Visit Mykonos: get started
MYKONOS TRAVEL GUIDE
WHAT TO EATThe catch of the day best consumed at cozy, seaside tavernas, unique cheeses from local farmers like spicy kopanisti and soft tyrovolia (used in popular onion pies called kremidopita), louza (dried and spiced pork slices) and almond cookies called amygdalota.
WHAT TO BRING BACKEye-shaped amulets, locally made sandals, flowing Greek island apparel or high-end fashion from the many luxury boutiques, handwoven shawls and classic souvenirs like a stuffed toy version of Petros the Pelican (see Fun Fact below!), or miniature replicas of the iconic Mykonos windmills.
FUN FACTOf all the celebs who travelled to Mykonos, perhaps none will ever be as famous as a white pelican named Petros. He was a bird found wounded on the coast by a fisherman. After being nursed back to health, Petros quickly became the island’s unofficial mascot, beloved by locals and visitors alike. After his death, three new pelicans were gifted to Mykonos…if you’re lucky, you might get an autograph!
