, staying open till sunrise. We’ve set out the main gay clubs of Mykonos below. Our big tip for first-timers and solo gay travellers to Mykonos is to join a to get the most out of your holiday.

The best gay parties on Mykonos

This is a week-long festival every August, which is also the height of the summer peak season. It’s massive – one of the most famous gay events in Europe, and in our humble opinion, the world! Just imagine – 30,000 speedo-clad gays all descend on Mykonos every August to party in the sunshine. The bulk of these guys have probably just been to the Barcelona Circuit parties which take place in the preceding weeks to XLSIOR.

Highlights of XLSIOR to look out for include the opening pool party at the Elysium hotel as well as the many parties at clubs like Cavo Paradiso, which usually spill out on to the beach.

Gay cruising in Mykonos

The main cruising spot is just outside the Paraportiani Church in the main town. Yes, a church! We also gagged when we first found this out…!

Otherwise, pick any of the remote nude-friendly beaches and they’ll be a private area where lots of mischief happens. Here are some of the more popular gay cruising areas in Mykonos:

Gay friendly restaurants in Mykonos

Mykonos has lots of excellent restaurants, whether you want a late-night souvlaki, or guzzle a few retsinas with some mezedes. We’ve set out the main gay restaurants of Mykonos below, including a few gay friendly favourites we think you should have on your radar when heading over:

Top things to do in Mykonos

Tired of partying and want to do something different? For us, we always welcome a cultural injection whenever we’re holidaying in Mykonos. Beyond the gay bubble, Mykonos is actually a really pretty Greek island to discover, with ubiquitous classic white buildings set against the blue sky and turquoise waters, 16-century windmills and gorgeous ancient Churches. Yes, the infamous Paraportiani Church maybe a cruising area at night, but during the day it is, in fact, an 800-year old cultural gem that we recommend you check out!

We’ve set out some of the main highlights of Mykonos to inspire you. We’ve also suggested a few tours for each, some are gay, others mixed.

Plan your trip

We’ve put together some handy hints and tips to help you plan your trip to Mykonos. Read on to find out everything we think gay travellers should know before heading to Mykonos:

How to get to Mykonos: You can either take a 5.5-hour ferry from Athens to Mykonos or fly directly to Mykonos airport from Athens and most other destinations in Europe with budget airlines like Easyjet. The easiest way to get from the port or airport to your accommodation in Mykonos is by booking a private transfer with Welcome Pickups. We love their services because they provide professional English-speaking drivers to whisk you straight to your hotel so you don’t have to juggle your luggage on public transport.

Visa requirements for Greece: Many visitors to Mykonos will not need a visa to enter Greece and stay as a tourist for up to 90 days. If you come from another country in the EU, Canada, Australia, Japan, and the United States then you won’t need a visa, but make sure you check your personal visa requirements before booking anything.

Getting around: The main town (Chora) of Mykonos is a vehicle-free zone, so you will only be able to explore it by walking – which simply adds to its charm as far as we’re concerned! To explore the rest of the island you can use buses, taxis and water taxis. Here is a more .

Power Plugs: Power plug sockets type C and F are used on Mykonos and the rest of Greece (ie they have 2 round pins). These are also compatible with plugs for type E. If you’re travelling from within Europe you shouldn’t have a problem, but travellers from the United Kingdom, United States, Canada and Australia will need to bring a travel adaptor with them.

Travel insurance: It doesn’t matter how well you plan and prepare, sometimes things just go wrong when travelling. We recommend all travellers to Mykonos organise travel insurance so you’re protected against things like accident, illness or cancelled flights. We’ve been using for years and love them. They provide affordable and comprehensive cover, plus it’s easy to make a claim online when/if you need to.

Vaccinations: All travellers to Mykonos should ensure they are up to date with routine vaccinations for measles, mumps, chickenpox etc. Depending on where else you might be visiting in Greece and what you might be doing you may also need vaccinations for hepatitis A, hepatitis B or rabies. Make sure you check the CDC website and speak to your doctor before planning your trip.

Currency: The currency used in Mykonos is the Euro, just like the rest of Greece and the 18 other countries that are part of the European Union. The symbol for the euro is € and $1 US converts to about 90 euro cents while £1 is worth around €1.17.

