Mykonos is one of the most famous Greek islands. If you chose it as your summer destination, you’re in for an exciting holiday.

Keep reading to find out the answer – we’ve gathered all the useful information for those who plan short Mykonos vacations.
Admittedly, 5 days seems like a short time for a summer vacation, but sometimes you don’t have a choice. However, the good news here is that Mykonos is a very small island, and you can easily get around and reach every famous spot pretty quickly.
So, it’s safe to say that your visit will be more than enough for checking out all the amenities, and we can promise you that you’ll have a magnificent time – there’s no place like Mykonos on the entire planet. So, let’s organize your travel itinerary.
When you’re on The Island of the Winds, beaches are the most important part of your travel itinerary. There are so many great beaches to choose from upon arriving on this island, and you have probably heard that the majority of beaches in Mykonos are excellent party destinations. You have enough days to see both parties and relaxing beaches, but for starters, we suggest you head to one of the fancy places where the music blasts 24/7 and the cocktails are fabulous.
Whatever part of the coast you decide to explore, you won’t regret it. All beaches here are beautiful, with clear turquoise water and golden sand. There are great beach bars that will enhance your beach experience – Scorpios, Kalua, Principote, Alemagou, and Buddha-Bar are among the most popular ones. But let’s get back to choosing your beach – here are the most fabulous ones that should definitely make your shortlist:
Chora (which means “town” in Greek) is the main town of Mykonos and one of the most magnificent destinations on Cycladic islands. Although tiny, this town has so much to offer, and it would take you long to uncover all of its hidden spots and amenities. Still, you can still fit the basics into your travel itinerary and explore the place. You don’t need a guide – just wander around, and you will get an authentic experience.
All tourists like Chora – it will take you a few minutes to fall in love with the sight of the windmills or lovely restaurants in Little Venice – this area is not to be missed. Even if you just take a walk through the center, the unique Cycladic architecture and the lovely narrow streets will take your breath away. Enjoy the food, shopping, and sightseeing before the sun sets, and then head to one of many bars in town for a taste of Mykonos nightlife.
When you’re in Mykonos, a trip to Delos is an absolute must. The tiny isle is a huge part of Mykonos history, and it offers some of the most beautiful ancient ruins in the world – UNESCO has put Delos under its protection, and the island is considered one of the most important archeological sites in entire Greece.
It takes about 30-45 minutes to sail to Delos from Mykonos town.
