1. Mykonos Grand Hotel Pool Bar

Enjoy the sun slipping into the water at Mykonos Grand Hotel's Pool Bar

You’ll never enjoy a more glorious sunset than the one you’ll take in over Agios Ioannis Bay, supping cocktails under the poolside pergola at this popular chichi hangout. Candles dotted around the water add to the chilled-out evening ambience, but the main event is watching the light slip away into the sea. Of course, the candles are useful after that.

2. Scarpa Bar

Justifiably beloved and worth the relatively lofty prices, this Little Venice institution infuses its impressive mixology with heart and soul (plus loads of yummy fresh fruit). Perched right on the waterfront, it's an incredible place to watch the sun go down and then get down at yourself, thanks to beats from the resident DJs (and confidence courtesy the cocktails).

3. 180⁰ Degrees Sunset Bar

This bar promises panoramic views and it delivers

It’s set high on a peerless vantage point – hence the name – and the posh hooch, live music and snacks (such as fish tacos, octopus ceviche, and Mykonos louza, fig and goat's cheese bruschetta) make it well worth the challenging hike up. Oh, and then there's the incredible view. Beware the climb back down if you’ve had a few.

4. Elysium Hotel Sunset Bar

The Sunset Bar at this upmarket, self-proclaimed gay (but straight-friendly) hotel serves generous measures and puts on a spectacular sunset cabaret show, complete with professional dancers and hilarious drag queens to glam your evening up no end. If you can tear your eyes away from the performance for a moment, the sunset views will also add a bit of sparkle to your day.

5. Semeli the Bar

Semeli is the ideal place to end your day

A lively dance spot that mixes kick-ass cocktails with amazing sunset views, on a well-designed and buzzing terrace. Once you've seen nature's night time show, you can head inside to hit the dance floor. If you're keen for the party to continue, you can even come back for a reviving breakfast and coffee the next morning.
