Mykonos is an island in the Cyclades complex in the Aegean Sea. Whilst the island is well known for its vibrant nightlife, there is no shortage of attractions and things to do if you’re not a party person, since the island offers picturesque villages, beautiful beaches and excellent Greek food.
Although not in use nowadays, the iconic and much photographed row of 16th century windmills sit above the island’s main port and were once working mills which would grind the grain into flour and serve the needs of the islanders.
There are many beautiful beaches to visit with wide stretches of golden sand and crystal clear waters. Most of the beaches have tourist facilities which include restaurants, beach bars and water sports. There are also quieter virgin beaches to explore which are less known.
Mykonos town known locally as the ‘Chora’ sits in the heart of Mykonos. The pretty town’s narrow streets are lined with shops, tavernas, restaurants and bars with attractive whitewashed Cycladic buildings. If you’re looking for waterside dining, look no further than Little Venice which has plenty of little restaurants and bars where you can sit and dine whilst watching the sunset.
