From partying until the early hours to discovering hidden coves, there’s a lot to be appreciated in Mykonos. Regardless of your travel style, the Greek island of Mykonos has a lot to offer. In this post, we’re going to be sharing some of the best things to do in Mykonos. So, read on for top picks and some insider secrets.
To us, Mykonos is Greece’s answer to St Tropez or Ibiza; there is so much going on. From world-famous DJ’s gracing the super clubs and first-class restaurants to idyllic beaches and secluded hideaways, the highlights of Mykonos will have you returning again and again. From family-friendly fun to adults-only attractions, there’s much to be enjoyed. While it’s hard to whittle them down, read on to find out just some of our favourite things to enjoy on the island.
Venture to Little Venice
Little Venice is arguably one of the most scenic areas in Mykonos – if you’re in search of a prime sunset spot, this is it. Here, you’ll find whitewashed buildings that sit along the island’s coast, offering excellent views of the sea and beyond. Boasting plenty of bars and restaurants to take your pick from, you could easily spend your evening here.
Head to Mykonos Town
Mykonos Town is truly one of the best-preserved historic towns in Greece. If a day of meandering around cute boutiques and traditional Greek eateries sounds good to you, Mykonos Town is most definitely worth a visit. With a photo opportunity at every turn, you’ll lose some hours in the charming whitewashed town.
Visit Paraportiani Church
The jewel in the crown for Mykonos Town is the stunning Paraportiani Church. While Mykonos is home to 365 churches (one built for every day of the year), Paraportiani is the most famous. Thanks to its unique architecture and prime location, tourists from all over the world come to visit Paraportiani, and we think you should too.
Stroll along the Old Harbour
The Old Harbour of Mykonos is a quaint part of the island with a lot to offer despite being much quieter than the bustling Mykonos Town. Along the harbour, you’ll find a string of bars, restaurants and independent boutiques that sit alongside quaint churches, including Agios Kirykos and Agia Eleni. If you’re looking for an escape from the fast-paced hotspots on the island, Mykonos’ Old Harbour is precisely that.
Head out on a jeep safari
One of the most exciting ways to explore the entire island is an action-packed jeep safari. A typical jeep safari will take you along the rugged coastline of Mykonos as you explore remote beaches, small villages and impressive viewpoints. Whether you’re looking for some good old family fun or heading out for an adults-only day of adventure, a jeep safari is sure to put a smile on your face.
Spend the day at sea
If you’d prefer to take to the water to explore the delights of Mykonos, a magical day at sea awaits. From early morning cruises and adrenaline-packed water sports to chilled-out sunset boat trips, Dynamic Lives can organise a private boat charter that suits you. There’s nothing quite like enjoying the freedom to explore the island’s caves, beaches and attractions at your own pace, and a private charter offers precisely that.
Soak up the sun on Agios Sostis Beach
The north of Mykonos island is home to some of its most peaceful and secluded beaches. For us, one of our favourites is the breathtakingly beautiful Agios Sostis. The serene beach has no restaurants, sunbeds or beach bars, so you’ll feel as if you’re going off the grid when you spend the day here. If some serious rest and relaxation is calling, a day at Agios Sostis will exceed expectations.
Hangout at the iconic Scorpios
To many, Scorpios is one of the best beach clubs in Mykonos. If the idea of experiencing a fun yet refined beach club sounds like a match for you, Scorpios will tick some boxes. The bohemian beach club overlooks turquoise waters and a white sand beach. By day, you’ll enjoy laidback beats, fresh tapas and the comfort of your very own cabana. At night, following the famous sunset music ritual, Scorpios comes to life. With an onsite restaurant, several bars and live music, you’ll soon see why Scorpios is one of the island’s hottest spots.
Enjoy sundowners at Buddha Bar Beach
Buddha Bar Beach is known for its exotic atmosphere and laidback vibe, making it an excellent spot for those evening sundowners as you soak up some awe-inspiring surroundings. Sitting above Santa Marina’s private beach, Buddha Bar offers unspoiled sea views complemented by first-class dining and the cocktails to match. The menu is made up of a unique fusion of Mediterranean and Greek dishes alongside some house specialities. Don’t be fooled by the laidback vibe; after the sunsets, world-class DJ’s take to the decks, keeping the party going until the early hours.
Indulge in Greek cuisine
When it comes to world-class restaurants serving up fresh takes on Greek classics, you won’t be short of choices in Mykonos. Whether you head to hotspot NOA for Greek cuisine and fresh seafood or Tourlos Compass restaurant, food lovers will never tire of experiencing the restaurants of Mykonos.
