by Alex Kim Citrus Holidays

         For the famous windmills...

The island's most iconic landmark - its whitewashed round windmills make for amazing postcard-ready images. Take a quick hike up the tiny hill in the city's south and enjoy a more in-depth look at these (now) monuments, formerly used to grind grain.

         For that quintessential and much-loved Greek architecture...

This beautiful island of Cyclades showcases exceptional architectural elegance and refinement. Soak in the beauty and old-world charm of whitewashed houses with blue shutters cobbled narrow pathways offering a challenging yet refreshing stroll, colourful gardens and purple bougainvillaea’s in the middle of the neighbourhoods. Experience the serenity of picturesque chapels overlooking the Aegean, with rare icons and exhibits of Folklore Art and the windmills, a genuine landmark of Mykonos making this a truly magnificent destination!

For the laid-back island lifestyle...

Do you dream of a Greek island that’s low-key and laid back, where life goes on at such a slow pace that you can’t help but be swept up into ‘Greek Maybe Time’? The Greek islands which are a little more off the beaten path than the big hitters like Rhodes, Santorini, Corfu and Mykonos. They’re the sort of places where you’re more likely to find simple tavernas than tacky souvenir shops. 

For the white sandy beaches...

Mykonos, with its vibrant nightlife and cosmopolitan atmosphere, is part of the Cyclades group of islands and is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Greece. Holidays to Mykonos offer something to visitors of all ages who come to enjoy the kind of holiday they want—whether it’s parties or undisturbed relaxation. All this while surrounded by picturesque villages and magnificent beaches with white sands and the crystal clear waters of the Aegean Sea.

To visit the Church of Panagia Paraportiani...

Surrounded by the bars that have made Mykonos the Aegean’s most fashionable Greek island, the flower-bedecked Church of Panagia Paraportiani stands in ironic majesty and could be a highlight of a wander through the town’s picture-perfect very little Venezia. One of the most photographed places in the world, this church was created from four painted chapels with an additional bright white chapel on the higher floor.

For the authentic Greek food...

On this tour of Mykonos, immerse yourself in native history as your guide leads you to far-famed monuments and pleasant cafés, traditional stores, beautiful gardens and more. Mykonos features a few foods all its own that any food lover should try. The most notable of these is kopanisti, a cheese famed for its spicy, aromatic taste; ksinotira, a favourite native course and louse, a dish made up of skinny slices Lyonnais pork and spices.

For the sunsets...

Deep red or scarlet, the colours of the sky at sunset is among the best moments of your holidays in Mykonos. There are several places to enjoy and live the sunset experience in Mykonos. The Windmills in Chora are definitely the most popular place to see the sun going down and attracts a large crowd. Most visitors to Mykonos prefer to enjoy the sunset in the neighbourhood of Little Venice which makes it even more romantic as they enjoy a glass of wine or a drink. Wherever you are in the island during sunset, the best thing to do is stop and see the alteration of the colours on the horizon as the sun waves goodnight to the Aegean Sea.
