What To Do and See In Mykonos Town Greece

Let’s talk about the last leg of the Honeymoon now, Mykonos Town Greece. I have had a lot of people ask if it is worth it to go and my answer is, it depends on what you are looking for in your vacation. Santorini as fully discussed in this post, is calm and peaceful. Mykonos is bustling and when you sit down to any restaurant, they hand you the wifi code. So if you want to be disconnected and just be……stay in Santorini. If you need a little more excitement, then head over to Mykonos.  All pictures in this post were captured by yours truly.

How to get to Mykonos

It all depends on where you are starting from. We were already in Santorini so we took an actual high speed ferry….like it actually was fast for this one and we were there in 2 hours. You can also fly between the islands. Once again when we landed in the port, we had prearranged for our hotel to pick us up. I highly recommend that and read about it here why I do.

Where to Stay

I recommend staying close to Mykonos town.  Our hotel was less than a mile away from the port and the town.  Our hotel Cavo Tagoo was absolutely stunning. It was actually one of the main reasons why we loved Mykonos. It was over the top luxurious.

The hotel had a Lexus SUV car service that would pick you up and drop you off at Mykonos town.  You could walk it but the roads are pretty windy there.  The breakfast every morning looked like a wedding spread.

Then let’s talk about this pool view.

What To Do

Go to the beaches

We ended up meeting the sweetest couple that we hung out with the majority of time in Mykonos. They rented a car and we buzzed around the island with them.  I think for the day it is totally worth to rent one. That way you can see all the beaches that the island has to offer.

Panarmos

Secluded paradise.  Swim in the Aegan sea.

This is supposed to be the party beach.  Perhaps it was a little more tame because we went in May but I’ve seen crazier beach parties.  You can rent a lounge chair for 4 euros which is worth it to be able to hang out for a few hours.  Just a warning…..it is a nude beach if you care to partake.  We clearly didn’t but there were a few views that I wish I could erase from my memory….

Psarous Beach.

The south side of the island.  This is where the famous restaurant Nammos is.  The beach itself is not that big but the views onto the water and the yachts was pretty incredible.

Catch a Sunset by the Windmills

They really are beautiful and a sight to see.

It really is as beautiful as the pictures.

The white walls and blue awnings never get old.

Where to Eat

The Old City is definitely a port city.  There are tons of people and shopping.  It feels like a cruise ship port if that makes sense.  Lots of places to eat, grab a drink and they have quite the nightlife.  Mykonos is a large hub for the Gay community so there is a lot of pride flags and techno bumping through the streets at night.  Definitely lively.

My Two Favorite Restaurants

For quick, delicious and affordable was Pepper. I got the cheese stuffed burgers.  So good.

For a romantic dinner go to Avra.  This is still one of my favorite meals of the trip plus the outside garden view is so quaint.

Overall take away points.  If you have the time, Mykonos Town is worth checking out.  If you need the hustle and bustle for vacations, then there is plenty to do.  We wished we did one less night in Mykonos and one more day in Santorini.  However, we are happy we did both.  It you are strapped for time, then just stay and soak up everything in Santorini.

    This is amazing, lady! Thanks for breaking it down so well. I have had Greece on my list forever and this is helping feed the habit. Question, how was the dollar breakdown there? Were things more expensive or mega cheap?

    i sat here and stared at your pics for a good 5 minutes, they’re so beautiful! when kayla gets older, i’m definitely going to be taking a family trip there :)

  8. June 24, 2015 / 8:32 AM

    I want to go there so bad! Its on our list of places to travel too, but my husband always says Greece is so unsafe because of the money issues the county is having. Did you feel safe?

  9. June 24, 2015 / 9:06 AM

    Seriously breathtaking!!! This had to be the trip of a lifetime! I need to start saving, ha!

  10. June 24, 2015 / 9:20 AM

    That resort looks amazing!! What a fun trip. I love that you took so many photos. That’s the best way to relive a great trip, I think. :)

    Also, thanks a lot for making me hungry this early. That food looks absolutely mouth watering!

  11. June 24, 2015 / 9:29 AM

    I have really had no desire to go to Greece but now I really want to go. I’m not much of a beach person as I can only lie out for 3 hours at a time. Otherwise, I usually get sun poison. Beautiful pictures. That resort is so amazing.

  12. June 24, 2015 / 9:32 AM

    There you go rocking that bright pink color again! Greece looks simply wonderful. I still can’t get over all the crisp white buildings. And that last dish you posted with the pasta? Yeah, I’d like that for breakfast right now, please.

  13. June 24, 2015 / 10:39 AM

    Gorgeous photos! I’ve only ever been to Corfu, but am dying to go other parts of Greece. Looks idyllic – especially all the different shades of blue!

  14. June 24, 2015 / 11:02 AM

    Beautiful pictures! I am drooling over that hotel. Gorgeous. I remember seeing some scary sights in Skopelos at the beach :)
    Have a good day!

    I love how you spaced this out! it was so fun to see all of your recs- i’ve never been to mykonos (we went to santorini and crete) but it looks incredible!!

  16. June 24, 2015 / 2:17 PM

    Good to know the difference between Mykonos and Santorini…I think I’d prefer Santorini but might as well see Mykonos while there. I have you to say you chose the most gorgeous hotel to stay at. I love that you had your own private area to lay out. These pictures are just breathtaking!

  17. June 24, 2015 / 2:29 PM

    Okay, you have me wanting to skip booking our summer vacation and just switch it right to Greece! I love the simple white of a lot of the buildings contrasting with that beautiful water! And that pool, amazing!!

  18. June 24, 2015 / 2:30 PM

    I swear you are the most adorable honeymooner ever! You look like Hollywood royalty on vacation. This is truly such a great recap. My husband and I will one day be going there so I am saving this post!!! You’re better than Trip Advisor! Lol

    Your pictures are stunning! The beaches look beautiful and so idyllic! I’m not so sure about the nude one, though, lol! :D

  23. June 24, 2015 / 4:44 PM

    Oh man, that hotel looks amazing! And those views. Greece is just full of white buildings, isn’t it? I absolutely love see them all and wish there was something like that here. And the food…..those dishes look incredibly delicious!

  24. June 24, 2015 / 5:09 PM

    Those views!!! The food looks amazing, but I could just do the views and starve. More than fine with me. Your hotel looks so glam – I love how your outfits really fit the style of the hotel, too!!

  25. June 24, 2015 / 6:23 PM

    Thanks for sharing your tips, I think Santorini sounds like more my style if it’s calm and peaceful. Beautiful photos by the way :)

    I’ve been to Rhodes and Santorini, albeit in the middle of the summer, and swore I would never go back to Greece…way too crowded, hot and touristy for me but you have convinced me I need to go back ! Gorgeous photos and fantastic looking hotel!

  31. June 25, 2015 / 9:27 AM

    Ugh you are killing me! The views, the food, the accommodations… everything about this trip sounds amazing. Thanks for sharing more of your gorgeous pictures today.

  32. June 26, 2015 / 11:36 AM

    It looks like it’s a pretty clean town. And I never get tired of seeing all your photos from the trip. Seriously a gorgeous place to visit!

  33. June 27, 2015 / 11:45 PM

    the pictures are absolutely gorgeous! i think if i was younger i’d go to mykonos, but if we ever get to go we might just visit santorini. although if we’re already there we may as well pop over lol.

  34. June 29, 2015 / 10:45 PM

    These views!!! So stunning. These recaps are great, thanks for sharing!
