Inspired by its surroundings, JackieO’ offers a minimal aesthetic defined by a muted colour scheme and the sensual curves of the island. The curvacious loops and arcs that make up the beach club were hand-sculpted by co-owner Carsten Stehr using traditional Cycladic white washed cement and stone. The Jackie O’ Beach Club offers some of the best views in Mykonos, with the Jackie O’ flag overlooking the Aegean Sea being one of the most Instagrammed spots on the island.
