To do this you can simply walk around the streets of the town, stopping at some of the local boutiques and absorbing all the beauty and style of the area.
Feeling brave? Why not hire a scooter?
If you are tired of walking, then there is no way better to see the island then on a scooter. As long as you are careful, these can offer you the chance to have some fun whilst you explore and you may get to see parts of the Island that you wouldn’t if you were simply walking!
Pay a visit to the Armenistis Lighthouse
Feeling a little adventurous? If you are then why not check out the Armenistis Lighthouse. It may be considered a bit of a hike for some, and at times the ground underfoot can be a touch tricky, but once you have reached the top you will be greeted by some of the very best views in the entire island. Perfect for an impromptu photo-shoot.
Take a picture at the Windmills
Talking of photos; one of the most photographed parts of the island has to be the iconic Mykonos Windmills. Built in the 16th century, they are not only a beautiful testament to the history of Mykonos but they also make the ideal backdrop for a holiday memory!
