For the best...
For the best sunsets in Mykonos go to the windmills, southwards as you go out of Hora, and sit on one of the many terraces there. You'll have a wonderful view of the town from above... but you won't be alone there, at leat if you go in summer!!
buses to beaches
there are 2 bus stations in town servicing plenty of places, leaving hourly or half hourly and all costing 90 cents. some beaches are by boat form others- the boats costed about 4 euros return depending on destinations.
the venetian windmills
The venetian windmills are some kind of landmark of Mykonos and you can see them in many postcards. You will have your photos here for sure and it's amazing during the sunset.
One of them is a house now and you can see them on the hill up on the right side of Little Venice area so it's great to have a photo of Little Venice too...
There are many other wind mills across the island but these here are not in function anymore.
Church of Panagia Paraportiani....
On the western side of the port town of Hora, before you get to Little Venice you will find the imposing Paraportiani. It stands in the area known as "Kastro" or castle area and it is the oldest section of the town.
Paraportiani evolved over about two hundred years beginning in 1475. Four little churches were joined together to form the lower or main area of the church and a fifth church was placed on top to form the dome that we see today.
In medieval times, the Kastro area was surrounded by a stone wall and Paraportiani which loosely translated, means inner door, was just that in terms of entry to the area past the wall.
Today it presents a formidable sight from its perch on the higher ground of the town and like the windmills, it can be seen from miles around.
