The first thing that comes to mind when you think of Mykonos is the sparkling blue waters surrounding the entire island; all you want to do is lay back on a sunbed and take in these gorgeous views. A cocktail in hand, your toes in the sand and dappled sunlight piercing through a reed-thatched roof on a cosy afternoon completes this picture of the ideal summer getaway. Add to it wholesome treats you can tuck into all day and you have yourself the perfect day by the beach. That's the setting you're promised at Alemàgou Beach Bar & Restaurant – a local favourite nestled on the shores of Ftelia Beach.
Alemàgou Beach Bar & Restaurant draws inspiration from traditional Cycladic architecture. Whitewashed and dry stone walls blend effortlessly into the rugged landscape. The set-up evokes a vibe of tranquillity, which is only occasionally interrupted by a spectacle of windsurfers riding the waves on Ftelia Beach. But it's the crowd here that truly makes up the vibe. Here, you'll find the Athenian jet set and young beachgoers taking in the impressive views while soaking up the Cycladic sun. Sure sounds like the place to see and be seen!
While the dazzling sea is the focal point of the venue, Alemàgou Beach Bar & Restaurant boasts plenty of areas to drink, dine and lounge, all of which make the most of the stunning views. Championing a holistic approach to food, the restaurant serves up traditional Greek recipes with modern Mediterranean twists alongside a selection of inventive cocktails, which makes this the spot in Mykonos to enjoy rosé-fuelled afternoons, sunset tipples and decadent evenings by the Aegean Sea. In keeping with the chic, calorie-conscious crowd you'll find here, the menu is all about healthy food prepared using locally sourced ingredients – think grilled meats and seafood that will keep you coming back for more.
