Where to stay in Mykonos for the 1st time: Mykonos Town

mykonos-town-ou-loger-

If you’re dreaming of a wonderful stay in Mykonos, we recommend you find accommodation in the Alefkandra district, known as ‘Little Venice’.

Nestling by the sea, this emblematic locality stands out for the beauty of its scenery, which explains why it is the most photographed place on the whole island.

And it’s not without reason, because everything here is seductive, from the sight of the windmills, which have stood since the 15th century and still face the sea with all their grandeur, to the colourful houses of unrivalled beauty, with their wooden balconies and foundations firmly anchored in the water.

These houses, different from those usually found in the Cyclades, have an undeniable authentic charm and, as daylight fades, their image will especially charm those in search of romance.

But that’s not all. It’s also a very lively area, with an armada of hotels, restaurants and cafés where you can have a wonderful time.

This historic district has no shortage of tourist attractions, including the Paraportiani church, with its breathtaking views over the Aegean Sea.

Mykonos Town is a destination we recommend for families, or for couples looking for romantic and intimate moments.

The port of Chora, for fans of culture

dormir-port-chora-mykonos

Nestling to the north of the historic centre, this tiny fishing port has it all. And its charm is due to its still traditional appearance, its small craft shops and the elegance of its little bistros where you can sip a drink or enjoy an ice cream.

Culture buffs will love the Archaeological Museum and its pride and joy: the Pithos of Mykonos, a magnificent amphora on which the Trojan War is told. Other must-sees include the Aegean Maritime Museum and the Folklore Museum, with its rich collection of traditional clothing.

You can also take advantage of your stay in the port of Chora to laze around on the small Ag Anna beach.

But as the port of Chora is a very popular destination, we recommend that you book a little early, as during the tourist season, accommodation establishments are taken by storm, and by doing so you will also benefit from a fairly attractive price.

Paradise Beach: where to go out in Mykonos

ou-loger-mykonos-plage

If you’re looking for a quiet place to relax on Mykonos, Super Paradise Beach or Paradise Beach are certainly not the right places for you.

Located just a few kilometres from Chora, they are ideal and eclectic destinations for those looking for a Mykonos party spot!

As a result, you’ll discover a plethora of discos and nightclubs. Music, dancing, cocktails and impromptu galas are what await you here for an exceptional stay.

In fact, this magnificent emblematic bay offers you crystal-clear beaches during the day, and an exciting nightlife after dark.

A number of world-renowned DJs perform in the local nightclubs, particularly in high season.

On both beaches, you’ll find places where you can indulge in water sports such as snorkelling and diving, among others. In high season, Paradise Beach and Super Paradise Beach are very busy and it’s not easy to find a place to spread out your towel.

During the summer season, prices rise quickly, but if you want to keep accommodation costs down, we advise you to book in advance. Alternatively, you can stay in a nearby location to avoid overcrowding and save money on accommodation.

Ano-Mera-dormir-mykonos

If you want to spend the night on Mykonos in an idyllic setting that’s as quiet and relaxing as it is beautiful, then Ano Mera is the perfect choice, as it is the only town on the island’s interior.

Away from the hustle and bustle of the island’s most emblematic regions, which are frequently swamped by incessant streams of visitors in the summer months, Ano Mera is well protected, so you can discover the architecture and culture of the region in a serene atmosphere.

We particularly recommend visiting the wonders of the Monastery of Our Lady Tourliani. Built in 1542, this place of worship is best known for its icons and its museum.

The windmills in the upper part of the village are another must-see tourist attraction. Although in ruins, they are well worth a visit!

Ano Mera is also home to a museum devoted entirely to a 15th-century church, a must-see for history and architecture buffs.

Situated between Elia and Kalafatis, at the other end of the capital, Kalo Livadi is a sandy beach that stretches as far as the eye can see. Here, you won’t be able to resist the charms of this magical setting, straight out of a postcard, where everything seems to be in perfect harmony.

At Kalo Livadi, you can sunbathe on this magnificent beach with its snowy sand, or try your hand at a variety of water sports, or take a boat trip and discover other wonders.
