    Wander the streets of Mykonos Town

    by wadekorzan Written Jul 21, 2007

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I'm sure that you don't need me to tell you to wander the streets of Mykonos Town, because surely you're going to do this anyway. I suppose the best way to help in this tip is to share my experience with you, and then you'll make your own experiences. You'll soon find out that the town is a maze..a labyrinth of small streets leading off in all different directions. Throw away your map and just enjoy getting lost. We were on Mykonos for a week, and we went to Mykonos Town 6 of our 7 nights. Being there in the evening is really the thing to do--because in the daytime everybody is at the beach and generally it is very hot in the day time. Most people spend the day at the beach and go to town at night. I would recommend to go once during the day, because there are very few people and you can really enjoy wandering those streets admiring the charming architecture and getting some great photos. I also recommend to come back many times, there is always something new to see, you just have to go down streets where you have not been before....I wish I could describe it....there is a magic to this place. There is great shopping, fantastic restaurants, cool bars and discos, there's something for everyone.

    Explore the tiny streets by day and by night

    Ornos beach

    by hydronetta Updated Feb 27, 2007

    Ornos beach is situated in front of a small fishing village just 2.5 kms south of town making it therefore the closest one to Hora (sse map pic) . It has fine sand but, unfortunately it is often overcrowded and much developed for everyone's taste as there are sun beds and umbrellas for rent, a diving school, sea-skiing and windsurfing are available on the beach; on the shore of the bay a huge hotel complex offers various restaurants and bars. There are hotels in the nearby area if you choose to stay there.
    Ornos is reachable by local bus (just 10 minutes ride), frequently leaving from the capital

    Sunset

    by DG4ever Written Jun 22, 2006

    It is so fun to sit and eat a reasonable dinner, watching the sun set and the people walk by. The restaurant was by the sign that said international press, about halfway in the harbour area. I don't remember the name but they were very nice.

    Top 10 things to do on Mykonos

    by sierralyndon Written Aug 28, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    1) Wander around the winding, narrow streets of Mykonos town and get yourself lost for the first hour or so

    2) Have a drink at Little Venice - warning: choose seating wisely - some places are smelly from the sea beneath the houses

    3) Look out for the pelicans - mascots of the city

    4) Eat lots of seafood

    5) Watch out for locals obsessively painting white lines on the pavements in front of their properties

    6) Visit the windmills

    7) Visit the ancient Panagia Paraportiani church

    8) Visit the lovely beaches

    9) Go to Delos? We unfortunately didn't manage to make a trip there

    10) Look out for the Starbucks on the way from or to the airport. What is it doing there in the middle of nowehere?

    While walking through the narrow streets of Hora, you will see beautiful pink and hwite oleanders, scarlet hibiscus and fuchsia boungainvilleas climbing up to the balconies.

    The colors are beautiful against the white walls of the houses.

    Search for Peter the Great

    by DrexelDragon Written May 20, 2005

    Mykonos has two community pet Pelicans, male and female. They waddle down the street right next to you as if you're not there. It's cool, because it's as if they're a cartoon character. They're used to people, but don't try to caress and fondle them. I saw one snap at a woman.

    They seem to hang out around Niko's Tavern a lot.

    The Hora

    by DrexelDragon Written May 20, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The funnest thing to do, in my opinion, in Mykonos Town is to get lost in the Hora. It's a maze of white washed buildings and outlined streets. Every one of the 5 days we were there, we would find a new street that we had not been down. You can come across some great finds just by getting lost. The smell of food, flowers, and salt air makes its way thru the narroways, and it makes it a great place to walk around. Also great for picture taking.

    Welcome to Mykonos.

    ANOTHER TYPE OF DREAM

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I found all sort of people and characters in this island. You often hear how popular greek islands are for WEEDINGS. In my trip to Santorini I witness a traditional local weeding. But like I said, Mikonos is sophisticated, and this is how they do it here!

    People storm in and out of supermarkets. They already know what they want. In, select, pay, out. Quite simple these days.
    This innocent boy was standing at the candies isle. His face says it all. He could not beleive what was in front of him. I think he was there for a good 5 minutes, just staring....

    All the town is painted in whites and blues. Stroll along its charming streets and get the feel of the fishermen. Very romantic.

    Even the most avid shopper could become overwhelmed with all the gift, clothng and jewlery shops on Mykonos. The shops are lined along the cobblestone streets and the white washed houses.
