If you are looking to enjoy something other than the town’s crazy nightlife, here are ideas on some of the amazing places you can go to.
Paradise and Ftelia Beaches
Every person who tours Greece looks forwards to taking pleasure in its stunning beaches where some sun, sand, and beach parties are always guaranteed. Paradise beach is just one spot that can provide you with all these as it has a diving centre which doubles up as a clubbing venue at night. If you prefer a shoreline with fewer party goers and less thumping music however, you might want to head to Ftelia beach which is nice and clean, and less frequented by tourists.
This scenic section of Mykonos is named so because it houses medieval structures that totter right at the edge of the water. Several serene cafés and boutiques are to be found in Little Venice, and these provide great relaxation spots for tourists who simply want some peace and quiet during their holiday.
When travelling, most people love to carry back home something that can remind them of the beautiful times they had while on holiday. Luckily, there are more than enough places from which you can shop for knickknacks in Mykonos. Apart from the charming views you will take in while strolling along Matoyianni Street, you can shop around for souvenirs and jewellry among other items while here. Basically, the street has everything on offer; so what you may or may not get purely depends on how much money you have in the pocket.
History buffs can just never have enough when it comes to antiques and if you’re one, you wouldn’t want to miss out on seeing the great pieces of art that Mykonos museums have in store. Consider stopping by the Aegean Maritime museum and you will get mesmerised by the private collection of old ship models and other maritime antiques.
