Mykonos was undoubtedly the highlight of my 3 stop Greece trip. It had everything that makes me happy – gorgeous beaches, fun day parties, amazing food, adventurous roadways, friendly people, authentic touches. I was in heaven! My hubby and I crammed so much in during our 4 day stay, that it’s hard to summarize everything without writing a novel, so this will be a more photo-centric post. But first, a few key tips:
- Rent a car! We were able to beach hop on our own time and felt safer than the many people we saw on ATV’s. Maybe I’m less adventurous in my 30’s, but nothing seemed appealing about riding an ATV around a winding road with cars zooming past. Taxi’s are scarce and often leave people waiting for awhile. Just make sure that you have someone who is open to driving on rather narrow and often unmarked roads. In my case, my island Bajan hubby was the perfect person for this job (thanks babe! ;-)).
- Splurge on a fun day beach party. This is what Mykonos is all about! I loved Kalua and Alemagou, but there are many to choose from.
- It’s not necessary to find a super expensive hotel. You spend so much time out of your room, that simple and modest accommodations are perfectly fine. I loved Villa Margarita which was a ~15 min walk to Mykonos Town with friendly hosts and a super affordable price. Oh, and a great breakfast selection!
Here are some of my favorite pics/places:
Our room at Villa Margarita
Quadruple fisting at Scorpios Sneaky Sundays – awesome party!
Gorgeous beach next to Kalua Mykonos. This was my favorite.
Alemagou was also a great place to spend the day. But it was far more remote and chill.
I had an amazing birthday dinner at Caprice.
There was an unbelievable sunset view from 180 Mykonos.
For some culture, visit the village of Ano Mera.
