Mykonos is one of the most expensive of all the Greek Islands, and a trendy destination for many gay travellers and fashionistas, so it's not surprising that Mykonos offers a wide variety of shopping, from supermarkets and shopping centres to smaller boutiques and local markets. There is something for everyone, but beware: the price tag can be high! Matogianni Street is the main strip and a good place to start browsing. With fantastic art galleries, Byzantine jewellery stores and clothing stores, such as Soho-Soho, a lot of the shopping is geared towards cruise ship day-travellers. Other popular buys include hand-woven scarves, rugs, and even locally made sandals. Paros offers little in the way of shopping in comparison to Mykonos Town but head for the old town behind the harbour for some hidden treasures, such as beautiful jewellery and art. Many of the visitors to Mykonos put a high premium on good shopping and trendy souvenirs so nobody should be disappointed in Mykonos from this perspective; the island has not faltered yet as a refuge for the young, beautiful and stylish (and there is plenty of fun kitsch on offer too!).
