The Myconian Ambassador is situated just above Platis Gialos beach on the south coast of the island, renowned for its crystal water and fine sands. The famous beaches of cosmopolitan Psarou, picturesque Paranga and Agia Anna are within easy walking distance.
The idyllic calm of Platis Gialos bay belies its proximity to Chora – also known as Mykonos Town – a mere five kilometres (three miles) from the Ambassador. The town holds fascinating historical and architectural interest and has a relaxed charm, with its boutiques parading local craft alongside international fashion, its clubs, bars and tavernas that spill out onto the picturesque maze of cobbled passages between whitewashed houses, and the picturesque little Byzantine churches that emit the glow of votive candles and the sweet scent of incense. (more about Our Island). A public bus service departs from the end of the boardwalk on Platis Gialos to Fabrica Square in Chora every half hour between 8am and 4am in season (July and August), year-round during “rush hour”, and otherwise on the hour.
To experience the island’s legendary club life, take a short journey off the coastal route or by boat to Cavo Paradiso (2 km away) or Super Paradiso, slightly further afield. The party migrates from sun-drenched beach bars to open-air nightclubs pumping with all-night energy.
Ferries to the famous ruins of Delos, one of the most important mythological and archaeological sites in the Mediterranean, depart from the town harbour. Alternatively, you may choose to explore Delos, the neighbouring desert island of Rhenia or the hidden coves of Mykonos by private launch.
Please note that we offer complimentary arrival and departure transfers (to and from the Mykonos seaport or airport) in air conditioned mini-buses on all bookings made directly on the hotel’s official website.
Mykonos is an ideal year-round getaway. A typical Mediterranean climate means mild winters and long dry summers, perpetual sunshine, clear blue skies and occasional winds. Temperatures in July and August reach 32°C to 35°C.
Mykonos is easily accessible. Many international airlines operate through Athens, with direct connections out of London (Gatwick, Heathrow and Luton) and seasonal flights out of Zurich, Frankfurt, Milan, Rome, Munich and Barcelona, to name a few. The flight from Athens to Mykonos takes a mere thirty-five minutes.
Daily connections operate to and from the Athenian mainland ports of Piraeus and Rafina, as well as the Cycladic islands of Tinos, Syros, Paros, Naxos, Ios, Santorini, Andros and Amorgos. There are frequent connections to other gems of the Aegean such as Crete (Heraklion) and Samos, and the Dodecanese islands of Astypalaia, Kos and Rhodes.
