Furthermore you are kindly informed that locally you will not be able to find shopping options apart from Nammos Village at Psarou beach which has boutiques of houses like Christian Dior, Gucci, Louis Vuiton etc. We would certainly recommend visiting Mykonos Town for a walk to explore both Windmills and also enjoy shopping. Moreover Matogianni street in Mykonos is a very popular street with plenty of shops.
