It is all of the above – and many more – that one can find in just one place, Mykonos island. Here are the top 5 things you should do while you are spending some time in Mykonos.
Mykonos is a beautiful Cycladic island and, in spite of the huge growth of its VIP tourism during the last few decades, it kept the traditional character of fishermen villages and cubic architecture. Even in Chora Mykonos you will find areas with the typical, whitewashed houses and the narrow, stone-paved streets. Take a walk at these neighborhoods, mix with the crowd and enjoy the relaxation of a different way of living.
During your walk, you will find many interesting shops, boutiques and art galleries. A lot of the world’s most famous fashion designers bring their latest creations here. In Mykonos’ art galleries you will find unique pieces of art, like sculptures and paintings, made by famous and infamous artists. It is a perfect chance for you to go shopping!
Apart from the crowded Chora Mykonos, there are so many beautiful areas you can visit. You can go to one of the virgin beaches and take a walk at the wild, amazing seaside. You can visit one of the small fishermen villages or some of the many traditional churches and chapels of the island.
Enjoy the sun, the sea, the sunset
Nothing can be more relaxing and revitalizing than spending a day on one of the many amazing Mykonos beaches. Swim in crystal clear waters, take your sunbath on a comfortable beach lounger, try some water sports or just play with your friends or family on the beach.
