According to legend, Mykonos was created in the Gigantomachy, the great war between Zeus and the giants of Greek mythology. When the giants were defeated, they were thrown into the sea where they turned to stone, forming the Cyclades Islands, including Mykonos. This mythological connection is apparent in Mykonos. You can pay a visit to Delos, a nearby small island that was the birthplace of Apollo and Artemis, and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where you can see the remains of ancient temples. On Mykonos itself, there are plenty of things to keep everyone entertained, from nightclubs and shopping in Mykonos Town, catching some rays on one of the island’s many beautiful beaches, and, of course, a photo stop at the iconic Kato Mili, the line of windmills looking out over the sea.
Whether you’re craving delicious traditional Greek food, or something international, you’ll find it in Mykonos. One of the most popular spots on the island is Efisia Fine Greek Dining, which serves up delectable dishes inspired by authentic local flavors, such as saganaki, monkfish, and Myconian lamb. For something a little less formal, but no less delicious, head to Rhino Vegan Street Food, which specializes in traditional gyros, which are a must-try when in Greece. To taste food from every corner of Greece, head to Compass Mykonos, where you can find classics such as moussaka, octopus, and Greek salad, as well as international favorites such as burgers and carbonara. Alternatively, you can go completely international and enjoy a tasty curry at the top-rated Indian Palace.
Mykonos' labyrinthine old town is the quintessential image of a Greek Island getaway. Clean white buildings adorned with sky-blue painted windows and doors, cobbled pathways snaking down narrow streets, and boutiques and tavernas leading you on a scavenger hunt to the glittering sea, Chora is the beating heart of the island.
Arguably the most famous symbol of the island, the majestic Mykonos windmills stand sentinel over the old town and the Aegean Sea. Particularly popular at sunset, the windmills make for an incredible photo opportunity. To avoid the biggest crowds, our top tip is to brave an early start and get to the windmills for sunrise.
A short boat ride away from Mykonos is the island of Delos. The island is an archaeological marvel, the birthplace, according to Greek mythology, of Artemis and Apollo. Today Delos is a maze of ancient columns, ruined temples, statues, and sculptures, a living history book telling the story of a time long since passed.
Mykonos is famed for its vibrant and eclectic nightlife, and certain parts of the island pulsate to heady club beats each and every night during the summer months. Partying from dusk until dawn is certainly on the itinerary for those that want to, while those who prefer a quite evening out can enjoy numerous taverns, bars, and restaurants.
Mykonos is a fabulous beach destination, with long stretches of white sand that are gently warmed by the sun. Beaches in Mykonos range from glamorous and popular to quiet, wild, and secluded, so there really is something for everyone. Mykonos' most popular beaches fill up quite quickly, so get there nice and early to snag a sunbed.
Away from the hustle and bustle of Mykonos town, the island has got many beautiful and charming small villages to explore and revel in the slow pace of life that permeates the Greek Islands. A great way to get around Mykonos and see the villages is to hire and car or an ATV and enjoy the freedom to stop wherever you please.
