Mykonos Attractions

The Greek island of Mykonos is home to just over 10,000 people, giving it the look and feel of a sleepy little town. Travelers come to the island because it isn't quite as crowded as other Greek cities and because it has a connection to Greek mythology. According to that mythology, Zeus once battled the Titans on this very island. Whether or not you enjoy mythology, you'll find fun-filled things to do in Mykonos.

Panormos Beach is one of the best beaches on Mykonos. The bright blue water and warm sand will make you feel like you're on a tropical getaway, and you'll find local businesses nearby where you can rent boats for Mykonos tours or take a snorkeling or scuba diving trip. This tourist destination is extremely popular. You need to get there early, if you want a good spot. While the Agios Sostis Beach has the same beautiful views as other beaches, you'll find that it's a little less crowded. Not far away from the beach are a handful of small locally owned restaurants and shops where you can take a break from the sun.

People come to Mykonos for more than just the beaches though, and many of those travelers head to Mykonos Town as soon as they arrive. Matoyianni Street is one of the more popular places travelers visit because of the small shops and historic buildings. You'll also find Little Venice, which is neighborhood filled with night clubs and other venues. Little Venice gives residents the chance to cut loose after a hard day or working in the sun, and even if you don't enjoy loud music and crowded clubs, you'll enjoy the other attractions in Mykonos Town.
