There is a lot to discover here, and we know you will have a great time on the so-called Island of the Winds.

We know all the tips and tricks to make this a special vacation, which is why we’ve listed 5 of the many exciting activities that will help you explore this marvelous island – check out what’s not to be missed when you visit Mykonos for a fun and adventurous vacation.
Why come to Greece if not for the beaches, right? Sure, there are many islands where you can explore lovely beaches and enjoy the magnificent sea, but this one can offer you something that not many (if any) spots can – the most hedonistic way to spend the beach day.
You probably know that this island is best known for its many beach bars where you can enjoy your day in the sun like never before.
With chilled drinks in hand and a breathtaking view of the sea, you’re guaranteed to have a great time. Of course, there will be upbeat music for almost the entire day – Mykonos is known for extravagant parties that last from early afternoon till dawn (sometimes even longer). It’s near impossible to pick the best bar, but we’ll list a few popular places we know you’ll like.
What could be more fun than a private party at sea? If you happen to get tired of basic parties at beaches, you might want to consider renting a yacht with your travel companions. This is one of the best ways to explore the sea and have fun at the same time. You could even book a professional chef who will prepare a fabulous meal to make the occasion even more special. Are you ready to sail into the sunset while dancing on a glamorous yacht?
Since you’ll already be on a yacht, you should definitely check out one of the most precious islands in Greece – Delos. Although a little islet, Delos has a significant place in Greek history and Mykonos history, for that matter.
Here you will see ancient Greek ruins like nowhere else – Delos is so special that it’s under UNESCO protection. It would be a shame to come to Greece and not explore one of its most sacred islands – this might not be the typical kind of fun like parties, but trust us – you can’t help but fall in love with this place.
A horse riding tour might not be your first association when someone mentions this party island, but it’s a fun and unique way to see this island. You can book a tour that will go by one of the beautiful beaches – we suggest picking sunset time. This is a perfect choice for couples, but even if you’re not on a honeymoon kind of vacation, horse riding can be an exciting addition to an already fantastic trip.
If you want to get the feel of rural Mykonos (something we don’t see much these days), consider booking a tour from the traditional Ano Mera village. The ride will take you through magnificent landscapes and end on the lovely Fokos Beach. It’s truly an experience to remember – and one that not everybody who comes here has.
If you love a good old adrenaline rush, this activity is for you. Tragonisi (also known as Dragonisi) is a tiny islet located off the south coast. It takes just a short boat ride to get there, but when you do, magical nature awaits you.
Tragonisi is known for its one-of-a-kind cave system, perfect for snorkeling and diving. You will be amazed by what the blue water hides – one of the secrets being a precious Monachus Monachus monk seal that lives in this area.
Kalafatis is your starting point for the boat ride to Tragonisi (the distance between them is about 3 miles). If you have it in you to go for more than one exciting activity, we suggest you stop at Kalafatis on your way back. This spot is known for excellent weather conditions for windsurfing. Thanks to the famous Meltemi wind that blows fiercely on this part of the southern coast, you’re in for an exciting adventure.
Built in 1902, The Archeological Museum was designed primarily for housing artifacts discovered in the famous Purification Pit on the nearby islet of Rhenia. It’s located in Mykonos town, and it features a stunning collection of items from the Hellenistic era. Even those who aren’t much familiar with Greek history will be impressed by the beauty of this museum.
The lovely town on the western coast, also called Chora, has a lot of amazing spots you should check out. Starting from the legendary windmills located minutes from the town’s center to the beautiful Little Venice, Chora is full of fantastic sights and Instagram spots. Of course, we must mention the lovely Panagia Paraportiani Church, the most famous out of many Orthodox churches here.