Tipping culture: Since Greece as a whole (and Mykonos in particular) are popular tourist destinations, tipping is widely expected as a reward for good service. Some restaurants may include the tip on the bill so don’t tip on top of that. Generally, few euros or ten percent of a bill is a normal amount to tip for good service. You can read more about tipping in Greece here.

Internet access: Free WiFi is available at nearly every hotel, restaurant, cafe and bar on Mykonos. If you will need a reliable connection for work or want to be able to connect multiple devices, you can organise a portable WiFi device to use during your trip.

Accommodation: For more gorgeous accommodation options on Mykonos, check out We always use them to find places to stay as they have a huge range of properties at the best prices, often with free cancellation included. The online booking process is simple to use and their 24/7 online support is also excellent.

Sightseeing and adventure: There are plenty more exciting things to see and do on Mykonos besides what we’ve mentioned in this guide. We like to use to plan our adventures since they have many wonderful options, an easy to use online booking system and 24/7 online customer support.

When to visit: The peak period is the last 2 weeks of August during the big gay  however, the island is packed with family tourists as well, so consider coming in September when children go back to school. Between October and April many hotels and restaurants close, plus the weather is much colder, so it’s not an ideal time to visit.

Aurora Provisions Cafe & Market

Head to Aurora Provisions, a favorite source for breakfast and lunch as well as to-go snacks and groceries. It is perfect for stocking up before you go to the beach or out for a hike. Burritos, smoothies, scones, creative sandwiches, salads, and sweets are available. There is also a terrific wine selection. This is favorite of the West End’s large gay community and a great spot for picking up picnic supplies to take to the beach or park.

Blackstones

A somewhat dive-y neighborhood gay bar that is toward the West End side of downtown, Blackstones has been serving the LGBTQ community since 1987 and is popular for shooting pool. The crowd tends toward 40s-and-up. The bar is especially frequented by leather and Levi’s types especially members of the statewide gay leather social group, Harbor Masters of Maine, which has club nights here regularly. There’s no dance floor at this cozy pub, but there is a pretty good jukebox.

Bubba’s Sulky Lounge

It’s gay, it’s straight, it’s a little of everything. Bubba’s Sulky Lounge is near Deering Oaks Park just a few blocks from the heart of downtown. It is chockfull of bizarre objets d’art and campy decorative items (including an amazing collection of old-school lunch boxes). Bubba’s is most famous for its Friday ’80s nights. Diehards really do don their best ’80s attire (and hair) for this infectiously weird and enjoyable event. You’ll still hear ’80s tunes on the also quite popular Saturday nights, but the DJ mixes in plenty of contemporary stuff, too. The crowd ranges greatly in age, from those who remember partying in the early ’80s to those born much afterward.

Coffee by Design

Micro-roaster Coffee by Design has four locations around Portland, all of them brewing wonderfully rich, carefully crafted coffees. The Congress Street location is fairly close to the West End, arguably one of the most popular stores with the gay community. All of these cheery cafes are comfortable venues for hanging out, reading, working on a laptop, and enjoying a beverage. This cafe in the downtown Arts District is open until 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday nights, closing a bit earlier the rest of the week. The other shops are on the east edge of Old Port and in the East End. There’s also a branch in Freeport at the famed L.L. Bean flagship store.

Flask Lounge

Flask Lounge is a cool mixed neighborhood bar in the West End, right by the Portland Museum of Art. It offers a fun mix of diversions such as live music some evenings, open-mic nights, a particularly gay-popular karaoke night, occasional queer-themed dance parties, and good drinks. It’s a welcoming place, drawing an eclectic crowd that varies in style and vibe from night to night, though it tends to draw a mostly 24-44-crowd. While in the vicinity, also worth a visit is a gastropub next door, the Little Tap House, which serves stellar burgers and more finely crafted comfort fare. It has a great selection of Maine microbrews.

Front Room

A gay favorite for brunch and dinner on the east side of town, on Munjoy Hill not far from the scenic Eastern Promenade park, the Front Room is an inviting, cozy neighborhood spot open daily and highly popular morning and night, as a place to eat, drink, and mingle with locals. Brunch specialties include huevos rancheros, a grilled duck and goat cheese sandwich, and croque Madame. At night, you might nosh on house-smoked salmon pastrami, lamb shepherd’s pie, a burger with tomato tapenade, or pan-fried potato gnocchi.

