Things to do

Archaeological Museum of Mykonos:

The Archaeological Museum of Mykonos was started in 1905 to house the findings of an archaeological dig on the island of Rheneia. The Putrefaction Pit that was excavated dates back to 425 BC. This museum is one of the oldest in all of Greece, and was designed by Alexandros Lykakis.

Petros the Pelican:

Petros the Pelican is a unique fixture on the waterfront of Mykonos. He is the official mascot of the island. After a storm in 1954, he became a permanent resident of the island. It is a well-known "secret" that the current 'Petros' is actually a successor to the original Petros.

Little Venice:

Explore Little Venice, a waterfront neighbourhood in the town of Mykonos (or Chora). This area is full of small restaurants and bars, and provides a stunning view of the water. Little Venice is considered one of the island's most romantic locations.

Delos:

The island of Delos is an important historical site in Greece. Archaeological research on the island has led to some of the most fascinating finds, and has contributed to the collections of the Archaeological Musem of Delos and the National Archaeological Museum of Athens.

Kato Myli:

The 16 windmills at Kato Myli point to an early industrial past on the island of Mykonos. These windmills used to provide islanders with the power to grind grain in the 16th century. Additionally, the view from the windmills is spectacular. The town of Chora and the harbour further out are visible from here.

Weather on Mykonos

Weather on Mykonos is mostly sunny. Rainy weather is present in February and March only, and two wind cells influence the island greatly. The first is called Sirocco, present in winter. This brings sand and warmth from the deserts along the southern Mediterranean. The second is called the Meltemi, and it cools down hot summer days in July and August.

Travel to Mykonos

Mykonos Island International Airport (JMK) is located 2.5 miles outside of the town of Chora. Flights arrive and depart daily to and from Athens Airport (ATH) and other European airports. Car-carrying and passenger ferries arrive and depart daily to most islands, and are more frequent during the highest tourist season. Ferries land in the port town of Tourlos, and the Ormou Agiou Ioanni Agiou Stefanou Road runs north-bound along the west coast of the island, to the town of Mikonos.

Blue cactus villas is really a great choice. It has everything for your holidays, no matter even what group of people you are and what kind of vacations you gonna hav, this place is same suitable and for young guys and for families. I was staying whole august of 2016 and if I decide to visit Mykonos again for sure I will choose Blue Cactus again. It is a small complex of separated small villas, located in a quiet area of the island what makes a sence: you can relax without loud music or disturbing noises of mykonos town, but at same time it's near to everything (5-10' ride till beaches, town, clubs etc.) Each villa is fully equipped, very clean. The best part of everything about Blue Cactus, like it was said already in previous reviews many times, are it's owners:) they will do just everything you are expecting or need and..even more!!! Chtistina and Andreas, who run the complex of villas, are simply brilliant people. Without going into details I can say that my holidays would be completely different without them, and they know what I mean..:) people make a place, not opposite, and I hav found my best place in Mykonos:) P.S.: thank you, Christina and Andreas! I wish you all the best and I really hope to see you both again!!! M.

It has Wi-Fi air-conditioning and a Veranda for sunbathing with a view to die for. The view of the harbour and bay and the islands with the endless comings and goings of yachts,and ferries will turn you into a boat spotter for life. We took binoculars with us which were a must.... The house is surrounded by flowers outside and marble inside.... You can stroll down to the town, which is open day and night, or you can rent a car or motorbike, and explore the island and its many beaches. The little narrow streets of shops and restaurants and bars are open all day , and at night They are lit up with magical effect. Mykonos is not an island to be missed And this house is perfect.
