Where to rest your head | All Things to do  
 
Walk around Chora Village

With windmills and great restaurants, this village is on the west side of the island and worth a visit. It has whitewashed cubic houses with wooden colored doors, windows and balconies, narrow streets forming a labyrinth, beautiful churches, lovely chapels and purple bougainvilleas contrasting with the bright white of the buildings walls. 

Little Venice

This side of town is called Little Venice because the houses here are built on water. It’s a nice place to spend some time having a meal or a coffee. There’s a great view of the windmills to be had from here too. This neighborhood is replete with elegant and gorgeous old houses that are located precariously on the edge of the sea. Many discerning travellers in the past have fallen in love with this charming quarter due to its magnetic appeal. Quite amazing are the sunset views from Little Venice. Its whitewashed edifices against the backdrop of the azure blue Aegean Sea is simply marvelous. No wonder, Little Venice is today among the most photographed tourist neighborhood in the whole of Europe. 

Rate the Beaches

Elia Beach offers the longest stretch of white sands in Mykonos, this beach also has transparent waters and plenty of tavernas and bars from which to choose.Besides Elia, there are plenty of other beaches in Mykonos. The three popular ones are Paranga, Paradise, and Super Paradise. Paradise is the most popular among backpackers and is where they party each night

Go scuba diving in the Night

If you are a diver, consider taking a few dives while you are here. You won’t find a lot of coral but you’ll find lots of fish and even a few wrecks.During a night dive you can discover a different side of this world and you can experience it from a completely different view.It is an unbelievable feeling to discover the mysteries held underwater when the sun goes down. The diver can experience a different underwater environment at night diving, because many marine animals are nocturnal. You’ll find that there’s nothing to worry about and that night diving is usually much more relaxing than diving during the day

Visit Delos

A small uninhabited island close to Mykonos, Delos is known for its important archaeological sites. The huge site sprawls along the island’s west coast, from the stadium placed in the north to the old trading warehouses to the south. Standouts include the Sanctuary of Apollo temples and the Terrace of the Lions. The remains of private houses surround the semicircular Theatre, and the site includes several agoras, monuments, sanctuaries and temples. You can see finds from the excavations at the site museum, including the original lions from the much-photographed Terrace of the Lions. Another must-do is the climb up nearby Mt Kythnos for views over the island, sea and site.

 

PanagiaParaportiani

In the western and oldest part of Mykonos town stands this Byzantine church, which dates back to 1425. There are over 400 churches to see across the island, but this is considered the highlight of them all. The church actually consists of five other churches built in 17th century. It is the most photographed church in Mykonos, famous for its unusual shape and architecture. Some kilometers from the capital of Mykonos stands the beautiful monastery of PanagiaTourliani, known for its remarkable architecture and rare icons. Inside the complex is the Ecclesiastical Museum of Mykonos displaying holy vestments and nice items. 

Tour the Museums

There are a number of different museums here, but most of them are only open from April to October. In Mykonos Town alone, there are six – The Archaeological Museum, Floklore Museum, The Boni Mill, Lena’s House Museum, Agricultural Museum, and Aegean Maritime Museum. 

Food and Restaurants

In Mykonos Town you will find plenty of the restaurants and cafes. All over town there are various gyros and souvlaki shops and creperies where you can eat quite well for just a few Euros. Mykonos offers dining options catering to a range of tastes and budgets. You can have good Greek food at reasonable prices. Restaurants facing the harbor or the sea (especially in Little Venice) tend to have significantly higher prices, because you are also paying for the location and the view. Restaurants in the streets deeper in the heart of town tend to be more reasonably priced. Mykonos can offer great food any time of the day.

 

Watch the Sunset at the Windmills

The windmills around Mykonos town are symbolic of the island, and also happen to be the most popular place to catch the sunset. Prepare for crowds if you plan to go; head over there early to get a good spot.

 

Go Eco Snorkeling

Even if you’re not a diver, you can still check out some of the underwater activity by renting some snorkeling equipment. Eco Snorkeling is a program in collaboration with Marine Conservation Greece in order to start a trip to discover the beautiful inhabitants of the sea! Discover the best parts of underwater kingdom; learn how to reduce your impact on marine environment.

Take a Boat Tour

Although this may not be a budget-friendly option, it’s a relaxing way to spend the afternoon. Depending on what you’re looking for, you can consider a variety of prices and options. You may want to arrange a private sailing trip, or a tour on one of the island’s glass-bottomed boats.

The best time to visit Mykonos is during spring and autumn when temperature comfortably stays around early 20s.