Nosh Kitchen Bar

Located in the defunct White Heart Lounge space in the downtown Arts District on a trendy stretch of Congress Street, Nosh Kitchen Bar is every bit as enjoyable and gay-popular a restaurant as its predecessor. Modestly billing itself a sandwich shop, Nosh turns out artful creations like the much-raved-about Apocalypse Now Burger (topped with a patty, cheese, crispy pork belly, foie gras, mayo, and cherry jam), a delectable „Oyster Rockafella“ on a hoagie roll, and a crisp avocado sandwich made with citrus crema, cilantro, chipotle sauce, and queso fresco on naan bread. Don’t miss the „Nosh fries,“ which are dusted with bacon. It’s just the kind of food that makes utterly good sense late at night after bar-hopping. You can also grab a cocktail or beer here, as there’s a full bar, and Nosh is open until 1 a.m.

Yordprom Coffee – coffeehouse/restaurant

The West End’s Yordprom Coffee Shop is a member of the city’s LGBTQ Rainbow Business & Professional Association. It is a cute spot for organic teas and coffees including richly sweet Vietnamese iced coffee, jukebox pastries, and light Thai and Vietnamese lunch fare. The food here is fresh and healthy. You can enjoy smoothies, salads, and curries on the comfy wooden tables out back on the patio if you want.

Queer durch Frankfurt

Frankfurt am Main ist mit �ber 750.000 Einwohnern die f�nftgr��te Stadt Deutschlands (im Ballungsraum Frankfurt wohnen sogar weit �ber 2 Millionen Menschen) und blickt auf eine �ber 1200-j�hrige bewegte Geschichte zur�ck. International bekannt ist Frankfurt heute vor allem als eines der weltweit wichtigsten Finanzzentren.

Zu den Sehensw�rdigkeiten der Stadt geh�ren unter anderem das historische Rathaus �R�mer�, der �Kaiserdom St. Bartholom�us� als Kr�nungskirche der r�misch-deutschen Kaiser, das Goethe-Haus in der Altstadt und der Palmengarten im Stadtteil Westend.

Die ehemalige �Paulskirche�, in der 1848/49 das erste deutsche Parlament – die Nationalversammlung – tagte, erlitt im Zweiten Weltkrieg wie gro�e Teile der Altstadt schwere Zerst�rungen. Nach dem Krieg �u�erlich wiederaufgebaut, finden in der Paulskirche heute vor allem Ausstellungen und Veranstaltungen statt, darunter die j�hrliche Verleihung des renommierten �Friedenspreises des Deutschen Buchhandels� anl�sslich der Frankfurter Buchmesse.

Die meisten Lokale der Frankfurter Gay-Szene befinden sich seit vielen Jahren mitten in der Innenstadt, rund um die Sch�fergasse und Alte Gasse. Der kleine Platz an der Kreuzung beider Stra�en tr�gt seit 1995 den Namen des schwulen Schriftstellers Klaus Mann.

Zu den j�hrlichen H�hepunkten und queeren Events in Frankfurt geh�ren unter anderem der CSD Frankfurt im Juli, die Frankfurter Buchmesse im Oktober und das internationale LGBT-Sportturnier FVV Xmas im Dezember.

Anfang der 1950er Jahre hatte die Stadt mit den sogenannten Frankfurter Homosexuellenprozessen noch traurige Ber�hmtheit erlangt. Um die hundert schwule M�nner wurden damals in Frankfurt verhaftet, viele von ihnen angeklagt und verurteilt, einige in den Suizid getrieben. Einer der beteiligten Richter hatte sich schon zu Nazi-Zeiten bei der Verfolgung von Homosexuellen durch besonderen Eifer hervorgetan.

Zur Erinnerung an die Verfolgung von Homosexuellen durch die Nazis ist 1994 auf dem oben bereits erw�hnten Klaus-Mann-Platz das Mahnmal Frankfurter Engel eingeweiht worden, die erste Gedenkst�tte dieser Art in Deutschland.

