Spend Time at Little Venice on Mykonos

Written by in , Comments Off on Spend Time at Little Venice on Mykonos

Mykonos is one of those Greek islands that top people’s lists as one of the “must see” places in Greece. If you look at the geography of the island alone, it may appear as if the island doesn’t have as much to offer as a place like Crete or Santorini, whose geography makes up part of the experience of the trip. However, Mykonos has something to offer that is truly unique. This is where the jet setting crowd comes to relax, unwind, and participate in some of the best nightlife that Greece has to offer.

Nowhere is this celebratory feeling more prevalent than at Little Venice in the main town of Chora on the island. Here’s more information on Little Venice and what it has to offer visitors:

Romantic Section of Chora on Mykonos

Those who have been to Venice in Italy will understand the reference best since the city of Venice captures the same romantic atmosphere that Little Venice on Mykonos does. Little Venice is a romantic quarter right on the water in Chora that presents the visitor with plenty of places to relax, eat, and enjoy a drink in a beautiful setting. You can certainly picture walking hand in hand with someone you care about. However, this place isn’t just for lovers – everyone can enjoy it. There was a time when this coastal area was filled with large homes, but now, most of them have been converted into shops, restaurants, and cafes that provide endless amusement for locals and tourists alike.

What to Do at Little Venice on Mykonos

If you’re looking for a place to walk around during your stay on Mykonos, head to Little Venice! Meander your way through the streets browsing through the shops until you get hungry. The boutiques here are unique and charming and should be enjoyed right up until sunset approaches. Little Venice has one of the best sunsets on the whole island, which means that if you know you want to sit outside and eat a meal while the sun is setting, you’ll need to secure your table well in advance during peak tourist season.

Enjoy the Beach By Day

Do you love spending time at the beach but don’t want to miss out on the chance to enjoy Little Venice? Alevkantra Beach is right next to this romantic quarter, which means that you can easily spend a few hours enjoying the peak sun and then when you’re done enjoying the beach, head to Little Venice to walk and take in a great meal. It is certainly possible to have the best of both worlds! In fact, Little Venice evolved because of the popularity of this beach. Although it is possible to enjoy the full amenities at the beach, it is nice to have a place to go after you’re done sunbathing.

While visiting the Greek island of Mykonos, you won’t want to miss the chance to visit Little Venice, which is a section of the main town of Chora.
