Ornos village is located in the southwestern part of the island, just a couple of kilometers away from Mykonos Town. It used to be a quiet fishing village, but slowly it has developed into a modern tourist resort. There are plenty of accommodation places, hotels, villas and apartments in Ornos. Near the beach you will also find many tavernas, cafés, bars and restaurants. Ornos is ideal for family vacations and peaceful holidays. It is a nice and quiet alternative to the noisier Mykonos Town nearby. Ornos has everything a tourist needs - plenty of shops, bakeries, grocery stores and mini-markets, as well as pharmacies and butcher shops.
Ornos has a pleasant weather all year long. Temperatures in the summer are often in the mid-30s C, while winters are mild and temperatures almost never drop below 15 C. No matter which time of the year you plan to visit Ornos, you are almost always guaranteed to have a good weather.
The beach in Ornos is very long and sandy. There is plenty of space for tourists, so it never feels overcrowded. The beach is equipped with many facilities, and there are sunbeds and umbrellas for hire. Waters are shallow which makes this beach ideal for families with small children. There are also plenty of opportunities for water sports on the beach. Good thing about this beach is that is well protected from the sometimes strong northern winds in the summer.
At one end of the sheltered bay in Ornos you will find a relatively small, but very nice fishing harbor. This is the place where yachts and boats come and go, and there are water-taxis that can take you to explore the nearby beaches. Ornos can serve as a very good base for exploring the southern part of the island.
Ornos has a quick and easy access to Mykonos Town. You can take a long walk, or go with one of the many buses that frequently go to Mykonos Town. For those interested to explore the wider region, there are regular boat excursions that go to other beaches on the island and to the popular places of Agrari, Psarou, Elia, Rhenia and Delos. Delos is a UNESCO protected site, where you can see many archeological ruins, statues and temples dating back from ancient times.
Ornos village is relatively small and besides the local tavernas and bars there are not many historical or other attractive things to see. However, its ideal location and close proximity to the bustling Mykonos Town means that you can reach the capital in just five minutes bus drive. There you can visit the old district and admire Little Venice or the famous windmills. Mykonos Town also has plenty of churches, monasteries, museums and souvenir shops.
All in all, Ornos is great for families and those that want to spend a relaxing vacation. It is also good for those tourists that want to be close to the main action on the island, but not directly in it. Crystal-clear blue waters, long sandy beach and plenty of nice tavernas are the main highlights of this village.
