Things to See and Do on Your Trip to Mykonos

The truth is that there are so many things to do or see in Mykonos that you would need a whole summer to explore. But as most people have limited time to spend on vacations, you may need to know in advance what is really “hot” and the things you should not miss on your trip to the magnificent, busy island of Mykonos.

Mykonos town

Chora Mykonos (or Mykonos Town) is the only city on the island and the center of shopping, nightlife and transportation. In spite of being a city, Chora has kept its traditional, Cycladic island character: the white, cubic houses, the narrow stone-paved alleys and the famous Greek hospitality. You will find out how pleasant it is to just mix with the crowd and walk around the minute you arrive on the island. You will feel the easy-going way of life and you will love the smell of the sea breeze mixed with the flowers aroma.

In Mykonos Town you will also find a lot of interesting points to visit. There are many churches built in different architectural styles, modern art galleries and museums where you will find everything about the history of the island.

Chora is also a big shopping center as some of the most famous international designers have their own boutique here, selling their latest creations.

A Stay in a Luxury Villa

Mykonos Villas are maybe the best accommodation, especially for visitors who want a more private and spacious place to rest. Decorated with elegance and great style and equipped with everything you may need, Mykonos Luxury Villas will be the perfect refuge to rest and relax. Private gardens and swimming pools, expensive furniture and amazing services will make your trip to the island unforgettable.

There are agencies in Mykonos that specialize on renting a Luxury Villa. You can ask for their services not only for finding the ideal house for you but also for organizing your holidays even to the smallest detail.

Beaches: Psarou –Paraga –Panormos –Paradise

These four beaches are the hottest ones in Mykonos. Each one has its own beauty but they all have crystal clear waters and soft, golden sand.

  • Psarou Beach: Famous all over the world for its crazy parties and the many celebrities it attracts each summer. You can eat or drink at the well-known Nammos Club, at Cavo Psarou Beach Bar or at one of the two restaurants in Mykonos Blu Grecotel
  • Paraga Beach: A lounge beach on the southern coast of the island with many sunbeds and umbrellas to hire and some good restaurants. Scorpios beach bar – restaurant offers a healthy but tasty cuisine.
  • Panormos Beach: An almost virgin beach on the northern side of Mykonos. You can either relax on a rented sun lounger at Principote Bar and Restaurant or just throw your own towel on the sandy beach.
  • Paradise Beach: Another world-famous party beach in Mykonos. The biggest clubs here are Paradise Beach Resort and Tru Paradise Club

180° Sunset Bar

Located on the top of a hill just above Mykonos town, it offers one of the best views on the island, especially during the sunset. As the golden sun rays hit the romantic setting and the castle walls behind it, you can enjoy the magnificent view of all Chora’s main spots: the Port, the Windmills, the city’s big churches, the islet of Dilos on the horizon and the great, wild landscape around you.

Experienced bartenders prepare exotic, creative cocktails for you to drink on the big terrace, next to the swimming pool. If the soft breeze gets chilly, you will be offered a blanket to warm you up.

Little Venice

This is one of the most idyllic neighborhoods in Mykonos Town. Little Venice took its name from the houses that hang on the edge of the sea, with colorful windows and doors. The deep blue of the sea and the white of the waves that forcefully break through the stone passage create a picture you will never forget.

There are many bars, cafes and restaurants in Little Venice where you can relax and enjoy the incredible Mykonian sunset. Later on you can drink some amazing cocktails or even dance at one of Little Venice bars.
