4+1 things to do in Mykonos
Everything shows that 2021 will be another year full of challenges. Although the pandemic has not yet disappeared, at least the vaccinations that are going on around the world fill us with hope for a safer summer!
No matter what comes along the way, what is absolutely sure is that every summer Mykonos is ready to welcome visitors from all over the world. If you are one of them, here are some things you should make sure to do:
1. Explore the beautiful neighborhood of Little Venice
“Little Venice” is truly a unique location, as the colorful balconies hanging above the waves offer a great opportunity for wonderful, creative photos. Here you can sip your cocktail while enjoying the sunset and create memorable moments with your significant other!
2. Walk through the alleys of Chora (Mykonos Town)
Walking through the innumerable Cycladic-style alleys in Mykonos is an experience like no other. Start strolling around in the morning to take advantage of the natural light and get killer Instagram photos of the traditional houses painted in white and blue and the bougainvilleas that embrace their balconies. Don’t forget to do some quality shopping at the boutiques located mainly on the main street (Matogianni or Matoyianni).
3. Visit the Windmills
While on the island, don’t forget to take a closer look at its most famous landmark: the Windmills! Seen clearly from Little Venice, the Windmills add to the Mykonian landscape with their own special beauty, as they are kept in a very good condition — although they are no longer used for grinding, as they once used to.
4. Visit the island of Delos
Mykonos’ neighboring island offers a fascinating glimpse into the past. According to legend, the god Apollo and the goddess Artemis were born here. This is why this island was sacred; no mortal was allowed to be born in Delos. Today, it’s one of the most important mythological, historical, and archaeological sites in Greece; a UNESCO World Heritage Site that will fill you with awe!
5. Enjoy life in every moment
Mykonos is the perfect place to wake up your taste buds and try new flavors, refresh your palate with refreshing cocktails, and enjoy sunbathing or swimming in the crystal clear sea. If you are looking for a place that combines all the essential components of an unforgettable summer vacation —an amazing beach, mouthwatering food and fantastic cocktails— all you have to do is visit Solymar at Kalo Livadi beach!
