They say that “if you go Mykonos, you never turn back,” and this charismatic Queen of the Aegean islands has ways to ensure this happens. And for its millions of fans, it is true that it takes only a five minute walk at Matoyanni and through the nearby alleys, to experience the hypnotic, almost palpable magnetism of the island. For most first-time visitors, this experience can be a bit overwhelming.
From then on, it’s just a typical Mykonos love story, a perfect bonding between land and spirit.
On top of the emotional factor that will connect you with Mykonos, it’s the lifestyle that makes the island’s romanticism vibrate with intensity. Bars, clubs, restaurants, tavernas, beaches, villages, the sea – they’re all alive round the clock with an amazing energy that takes hold of you and never lets go. Strangely enough, if you prefer the quiet life, it’s also here in generous doses.
A paradise for socialites and recluses alike, with its famous nude beach, Super Paradise, competing for popularity with Psarrou, Panormos or even some uncharted cove; your own private beach.
Delos – Renia

Mykonos Must See
- The ancient ruins of Delos: the notorious Terrace of the Lions, the temple of Apollo, the Sacred Lake, the Minoan Fountain and more.
- The archaeological museum of Mykonos by the harbor and Little Venice, serving the most gorgeous sunsets on Mykonos, a locale seemingly detached from the rest of the island, with its almost Venetian look, a subtle yet fully compatible contrast.
Mykonos Must Taste
- Whether you choose Sea Satin over Nammos, or Kuzina over Nobu, it makes sense to be prepared, not for lunch or dinner, but for a feast. The whole range of sinful pleasures is served by the seaside, where great chefs perform great feats on a daily basis.
- For a snack, “MyOdyssey” suggests fresh fish, lobster, or even calamari from the grill, served with a glass of ouzo on the deck of a private yacht.
- Barhopping combined with serious scientific research, as to which is the most tantalizing, exotic cocktail served in this domain.
Mykonos Must Do
A heli tour, flying low over Mykonos and the surrounding islands. A more conventional horse ride toward Fokos and Myrsini. Or go off-roading in one of the luxury Humvee or Mercedes SUV’s available for hire on Mykonos. Or rent a boat and go for a picnic on a nearby, uninhabited island. Finally, shopping is irresistible here, especially with so many superb shops squeezed into such a tight space.
