Mykonos in the Aegean is popular with those seeking a peaceful Grecian getaway that avoids the more hectic pace of life on the Greek mainland. This mainly arid island is home to just over 12,000 inhabitants, most of whom live in the labyrinthine cobbled streets of the main town, Chora. Nicknamed ‘Island of the Winds’, Mykonos also receives sunshine almost all year round, making it a popular destination for surfers. Whether you’re here for watersports, fresh local cuisine, white sandy beaches, the cooling turquoise waters or just to chill out, Mykonos wishes you kalosórisma (welcome).
Chora — Mykonos Town, known locally as Chora (Greek for ‘The Town’) is the largest settlement on the island. Chora is scattered with whitewashed cube-shaped houses, cobbled streets, authentic Greek cuisine and an intimate but active nightlife. It is also home to the famous Chora Windmills, the island’s most iconic landmark.
Agios Stefanos — Largely sheltered from the northern winds, this beachside village is probably one of the most popular on the island for those seeking a little sun. Though small, it is has many restaurants, beachside shops and other amenities and is just a short bus ride from Chora.
Ano Mera — Far quieter than the island’s other villages, Ano Mera is perfect if you’re looking to get away from the masses. Picking up the southern winds, the nearby beach of Ftelia is a hotspot for those looking to indulge in a little Aegean windsurfing.
Delos — Ideal for a half day boat trip, this island just off the western coast of Mykonos houses some of Greece’s most impressive ancient ruins. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Delos has several Greek temples, beautifully preserved mosaics and one of the most impressive marble amphitheatres in Greece.
While Mykonos is abundant with splendid beaches and uninterrupted views across the Mediterranean, it is also a haven of historic landmarks and heritage artefacts. Many of these can be found in the Archaeological Museum of Mykonos, one of the oldest of its kind in Greece. Otherwise, for some unique photo opportunities across the island, consider booking a city and island half day tour by foot and coach, where you’ll be guaranteed to visit all the best vantage points, from the highlands to the coast.
Boat cruises offer you a day of sunshine, views, food, laughter and the clear blue waters of the island’s southern coast. For a little more action, a jeep safari could certainly be on the cards. You can also take a day trip to Tinos Island, a smaller destination that is almost untarnished by tourism. If you want to see some of the local underwater wildlife, Tinos promises some beautiful snorkelling, too.
