Mykonos beach

How to spend your time on Mykonos

Make the most of Mykono’s sunshine by lounging on one of the island’s idyllic golden sand beaches such as Elias Beach, Psarou or Paradise. Or, if culture is more your thing, Mykonos boasts several museums as well as the beautiful Church of Panagia Paraportiani, probably the most photographed church in Greece. Admire the church’s interior and then stroll down to the quaint neighborhood of Little Venice, where pretty blue-and-white houses teeter on the water’s edge.
Take the boat to the nearby island of Delos. Lying just 30 minutes away from Mykonos, the ancient island is rich in Greek mythological history, and is often pinpointed as the birthplace of Greek gods Artemis and Apollo. Awarded with the UNESCO World Heritage status for its array of ancient temples and sanctuaries, the island is well worth a visit to complement your Mykonos experience.

Your ferry crossing back to Athens leaves in the afternoon, so return to Mykonos town and walk in the narrow streets close to the harbor. They are filled with attractive small shops, Bougainville trees in purple bloom, small cafes and churches, and they usually end up at a square with a terrace restaurant and a church!
