1. View over Mykonos Town
One of the best Instagram photo spots in Mykonos is this amazing viewpoint. From here, you have a view over the blue water and the white houses. Furthermore, in the background you even see the famous windmills! This is one of the most photogenic views I have ever seen. When I arrived here, I really couldn't believe how beautiful it was. Even if you're not going to take photos, you should really go here, because it's magnificent!
Moreover, it's only a 10-minute walk from Mykonos Town. Therefore, it won't take much time to get there!
This is one of the most photogenic streets in Mykonos. There are lots of flowers which makes it really cute. Furthermore, I really love that this street is so typical for the streets in the Greek islands with the blue tones and the cobblestones. When you take a photo here, everyone will immediately recognize that it's a street on a Greek island!
Since there are so many happy and bright colours in this street, it will definitely brighten up your feed. I'd recommend wearing something blue, pink or white, since it will totally match the colours of the street!
Furthermore, once you're ready taking photos and admiring the beauty of this place, you can go to Lalala where I'm walking towards in the first photo (you can see it next to my head). This is a very cute bar where you can have breakfast, brunch, desserts or something to drink. It's also the perfect place to sit down and relax for a while, because there are very comfortable sofas outside!
3. Snoopy Fashion Store
This is probably one of the cutest shops I have ever seen! The blue colour and the cute sign of the name of the store make it very photogenic. Therefore, it's definitely one of the best Instagram photo spots in Mykonos!
Snoopy Fashion Store is a store where you can buy clothes and accessories for children. If you have kids or if you're looking for a present for a child, you should really go inside as well! There are so many cute little things to buy.
4. Underneath the pink flowers
How pretty is this pink tree? I love the pink flowers in Mykonos so much! Especially in combination with the blue windows and doors. At this place you can capture the flowers perfectly.
I would advice taking this photo early in the morning! As you see, there is a very large part of the street behind me on the photos. During the day, it can get very busy here, because this photo spot is in the center of Mykonos Town.
It's so much fun strolling through the streets in Mykonos, since you will keep finding cute places, pretty buildings and colourful spots. I really love that the photos at this spot can totally describe what a day in Mykonos is like!
5. Mattheou Andronikou
This is probably one of the most photographed streets on the island! I totally get that, since the flowers in this street are very unique. It actually looks as if the flowers are floating in the air!
I was really surprised and so happy when I saw this street for the first time in real life, because it was even more beautiful than I expected it to be. Especially if you love flowers as much as I do, I'm sure you will really love this street.
The railing behind the blue railing on the left used to be red, so the street used to be a bit more colourful. However, lately it's painted and now the railing is gray. Even though I think the red colour of the railing was more beautiful and suited the rest of the street better, I still think this is one of the prettiest streets in Mykonos!
6. In front of the Muse Shop
If you love the colour blue, you will love Mykonos and you will definitely love this street! This street is so pretty and it's just amazing how these two buildings match perfectly! They both have the same blue colour making this place very unique and photogenic.
Furthermore, this is also a lovely area to be since you can go to the Muse Shop (on the left) or to Midas (in the background) and maybe buy something. At the Muse Shop you find replicas of all kinds of objects from the most important museums of Greece. Furthermore, you can buy non-touristy souvernirs that are not that expensive, making this shop definitely worth a visit! At the Midas shop you can find traditional Greek products, so it's a great idea to have a look there as well.
Busulas is a lovely restaurant in the heart of Mykonos Town and it is also very beautiful for photos! Especially the colourful tree makes this place perfect for a photo.
Furthermore, besides taking photos here you should also really consider having dinner here! The food at this restaurant is amazing. You can have great Greek dishes at Busulas and there are also vegetarian and vegan options! Moreover, as you see, they have a lovely terrace to sit while having dinner.
8. Island Bliss
Island Bliss if one of my favourite and definitely one of the best Instagram photo spots in Mykonos! Even though this isn't one of the places that's most on Instagram on Mykonos, it's definitely worth taking photos here! I was just walking a bit in Mykonos Town when I suddenly stumbled upon this lovely place. I totally love it, since the colours here are wonderful. Furthermore, the text on the building makes this place very unique!
9. In front of Kessaris
The white buildings in this street, the cobblestones and the pink flowers make this place so unique and photogenic! Since this is one of the busiest areas in Mykonos, it's a great idea to come early. Not only to take photos, but also because it's really an amazing experience to explore the streets in Mykonos when they are still empty! This is one of these streets where I could be for hours to just admire the beauty of it.
Furthermore, there are also some lovely shops in this street and as you see in the background, you can also have something to eat here!
Moreover, in the background you also see Kessaris. Kessaris is a jewelry shop that has several locations in Greece! If you're looking for jewelery, or if you just love seeing beautful jewelry, you should really have a look here!
10. The windmills
Mykonos is probably most famous for its windmills! Therefore, you really shouldn't miss the windmills if you're taking photos in Mykonos! The windmills aren't only very typical for the island, they are also very photogenic. I just love how this place looks completely different from the other photo spots in Mykonos, such as the colourful streets. Even though it looks like a completely other location, it's actually very close to the center of Mykonos Town.
The place where I'm sitting on this photo is really the best place to capture the windmills. This bench is located in front of a little store and you'll immediately see it when you arrive at the windmills. From here, you can capture three of the mills and a bit of the area surrounding it. However, it's also a great idea to take of photo with just one windmill when you're standing in front of it!
On windy days, keep in mind that especially here there will be strong winds! It may be a bit harder to take some photos on these days, certainly in my case, when you're wearing a dress and when your hair is long.
