The old port is the center of Mykonos town now mainly occupied with bars and restaurants facing the sea, and boutiques, jewelry stores and galleries in the alleys behind.
They have one in common - super expensive and overpriced.
As our local car renter told us while driving us to the new port upon returning our car, this island was made super expensive on purpose and differs from all others in Greece in that way.
Walking the old port is picturesque, nice and fun but I wouldn't suggest sitting here and dining, unless you like making a fool of yourself with astronomic prices.

We thought nothing could top Oia on Santorini as “One Big Tourist Trap” but the Old Port area of Mykonos did it.

Yes, it is picturesque, but it is surrounded by over priced souvenir shops and cafes. We visited five islands and Athens and often saw the same T-Shirts and dresses as those offered here. The only difference was they were 20% to 25% more expensive in the shops around the port.

A collection of overpriced restaurants , souvenir shops, jewelry shops and clothing amidst crowds of tourists with the mistaken idea that this is Greece. If you are in the market for fridge magnets, pottery(made in China) or clothing that you will never put on again once you leave then this is the Island for you. The only thing that recommenders it is the airport which allows you to skip Athens for some flights to Europe. If you want real Greek culture, food and people go to Crete, Ikaria, Samos or even Rhodes.

The area of old port is on the shore of town, touching the sea. You can walk from here through the pedestrian alleys to all Mykonos town's areas. Best time to be here is sunset, where you can get a good view from the famous Windmills.

There are plenty of restaurants and cafes, as well as ice cream and crepe stores, but don't expect to find traditional stores here, you have to pass the port area, and get to the main area of town for that.

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.

We somehow had the idea that Mykonos would be a wonderful stop on our tour of Greece. In fact, it was our least favorite. The town is full of overpriced stores and restaurants and lots of souvenirs made in China. It is a picturesque walk but that is it. Do check out the windmills for a photo op and then head off to another island to see Greece.

One of many good areas in town for food, drinks, and great views. The area has plenty of options for eating, along with the usual matire d trying to talk folks into the restaurant. A good place for a stroll with plenty of great people watching.

The old port is a small town with narrow streets and tourist shops. There also is a parking lot directly behind the windmills. It is great for a walk in the late afternoon to watch the sunset and the estuary with the ships offshore.
 Worth a visit when you are in Mykonos.

A busy port and interesting to watch the "coming and going" On the day we were there, there were also quite a few expensive yachts moored. This part of the port is mainly used by the boats on day trips and, when the wind is blowing, it can get quite rough, even within the protective walls. Our day trip boat from Paros rocked about quite a bit both when we arrived and also when we departed. It is not too far a walk from the narrow streets of Chora (as Mykonos town is known by locals), Little Venice and the Flour Mills of Mykonos Town.

This is a good area when visitig Mykonos to see some sites or enjoy dining and shopping. I would advise that one wear comfortable shoes because you will be walking on pavers, gravel, and concrete. It can be windy at times and the ground is slippery if wet and rainy.
