Mykonos Contrasts – Monasteries & Beaches
There is much more to Mykonos Island than the whitewashed buildings around Mykonos Town. And you haven't really been to Mykonos until you explore the island beyond the famous and picturesque harbor. Come join us for a look at some of the best beaches and picturesque bays on the island (no, this does not include the nude beaches). And you will also find that there is still an unspoiled village on the island that offers a charming juxtaposition to the hustle and bustle of the coastal settlements and resorts. Don’t worry, you’ll still have plenty of time left to spend your money and use your credit cards in the many boutiques, shops, cafes and restaurants. World famous for its pure white houses, churches with brilliant blue or red domes, windmills and superb beaches, both first timers and veterans can enjoy this scenic overview of Mykonos Island. On your drive, you first head south from the port to Agios Ioannis Beach. During the drive enjoy a view of Delos Island in the background. Then pass one of the most beautiful and cosmopolitan beaches in Mykonos, Ornos, with its luxury hotels, tavernas and yachts moored offshore. Pass the beaches of Kalafatis and Agia Anna, then head to the unspoiled center of the island to the traditional village of Ano Mera, where you'll visit the very interesting 16th-century Monastery Panyia Tourliani. Following this visit, it’s time to become a Greek and sip a glass of ouzo as well as try some traditional Greek appetizers in the little village square before returning to the pier and lively Mykonos Town.
