The lust list

Mykonos’s most Instagramable pools in 2024.

21 September 2023


Mykonos, known as the island of the winds, is located in the heart of the Cyclades group in the Greek Islands.

A popular party island, but with plenty of quieter space for boutique vacations, Mykonos is an influencer’s dream with its blue-roofed, white-washed homes and sparkling ocean.

Yet what is extra ‘gramable is the magnificent pools. Myconian Collection Hotels and Resorts offer sought-after spots for a social media snap, thanks to their picture-perfect decks, sublime sun loungers, poolside bars and dining, and brilliant views from the pool to the ocean below.

Here’s the experts’ list of the nine most picturesque and postcard-perfect pools to add to your travel lust list in 2024 – from mirrored surfaces to underwater bars, waterfalls, and glittering LED lights at night, these are no ordinary pools, and the poolside bars and attentive service make it easy for days to disappear into nights without leaving your poolside post.
