With flights from Athens in under half an hour and several ferries arriving daily from nearby islands, Paros and Santorini, travel to Mykonos has never been easier. Escape the crowds at Santa Marina, A Luxury Collection Resort, Mykonos. The first luxury hotel on the island, Santa Marina has an unparalleled reputation of exceptional service, understated glamour and uninterrupted relaxation.

Overlooking the gorgeous Ornos Bay, Santa Marina Resort & Villas, crucially commands the only private beach on Mykonos, making its crystal-clear, aquamarine waters and white silk sand, a genuine sanctuary from the public eye. Pure bliss!

One of the latest addition of the resort is the luxurious Oasis Pool & Lounge where you can relax and sunk in your sunbed while admiring breathtaking views to the Aegean Sea, in an exotic ambiance.
