The Mykonos Area Guide

Things to do

The staggering beauty of Mykonos makes it seem slightly unreal in today’s contemporary world. The glamorous island located in the heart of the Cyclades has a raw magnetism that many simply cannot resist. A symphony of sun-kissed beaches, dramatic wild terrain and whitewashed Cycladic architecture coupled with cosmopolitan flair and an electrifying nightlife create the perfect recipe for a sizzling holiday and relocation destination.

Whether you wish to get lost in the intricate maze of back streets in Chora, party until the sun comes up on Paradise Beach or marvel at ancient archaeological sites in nearby Delos, Mykonos will more than surpass your expectations. Here, celebrities, families, backpackers and ravers are united by one simple fact: to enjoy Mykonos unequivocally. If you decide to uproot your life to the island of the winds, you’ll embark on an exhilarating journey, one that will certainly not disappoint!

Places to eat

For Greeks, dining out is an important pastime and one that is not taken lightly. This, perhaps, explains why almost every corner of the island is littered with humble taverns, upscale restaurants and hole in the wall diners chock-a-bloc with holidaymakers and locals alike. The cuisine found on this scintillating island is one to be savoured, based on rich Mediterranean ingredients, all manner of palates will be pleased. For those missing home comforts, a multitude of gastronomies from around the world can also be found here.

From waterfront cafés with magical coastal backdrops like Nammos on Psarou Beach to the traditional hole in the wall eateries like To Maereio in Hora, you’ll be able to find well-respected venues serving up traditional Greek, international or an eclectic fusion of flavoursome dishes to suit all tastes and budgets. And if, like the Greeks, you can’t function without your daily dose of caffeine – an abundance of cafes, or Kafenions as they’re called in Greece, which also double as the local watering hole, eagerly await your presence.

Shopping

They say good things come in small packages - well this petite island certainly packs a mighty good punch! While it is diminutive, fashionistas are well catered for in Mykonos. In fact, it is often hailed as one of the number one shopping destinations in Greece. Matoyianni Street in Chora is littered with high street stores, renowned designer brands, souvenir shops and jewellers, as well as independent boutiques and craft stores. Although most shops are on the pricey side, you’ll be able to find something to suit every budget. Have your eyes on a slick pair of jeans, but can’t contain your desire to splurge until the morning? Then you’re in luck! Most shops are open until midnight during the summer period, so any late-night shopping pangs can be satisfied instantly. Many of the island’s scintillating bars and clubs are also located on this famed street. Spot a celebrity or two as you sip on your fruity cocktail and party the night away!

Getting there & around

Mykonos is well connected as one would expect, but more so during the summer months, as additional transport infrastructure is in place to cater for the influx of excited holidaymakers wishing to bask in the glorious Mediterranean sunshine.

Arrive on the picturesque island either by air or sea. Ferries and high-speed catamarans depart from Athens and the surrounding islands on a frequent basis, and Mykonos Airport is situated 4km away from Chora, which is easily reached by bus or taxi, and connects you with Athens and many of the European capitals. Once on the island, buses, taxis, cars and scooters, transport you conveniently from A to B. However, it would be wise to invest in a car or scooter as not only does this allow you to visit areas off the beaten track, it also provides you with captivating vistas on the way.

The beaches of Northern Mykonos are relatively undiscovered by tourists, mostly due to the lack of public transportation in the region. Pack your flip flops, some lunch and a map, and embark on a journey of discovery.
