The bakery of Yioras
The building dates back to the 17th century. It is the oldest bakery that is still in operation on Mykonos today. It was named after its old owner and father of its current owner, Mr. Nikos Vamvakouris. “Yioras” was the nickname of the baker, because he was too tall. The rustic bread and the rusks (twice-baked bread pieces), the ‘kouloures’ (Easter bread coils) and the ‘Christopsoma’ (Christmas bread) are still baked in the same old wood oven that operates on brushwood. The bakery is located on Ignatios Mpasioulas Street.
The rocky islet of Agios Georgios
. It is located west of Chora, near the Cape of Diakoftis. It was named after the chapel of Agios Georgios. It is also called the island of Baos after the Mykonian pirate Georgios Baos, who took part in the Orlov Revolt.
The rocky islets of Htapodia (the Mykonians call them Stapodia) are located about 5 miles southeast of the island. Strong winds usually blow over them and access to them is difficult. Seals visit Htapodia, as well. The seabed around the surrounding reefs is impressive. Rineia is another islet near Mykonos that is worth visiting.
Tragonisi and Htapodia
Tragonisi (or Dragonisi) is about one mile off the eastern coast of Mykonos (3 miles away from the bay of Kalafatis). There is a cove to the northeast where boats can moor when no wind blows. There is also an impressive cave on that side of Tragonisi through which small boats or inflatables can pass when the sea is calm. There are other smaller caves on Tragonisi, as well, that are visited by Mediterranean monk seals (Monachus monachus).
