Adventures in Mykonos: Guide
I wanted to create a guide of some of our favourite spots in Mykonos since we really enjoyed this part of Greece! Mykonos Town was lively, fun, energetic and has an amazing nightlife. All the shops are open late and the town is always buzzing.
From Santorini, we ventured by high-speed Ferry (Golden Star Ferries) to Mykonos to spend 4 days exploring a new island of Greece.
Mykonos is definitely as windy as people say it is, but we had 4 days of pure greek sunshine so we really can't complain! We visited at the end of May, with temperatures in the mid-20's during the day and dipping just below 20 in the evenings.
I booked us in to the Ibiscus Boutique Hotel right in Mykonos town for our 4 nights on the island. Our room was MUCH bigger than expected and our balcony had a private hot tub. From our balcony, we could see down the hill which overlooked Mykonos town. The Hotel had a boutique feel and the staff were extremely helpful & friendly.
Breakfast was included in our stay and they prepared a beautiful buffet spread each morning in the dining room. Every corner of this Hotel was photo worthy and we were really happy with our choice of stay!
Have drinks at the 180 Sunset Bar:
This was one of our favourite spots in Mykonos - hands down. We went two nights in a row since it was such an unbelievable view. The 180 Sunset Bar opens at 6pm daily, and fills up QUICK. It's a busy spot but for a good reason! The sunset overlooking Mykonos town is absolutely spectacular. The drinks were expensive but delicious and they did have some light snacks on their menu. They also have tons of seating throughout from couches to floor pillows!
Eat at Pepper:
Pepper was recommended to us by a friend and it was absolutely delicious Greek souvlaki. We scored a cute courtyard spot, right in the heart of Mykonos town.
Eat & Chill at The Belvedere Hotel:
On one our last days in Mykonos, we spent an entire day poolside at the Belvedere Hotel. It's a luxurious hotel and somehow we were able to snag a cabana to ourselves as long as we planned to eat & drink there for the day - done deal!
Walk the Shops in Mykonos Town:
The shops are open until midnight and there are so many souvenir shops among high end shops throughout town. We loved wandering through the narrow streets of blue & white!
Walk to the Windmills:
Across from Little Venice are the famous windmills of Mykonos. A busy spot especially at sunset, but a picturesque spot!
Eat at D'Angelo's:
Just a few steps away from the windmills was D'Angelo's - an italian-mediterranean spot with fresh pasta and of course limoncello shots to cleanse your palette at the end of your meal!
Sunbathe at Psauro Beach (Cavo Psauro):
We absolutely LOVED Psauro Beach. It wasn't a super huge beach, but the water was so clear & blue! To get onto the beach, you have to access through Nammos (party spot, 120 euro for 2 sun chairs) so we opted to keep walking further down the beach to a quieter area and rented our sun chairs for 20 euro's. This included chair-side service to the Cavo Psauro Cafe and they delivered drinks & food right to you.
Visit Little Venice:
This small strip of restaurants & shops along the Aegean sea make up Little Venice. You can see this spot from the windmills and walk along the pathway.
Eat at Veranda:
In the heart of Little Venice along the sea is this little gem, Veranda. We stopped here for lunch and I loved the avo, spinach & goat cheese sandwich. The views are unbelievable and so many of their tables are right along the water!
Thanks for reading along our Greece travels! xx
