Mykonos is one of the most visited islands in Greece and attracts several types of people: groups of friends looking for party nights, honeymooners, cruise ship passengers only there for a day trip, families and of course, photographers, whether professional or amateurs.
Exploring the island is easy to rent a car, quad or motorbike, or even public bus. Mykonos town, on the other hand, is only accessible by foot. Enjoy its labyrinthine streets and find all the picture-perfect spots!

Its unique cobblestoned streets
The biggest tourist attraction on the island is Mykonos Town, also known as Chora.
Spend hours wandering on Mykonos streets, getting lost in its colorful maze: you’ll find bougainvilleas and pennants among shops of all kinds: you’ll love it!
Photo Tip: if you want the streets only for yourself, go for sunrise! Otherwise, the streets will be full of people and shops stalls.
Only a few meters away from little Venice, 5 mills stand on the top of a hill.
These mills are photogenic from different angles, both at sunrise or dusk. My favorite? The last one, from where you can get a different perspective of Little Venice.
Photo Tip: Although the mills are no longer operational, the wind is still strong! Leave your hat in the hotel room for this occasion.
Close to the windmills, Mykonos has its own small version of Venice.
There, the fishermen’s cottages-built 2 centuries ago perch on the sea with their colorful balconies. Today these houses have become restaurants, cafes, and bars that offer some of the best sunsets on the island.
Photo Tip: visit 360º panoramic bar in the highest area of Mykonos Town for a perfect sunset view.
Paraportiani, the oldest church in Mykonos
The white and pristine church of Paraportiani is actually the set of 5 churches that were built one on top of another. Its white color contrasts with the blue sky and is one of the most photogenic places on the island.
Photo Tip: Visit Paraportiani in the morning for the best light.
