  • Mykonos, Greece

Mykonos belongs to the Cyclades group of islands. Although it has acquired a reputation as a fun place to spend time in, there is much more to Mykonos than its nightlife and excellent beaches on a Greece vacation. The main town of Mykonos, also known as Chora, is very picturesque with its maze of narrow streets and harbour area. The streets are full of shops, boutiques, art galleries, cafes, bars and restaurants. As you stroll through the narrow streets, you will pass by whitewashed houses with colourful doors and window frames, bougainvillea trees in bloom and hidden churches. On the lively waterfront where the ships dock, there are fleets of fishing vessels bobbing up and down.

The Panagia Paraportiani, in the town, is a very impressive church in the Byzantine style dating back to 1425 but not totally completed until the 17th Century. There are several good museums in Mykonos and include the Archaeological Museum, the Folklore Museum, the Aegean Maritime Museum and the Agricultural Museum.  The names indicate exactly what is exhibited in each. The pedestrian shopping streets of the Hora are always busy and the most glamorous of all is Matoyanni Street, lined with brand name stores, charming cafés and stylish restaurants.

On trips to Greece, one of the most scenic parts of Mykonos is Alefkantra or “Little Venice”, an 18th Century district, dominated by mansions with colourful balconies and stylish windows. Little Venice is known for its picturesque medieval houses which literally hang over the edge of the sea. The sunset here is renowned and it is a good time to sit and drink your favourite beverage while watching the sun go down.  Relax at a waterfront café and admire the view of the quaint windmills standing imposingly on the hillside above, set against a luminous blue backdrop. These windmills are a trademark of Mykonos. They are dotted around the island but most of them can be found around the town. They were originally built by the Venetians in the 16th century to mill flour. 

 If you are looking for the most lively and active beaches on a Greece vacation, then head to Paradise Beach and Super Paradise Beach where you will find more active lifestyle attractions plus nude and gay beach areas.  There are quite a few other beaches offering a more sedate Greece vacation. If you want to get away from everything, go to Ano Mera, a small typical Greek village in the centre of the island which has a monastery and a few tavernas. 

The island is a paradise for water sports enthusiasts and attracts surfers and sailors from all over the world. There is a great choice of beaches for windsurfing on Greek vacations such as Korfos, Ftelia, Meyali Ammos and Kalafatis, where surfing lessons are also available.
