Mykonos Town Holidays

The upscale heart of Mykonos

The capital of Mykonos, Mykonos Town (or Chora, as it’s known locally) is striking for several reasons – but mostly because it looks every bit as gorgeous in real life as it does on Instagram. On Mykonos Town holidays, explore the narrow, labyrinthine streets and you’ll find tiny churches rubbing shoulders with sophisticated restaurants, lively bars and upmarket boutiques. Everything gleams with that signature whitewashed, blue-painted trim, while pink, fragrant bougainvilleas provide a pretty contrast.

Holidays to Mykonos Town are never dull, with dozens of historical sites, top-notch places to eat and exquisite spots such as Little Venice in which to sit and watch the sunset over a cocktail. Museums, galleries and points of cultural interest abound, and if you want to hit the beach, that’s not far away either. If you’re eager to experience the Greek-island holiday of a lifetime, the capital of Mykonos is a place where you can really go to town.

Your Mykonos Town questions, answered

It’s certainly not essential: walking around the cobbled streets is one of the pleasures of Mykonos Town, and the island-wide bus system is clean and pretty efficient, too.
The closest sandy beach is Megali Ammos, about a 10-minute stroll from the bus station. Due to its proximity to town, it’s also a popular spot with cruise visitors.
At the western end of town, Little Venice is where the cute, sugar cube-like buildings sit low on the water – it’s beyond pretty, especially at sunset.