Queer durch Florenz

Florenz, im Mittelalter ein wohlhabendes Handels- und Finanzzentrum Europas und lange von der m�chtigen Medici-Familie beherrscht, gilt als der Geburtsort der Renaissance mit so klangvollen Namen wie Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo und Botticelli. F�r ihre Architektur und Kunst weltber�hmt, ist Florenz schon seit Jahrhunderten eine der am meisten besuchten St�dte in Europa.

Die Kehrseite dieser Beliebtheit ist, dass sich die Touristen zu Tausenden im historischen Stadtzentrum dr�ngen. Unser Tipp: Abends, wenn viele Touristengruppen und Busse die Stadt wieder verlassen haben, lassen sich die Stra�en und Piazzas von Florenz viel entspannter erleben. Die Piazza di Santa Croce, die Piazza della Signoria und das Renaissance-Pin-up-Model David sind auch nach Sonnenuntergang noch sehr reizvoll.

Florenz hatte zwar schon 1974 eine schwule Disco (die erste in Italien �berhaupt), aber nach wie vor gibt es nur sehr wenige und kleine schwule Bars und Clubs in der Stadt. Gr�nde daf�r sind unter anderem die eher konservative Atmosph�re in Florenz, die extrem hohen Grundst�ckspreise und Mieten und die schlechten Parkm�glichkeiten (auf die die meisten Jungs angewiesen sind, die in der Gegend um Florenz herum leben).

Wie �berall in Italien ben�tigt man auch in Florenz in Saunen und Cruising-Bars sowie f�r einige Gay-Partys eine Mitgliedskarte. Oft ist das die ARCO-Karte (Anddos). Wer die ARCO-Karte noch nicht hat, kann sie in der Regel jeweils am Einlass erwerben. (5 � f�r drei Monate, 17 � f�r ein Jahr.) Beim Erwerb der Karte muss meist ein Ausweis mit Foto vorgezeigt werden, danach ist dann nur noch die Mitgliedskarte notwendig.

P.S.: Falls ihr euch auf den folgenden Seiten �ber das ›r‹ in vielen Hausnummern wundert: Florenz hat ein doppeltes Nummerierungssystem mit schwarzen und roten Hausnummern. Das ›r‹ steht f�r ›rosso‹ (rot).

Nudists listen up! One of the best ways to experience Mykonos AND make a whole bunch of new likeminded friends at the same time is on an all-male gay nude sailing trip with GaySail. The trip starts in Mykonos and cruises to Athens with stopovers at the following islands: Paros, Kitnos, Santorini and Aegina. They guarantee that all their crew are 100% fabulous!

Elysium Hotel

Most guys will be booking their room here. Put it this way, Elysium ticks all the gay boxes: It’s well located right in the heart of the main town, walking distance to the gay bars.

It also has really pretty airy rooms, an onsite gym, rooftop bar for sunset cocktails and large pool party area (complete with hot tub!).

Elysium is also home to the hilarious Sunset Cabaret drag show, which takes place every evening.

The gay resort is perched on a hill overlooking Mykonos town, hence the famous panoramic sunset view everyone talks about: this is the west side of the island, so you’re pretty much guaranteed a magnificent sundown every evening from the rooftop. If ever Seby and I argued during our holiday (it happens a lot, the guy’s a total drama queen…!), bringing him here for a romantic sunset cocktail always did the trick to kiss and make up!

The bedrooms at the Elysium are simply sumptuous! They are spacious, usually with a private balcony. For us, there’s nothing better than having your own personal balcony area to munch away your breakfast in peace when nursing off a Mykonos hangover!

As this is the main “Str8 friendly hotel” in Mykonos, rooms quickly get snapped up during the busy June to September period so we highly recommend booking well in advance to avoid disappointment.

STAY WITH A GAY LOCAL

Misterb&b is the Airbnb equivalent for the LGBTQ community. Unlike on Airbnb, you know your host is gay, avoiding any nasty surprises when you check in. It is also a great way to meet gay locals and discover the underground gay scene. Click below to get 10 € (or $10) off your first booking.

Cavo Tagoo

It’s got a weird name but Cavo Tagoo is one of the most luxurious and gay friendly romantic places to stay on Mykonos – we absolutely love it!

You definitely feel like a celebrity staying here – five-star luxury with fantastic service! The gay friendly hotel is built into a cliff side so you can enjoy stunning views over the Mediterranean. Many of the rooms, suites and villas even have private pools or hot tubs!

