Mykonos is one of those places that you just have to experience for yourself once in this lifetime. It is the epitome of a European party island, and is a revolving door to travelers from May to September.
While Mykonos is easily the rowdiest place we've ever taken people for yoga, it is truly a bucket list experience,. And since we're all about finding balance and enjoyment in life, we embraced the vibe here while staying well too!
Best Healthy Restaurants in Mykonos
As you walk around Little Venice and the main square by the port in Mykonos, you'll find tons of adorable cafes, delicious Greek and Italian restaurants, etc, and most of them you can find some naturally vegan / vegetarian / healthy seafood options.
Katerina's - We took our group here for a beautiful view of the water, and we all shared lots of vegan and vegetarian appetizers including Greek salad, pita bread with eggplant dip & tzatziki, and veggie risotto was a hit for the table as well.
The Point - wonderful picturesque cafe with fruit smoothies, crepes and coffees.
Vegera - cute restaurant with lots of veggie options.
Best Adventures in Mykonos
Walking Little Venice
Walking around the cobblestone streets of Little Venice is so simple, but honestly one of the best ways to spend your time in Mykonos. Greek history lives in old windmills and picturesque stairwells, and there's beauty at every turn, so have your camera ready! Shop for jewelry and handmade ceramics and locally designed beach frocks.
Sunset Yoga at Mykonos Castle
We didn't have time to tick this one off the bucket list, but it sounds and looks absolutely stunning! Take in an epic view of the town and watch the sun go down as you flow with a local teacher. Oh yeah, and it's at an old castle.
Rent an ATV / motorbike
A great way to get around town. It gets the adrenaline pumping a bit, you get to navigate away from all the crowds and maybe even head to the rugged north shore without a plan. Most are less than 50 Euro for the whole day!
Best Beaches in Mykonos
Mykonos is known for its beaches, and with good reason. Many have plenty of beach bars and restaurants, complete with day beds and over priced cocktails.
Our favorite beaches are Paraga, Platis Gialos and Psarau. They're all right next to each other on the map, and you can hike around the cliffs to go from one to the next, or jump on the hop on hop off ferry for 5 Euro.

Cocktail at Nammos beach bar in Psarou
Dine with a windmill & sunset view
Stay up way too late shopping, night clubbing at Moni or Scorpios, or simply taking in the amazing people watching in the streets!
Overall adventure rating for this island is a 5. It's beautiful, definitely bucket list worthy, and a blast, but to get your adrenaline pumping- you'll simply want to hop to another island.
