Seven Special Places to See in Mykonos

With sugar cube houses stacked along the coastline and the beautiful blue sea below, it's easy to see why Mykonos is one of the most photographed destinations in Greece. Known for sun holidays and excellent nightlife, there's still plenty of sightseeing in this stunning location.

Archaeological site of Delos

Archaeological site of Delos

This well-kept ruin is known as the birthplace of Apollo, god of music and truth. In summer, arrive early for tours around the site and to see the lion statues of Mykonos.

Little Venice

Little Venice

There are plenty of cafes and restaurants here, so grab a table towards the end of the day to enjoy an amazing sunset. Look out for the Mykonos pelicans - an added attraction!

Matoyianni Street

Matoyianni Street

This pretty winding street is the perfect shady place to pick up designer clothing and jewelry, as well as postcards, trinkets and souvenirs of your time in Mykonos.

Church of Paraportiani

Church of Paraportiani

This Instagram-friendly Greek Orthodox church is typically unassuming, simple and painted bright white, with a domed roof. One of the best and most pretty buildings to see in Mykonos.

Castle Panigirakis

High on the cliffs of Mykonos is this historic building, now a hotel and event venue. Here, you can enjoy views right across the bay, or take a yoga class at sunset.

Elia Beach

Elia Beach

You'll pay €20 per day for two sun beds and a parasol on this popular beach with crystal clear waters. Eat at the great restaurant, or bring lunch with you to save a few Euros.

The Windmills (Kato Milli)

The Windmills (Kato Milli)

Visit this pretty Mykonos attraction for a slice of history. This site won't fill a day, but it's a nice walk from Little Venice so plan it into your tours of the area.

Planning Your Mykonos Visit

Gay travellers to Mykonos

Mykonos, Greece, has been popular with the LGBT community of the world for generations. The town offers gay bars, hotels and even gay beaches. Follow the rainbow flag to the right side of Elia beach, or visit Agrari beach, which is 'clothing optional'.

Island hopping

The beauty of visiting the Greek islands is the ease at which you can jump between them, taking in the different sights. Catch a ferry from Mykonos to Naxos, Paros, Ios or Santorini to change up your holiday. Many of these destinations can also be reached with a day trip.

Club classics

Mykonos is a quiet town, but there's plenty to do at night. Local laws on noise pollution are strict, which means you can't follow the music to find a great spot -- you need to know where you're going. Scandinavian Disco is a popular club and meeting point, but be aware, Europeans start to party late, so many won't get busy until after midnight.

What people are saying about Mykonos

Must see archaeological site, so much history and stunning!

Easy to book, check in and every step is being clarified before boarding the boat tour to the Delos Island. The tour guide was knowledgeable and allowed us time to explore and explained so much in details. however, at the end when there was time for us to explore ourselves, it was all a bit lost, no one told us what time we need to be back at the pier, and whether there were name checks to make sure everyone is back on, and so i saw so many people in fear of being left behind, they would rather cut short the exploring and stood and waited by the boat. Something needs to be done better to make sure everyone gets to spend as much time as they can on the island to take photos and check everything out. I wished there is also an option to reserve online and pay at the ticket booth, as many tourists may have sufficient cash fund with them, rather than using a non Euro currency card to pay which will incur an additional fee, which is not ideal.

The Original Evening Delos Guided Tour Reviewed by Terry, 08/31/2019

Everything we hoped for in a half-day tour of Mykonos.

We had the most exceptional tour guide in Brian, a Canadian born artist who has lived in Mykonos his entire adult life. Our group consisted of 4 lifelong friends who wanted to visit the "Shirley Valentine" beach of Agios Ioannis as part of our tour. Not only did Brian take us to this beach; but he, as fate would have it, had actually worked on the Shirley Valentine movie set and served as an extra in the filming of the movie. So he had lots of fun stories to share with us as our driver Achilles maneuvered us around the island. The tour ended with an informative walk through Mykonos Town and Brian leaving us, at our request, at a lovely restaurant on the harbor. We would highly recommend this tour.

Very interesting excursion on Delos, so small yacht for windy weather

+: Free transfer from hotel and back Very interesting guided tour on Delos (idk how to ignore it) Nice spot to swim near Rhenia -: A meal on the yacht could be more various. It was only pasta (and very small amount of fruits), so i don't eat pasta and feel little bit hungry =: It's not a matter of the tour, but the weather was windy and the sea was wavy. Yacht was so small, so we were bouncing on waves. Great applause and respect to the captain, who were keeping calm during the whole time of race. But if you have a sea-sick, you better not take this tour on a windy weather, so often in Mykonos

Gibson was a superb guide! Knowledgeable, friendly and lots of fun!

Great trek with superb guide, Gibson, and well as two fun Canadian girls! The only issue was the trek was only around 5km? I had booked the trek which stated we could continue onto the second part of the trek after lunch taking it to about 10km. This is what I wanted...a good 10km trek. This was not the case and we had to be collected at the 5km point at Fokos Beach? Our guide advised we would have to upgrade or pay more to continue but was not an option today so please be aware this is not a very long trek. More of a walk really. Still it’s great fun!

Guide was very intelligent and had a wonderful sense of humor

Probably the best guide we have ever had. She was very intelligent and really knew her subject matter. She had a wonderful sense of humor and a warm personality. Also, she had quite a memory and remembered all of our names throughout the tour!