The ultimate Mykonos Instagram bucket list item to look out for here: the out-of-this-world cave pool!

I went overboard snapping away at Cavo Tagoo’s infinity pool that at one stage Seby threw my phone into the water from his floating sun lounger, reminding me of the many problems that social media addiction can cause… A few cocktails from the aquarium bar was, however, enough to calm my hot-headed Frenchman…

In terms of location, Cavo Tagoo is a short walk to the main part of Mykonos town, but they offer guests a free shuttle bus along with a free pickup and drop-off to the airport. If you need pampering, the Golden Spa offers plenty of treatments including chromotherapy! Never heard of it? Neither had we: it’s light therapy, which (amongst many other benefits) helps the body adjust to jet lag. Other perks of Cavo Tagoo include a large, modern fitness centre and an uh-maaaazing buffet breakfast with so much choice!

Rochari Hotel

Another gay gem, which isn’t quite as pricey as Elysium or Cavo Tagoo.

The Rochari Hotel is owned by the Kousathanas family who have been running it as a gay haven since opening in 1976. As such, it felt more like we were staying with our Greek family rather than in a hotel, which we loved!

The rooms here aren’t as lush as the Elysium and Cavo Tagoo, but the setting is just as impressive.

Most rooms offer a panoramic sea view, ours was Room 106 which had an exquisite view!.

If you want to splurge, we recommend booking one of the suites which have their own Jacuzzi in the private balcony. It’s perfect for a honeymooning couple, or a group of up to 5 friends sharing to spread the cost, which is what we once did.

The Rochari hotel pool area is rife with hot muscle-mary speedo-clad bodies during the peak months: if you want a break from Elia beach, we recommend hanging out here during the day for a slice of all that gay beach party action! They also have a gym and a Hammam, which gets quite cruisy in the evening.

In terms of location, it’s walking distance to the gay bars and the main port. There are lots of restaurants nearby, including the on-site (reasonably priced!) restaurant which we recommend trying for traditional Greek fare.

MyCocoon Hostel

For LGBTQ budget travellers, we recommend checking out MyCocoon. It’s one of the most impressive hostels we’ve ever stayed at.

Not only is MyCocoon the only hostel on Mykonos, it’s a “design hostel”. We found it to be super hip, stylish, yet soothing, minimal and cosy.

And the bonus? Despite being a hostel, it also has a rooftop infinity pool with poolside bar – the ideal spot to meet other gay travellers.

We found everything to be impeccably clean at MyCocoon (which isn’t always the case at other hostels we’ve stayed at!). There is plenty of storage space in the rooms along with charging sockets beside each bed. We love the little details, like how each guest gets a towel, plus a little kit which includes an eye-mask and ear-plugs, free of charge.

In terms of location, it’s very central, towards the northern end of Mykonos‘ main town. It’s around 10 minutes walking distance to the main gay bars and a few blocks away from the port. There is a small convenience store directly below – a blessing when you need to buy drinking water to help a precious Seby nurse his hangover…

Super Paradise Beach

Super Paradise used to be the sole exclusive gay beach of Mykonos, but today draws quite a mixed crowd. The far end is the gayest part, especially after 4pm around the Jackie O’ Beach Club and the Super Paradise Club. During the summer months, the beach clubs usually host some of the best gay parties – the hot muscly chiselled beach boys will no doubt be handing out flyers for these during the day.

We’ll be honest, this used to be the best gay beach for us in Mykonos when we first started coming here many (many!) years ago but more recently it has become overrun with straight crowds and families. Now we usually skip Super Paradise and head straight over to Elia beach.

Elia Beach

Elia is not only the most popular and largest gay beach on Mykonos island, it’s one of our favourite gay beaches in Europe There is always a convivial vibe, full of hot guys of all shapes and sizes. On the one side is a beach bar with restaurant, where all the action congregates (this is where you’re gonna get all your drinks from). Towards the other end, things are more chilled, more nudey and more cruisey!

The only downside is that its popularity has caught on, so each year we see more and more straight crowds and families spilling over here from the other beaches, particularly in July/August. Put it this way, the further to the end of the beach you go, the gayer it becomes!

