Exploring and walking at Mykonos Town, Chora, is one of the ‘’must’’ in Mykonos.
Important information about Chora is that no car can enter Mykonos Town center as it is accessible only to pedestrians, in order to make your stay a memorable one, as it keeps Mykonos Town center as picturesque as ever!
Do not forget to meet Petros, the pelican, who can be found at the narrow alleys of Mykonos Town and of course you can feed him, if you wish.
Mykonos has a great variety of impressive churches, with the most famous Paraportiani church. The Paraportiani church in fact is 5 churches in the same building complex. It is one of the most photographed buildings of Mykonos and combines the blue color of the sea and the sky with its white color, in an amazing way. Its name comes from the fact that it is located near to the North West ‘gate’ of the medieval wall. It’s weird but the beauty of this church has been created not only by people but also by accidental damaged caused by time.
Shopping in Mykonos is also a highlight of the island as there is a huge market with very popular brands. Matoyianni Street is the most famous street in Chora, where the most luxury brands are located. So, don’t miss the chance to have a walk on this street and even though shopping is bit expensive, window shopping is always a good idea.
The little village Ano Mera is worth visit: small, pretty and quiet. Visit the monastery and the little church museum from the 15th century.
We talked about history and sightseeing, but Mykonos is also known for its sandy beaches and beach bars, which are generally very busy and crowded. Platys Gialos and Elia are two of the most popular beaches. Last but not least, though, further to Platys Gialos are more beaches, Paraga, Paradise and Super Paradise where you can reach them by boat from Platys Gialos. Ornos beach, Agios Giannis, Agrari and Agios Stefanos and Kalafatis (basically recommended for wind surfers) along with the above beaches are some of the main reasons that the island has been made the most visited in Greece.
