Ultimate Mykonos Travel Guide for First Timers

Ultimate Mykonos Travel Guide for First Timers

Take the time here to discover the serene charm of the Cycladic Labyrinth of Chora, the fun of being behind the scenes, and the places to eat to compete against each other on every Greek island.

Feel the good beach life

Whether you’re looking for small, secluded coves surrounded by cerulus waters or wide expanses of white sand covered with sunscreen, Mykonos has a beach to suit your needs. The island has 25 beaches to be precise, and that is its biggest natural attraction. You can take a tour to visit all the beaches, or you can rent a yacht with yachtrentalmykonos.com and enjoy the beaches and also the luxurious life.

Party goers are in the right place in Paradise or Super Paradise, which is dominated by the club of the same name. Paraga and Psaru are another beach party favorite. Elia is Mykonos’ longest white sand cleaner, popular with families, while Platys Gialos and Kalafatis are perfect for water sports.

On the north coast, Panormos and Agios Sostis receive a small number of visitors to the south coast and have sections suitable for naturists. The boulders of Mirsin and Fokos, reached by steep trails along the northeast coast, offer solitude and refuge from the crowds. To the southwest, Ornos has dozens of beachfront restaurants, while remote Agios Ioannis is a great spot for windsurfing.

You want something far from the beach

In the western part of the island, the small capital city of Chora (also known as Mykonos Town) is Mykonos’s second biggest attraction after the beaches. You can get lost for hours in charming caves on narrow pedestrian streets covered in bougainvillea and lined with impeccable little churches, restaurants and boutiques. The Archaeological Museum is worth the time, as is the informative Aegean Maritime Museum.

Shopping in Mykonos is great fun: to see art, see Mavrogenous Street; Greek designers sculpted matogliani, while Little Venice is great for casual wear, jewelery and sticky souvenirs. Other people’s delight includes the exciting open-air cinema, Cine Manto, and some whimsical art galleries like Rarity Gallery and Art & Soul Gallery.

Bring in the night vibe

Mykonos never sleeps in the peak months of July and August. There are several clubs in Hora (including some gay and gay friendly places) but super beach clubs like Cavo Paradiso, Super Paradise and Paradise Club which attract local and international DJ talent every night. The beach party starts in the afternoon and the action lasts until dawn. Regular ferry buses run on the coast between Chora, Paradise and Super Paradise.
