Most Viewed Things to Do in Mykonos

  • 1. Delos Island

    A must-see day trip from Mykonos is to take the boat to Delos, birthplace of Apollo and the largest city in the world at one point. Its history goes back to 3000 BC, and the remains are in excellent...

  • 2. Paradise Beach

    This place is AWESOME! It's a total scene from morning 'till night. The beach is pretty rocky, but you can rent a chair for the day. Don't e afraid to bargain low. They would ask for 4EUR/chair, and...

  • 5. Church of Panagia Paraportiani

    This small and discreet church is a very uncommon construction: built from the 15Th to the 17Th, it is only the visible part of an ensemble of five chapels, four of them underground. Security reasons?...

    If it's water-skiing, para-sailing, windsurfing or boating that you like, then Elia Beach is the place for you. This is a lovely long sandy beach on the South Coast of Mykonos and there are plenty of...

  • 7. Super Paradise Beach

  • 8. Watching Sunset

    Although Santorini has traditionally captured the top place for the most beautiful sunsets in the Greek islands, the sunset in Mykonos has magical moments to offer. The best place to catch the sunset...

  • 9. Wind Mills

  • 11. Platys Gialos Beach

  • 12. White Churches

    Depending on where you do your research you will get varying tallies for the numbers of little white churches on Mykonos. I've found numbers ranging from 250 to 365. Why so many? You may well ask. The...

  • 16. Archeological Museum

    Located next to the port it was hard for me to miss this museum. Not busy at all (most people come to Mykonos for party anyway) it was very interesting to stroll around this small museum. The staff is...

  • 17. Aegean Maritime Museum

    In a little room you will find the Maritime Museum simple but fascinating. An old lady who speaks only greek will try in any way to explain you all the things inside... fortuntaly there are signs with...
