One of the most difficult aspects of booking a Greek Island tour is the sheer volume of remarkable islands available to be explored! Remarkably, there are over 6,000 islands in the country, with over 200 inhabited, and each has its own distinct personality.
When you’re planning your holiday itinerary, consider adding the Greek island Mykonos to the list. Mykonos has a formidable reputation, and when you arrive on the sandy, sun-kissed shores, you’ll realise it’s not undeserved! The island, which boasts the world famous Paradise Beach, is also a beautiful dichotomy of fashionable cafes, vibrant nightlife and cobblestoned fishing villages.
Here is a guide to our favourite hot spots to visit on Mykonos, when you’re on your Greek island tour.
Top Things To Explore When On The Greek Island Mykonos
Explore Mykonos Town
Mykonos Town is the island’s most celebrated tourist destination, and rightly so. The town is a charming blend of startlingly white houses (most covered with colourful flowers), iconic windmills and stylish shops and cafes. In particular, the area of Little Venice is a must see, and any decent Greek island tour will incorporate a visit to this fashionable spot!
Visit The Byzantine Churches
At the heart of Mykonos’ lively tourist scene lies a devout, Catholic heart; and this is exemplified by its churches. The Church of Panagia Paraportiani is the highlight of the island; with stark, whitewashed walls on the exterior, which contrast delightfully with the cool blue walls and rich gold decoration within.
Take A Boat Tour
Mykonos has a spectacular coastline, and one of the best ways to explore it is by boat. The cooling sea breeze and gently bobbing waves create the perfect relaxed ambiance to appreciate the hidden coves, sparkling waters and stretches of uninterrupted golden sand. If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, book a boat trip to neighbouring Santorini, which is famous for its blue-roofed dwellings and picture postcard-pretty streets.
Dine In One Of The Fine Restaurants
If there’s one thing the Greek island Mykonos gets absolutely right, it’s the cuisine. The island offers a tempting blend of freshly caught seafood dishes, tasty local prosciutto and smoked cheeses. Make sure to find your table in one of the restaurants by the coast, and enjoy a typically Greek meal whilst watching the sun set over the waters beyond.
