When you visit Mykonos, you will find out there are so many things to do or see. According to your needs and likes, you can pick the activities that suit you best. Here we give you a short list of the things you will definitely like about Mykonos and will make your trip unforgettable.
Visit the top beaches of the island and their famous restaurants
Mykonos has around 30 beaches, and it is most likely you will never find enough time to visit them all. Especially if your time is limited, we suggest that you visit at least some of the top beaches and indulge in the relaxing, cosmopolitan atmosphere of daily life on the island. Grab the opportunity and have a meal at the famous restaurants you will find there, as this will be a fantastic experience: excellent dishes in a stylish environment next to the sea, prepared by the most qualified chefs and staff.
Super Paradise Beach
One of the most famous party beaches, it may get crowded during day or night. Among the night clubs and the many sun beds, you will find Jackie O, which has a nice restaurant with great dishes and a lengthy wine list.
Psarou is the beach with the most VIPs and celebrities on the island. Nammos is a luxury beach resort with a lot of facilities, including the famous night club and an excellent, open-air restaurant.
Paraga is another party beach but a little less noisy than Super Paradise. Scorpios give the tone to days and nights here, with a boho-chic restaurant, rituals and a crowded night club.
A breathtaking seafront has become home to the first Buddha Bar beach restaurant. You will find it within the facilities of the five stars Santa Marina Resort.
Agios Stefanos Beach
This is a peaceful, sandy beach where you can relax the whole day. Reeza restaurant at Rocabella Hotel offers delicious dishes based on traditional Greek and Mediterranean recipes.
Explore the island’s beautiful landscape
In Mykonos, you will be able to admire different views. Generally, the northern part and the interior of the island are rocky with hills, and the southern seafront is sandy and flat, with long sandy beaches and shallow waters.
Most visitors stay in Mykonos Town or the southern beaches, so if you want to enjoy the wild nature, you need to go north or towards the centre of the island.
You will find a lot of rural areas in Mykonos Town as well – like Little Venice or the Windmills. The whole island is full of iconic churches and chapels, some of which look like hanging over a cliff. The centre of the town has kept its traditional character with the Cycladic cubic houses and the narrow, stone-paved alleys.
There are still some pristine beaches on the island with very few visitors and without any tourist facilities. Some of the virgin beaches in Mykonos are, Houlakia at the northeast, half covered by unique pebbles, Tigani on the east coastline and Mirsini at the north, near Fokos beach.
Rent a luxury villa for your stay with a magnificent view
Mykonos villas for rent can be found almost everywhere on the island: from the area around the city or near the southern beaches to some remote locations. Decide which will be the best location for you and choose the villa that suits you most.
Mykonos Villas come in all sizes, with a capacity range from 6 to more than 30 guests. They are carefully designed and decorated with an elegant style in harmony with the environment and tradition. The villas are built in Cycladic architecture, which means white walls, arches, stones and wood. A Mykonos Villa is spacious and luxury and can provide you with everything you will need to relax on your romantic vacation on the island.
If you wish, you can hire a private chef or other additional staff to make your stay even more luxurious. Concierge services in Mykonos Villas are usually excellent and can cover almost anything you could need: from booking a VIP ticket to a famous night club or a table in a gourmet restaurant to organise a private tour with a luxury yacht.
