7 things to do and see in Mykonos

Cyclades ● Mykonos ● 05 March 2017

Mykonos is considered as the most cosmopolitan spot not only in Cyclades, but also in Greece. A picturesque town, amazing beaches, the vivid nightlife and the gay-friendly attitude are only some of the things you will appreciate in Mykonos. Just buy now the Greek Island Pass and get ready for the best Greek Island Hopping in Mykonos and generally in the Cyclades!

1. Chora

Mykonos Town or Chora is the main town, the capital and the port of the island. It is not an exaggeration to say that Mykonos Town is the most beautiful Chora in Cyclades. Traditional architecture, Cycladic white houses with blue windows and numerous marrow streets with every shop you can imagine. Walking around Matogiannia, the pebbled streets of Chora that remind of labyrinth, is a true summer experience that you cannot find on any other island. Cafes, bar, restaurants, souvenir shops and haute-couture are around you, and it is really difficult to choose the best place.

2. Little Venice

Little Venice is considered one of the most romantic spots on the island and Chora, and many people gather here to see the sunset. These fishing houses line the waterfront with their balconies hanging over the sea. Can you imagine a better location to drink your cocktail with your beloved one?

3. The windmills

The hill with the traditional windmills above Chora provides a breathtaking view of Mykonos Town and Mykonos Port. These windmills have been restored and have become the trademark of the island, where many travellers take photos of the amazing scenery.

4. Peter the Pelican

Peter the Pelican is the mascot of Mykonos. A few decades ago, a fish man took care of a wounded pelican, who surprisingly, when he was cured, he didn't leave the man, who saved him and called him Peter. Although this pelican has passed away, today, there are many pelicans walking around the paved paths of Chora with the same name.

5. Delos Island

Delos is a small island, which can be reached by boat from Mykonos Port within 20 minutes. It was a sacred island for the ancient Greeks, as, according to the myth, God Apollo, the God of Sun, was born there. The archaeological findings of Delos are important and have been declared as World Heritage Site, protected by UNESCO.

6. The nightlife

The nightlife of Mykonos is famous all over the world. Bars, luxury restaurants, beach bars and clubs are everywhere in Mykonos Town, Little Venice and on every beach of the island. Day doesn't begin before 12 o'clock, and night ends only when the young people want to go on the beach. The whole island is a huge party, and the fun is endless.

7. The beaches

The beaches of Mykonos are amazing. Long and sandy, surrounded by a beautiful landscape with turquoise waters offer you the opportunity to feel the authentic Greek summer. All of them are organised, with sunbeds, hotels, restaurants, beach bars and other tourist facilities.
