5. The Windmills – A Star Among the Most Instagram Worthy Places in Mykonos

For centuries, locals and travelers have affectionately referred to Mykonos as the Island of Winds. Strong airs have long been a trademark of the island, which is why it has so many windmills. You can see them from everywhere in Chora and they’re some of the most Instagram worthy places in Mykonos. The mills are well worth a visit, particularly when there aren’t many tourists around.

6. Mykonos from Above

By walking up between 10 to 15 minutes, you’ll be atop the hill of the island. This is one of the best photography spots in Mykonos, as you can get incredible shots of the whole island. Prepare for one of the most Instagram worthy places in Mykonos, where you can see the village, the wide Mediterranean and the mountains. Just magic!

If you have energy left and it is not too hot, I can strongly recommend THIS HIKE for even more breathtaking views!

7. Beach Vibe Times

The Mediterranean offers some of the most iconic beaches in the world, and the Mykonos ones are world-famous. The fact that beaches are hilly and full of rocks also provide some of the best photography spots in Mykonos. Find a more secluded beach and head there for a sunrise. One of the most Instagram worthy places is well worth the early rise!

8. Little Rochari – A Boutique Instagram Gem!

The Little Rochari offers some of the best photography spots in Mykonos. The rooms are simple with clear-colored furniture, but the balconies are magic. Straight from the room, you can gaze out to the gorgeous street for some really unique snaps of the town and the bright blue sea.

9.  Scorpios – The Boho Chic Oasis 

Scorpios is definitely my favorite beach club, it’s basically a modern interpretation of the ancient Greek agora. With lots of open spaces and a very boho chic vibe, Scorpios has some of the best photography spots in Mykonos. The whole beach club has a super rustic look, kind of Flintstone-y, that looks amazing in pics and is also the best beach club if you ask me!

There’s no questions why this is my favorite right?

10. Sant Anna – The Luxurious Experience 

Sant Anna is all luxury and style, making it one of the most Instagram worthy places in Mykonos. A broad place built to resemble a paradisiac island within the island, its furniture in greys are a stark contrast with the Mykonos blues. Every detail in Sant Anna is built to transport guests into deep luxury. What about spend the day on your own island in the pool? Well, for sure one of the best photography spots in Mykonos!

11. Nammos – A Greek Design Marvel 

The Nammos beach club is a design gem. Its design is based on traditional Cycladic architecture, in whitewashed stone and deep turquoise. A true feast for the eyes, the Nammos concept goes well beyond a beach club: it’s almost a resort. It has suites, restaurants, boutiques, and more than one beach club.

Nammos is so chic and design perfect!

This is one of those places that can get really crowded on the island, so it’s a good idea to book ahead. And then prepare your camera for some of the best photography spots in Mykonos!

Another favorite, even if I couldn’t fit it into this list, is Kalua. A little more traditional than the three I mentioned above, it’s small and cozy. Due to its location, Kalua is also shielded from the powerful Mykonos winds and the vibe and service here is among the best in Mykonos!

Kalua is a smaller and more personal place, with amazing service!

The Hip Mykonos Restaurants: For Instagram Shots for Foodies!

There are plenty of hip eateries throughout the island, offering some of the best photography spots in Mykonos. Foodies and photo addicts will fall in love with the look and flavors of the island’s restaurants.

Although Nice N Easy didn’t make it into this list because its design isn’t very Instagrammable, I highly recommend its delish Greek food and the perfect location by the sea and with a view of little Venice.

One of the most Instagram worthy places in Mykonos is also my favorite restaurant: Interni! Mostly dedicated to seafood, the ambiance here is among the coolest on the island. The design in whites, with a big patio full of trees, makes it picture perfect. Besides, you’ll feel right at home in this cozy restaurant, perfect for a quiet date. All while enjoying one of the best photography spots in Mykonos!

Part of a British-Chinese chain, Hakkasan Ling Ling is the Mediterranean sister of a London Michelin star eatery. It’s also one of the most Instagram worthy places in Mykonos!
