The state of LGBTQ+ rights has made significant progress in recent years in Greece, although hardships and inequalities still persist in areas outside of the major cities. The country has undergone a widespread legal and societal transformation that has begun to improve the rights and protections for LGBTQ+ individuals.
When it comes to legal advancements, Greece decriminalized same-sex sexual activity in 1951, and in 2015, the Greek Parliament passed a law that recognized civil partnerships for same-sex couples, granting them legal recognition and many of the same rights as married heterosexual couples. However, marriage equality has still not been achieved, as same-sex marriages are not legally recognized.
The legal system in Greece prohibits discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation in employment and certain other areas. However, LGBTQ+ individuals continue to face discrimination and social stigma in various aspects of their lives. Homophobic and transphobic attitudes persist in some parts of society, especially in more remote and rural areas.
On a positive note, Athens, the capital city, has a vibrant LGBTQ+ community with a thriving nightlife scene, with an annual Pride parade that attracts thousands of participants from across the globe. LGBTQ+ organizations and advocacy groups in Greece actively work to promote equal rights and social acceptance.
Though LGBTQ+ travelers can enjoy visiting all areas of Greece’s diverse landscape, the gorgeous island of Mykonos is a particular favorite amongst the LGBTQ+ community. In Mykonos, you’ll find a plethora of gay-focused bars and clubs as well as some of Europe’s most beautiful gay beaches.

About the Hotel
This 5-star luxury hotel in Mykonos effortlessly combines natural splendour and human art. Dramatic double volumes, panoramic decks and private balconies offer truly exceptional views. With exceptional design features, infinity pools, fine dining, a superb spa, and personalised service, this hotel is a superb choice for your stay in Mykonos.
Food and Drink
A full American Champagne Breakfast Buffet awaits at the Panorama Restaurant where you can either take a seat indoors, on the covered triple-volume veranda with its beautiful stone walls, or become part of the picture-perfect view at one of the scenic tables that line the balcony. Eggs a-la-carte are complemented by traditional Greek savoury and sweet specialities, home-cured meats, locally produced dairy and a variety of low-fat and gluten-free products.
Panorama- fine dining
After dusk, take your seat at one of the best lookouts on the island. Whether you dine indoors in a dramatic triple-volume space, or alfresco on the terraced balcony poised high above the Aegean, you will delight in the imaginative interpretations of traditional fare or elaborate gourmet classics created by master chef Christos Nikolakopoulos. The produce is sourced locally from time-honoured suppliers to support the authentic character of his cuisine, and the fresh catch of the day will have ‘its head on the plate and its tail in the sea’, as the saying goes. The sommelier will be glad to advise on the impressive international wine list and rare local vintages, and as you raise your glass, you may for a moment be distracted by the glimmering lights of Elia Beach competing with the stars.
This sophisticated bar enjoys pride of place alongside one of the island’s most impressive infinity pools, set about by red parasols and deck chairs. This is the beating heart of Avaton, attracting guests to laze and linger all day and enjoy poolside cocktails or light meals while taking in the incomparable sea views. As dusk settles, the pool lights up with sparkling constellations that mirror those emerging from the inky darkness above. The amber-coloured bar is a glamorous backdrop to pre-dinner aperitifs and a popular party launch well into the morning hours.
For those rare evenings when you feel like ‘staying home’ to catch up on sleep, work or TV entertainment, we offer a delicious in-room menu with something exceptional for everyone’s taste, guaranteed to arrive as hot or as chilled as the chef would have it. Whether you wish to arrange for a private and memorable dining experience, or simply enjoy a meal that’s not on the menu, a personal chef and his team are always at your disposal, ready to demonstrate their culinary prowess and prepare your favourite dishes in the privacy of your own suite or villa. The in-house chef services also include daily fresh grocery delivery, a unique selection of coffees and teas, breakfast served by your personal chef in your suite or villa, tailor-made romantic dinners, special meals, fully-catered parties and events, as well as pool lunches upon request.
