Seven Special Places to See in Mykonos

With sugar cube houses stacked along the coastline and the beautiful blue sea below, it's easy to see why Mykonos is one of the most photographed destinations in Greece. Known for sun holidays and excellent nightlife, there's still plenty of sightseeing in this stunning location.

There are plenty of cafes and restaurants here, so grab a table towards the end of the day to enjoy an amazing sunset. Look out for the Mykonos pelicans - an added attraction!

Our insider tips

Gay travellers to Mykonos

Mykonos, Greece, has been popular with the LGBT community of the world for generations. The town offers gay bars, hotels and even gay beaches. Follow the rainbow flag to the right side of Elia beach, or visit Agrari beach, which is 'clothing optional'.

Island hopping

The beauty of visiting the Greek islands is the ease at which you can jump between them, taking in the different sights. Catch a ferry from Mykonos to Naxos, Paros, Ios or Santorini to change up your holiday. Many of these destinations can also be reached with a day trip.

Club classics

Mykonos is a quiet town, but there's plenty to do at night. Local laws on noise pollution are strict, which means you can't follow the music to find a great spot -- you need to know where you're going. Scandinavian Disco is a popular club and meeting point, but be aware, Europeans start to party late, so many won't get busy until after midnight.

What people are saying about Mykonos

This was a *really* fun evening. Teta was wonderful, and her assistant Christina was great too! We didn't know what to expect when we arrived, but we were warmly welcomed into Teta's home and she took some time to get to know us. We then had a lot of fun learning how to make several Greek dishes (including, very importantly, how to hand measure the salt and pepper when cooking... DO NOT forget this). The food was terrific, the wine was plentiful, and the company of our hosts and teacher was truly warm and hospitable. This was very memorable, and we plan to share what we learned when we are at home with our friends... the results anyway, not the secrets behind them. We highly recommend this.

Mykonos Cooking Class Reviewed by Mark, 07/10/2020

The trip was absolutely brilliant, George and the crew were amazing, so kind and helpful. The meal they made was out of this world! And if you had a meal like that in a restaurant in mykonos it would easily cost over €60 or €70. By far the best day of our holiday. 10 out of 10 without a doubt! Thank you guys.

Tour and guide were excellent. Athena was very knowledgeable, having work at and on the site for years. Pacing was smooth with lots of time to linger and appreciate details. Highly recommend the tour. Great value!

The Original Morning Delos Guided Tour Reviewed by Brad, 22/09/2020

This tour was absolutely amazing! The crew was super friendly and accommodating! We got loads of wine and delicious snacks! One of the best evenings we've had in Mykonos. I can highly recommend this tour!

Mykonos: Sunset Cruise to the Little Venice Reviewed by Markus, 21/10/2020

It was a pretty sail. Hot spots of the island where shown. Snorkeling is fun but not much to see, better just to swim and enjoy the view. Sail crew was very friendly.
