The main Mykonos attractions are the beaches, where you can sunbathe, relax, snorkel — even party. Paradise Beach is considered the no-brainer shore option here, though you should expect to be one of many tourists enjoying its soft sands. Away from the beach, tour Panagia Paraportiani in Chora, photograph the Windmills, or visit the island of Delos for its archaeological finds. Travelers also love Little Venice for its restaurants, shopping and postcard views. Save some energy for an evening out, as the island has long had a reputation for seaside hedonism.
This Chora neighborhood is known as one of the most stunning places on the island. Overlooking the southwest end of the harbor, it was here that many early ship captains decided to settle down and built uniquely magnificent homes overlooking the sea. Today, many of these historic homes have been transformed into a variety of cozy restaurants, bars, shops and nightclubs, making this a bustling place at all hours of the day.
These iconic windmills overlooking Little Venice date back to the 16th century when islanders used wind power to grind grain. There are 16 windmills in total, and while they are no longer operational, they stand as a monument to early innovation. The views here are spectacular: From this hilltop perch, you can see Chora and the harbor in the distance. While you’re here, you might want to check out the nearby Mykonos Agricultural Museum, part of the Mykonos Folk Museum.
On your way to the windmills, don’t overlook the surrounding neighborhood of Alefkandra. This historic area is a great place to stop for a bite to eat or a glass of ouzo as you head back toward Little Venice.
If you ask them, Mykonians will tell you that their island is home to 365 churches — one for each day of the year. However, Panagia Paraportiani is by far the most famous.
Soft sands, azure seas and a rowdy atmosphere have made Paradise one of the most popular places on the island.
Mykonos is world famous for its beautiful golden sandy beaches and transparent waters. There is a beach for every taste and mood. Nudists, round-the-clock party people, families and those seeking a break from the madness of Mykonos will all be able to find a beach that fits their taste.
The beaches on the south shore of the island have the best sand, view and are protected from the Meltemi, the local Cycladic wind. Keep in mind that most people begin to arrive in the early afternoon, and you can avoid the worst of the crowds by going in the morning. The north coast beaches are less developed but just as beautiful. They are less organized and crowded and most suitable for those in search of a bit of calm.
