Mykonos is famous for its pristine beaches, great nightlife and is among the most popular Greek islands.  Mykonos isn’t just for the party goers however; it’s an island that offers gourmet food, cultural activities, and romantic holidays.  It’s a great destination for solo travelers, couples, and families with so many things to do.

Wondering what to do in Mykonos? Here’s a few ideas to get you started.

Discover the Windmills in Chora

The windmills are among the most recognized landmarks of the island and one of the most famous Mykonos attractions along with Little Venice. For many centuries the mills used to refine grain with the help of the high winds that blow on the island. With the progress of technology, the use of the mills declined, and now the ones that survived are used as private homes or museums. 

The most famous ones are the Kato Myloi ( Lower Windmills) that stand on a hill facing the sea. Only seven of them have been preserved.  I highly recommend that you walk up the hill in Chora and visit the windmill of Boni that is now a museum. The view from up there is incredible, and it’s also one of the best places to watch the sunset.

Stroll around Mykonos town

Lose yourself in the winding alleys of Mykonos town with the white houses, blue doors and windows and colourful bougainvilleas is a must do in Mykonos. Head to the area of Matogiania with the chic shops and trendy bars. The place to be in the centre of the town. You can spend a lot of time exploring Mykonos town, from all the little boutique shops, to  the incredible restaurants- make sure to give yourself some extra time to explore the area.


Take a boat trip to the archaeological site of Delos

The island od Delos is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is considered one of the most important Archaeological Sites in Greece. According to Mythology, it was the birthplace of Apollo and Artemis.

The island is now uninhabited, but you can visit it by taking one of the many ships that depart daily from Mykonos old harbour (except Mondays that theArchaeological site is closed). The return ticket to Delos cost 20 € for adults and 10 € for children (6-12 years old). Tickets to the Archaeological site of Delos cost: Full 12€, Reduced 6€.

I highly recommend that you do a guided tour in Delos. A visit to the island of Delos is among the best things to do in Mykonos.
