Mykonos is full of places to visit, especially since it is one of the most typical islands of all the Greek islands of the Cyclades with its bright white houses and traditional windmills. But not only that because it also became popular in chic and trendy destinations.
Thus, combining chic addresses but also authentic streets and lined with small traditional churches, Mykonos will delight all its visitors, whether they look for typical Greek adventures or non-stop nights on the shores of lively beaches.
Located in the heart of Mykonos, these atypical lanes are the ideal place to stroll and shop. You will be able to wind up between these streets, which consist of the whiteness of the houses, the bright colours of the shutters and the window borders, but also the bougainvilleas that overflow the windowsill... a getaway in the heart of authentic beauty and character in the Cyclades, and in particular, Mykonos.
Here you will find many small shops to bring home the perfect souvenirs of your travels to your friends and family. For a visit in a less busy and calm atmosphere, go around 10pm where the lanes empty somewhat.
You will find this wonder of the time near the port from which the boats leave in the direction of Delos. You will find the oldest church in all of Mykonos, a real hidden treasure in this avant-garde island of modernity in the Cyclades. These four whitewashed chapels are very representative of the Greek architecture of the time, namely the sixteenth century.
An interesting anecdote to know before going there: its name comes from "paraporti" which means "small door". Depending on the time you visit this building, the church is draped in different colours, a true spectacle of nature to which you must absolutely attend.
Boasting the famous Trip Advisor award, this historic site is well worth a visit. Located next to the Maritime Museum of Mykonos, you will find in this house of a rich former merchant of the 19th century, the charm typical of the bourgeois houses of the time. You will find guides who speak English and you will discover the warm and family atmosphere of this house with its characteristic mills.
Open from April to October, from 18:00 to 21:00 everyday except Sunday from 17:00 to 19:00.
Mykonos is really a beautiful island for its beaches and turquoise waters that will make you dream. Among the most beautiful beaches you can find the beach of Ornos, that of Psarrou with the whiteness of its sand or Paradise Beach for those who like to party on the beach. You will always find a beach not far from your villa to bask on your towel, perfect your tan, read a book or even build sand castles with your children.
For lovers of scuba diving, you will also find some companies that let you discover the seabed.
You will discover in this museum a collection of vases and pottery, but also other objects from pottery with "black figures".
Jewels, terracotta statuettes or tools of peasants complete the astonishing collection in this museum which should delight both the young and the curious.
This is one of the last wild places in Mykonos with the waves that come crashing on closer to the bright white houses. The name comes from the proximity of the houses to the sea but also from the influence that the Venetian Republic had in this area of the Cyclades.
Be careful though as it is one of the oldest tourist sites on the island, so depending on the period of time you are visiting this charming little area, you may encounter more or less people.
However, do not hesitate to stop for a drink or a coffee on the terrace while contemplating this unique view of Mykonos.
Open daily from 10:00 to 00:00, this modern art gallery is located in the heart of Mykonos and is a true must-see on the island. Inside you will find modern works, more original than the others, so lose yourself in the aisles of the museum to be absorbed by the psychedelic atmosphere which reigns, in a luxurious frame.
