It is not that spectacular but it is a place worth having a few drinks and take some pictures. It seems to me that while the title of Little Venice is a bit of a misnomer because it has no canals or bridges like in Venice, it is a scenic corner of town. However, it is a charming corner in Mykonos with a lot of magic. Just below the windmills, wealthy local shipping merchants built a row of picturesque houses with brightly painted wooden balconies on the sea along the bay. The embankment is lined with restaurants, cafes, and cocktail bars, crowded every night with tourists enjoying the sunset. It is picturesque to see the sea waves burst on the shore of the restaurants windows. You can take great pictures from here but if you are on a table that is too close to the edge strong waves could splash water on you. Having a drink or dinner right on the sea, watching the rocks in the background and watching the waves of the sea hit the restaurant window. Enjoy getting lost in Mykonos, through its streets, and reach that little corner, Little Venice, with pricey restaurants (prices are exorbitant) and windmills in the background.

Lovely area to stroll, dine, have a cocktail, or just people watch. In the evening there is an endless parade of those who are looking to see - or be seen. Anything goes from those that look like thy are on a photoshoot, to those who look like they just came off a hike or the beach. It can be a challenge to eat your dinner at your reserved sunset table when people are practically sitting in your lap as they lean in to get that perfect selfie with the sunset in the background. It can be a bit much at times. But the experience is definitely worth it.

Little Venice is an unusually designed part of MYKONOS that has the architecture of Venice and the sea slapping against the seawall creating a perfect setting for a splendid way to end the day.

The combination of the breeze and the sea slapping creates a rhythm that blends well with the cacophony of the people sitting and Milling Around that you don’t find in many places .

The Only thing that ruins the ambience is that unfortunately they still allow smoking and when the tables of four and six smoke frenetically it spoils the quality of air To the degree that it is unhealthy.

Visited to check out the hype. It’s a nice small cove and really a little taste of Venice with its small pathways; waterside dining and strange smells.

Found the restaurants / drinks to be quite overpriced vs other locations in Mykonos although understandable as it’s very touristy. The main bars don’t open until 630pm evening so worth bearing in mind but there were a few restaurants open in the day.

It’s also very close to the famous Mykonos windmills too which is around a 5 minute walk away.

Little Venice is a beautiful place next to the sea with the view of the windmills.
The problem is with all these cafe bars there which are really destroy the beauty of the place.
60 € per person to be there or 500 € for a table with a bottle.
They react like pimps and generally are rude.
Next to the bars there is a area which you can have the same view without those pimps.
If you want to see the view and not show your money, you can take a beer from a kiosk and take it easy there.

Perfect for lunch. Perfect for cocktails. And perfect for the sunset. There are spectacular views of the sunset from this location. Lots of bars along this strip. We recommend Scarpa, one of the only few that make their cocktails with the correct level of alcohol. Superb music. It is buzzy and lively along here. Very touristy but actually not tacky. The water constantly smashes on the rocks and occasionally wets walkers as they pass through. It is the perfect place for sunset and cocktails. Enjoy.

Very small and very cramped. The ocean comes right up to the path and you can even get some splashing from the waves. Confusing on setup when coming from the windmills, and you have to walk awkwardly through restaurant on that side to get back into town. Go take a picture and leave. Unless a restaurant catches your eye

A beautiful place for sunset and drinks. In the evening many bars with dance music. Everything is a little bit expensive but you're at 'little Venice' and this view is unique !! Friendly staff in all the different places we went. Many tourists of course, so were we :-)

Did remind me of our Venice trip.

It could get crowded at certain time so if you want to take great photos…try avoid rush hours (happy hours, dinners are usually crowded hours).

There’s great view of windmills from here as well.

Personally I hate such comparisons and giving nicknames of some famous world city or landmark.
This part of Mykonos town has several houses hanging above the sea and that's the only similarity to Venice. Moreover the houses are sea facing, not on canals, there are no bridges nor gondolas or even boats.
But, that probably sounded like a good marketing idea to promote this, undoubtedly picturesque part of Mykonos town, so you will find here the most expensive bars and restaurants facing the sea, as well likewise shops and galleries on the opposite inland side.
You can admire this beautiful view for free from the benches at a small beach nearby or from the windmills with your purchased drink from any kiosk around.
