Top Things to do in Mykonos in Three Days

To tell the truth, you can’t see Mykonos in only 3 days. But as everyone’s time is limited nowadays, we have shorted out the most important things you should try on such a short visit. We believe that you can at least have an idea of Mykonos special attraction.

If you have only 3 days to spend here, we suggest you rent Villa in Mykonos. The best accommodation for an intense 3-days tour would be one of Mykonos Villas.

  • Get lost in old town

Spend some hours just walking around at the Old Town in Mykonos. You will be amazed by the beautiful views, the traditional Cycladic architecture, the narrow alleys and the fresh smell of flowers coming from the yards.

You will find countless cafes, restaurants and shops. Take a break at the café of your choice to drink a coffee or a cocktail and watch the tourists go by.

Make sure you have a camera with you because you can get some really nice photos here and put on your most comfortable shoes!

  • Visit the famous windmills

Their Greek name is Kato Myloi and they are all placed on a hill at the south –east of Chora. They form a row of 7 mills, pointing to the ocean. From the 17th to the 19th century, they offered a lot to the local economy, providing passengers with bread and rusk, as Mykonos was a necessary stop for the passing boats.

There used to be more than 20 windmills on the island but most of them faded out as they became useless. The best preserved one is the private windmill of Geronymos, where most of the old equipment is in good condition.

The windmills have become a trademark for Mykonos, as they are the first thing you see if you approach the island by a boat.


  • Sunset drinks in Little Venice

Little Venice will remind you the actual Venice in Italy, as its buildings are hanging over the edge of the sea. It is a very idyllic part of Chora, especially at sunset.

There are many cafes and bars in Little Venice where you can relax enjoying an exotic drink or a beer, while watching the waves smashing on the houses base. The white and colourful buildings are cramped next to each other, forming a solid “wall”.

  • Delicious Greek food in Mykonos

Mykonos has a lot of good places to eat, from fine dining to finger food. Eating is a whole culture here and many famous chefs prepare amazing dishes that will satisfy the most demanding customers.

Fresh fish and seafood are plenty in Mykonos and usually coming from the local market and the fishermen of the island straight to your meal. You must try traditional Cycladic dishes, Mykonian cheese and some of the local wines and tsipouro.


  • Rent your private Villa in Mykonos

One of the most famous Greek islands and located in the Cycladic region of the beautiful Aegean Sea, Mykonos offers amazing beaches, beautiful nature, delicious Greek food and a chic lifestyle. However, the island is also very famous for its Villas and the touch of luxury that they can offer. Most Mykonos Villas offer breathtaking views, spacious areas, impeccable amenities, private swimming pools and many more. So even if you visit this gorgeous island for just three days a Mykonos Villa rental is always a good idea in order to enjoy the island to its fullest.

  • Explore the island on an ATV

Mykonos is 33 square miles in size and most visitors only see a small part of it, even if they stay much longer on the island. If you wish to have a deeper look into Mykonos island and to enjoy some amazing panoramic views from the hills, then you should rent an ATV. Since they are ideal for climbing to the steep hills we suggest you rent one of the bigger ones.

With an ATV you can access the most isolated and wild parts of the island, such as the virgin beach of Houlakia or the Lighthouse of Armenistis. You can also visit some traditional villages like Ano Mera and Kalafatis and take a look at everyday life of the locals. As you will be able to follow paths that no car can follow, you will see the real wild nature of Mykonos. The bike rental agency will give you a map and explain to you the road rules.

  • Dance like no one is watching

Well, it’s easy to attend a crazy Mykonos party but you may need a couple of days to get in the island’s mood, relax and really enjoy it! If your time is limited, there is just one advice to give you: dance like no one is watching!

Have a couple of drinks, surrender to the latest dancing beats the DJ plays for his guests and pretend you are alone.
