10 Best Places you must  visit or Things to do  in Mykonos:-

1.)  Little Venice –  Buildings are built right on the the edge of sea with the waves of sea kissing the balconies.  This island was once a Pirate island in 16th or 17th century.  So this place was used for quick loading and unloading of goods. Now these buildings are turned into antique bars, cafes and restaurants. Lunch here is preferred for pretty views and to enjoy sound of waves and winds.

2.)  Matoyianni Street (Mykonos street)  – Matoyianni street in old town is a maze of narrow streets. The network of the streets were laid  to confuse enemies coming from the sea. Very interesting to walk on the streets as you may find some dead-end. The town is filled with unique shops which are any shopper’s delight. The small shops sell a variety of products from cheap souvenirs to artwork, jewelry and branded fashion items. The white-washed houses have terraces and brightly colored doors and windows. You will see Bougainville trees in bloom as you walk the cobble-stoned streets. Also there are many boutique hotels in the area. Enjoy the walk and get lost to find something unique.

  1. Wow, seven beaches in all! That must have been a lot of sun for you. And I didn’t know there ws a Little Venice in Mykonos!

  2. We haven’t been to Mykonos yet but it looks so beautiful. I just love that white and blue. Just looking at your photos relaxes me!

  3. First of all, beautiful photographs. They really make Mykanos look like heaven on earth. Great tips too with all the places to see and appreciate in this amazing Greek island that is on everyone’s travel list these days. While I haven’t been here, I have traveled in Greece and love the people and the culture that is such an integral part of island life there.

  4. Greece has always been in my bucket list and just God knows when I’ll be able to make it. The beaches look amazing and so peaceful!

  5. So many beaches to choose from. Oh how I love the beach. But once there, the sand always bugs me. But I love a good walk on the beach, wading in the water a little. I also love sunsets. That is spectacular. I love this post and the beautiful pictures included. I had never heard of this place. Thank you for opening my eyes to a new location.

  6. Mykonos is one of those islands I’ve heard so many great things about 🙂 I wish I was there now, instead of dreary London – it’s August 9th and it feels like winter is already here! x

  7. I absolutely love Greece but I have never been to Mykonos, it sounds like an amazing place to visit though and so much to do! Exploring the island on a scooter sounds like so much fun!

  8. Our next door neighbors are the most wonderful people ever, and the husband suffers from multiple sclerosis. One of the hardest things is that he gets terribly depressed on days that are cloudy and gloomy. So, as they’ve been considering places to live now that they’re retired, the number of sunny days in a town matters (a lot!) I kid you not, name a major city in the U.S. and she can tell you how may days of sun it averages per year. While I’d be sad to lose them to Mykonos, the good news is we’d have an excuse to visit Greece a whole lot more! x

  9. I love Mykonos! It’s so beautiful, the combination of blue and white just makes it so Greek! Greece number 1 country for summer vacations but for history as well. I think I would love to have a view of the sea from one of those buildings at the Venice beach.
