Things to Do in Mýkonos City

Mykonos Town
Whitewashed houses garnished with bursts of flowers form a tangle of streets around Mykonos Town’s Cycladic-style centre. Most of the town is pedestrianised during the day, so it’s ideal wandering territory, peppered with shops and cafés. Linger by the waterfront at sunset and watch the sky’s orangey hues melt into the horizon in the Little Venice quarter, or from the site of the town’s iconic windmills.
Mykonos Windmills
Once used to provide wind power to the coastal town of Mykonos, this cluster of 11 towers remains solely as an icon perched on the hillside of the seaside spot – and a pretty photo-snapping spot. Dating from the 16th century, they stopped providing power to the island in the 1960s and now cast a dramatic shadow against a gorgeous coastline.
Delos Island
Jump on a boat from Mykonos to this sacred site that plays homage to Greece’s iconic past. Showcasing relics from the Hellenic, Archaic and Classical eras, the settlement took root in the 3rd century BC. The excavations that uncovered these treasures also unearthed mosaics, statues and frescoes from a bygone era, which earned the island its UNESCO Heritage Site status.
Nammos Mykonos
Located on the beautiful Psarou beach in Mykonos, it combines culinary excellence and impeccable service with stunning views of crystal blue waters and an incredible ambience.

A vibrant and lively town, very pretty with some great restaurants. Traffic is not allowed in the centre of town which consists of winding lanes and pretty squares and a lovely harbour front area. Very pretty and scenic. It is worth taking a trip to some of the beaches around the island.

Mykonos is one of my favourite towns and islands as its has a mix of things to do including great nightlife, fabulous shops, high quality food and lovely beaches and beach bars. The old town is beautiful and very well kept.

So easy to get around, just as easy to get lost in the maze. A few days in though, you will get your bearings! stay in Mykonos City and take buses to beaches, by far the best decision we made!

Mykonos town is a maze of narrow interesting alleyways with extensive upmarket shopping available- although expensive. A big party scene at night and touristy during the day.

Recommended in Mýkonos City

The drinks are very expensive, though they are the same throughout all the venues. As most people drink standing outside the venues (probably due to the music being played way too loud) then you can buy your drinks from the local little kiosks and shops. In the bars a bottle of Smirnoff Ice is 8 Euro, the kiosks sell them for 3 Euro and we found one of the shops sold them for 1 Euro 60 Cent.

There are plenty of cafe/restaurants to choose from and as such the prices can vary. It is well worth walking around the streets and checking out the comparisons. In 10 days we were there we never ate in the same venue twice, and would happily eat at all but 2 of them again. The two we would not eat at again were not bad places but we didn't really enjoy the way the food was cooked.

The Super Paradise beach is fantastic, the facilities are great and the beach is in a cove. There are regular buses from the bus station near the port every 30 minutes (it is a 15 min trip) to the beach and it costs 5 Euro each way. The beds and beach brollies are 4 Euro each per day to hire.

Castle Panigirakis was marvelous I strongly recommend to everyone.

little venice, elia beach, narrow, maze-like and elegant streets

Go at the end of the season!

Clear water. Blue color.

Little Venice :)
