You can't have what you want .... you have to either stay in/near Mykonos Town or at a beach area, and travel between the two. There is only one beach at Mykonos Town, Megali Ammos, and it's not one of the destination southern coast beaches for which the island is famous.

If you stay in Town, you can reach beaches by bus in the daytime. If you stay at a beach, you can take a bus into town in the evening (and taxi back to your hotel if you stay out enjoying the nightlife later than the last bus back to the beach).

This is the town centre, within the inner bypass. There is another bypass out from there and quite a lot of accommodation at varying distances.

Mykonos is small. If you choose one of the popular beaches that has a good selection of restaurants and bars right at the beach or nearby (Platis Gialos being the best of the bunch for this feature, Ornos next best), you will be less than a 15-minute bus ride from Town.

Platis Gialos is walking distance to four other beaches so that's another big plus for that location.
