Mykonos Town



Mykonos Town


Fashionable and arty Mykonos Town, known locally as Chora, is the perfect sun destination. The town has mostly pedestrian, narrow streets with cubic whitewashed houses. It’s essentially a traditional Cycladic village, with bougainvillea’s, small white churches, and colourful windows, doors and balconies. The town features three charming connected squares with traditional tavernas, bars and shops tucked neatly around. The Mykonos windmills are an iconic sight on the island, as is Cynthus mountain, where, in Greek mythology, Apollo was said to be born. One of the most famous and charming areas in Chora is called Alefkantra, or Little Venice, as its picturesque setting next to the sea is reminiscent of the Italian city. The settlement of Little Venice was created during the 18th century by rich merchants and captains. Visitors will be fascinated by the elegant and beautiful houses with the colourful windows, which stand literally above the sea. It’s one of the best locations in the Aegean to enjoy the sunset. The beaches of Mykonos are as beautiful as its interior towns. Korfos is a popular beach for families and individuals interested in water sports and is 3km away from Chora. The location caters to high winds and waves that are perfect for windsurfing but it also offers easy access to other beaches that are not as windy.