Agrari Beach

Agrari beach is the next beach along from Elia. A rocky outcrop separates the two (where a lot of hanky panky goes on!). As Elia beach becomes more popular, more and more gay guys head to Agrari. As it’s more low key and remote, it’s also a nudist haven. The sand on Agrari beach is a bit more coarse than on Elia, but as Elia grows more popular each year, we think this is the next big gay beach in Mykonos to head to.

We suggest basing yourself at the far end of Elia beach which borders Agrari beach and head here if it gets too crowded. In terms of facilities, it starts to get remote here, but there is a restaurant at the Agrari Hotel to get food and drinks from.

Panormos Beach

Panormos is the only gay beach of Mykonos not in the south of the island. It is located 7km north from the main town. The public bus recently started coming here, which led to increased interest in Panormos beach. We found that the straight crowds and families tend to stick to the entrance side of Panormos where all the umbrellas and sun-beds are. If you continue heading to the far end of this beach it gets completely remote with lots of nudism.

We recommend coming here as an alternative to the other beaches, particularly when there is a strong southerly wind creating waves in the south.

Jackie O‘ Beach club

The Jackie O‘ beach club is the reason why Super Paradise Beach remains a gay beach hub in Mykonos. It’s a large 150-seat restaurant with an open bar, sizeable pool and Jacuzzi – just imagine the many gay pool parties that take place here every summer…! Pool parties aside, the Jackie O‘ beach club is probably one of the happening gay hangouts in Mykonos during the day when everyone comes to the beach to sleep off their hangover and tan.

Gay beach clubs during XLSIOR

There isn’t an official XLSIOR beach club, but we’ve included it here because if you’re heading to Mykonos during this big gay festival in August, then you can pretty much guarantee that every beach club surrounding Elia and Super Paradise will be catering to the large gay crowd with their own LGBTQ targetted events. Otherwise, check the XLSIOR website for details of their parties, which take place at different beach clubs around the island like Cavo Paradiso, Ftelia, Zenit and the Pinky Beach Club.

Jackie O‘ Bar

Former First Lady (and major gay icon) Jacky Kennedy Onassis famously visited Mykonos back in 1961 and fell in love with the island. She returned every summer, bringing with her a troupe of gay fans each year, turning Mykonos into the LGBTQ mecca it has now become. So strong was her mark on the Mykonos gay scene that this awesome bar is named after her.

Jackie O‘ is, today, the main gay bar of Mykonos and definitely our favourite. We especially love watching the drag shows here which happen every evening. They crack us up every time! Most come to Jackie O‘ to come the evening and will then head over to Babylon next door to dance the night away.

Elysium Sunset Bar

Elysium is the most famous gay hotel on Mykonos. The Elysium Sunset Bar, one of the hottest gay hangouts. Every evening from around 8pm, the Elysium bar hosts its “Sunset Cabaret Show” with hysterical international drag queens, handsome GoGo dancers and a live DJ set.

As well as being a fun gay night out in Mykonos, it’s one of our favourite spots to watch the sunset early in the evening before things heat up here. Due to its large pool area, the Elysium Sunset Bar becomes one of the main gay pool party hotspots during XLSIOR.

Porta Bar

Porta is a more lowkey chic gay bar in Mykonos, the sort of place to come for a cocktail in a chilled environment while the party animals are getting warmed up in Jackie O’s. The music sets the atmosphere beautifully – a mix of jazz with some upbeat dance tracks thrown in.

We like coming to Porta as a sort of respite from the heaving party scene. Although having said that, Porta does get quite busy from around 1am, especially in the summer months.

Lola Bar

A cutesy quaint gay bar in Mykonos we recommend checking out – if anything, for the very cute and friendly staff who make delicious Espresso Martinis! Dimitris and his partner Gilles are the owners who are the heart and soul of Lola, welcoming everyone with open arms, making it feel more like one big happy gay family!

Although the crowd is predominantly over 40s, we recommend Lola to people who want to make new friends in Mykonos. It’s always a warm and personable atmosphere here which is hard to resist.

Kastro’s Bar

We love this small resto/bar because of the picturesque balcony area. It’s our little hidden gem we share with you if you’re looking for a place to impress your Grindr date! It’s one of our favourite spots for dinner and/or a romantic drink because of the backdrop of the Aegean sea behind you.

