Best Places To Visit In Mykonos

While many see Mykonos as a party hotspot, there's much more to Mykonos than meets the eye. From secluded beaches to stunning viewpoints, Mykonos has a lot to offer. Whether it's your first or fifth time visiting the Greek island, you'll fall in love with its charm and many attractions. In this post, we're sharing just some of the best places to visit in Mykonos to give you some inspiration for your next trip.

Mykonos Town

Mykonos Town, also referred to as Chora by the locals, is home to picture-postcard buildings and the backdrop to match. The Cycladic town is a maze filled with small streets and whitewashed buildings, playing home to charming eateries, bars and boutique shops. You'll find plenty of bars and restaurants that are the perfect spot to enjoy some evening sundowners along the seafront. To us, no trip to Mykonos is complete without a visit to Mykonos Town.

Psarou Beach

The picturesque Psarou beach sits just 5 km from Mykonos Town and is a must-visit when you're on the island. Known as a celebrity hotspot, you'll see plenty of luxury yachts moored nearby. Thanks to turquoise waters, white sands and world-class restaurants and bars, including the famous Nammos Seaside Restaurant, you'll soon see why Psarou is so popular.

During the summer months, Psarou can get pretty busy, so if you're looking to get away from the crowds, you'll want to avoid it during prime time.

Little Venice

Dubbed one of the most romantic spots in Mykonos, Little Venice is as laidback as it is elegant. Much like Mykonos Town, the charming quarter of Little Venice is made up of whitewashed buildings boasting unspoiled views of the Aegean Sea. While it feels somewhat off the grid, there's plenty of entertainment to be enjoyed in Little Venice too. From bars and restaurants to art galleries and even clubs, Little Venice has a lot to offer.

Old Town

The islands Old Town plays home to quaint windmills and historical castles, making the hub of several of the island's most popular attractions. There is plenty in the Old Town to fill your itinerary, from Manto Square to Matoyianni Street, the Maritime Museum and the ancient Agios Nikolaos Church. When you're finished exploring, you can retreat to one of the many bars or restaurants for traditional Greek cuisine and the hospitality to match.

Elia Beach

Elia is a beautiful sandy beach located 12kms from the capital. As the longest sandy beach on the island, a lot is going on at Elia. From a vast array of restaurants and bars to water sporting facilities such as windsurfing, parasailing and water-skiing. As the last stop on the taxi boat, Elia is often less crowded than nearby beaches on the island, such as Paradise. If you're searching for a spectacular viewpoint, head up the hill to the left of the beach – you won't be disappointed.

Paradise Beach

Paradise Beach lies along the south coast of the island, just 6km from Mykonos Town. The beach sits between two equally popular spots, Super Paradise and Paraga Beach, so you can expect plenty going on along this stretch of coast. As one of the most famous areas in Mykonos, thanks to the hippie era and impressive amenities, you can expect Paradise to be fairly busy all year round. During the summer months, the beach bars such as Paradise, Tropicana and Guapaloca draw in the younger crowd looking to party.

By night, Paradise truly comes to life as world-class DJ's such as Steve Aoki and David Guetta grace the decks and take the party to the next level. If you want to let your hair down, head to Paradise.

Ano Mera Village

The quaint village of Ano Mera plays home to the restored 16th-century monastery, Panagia Tourlaini, which is a big hit with visitors to the island. Of course, there's more to be appreciated. While it's certainly not as busy as Mykonos Town, Ano Mera has the amenities to rival it while offering a much more laidback vibe. As you explore the whitewashed lanes, you'll be greeted by traditional bakeries, cafes and tavernas serving up Greek classics. If you're in search of a charming, unmistakably Greek villa, Ano Mera is precisely that.

Fokos Beach

Fokos is, without a doubt, one of the most beautiful beaches in Mykonos. As home to clear waters and soft white sands, it's the perfect place to unwind. You'll find no tourist facilities at Fokos, which means it's much quieter than the island's most popular beaches. Instead, the secluded cove boasts a very calm vibe, even during high season. If escaping the crowds is on the agenda, Fokos Beach is the destination for you.

Lia Beach

Lia is an equally impressive beach that plays home to exotic waters and white sands. Located along the southeastern coast of the island and 13 km from Mykonos Town, it's one of the boat's last stops, which goes from the town to the island's beaches. While Lia is often considered a 'quiet beach' for the standards of Mykonos, it has plenty to offer. Lia is a prime spot for snorkelling and diving as it is home to a rugged coastline and crystal-clear waters.

When it comes to amenities, you'll find two welcoming restaurants and a beach bar nearby – you could easily spend the day here.

No matter the kind of day you have in mind, you can rest assured Mykonos will cater to it. From laidback beaches and secluded coves to buzzing beach bars and bustling towns, Mykonos is the gift that keeps giving.