11. Blue stairs
How beautiful are these blue stairs in combination with the pink tree? I totally love this photo spot! Also, the lamp is really cute and photogenic as well!
This place belongs to the best Instagram photo spots in Mykonos, especially because you can really vary your pose here! For example, you can walk on the street, walk on the stairs, or sit on the stairs.
Fun fact, this is actually the same tree as the one of photo spot nine! Therefore, it's perfect to combine these two photo spots with each other. I really love that these photos look completely different from each other, even though they are actually located next to each other. However, that just perfectly describes Mykonos, because no matter where you look, every single spot is so pretty!
What makes you happy? This amazing building definitely makes me happy! I just love the text on this building, because it gives the whole street so much positivity!
Furthermore, the colours here are really nice as well, because there's blue, red and white in this street! If you want to make this photo and if you love the blue door as much as I do, then make sure to be there when the store is closed. Otherwise, the door is open and you can't really see the pretty colour of it!
However, I would also recommend going here when the store is open. The store sells clothes, so it's definitely a fun activity to see it from the inside as well! Furthermore, this is in the heart of Mykonos, so you'll probably be around anyways.
Another fun thing to know, the store actually encourages people to take pictures here! On the website they say that you don't bother them at all while making photos.
Moreover, Happiness is a family business that already exists for several decades. The name of the owner of the store Eftychia, which means Happiness in Greek! Therefore, the store is called Happiness.
13. Next to the Louis Vuitton Shop
Another very good photo spot is this one! This building looks really beautiful because of the lovely tree in front of it. I just love how large the pink tree is and how beautiful it looks in combination with the white building! Furthermore, you can make many photos here. For example from far away, but also a bit closer to the tree. You can just stand in front of the building, but you can also sit on the bench. Definitely one of the best Instagram photo spots in Mykonos!
Furthermore, when I was here, there were many cute cats here as well! When I was taking some photos, they actually were fed, which was so cute. Therefore, for those who love cats, this is the place to go as well! This place is located next to the Louis Vuitton Shop by the way, so if you like that shop you can find it here!
14. Alley with balcony and pink tree
This is really one of the cutest alleys on the island and therefore certainly one of the best Instagram photo spots in Mykonos. Just image, how lovely would it be to live in the house with that balcony and have a view over this lovely alley with the pink tree every day? I think it's definitely one of the best places to live in Mykonos!
15. Little Venice
Little Venice is another place in Mykonos, but it's only a few minutes from Mykonos Town. The houses here look a lot like those in Venice, and therefore the name of this place is Little Venice! Because of the blue water and the lovely houses, this place if very photogenic.
Furthermore, there are lots of great restaurants and bars next to the water, so you can have something to drink here with this amazing view! In my opinion, this is one of the most amazing places in Mykonos.
16. Huge pink tree
This is actually the same place as photo spot eleven, but then the photo is taken from a different angle. However, if you don't get the stairs in the capture, it looks completely different and it's beautful in another way! Here, the focus is more on the huge pink tree, which I really love.
17. Red church
This spot is very different from the other ones, but you should definitely go here as well. The view from this church is just amazing. From here you see the white houses and the wonderful blue sea. Furthermore, it is so unique that the rooftop of the church is red! Therefore, it's really one of the best Instagram photo spots in Mykonos! I have never seen a church like this before, so I was very impressed when I saw it for the first time.
This church is a little bit farther away from the center of Mykonos Town than most other photo spots. However, it's still only about 5 minutes by foot, so it's really doable!
Mamalouka is one of the most popular spots in Mykonos for pictures, because of the beautiful colourful tree. It belongs to the best Instagram photo spots in Mykonos for sure! Furthermore, it's very centrally located, which is really convenient.
Moreover, it's also a great restaurant where you can have amazing food! Therefore, you shouldn't forget to check out the menu when you're taking pictures here. You can have dishes from the mediterranean and local cuisine at Mamalouka!
19. Next to Mamalouka
Another amazing spot is located next to Mamalouka! Therefore, you should really take these photos at the same time. This place is so cute and photogenic. I really love the colours here and the cute little white door!
Also good to know, just a few steps from this spot there's a little kiosk where you can buy food and drinks! Especially during a hot summer day that's really convenient. I would recommend having the salty peanuts!
20. HEEL Athens Lab
Heel Athens is an amazing place to take photos, because of its beautiful colours and flowers. Furthermore, I think it's amazing that you can stand on the little bench, so that you're next to the flowers!
If you're here, make sure to also check out HEEL Athens Lab from the inside. They sell clothes that are made of cotton that's organic and they focus on reusing and recycling stuff, which is amazing in my opinion!
21. Cute house with pink flowers
This house really looks like a fairy tale in my opinion! Therefore, it's definitely a great spot for photos. This is actually a secret photo spot, since not many people know about it!
You can either stand in front of the house or sit on the little bench. No matter what you do, I'm sure the photo will be amazing, because this place is just so pretty!
22. Pink and white clothing store
The last location, but for sure one of the best Instagram photo spots in Mykonos, is this lovely store! The store looks really cute with the pink door and windows. Futhermore, at the same time there are cute dresses outside! I love that so much and it's the reason why this is one of my favourite places to take photos. Furthermore, there's also a very beautiful pink tree in the background, making this spot even more colourful!
If you're taking photos here, don't forget to also have a look at the dresses inside. Maybe you'll find your new favourite dress here, because I can promise you, the dresses the shop sells are adorable!
If you're going to Mykonos, I'm sure you will have an amazing time! It's such a lovely island with many beautiful spots and fun things to do.