Although not exclusively a gay bar, Kastro’s attracts a lot of gay couples like us who are looking for some downtime. The food at Kastro’s is also amazingly good and definitely worth trying out.

Babylon

Babylon is the most popular gay club of Mykonos, located next door to Jackie O’. We always have a ball here – there’s always a lively, fun atmosphere going strong until around 6am. Inside there is a dancing area with drag shows and GoGo dancers. Outside it has a really pretty terrace to hang out (complete with ocean spray!) where you can people-watch and gossip about who’s gone to the Church cruising ground next door!

During XLSIOR, Babylon hosts some of the best gay-themed parties. Whether you come to Babylon during XLSIOR or at any other time, we can definitely guarantee you’ll have a really fun night out here!

At54

Also called @54 or 54Bar, this is a lounge, terrace, bar and club, attached to the TownHouse boutique hotel. Whilst we love coming here for a few romantic sunset cocktails on their terrace, for us, the real highlight of At54 is their pop diva club nights. We love to boogie to Kylie, Britney and Abba, and At54 gives us that dose of gay pop disco we so crave on our holiday!

At54 also give us our dose of Greek pop gay anthems from the most famous local divas like Anna Vissi, Elena Paparizou, Tamta and Eleni Foureira. And if one of those Greek divas are in town, this is the spot they’re likely to perform just like Kelly Kaltsi did in 2016.

Cavo Paradiso

This is THE famous mega-club of Mykonos and often rated as one of the best in the world. It is located just above Paradise Beach (ie the beach on the west side of Super Paradise Beach), perched up high on a 150-foot high cliff overlooking the Aegean Sea. During the summer months, Cavo Paradiso hosts some of the biggest parties, which reminded us of some of the mega-club parties in Ibiza. The crowd is usually a mix of both gay and straight guys – and those in between!

If there’s a big gay party happening on Mykonos, such as the WE Circuit Party, then it’s likely to be at Cavo Paradiso. Our advice is to be on the lookout for the (oiled-up stuff-muffin perfectly-chiselled) GoGo dancer boys giving out flyers and discount bands on the beach during the day.

XLSIOR and other gay parties in Mykonos

During the peak summer months, there are always large ad hoc parties happening throughout Mykonos at various venues such as the Fou Club, Zenit and others. The biggest ones will be happening during the XLSIOR festival in August (like WE at Cavo Paradiso mentioned above).

The best advice is to look out for the hot speedo-clad GoGo boys who will be advertising any parties during the day at Super Paradise and Elia beach.

Elia Beach

As you approach Elia beach from Super Paradise, keep walking to the other end, away from all the sunbeds (where the straight crowd hangs out). The far end is the gay nudey part. If you continue over to the rocky area just after this, you’ll quickly locate the spot where all the shenanigans happen!

Jackie O‘ Beach Club

The Jackie O‘ bar in the Chora was so popular that they decided to expand, opening a gay beach club and restaurant at Super Paradise beach. Not only can you enjoy the beach here, there’s also a pool, Jacuzzi, bar and restaurant. We love coming to the restaurant in between sunning and swimming on the beach. Perched above the beach you can dine on a huge variety of sumptuous seafood dishes along with flavourful salads, pasta and fresh fish. There’s even a cigar menu to end off your meal – yes, a cigar menu…this is the first time we’ve ever seen a cigar menu in a restaurant! If you come for dinner, make sure you also stick around for the drag show afterwards.

Elysium Hotel Bar

We’ve already mentioned Elysium as a place to stay and a place for a drink, but it’s worth mentioning again as a restaurant as well, trust us! The resto/bar in the gay Elysium hotel is highly rated for its food, which you can, of course, enjoy alongside the stunning views. They serve simple yummy sandwiches and burgers along with ‘fancier‘ dishes. We especially enjoyed the prosciutto and melon salad, as well as some super-fresh seafood – but the gay ambience is the real drawcard here. If you come for dinner you have to stay for the nightly drag show, a couple of cocktails and, of course, the jaw-droppingly stunning sunset view!

