This place could easily be mistaken for Santorini with its white washed buildings looking out over the sea and blue domed churches. Mykonos Town is just as beautiful as the villages on its sister island with an added touch of beach life and history thrown in for good measure. Spend your days navigating the winding paths or while away the hours soaking up the Greek sunshine down by the sea.
There’s an area in Mykonos Town called Little Venice and it’s in this part where you’ll find a lot of the cool and quirky restaurants and bars which make for a great night out next to the ocean. By the water, fresh seafood dishes are inspired by Greek and Italian cuisines and for dessert, bakeries make almond based cakes and pastries that melt in the mouth! You’ll be spoilt for choice dining out in Mykonos Town!
Like many other Greek towns and villages, Mykonos Town is great for picking up local handmade crafts that you just won’t find back at home. The rich flash their cash down by the harbour but it’s Matoyanni Street where you’ll find the real hidden gems to take home. Handcrafted leather bags, belts and jackets are all for sale here and glitzy, unique jewellery shimmers as you walk down this intriguing street.
Apart from shopping and enjoying the classy cocktail bars, Mykonos Town is home to the Archaeological and Folklore Museum each opening a small window into this island’s history and culture. If you want to enjoy this islands beach life, spend time at the small beach by the harbour or hop on a water taxi to Psarou Beach where you’ll find a selection of water sports, soft white sand and tempting beach bars.
