Catch the sunset from Gizi

Category: Mykonos Ano Mera


Ano Mera is the second largest village of Mykonos. Nothing to compare with the beauty of Chora, just a small village with white houses and a large square with traditional coffee houses. No great crowds, few rooms to rent and even fewer gift shops. Most hotels are located around Ano Mera. A nice trekking path is from Ano Mera to the Castle of Gizi, on a hill above the village. Go in the evening to catch the sunset. In the day, trekking will be very tiring. This part of Mykonos is really relaxing, not that crowded as the western spots and far from the big crowds.

Category: Mykonos Sightseeing > Little Venice


The beautiful and tranquil island of Mykonos is full of surprises and scenic beauty. I fell in love with the natural beauty and the serenity of the atmosphere. One of the most elegant and eclectic neighborhoods in Mykonos is called Little Venice. The beauty of the water, the sturdy and wonderful houses surrounding the water makes this quarter a mini Venice.

This idyllic and romantic place is actually called Little Venice and it got us in a wonderful mood: vibrant colors, charming ambience, white buildings and colorful windows. Some old houses have been turned into cafeterias with tables at the waterfront. A perfect place to relax with a frappe and a view to the sea. I think it would be nice if some of these old buildings were turned into hotels.

Category: Mykonos Other > Peter the Pelican


Before even going to Mykonos, we heard of course about Peter the Pelican by friends who had goen there and by the travel guides that presented the bird as one of the top things to see in Mykonos. We were so intrigued by the story that a pelican became the Mascot of Mykonos in a very short duration according to a tale which says that old fisherman of Mykonos nursed a pelican when he was ill. After gaining strength, he made Mykonos his home. People at Mykonos loved him so much and they brought in successors of Peter to Mykonos after the original one died. Certainly we too wanted to see what creature has stolen the heart of everyone at Mykonos. We saw three pelicans at the waterfront and Peter was walking gladly with his new girlfriend. We waited for Peter to stop walking and pose for pictures. The creature is so cuddly and lovely. We had such a great time at the waterfront caching after him!

Best spot to unwind

Category: Mykonos Sightseeing > Windmills


I mostly enjoyed the balmy weather, the exotic Greek food and the flawless beaches of Mykonos. I completely forgot the hurry and flurry of the demanding and hectic lifestyle and enjoyed my vacation at this serene and beautiful Greek island. I felt I was re-connecting with nature in an explicit way.

The spectacular windmills, the hallmark of Mykonos, was the best spot to relax and enjoy the view. They are located in a walking distance from Chora, on top of a hill. The dynamism of the windmills made me look at it from the viewpoint of an artist. The quintessential features of these traditional structures made me forget the traffic jam, honking cars and the hectic lifestyle of the modern city. Even if you are at a distance, you can view the majestic windmill and its revolving beauty that exudes elegance. The best spot to unwind, although ironically enough the wind blows a bit strong there!!

Sadly only for a day

I stayed for only a day in Mykonos cause I was on a cruise. So I can't tell a lot about the island, only about Chora, the capital. It will not take more than 20 minutes to go from one side of Chora to the other: a tiny little adorable place with white houses, paved streets (no cars allowed, except for motorcycles that were really annoying sometimes with their awful noise), blue window shutters and the most delicious food of all the cruise!

We didn't order something special, just the typical Greek souvlaki, but still it was the best gyros souvlaki we have tasted in Greece. It was in a venue in Little Venice, with colourful tables by the sea (don't remember the name!!). I liked the busy atmosphere of Chora, the colourful gift shops, the nice waterfront, the view from the windmills... If we had a little more time, we would take a taxi to a beach, but as we were supposed to return to the ship in five hours, we just took a quick dip in a small beach in Chora and then walked around.

We spent just one evening in Mykonos as we stopped with a cruise ship there, so we had not much time to see all the island and preferred to stay in the Town. The place was picturesque, with labyrinth streets and small cubic houses. The architecture was beautiful, but there were no flowers and no parks. It was also very clean, situated in a valley by the sea, with local artisan activity. It is actully a fishing port with just a few churches and much touristy industry. There were a lot of restaurants, cafes, clubs, all proximate to the port, and very crowded and expensive. That is the bad thing of the town near the port, not enough lights and not enough people. My favorite thing about the village was the labyrinth streets. I also hated the fact that there were so many transexuals on Mykonosand that they hit on my father (age 50)! We were walking side by side, father and daughter, and there were people hitting him in a very bad and rude way! This should stop, because there may be families with children on vacations and these sites to see are not for children eyes!

Chora is a strange town. Labyrinth streets, nice churches, busy and yet quite dirty and expensive. You do not need a car to get around the town, just a scooter, if you are not afraid of sun burning and bad roads. My accommodation was located close to Chora and that was convenient because I could find anything I wanted: banks, restaurants, travel agencies, post office. The pelican was my favourite clue of Chora Mykonos and the waterfront was the ideal place to drink your coffee.

Hi, my name is Karin Heyboer and I'm South African. I'm 25 years old. I visited Greece and the island of Mykonos.
I was staying in Agios Ioannis, which I reached by boat. The trip lasted for about 1 minute. Also the roads to the village were good. Only some sharp turns but good quality roads.
The bus also was good because it comes on time.
The trip to the Main Town by ferry was a bit long (5hrs) but not terrible. In order to get there I had to ask someone on our way. A friend of the family stays in the area and that’s the main reason we decided to go.
This place is picturesque and has small cubic houses. There are no flowers, no parks by the sea, but there are offering views and very nice and friendly local people. Also it has nice restaurants, proximate to the beach. It is a very relaxing and quiet place. Just a lot of electricity and water cutting out occasionally on Mykonos.
In the village someone could find telephone, mini market and shops. It certainly met my expectations as it’s a very peaceful place.
I would definitely come to this village again and the best would be to come and live here forever!
I cant’ recommend other villages as I haven’t done a lot of exploring. But I’m sure it’s all great.

We stayed at the Hotel Eva which is a little outside of Mykonos.
The hotel and family who run it are WONDERFUL.
It was easy to get to Mykonos and spend the day.
You must go to Delos and take the full tour.
The whole Greek experience was wonderful!
