Neighbourhood Overview

Booking an airfare to Mykonos is easy when you use Webjet. However, finding your way around the small island may be a little tricky if you’ve never been before. Mykonos is comprised of seven main neighbourhoods. Chora is located on the west coast of the island and is the main tourist hub. Many travellers make a beeline for Chora upon arrival at Mykonos Airport (JMK). It is worth noting that Chora may also be referred to as Mykonos Town. This area is home to most of the island’s accommodation, restaurants, and tourist attractions. Some major landmarks in Chora include the whitewashed Church of Panagia Paraportiani, the Archaeological Museum of Mykonos, the Aegean Maritime Museum, and the Folk Art Museum. You’ll also find the windmills of Kato Mili here; these mills are one of the most popular must-sees for travellers on return flights to Mykonos. Kalafatis is a little more than 11 kilometres east of Chora and is home to some of the island’s most exclusive beach resorts. If you want incredible snorkelling and windsurfing excursions with your holiday flights to Mykonos, book your resort stay in Kalafatis.
