Well, the truth is 48 hours are not enough to enjoy Mykonos and all it can offer. But even if you have very limited time to spend on the island you can have an idea and understand why Mykonos has become so famous to the world.
Although Mykonos has hundreds of wonderful places to see and a lot of amazing things to do, you can still experience the unique Mykonian lifestyle in just 2 days.
First of all, you will need to book a convenient and elegant place to stay. We highly recommend choosing one of the many villas in Mykonos for your accommodation, as it will be the best way to dive deep into one of the island’s characteristics: luxury. According to your needs and likes, you can choose a Mykonos town villa or a villa near a beach.
The second thing you should take care of is your transportation. As you will have so little time to spend on the island, you don’t want to waste it on trying to find how to get to the places you want to visit.
A good option is to rent a car or a bike. If you prefer a more cozy way, you can book a limousine with a driver from a concierge service agency.
As soon as you leave your things at your villa, put your swimming suit on and head for one of the beautiful sandy beaches: Psarou, Platys Gialos, Paranga, Kalo Livadi, Ornos, Agios Ioannis. Some of the beaches have these all day resorts where you can find everything to spend a relaxing day on the beach. Some of the best ones are Scorpios at Paranga, Nammos at Psarou, Principote at Panormos and Alemagou at Ftelia beach. All of them have great restaurants where you can have a tasty meal or a snack. For your meal choose something with fish or seafood as they are always fresh and very well cooked in Mykonos.
After you have enough relaxation and sea for one day and a really pleasant lunch, take your car or limo and head to the Windmills. This is one of the best spots to watch the sunset.
Spend a few hours to wander through the narrow streets of Mykonos Town and stop at a Little Venice café to enjoy your first cocktail. There are a lot of bars and small clubs in the center of the town and most of the tourists start their night with bar hopping and end up in a big night club.
Some good bars and clubs in Mykonos Town are: Baos bar, Void, Cinderella, Toy Room, Jackie O’ bar, Scarpa, Astra, Moni, 180 Sunset bar, Queen and Galleraki.
Drink your coffee at your balcony or garden and take a refreshing dive into your private swimming pool. Wear comfortable shoes and clothes, take a hat, your swimming suit and a towel and get ready for some sightseeing. You can visit one of the many museums, the Paraportiani Church or Ano Mera, a small idyllic town in the center of the island.
Drive to one of the virgin or less organized beaches like Choulakia, Fokos and Lia. A great option is Agios Sostis beach where you will find Kiki’s Tavern and have a delicious meal cooked on charcoal – after swimming in the crystal clear waters.
Head to one of the big all-day beach bars – like Nammos, Scorpios or Alemagou before sunset. You can’t miss their sunset rituals and happenings.
Spend your second night in Mykonos in one of these party beaches where the day beach bars turn into crowded night clubs. You will experience the feeling of dancing barefoot on the sand, under a starry sky. Stay as long as you like – the party here lasts all night.
On your way back to your Mykonos villa, think about your next visit to the island. You are
