Greece, Mykonos Guide (B): 8 Postcard-Ready Spots in Mykonos

8 Postcard-Ready Spots in Mykonos
Mykonos is the stuff that dreams are made of. The island is brimming with so much character that, despite not living nearby the town center (chora), we decided to visit it twice.

Here are some of the best spots to capture Mykonos’ unique charm. Whether you’re an amateur or professional, you are guaranteed to bring home some picturesque shots!

1. Kato Mili

Ah… nothing can be more iconic to Mykonos than the world-famous windmills! Five windmills standing proud facing the chora with a bluer-than-blue sky backdrop. It is located at the far end of the town, but it’s really just a 15-minute walk from the Old Port.

2. Little Venice

Along the coastal trail from Old Port to the windmills, you will pass by the scenic sight of the Aegean sea waves crashing against Little Venice. Little Venice is also said to be one of the best sunset spots in the island, so you better time your schedule well!

3. Panagia Paraportiani

Forget all the rage about blue-domed and red-domed churches. In Mykonos, the white-washed chapel of Panagia Paraportiani takes the crown. It’s an understated jewel of Byzantine aesthetic.

4. Boni’s Mill

It’s a shame that most visitors don’t bother to climb all the way up to this lesser-known mill, because this is without question the most stunning photography spot in Mykonos. Where else can you pack a bird’s-eye view of the city, red-domed churches, breathtaking blue coast and iconic windmill in one single shot?

5. Old Port ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
