How to Spend a Day in Mykonos
One of the most photographed places in the world, you’ve probably seen hundreds of pictures of Mykonos and, like thousands of others, dreamt of visiting one day. Well, as part of your MedSailors sailing holiday, that one day has finally arrived! Every part of Mykonos really does look like something straight from a dream and here are just some of things you can do with one day in this picturesque destination.
Explore Mykonos Town
Made up of narrow, twisty alleyways and packed with boutiques, beautiful art galleries and souvenir shops, Mykonos Town is well worth a visit. Allow yourself to get lost amongst the streets and take as many pictures as possible, but as there’s so much more to see, don’t spend your whole day here.
Rent a Scooter…
And explore! You’ll discover out-of-the-way unspoilt beaches and see beautiful rolling hills and fields full of stunning wildflowers. We recommend heading towards Super Paradise beach for super soft sand and crystal clear turquoise waters.
Visit Peaceful Panagia Paraportiani
Mykonos’ most famous church, this architectural treasure dates back to the early 1400s and still holds regular services to this day. The atmosphere in this perfect example of Byzantine architecture is both evocative and calming, and you certainly won’t forget it in a hurry.
See the Sun Set from Little Venice
Seeing the sun set over the Aegean Sea from this spot is absolutely incredible. So incredible that you might never see a sunset quite as beautiful anywhere else. You’ll also find some ridiculously tasty street food here, so if you’re feeling peckish you’ll be in luck!
Take in the View from the Windmills
Little Venice is also home to Mykonos’ famous windmills, which have been looking over Mykonos since the 16th century and were once used to mill wheat. Follow the path up to the windmills for some more picture-perfect views of this beautiful Aegean destination. Seriously, your Instagram feed will never have looked so pretty!
