Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very crowded with 3 large cruise ships in port. Having said that we did enjoy the narrow winding streets full of cafe and shops, all very clean. The views from a high vantage point was stunning.
Dont let the crowds worry you.. visit this place.

When we arrived in the old port of Mykonos, we only had about 4 hours to spend. We walked north (left if you’re facing the shore, right if you’re facing the ocean) hoping to find a beach. Very shortly, we came across a little dirt trail down to the water, and we walked down. It was a beautiful beach that is not marked on any map, and seemed to be used only by a few locals! During the time we were there, there were three people who came down briefly, but we basically had the whole beach to ourselves for about three hours. If we had gone to a marked beach, we would have had the same mixed experience that many others have noted here - dealing with tourist shops and many people. The whole island is ringed with beaches - why go to the one with the most people? I had a screenshot of the location to post here, but for some reason TripAdvisor will not allow me to post it. Just walk north from the old port along the shore and take the little trail on your left down to the first little beach!

All of the “old port” still in use by some of the small ferries. It is surrounded by restaurant, caffès, souvenirs shops. The water is crystal clear and the area, in general is very clean.

This port is not the new one where the cruise ships dock with a cruise ship terminal, nor is it where the big ferries stop. It's the one close to the center where you will find lots of tourist restaurants with outdoor seating and views of the sea. Good views, mediocre food.

Mykonos’ old port is a lovely area for walking and exploring. We first did this walk in the day time but at night, it’s even prettier as the lights and reflections sparkle across the water.
Starting from Old Port Beach, we followed the curve of the beach towards the old town. We couldn’t walk entirely along the waterfront and at the end of the beach we had to cut through the old town, past the tiny, red-domed Agia Anna church, before heading back down to the water.
We passed private luxury yachts and cruisers, as well as smaller, colourful fishing boats. We kept an eye out for the local pelicans but we didn’t see any.
We stopped briefly at Manto Mavrogenous Square to check out the statue of the 19th century Greek freedom-fighter after whom the square is named. The waterfront along here is lined by pricey restaurants and bars and shops selling sunhat, beach bags and souvenirs.
The walk finishes at the charming little blue-domed church of St Nicholas. Patron saint of fishermen, St Nicholas sits right on the waterfront, watching over the sea and offering protection to the boats and fishermen who set out each day from here. It is mostly always open and is worth stopping for a quick look inside.
Opposite the church is the old town hall. It’s rather plain and won’t catch your eye.
If, like us, you want to keep exploring, it’s very easy to just continue around the headland, past the Jackie O club, to the much-photographed Paraportiani Church and on to the Little Venice area and the famous Mykonos windmills.
Even if you walk right around to the windmills, it is not a long walk.
TIP: It is worth noting that the ticket kiosk for the boat tours to Delos is located next to the church. We planned to pre-book tickets but they told us we could easily turn up on the day and buy tickets on the spot - helpful advice and this was what we ended up doing. The boat leaves from here also.

Such a beautiful port to visit, the windmills are great, the views are breathtaking and the people are also great. The alleys are so cute with so many little shops in all the alleys!

This crescent shaped bay has turquoise colored watch with a variety of restaurants and stores. Easy to walk and fun to sit and enjoy a cold beverage while watching the sun set over the bay.

The Old Port is along a nice crescent shaped beach in Mykonos. My wife and I visited in October, so we missed the hordes of people in the summer. We strolled the beach once in the early evening on our way to a restaurant overlooking the harbor. It is a picturesque area.

Nice to stroll around but so noisy during July.It was really crowded when we decided to take a walk owing to the tourists from cruise ships that made such a fuss.Better to be visited before peak season if you want to enjoy it.
