One of the places that has been on my bucket list is the beautiful island of Mykonos, one of the Greek islands, in the Cyclades group in the Aegean Sea. Mykonos is world famous for it's party scene, beautiful beaches, white washed homes and cobblestone alleys. Our days were spent exploring Mykonos (beaches and towns) and our evenings were spent exploring the small cobbled alleys of Mykonos town and exploring the many restaurants and bars.
Where to Stay
We stayed at a luxury hotel the Mykonos Theoxenia Hotel and I would highly recommend it! The room was really very comfortable and was walking distance to Mykonos town - the hotel is right next to the famous windmills. The breakfast each morning was also buffet style and was soo good with many food choices.
Little Venice (Mykonos Town)
Little Venice is famous for where the restaurants meet the sea. It is one of the most photographed landmarks on Mykonos. Little Venice, in my opinion, is the best place on the island to shop, dine and grab cocktails. You can buy anything in Mykonos Town. My favorite things to shop for include jewelery, hand-made greek sandals, straw bags, resort wear, and linen shirts for my husband!
In terms of places to dine one of our favorite places to eat is Niko's Taverna. I also loved that there were many places open late night which include Jimmy's and Souvlaki Story. For cocktails Caprice is one of those perfect places to let loose and have fun. Some other of my favorite bars include Semeli, ARGO and BAOS.
The beautiful cobblestone alleys and bougainvillea trees are un-real! One of my favorite things to do was to walk in Mykonos town and get lost in the alleys. Make sure to stop and look up you will always find pops of color from the famous bougainvillea trees!
Watch the Sunset
The sunsets are so beautiful in Mykonos. One of the evenings we sat on the beautiful patio area of our hotel and watched the sun go down.
We rented an ATV for the day which was dropped off at our hotel (approx $60 euros for the day) and we headed to Elia and Paradise beach. Paragos is another well known beach. Elia beach is a little bit on the quiet side while Paradise beach is a total party scene. The water was some of the most clearest water I have ever laid my eyes on.
Mykonos was so memroable and beautiful. I would highly recommend it to everyone and hope to go back one day!