Noa Greek Restaurant

Noa is one of the most highly-rated Greek restaurants on the whole island. We love to come here when we’re craving some authentic Greek food, especially Stefan – this is, after all, staple comfort food for him. Noa attracts a mixed crowd including lots of gay boys because it is a few minutes walking distance to the gay bars. Not only is the restaurant gorgeous, with amazing views, but the food here is sooooo goood! We could have stuffed ourselves with gyros, kebabs, lamb chops, grilled octopus, souvlakis, tzatziki and baklava all day long, but then we’d need to roll back home! As excellent as Noa restaurant is, we also like the fact that it’s not too expensive either (at least for Mykonos standards!).

Lalala

Lalala is one of the most popular places in Mykonos to go for a gay brunch! We certainly rate it as our favourite breakfast/brunch spot. Why? Their pancakes are famous for being the best on Mykonos (trust us!), the coffee is superb and if you want something a little healthier, we recommend the Greek yoghurt with fruit and honey. Like Noa, Lalala is close to the gay bars and hotels in Chora, which makes it a popular choice for the gay boys looking for a place to grab a bite to eat before heading down to Elia beach. It’s owned and run by two (super cute!) brothers, who are just the loveliest guys you’ll ever meet!

Explore Mykonos town – Chora

The number-one thing all travellers to Mykonos will (and should) do is, explore Chora. Chora is Greek for “town” and is a way to specify whether you’re talking about the island Mykonos or the main town which is also confusingly called, ‘Mykonos‘! Here you will find picturesque white buildings (think Meryl Streep in Mamma Mia), the famous windmills, the main harbour and the pretty area known as Little Venice. If it’s your first time on Mykonos, we highly recommend joining this gay tour which will take you to all the main sights, and, bring you face to face with Mykonos‘ most famous resident: Pedro the Pelican! Doing a gay tour is also a fantastic way to make a fantastic new group of friends who you can then party with for the rest of your trip.

From whitewashed villages to bohemian chic retreats and beaches with crystal clear waters Mykonos is a gay’s summer paradise. Mykonos offers a party scene that lasts for almost 24 hours straight, during the whole course of summer. You should definitely visit the Super Paradise beach, which was once the biggest gay beach on the island.

I loved the night life in Mykonos! Being able to party on the beach is so much fun, I loved my time on the island

Mykonos can also be reached with high speed boats from Athens (either Piraeus or Rafina ports) in 2.5 to 3 hours!

Lots of happy cruising around Paraportiani church at night or Elia rocks and hill (naked) during the day. Much fun!

Lola is a great bar aswell. I missed it on your site. We had a lot of fun there last week. We met a lot of paradisebirds there.Unfortunately, the pianobar is closed.

Hi Niels thanks for the comment! We’ve updated the article 🙂

.. you wonderful guys, the recommendations you have are nice but i miss one of the best gay bars, Lola Bar, Zanni Pitaraki 4, Chora, very nice staff, charming owner, good music and guys from all over the world, luv this place ???? kind regards Hans

Hello, Bonjour and Welcome to our travel blog. We are Stefan and Sebastien a French/Greek gay couple from London. Together, we have been travelling the world for over 10 years. Nomadic Boys is our gay travel blog showcasing all our travel adventures as a gay couple.

Zum ersten Date

Am besten wählen Sie für Ihr erstes gemeinsames Treffen einen neutralen Ort, so dass beide die Möglichkeit haben, im Falle eines Misserfolgs des Dates, ohne größere Peinlichkeiten diesen zu verlassen (siehe auch: Tabus und Etikette bei Ihrem ersten Date). Am besten eigenen sich hierzu ein Café bzw. eine Bar oder eine Veranstaltung mit Gesprächsmöglichkeiten. Ein Kino ist eher ungeeignet, da sich dort nicht die Möglichkeit ergibt mit Ihrem Datingpartner zu sprechen. Mehr Tipps erhalten Sie im Ratgeber Geeignete Date-Location: Wo trifft man sich am besten mit seinem Flirt? Auch hier gilt wieder: Wenn Sympathie beim Treffen gegeben ist, kann sich immer noch die Option ergeben, den Partner auf einen „Absacker“ noch mit Heim zu nehmen oder zu begleiten. Viel Erfolg mit der Kontaktanzeige, der Rest liegt nun in Ihrer Hand! 🙂
