Among the many restaurants on Kalo Livadi Beach, there's one name that stands out and possibly needs no introduction. Solymar Beach Restaurant takes its name from the sun and sea and here it's all about that laid-back toes-in-the-sand, cocktail-in-hand vibe. It's the perfect nod to the Myconian way of life and this is where the global jet-set flock to for a scintillating summer. You can make a day out of your visit to this cosy spot and lounge by the shore while tucking into delicious international flavours.
On the southeastern coast of Mykonos, Solymar Beach invites you to spend the day among its crystal clear waters and golden sands, complete with dazzling views of the Aegean and Naxos Island.

In between lounging, beach dips and admiring the views, there's nothing more you'd want to do.
