Mykonos is an eclectic place - pristine beaches, elegant boutiques, fine dining, and rowdy bars are all packed onto one tiny piece of land, a mere 15km long at its widest point. Partying is a round-the-clock affair here, against a scenic backdrop of whitewashed houses and Little Venice, Mykonos Town's most charming neighbourhood.

Little Venice
Mitropoleos Georgouli, Mykonos Town

This scenic neighbourhood is a delight both day and night: stroll along the waterfront and get a feel for the town while taking in the distinct local architecture, sit down for a seafood lunch or dinner with a view (over the blue waters and iconic hilltop windmills), or explore the bar scene after sundown.

Paradise Beach, Mykonos

If beach parties are what you're after, Mykonos will not disappoint. Check out the famous Paradise Beach and/or Super Paradise Beach for some of the hottest waterside bars and clubs that never sleep (dancing is often in full swing in broad daylight!). For a more relaxed, quieter experience head to Elia, Platis Gialos, Ornos, Panormos, Paranga or Agios Sostis Beaches – the latter is a true hidden gem tucked away far from the frenzied crowd in the island's north.

Kalogera 10, Mykonos Town

Tucked away in the windy maze of the town's streets is M-eating, an upscale dining establishment that serves top-notch Mediterranean cuisine. It's hard to go wrong with your order at this award-winning restaurant, but opt for sea bass or veal and you will surely not be disappointed.

Sakis Grill House
Kalogera 7, Mykonos Town

On an island where food tends to get a bit pricey, Sakis is a true hidden gem for travelers on a budget. The place serves Greek fast food (pita, gyros, salads, fries and, of course, souvlaki) and is one recommended by locals who are frequent customers.

Matoyianni Street
Matoyianni Street, Mykonos Town

Stroll through Matoyianni Street and venture out onto one of its many narrow side-lanes to explore just how much beauty is hidden in Mykonos Town's labyrinth of brilliant white-colored houses. The street is lined with designer boutiques, souvenir shops and enticing restaurants in tiny squares that seem to spring out at wanderers at every turn.

14 Polikandrioti Street, Mykonos

The Mykonos instalment of this nation-wide chain sells high-class, superb quality jewellery inspired by Byzantine motifs. Designs clearly ring back to ancient times, and some are actual replicas of originals discovered during archaeological exploration of the area.

Mykonos Island National Airport
Mykonos, Greece

Mykonos has its own airport, direct flights are available from multiple European destinations. To travel the 4km to town, use one of the taxis right outside the airport terminal, or a pre-arranged transfer (some hotels pick up guests directly at the airport). Bus service to the city (southern bus station) is also available, but is infrequent and runs on no definitive schedule.


Greece can be visited visa-free for up to 90 days by citizens of most European countries, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia, Israel, UAE and most countries in America. If you are unsure whether or not you need to apply for a visa, we recommend contacting the embassy or consulate in your country. International (non-Schengen) travelers need a passport that is valid for at least 3 months after the end of their intended trip in order to enter the Schengen zone. Citizens of Schengen countries can travel without a passport, but must have a valid ID with them during their stay.
