About this spot
This is a lookout spot over the marina and famous harbour of Mykonos. It's incredibly beautiful during sunrise or sunset periods. I came here for sunrise since my itinerary didn't fit a sunset trip here.

It's incredibly beautiful and amazing views with pretty much all types of lenses: wide, normal, and tele.
Wide and normal; if you want to catch the harbour and also catch the bright red church as the foreground object if you go wide enough. Use a tele-lens to zoom onto the iconic windmills.

I took my ultra wide + travel zoom combo and it was more then enough!

I can be quite a chore to get to, so my advice is to go for sunrise shot since around 6am nobody will make your trip up the narrow winding roads difficult. Walking is of course always an option and it makes things somewhat easier to navigate. The little road after the carpark leads to the top of the church, meaning you can set up your tripod on a relative flat surface with no distractions and go wild.
