TRAVEL ALBUM: BEAUTIFUL MYKONOS IN PICTURES
Mykonos stole my heart when I first visited the beautiful island in Greece with a friend almost ten years ago, and needless to say it still has my heart. I recently sailed from Santorini to Mykonos on an eight-day tour with G Adventures, and as Mykonos was the last stop, I was very excited to spend a couple of days on terra firma. Part of the Cyclades island group in the deep blue Aegean Sea, Mykonos is well known as one of the more popular and utterly glamourous Greek isles – especially for its postcard perfect beaches and party atmosphere.
If you’re looking for the beautiful jet set crowd, Psarou Beach and Super Paradise is where it’s at. Think Sandside bars, luxurious day beds, the best dj’s in the world and the most gorgeous people swimming in the Aegean Sea between cocktails; it really is one of the most fun and lavish islands on the Cyclades.
If you’re looking for world class food, incredible shopping and the best sunset views, the chora of Mykonos is the best place to be on the whole island. Do be mindful, the island gets very busy during the summer months with sometimes up to five cruise ships docking into port each day, so hire a quad with reverse capabilities for about 30 Euro a day, and set out early each day.
Anyway, I’ve got loads of tips and advice in this blog post for anyone thinking of visiting Mykonos, including where to get the best ice cream and gyros – of course! So I hope you enjoy this travel album, beautiful Mykonos in pictures.
First stop in Mykonos? The famous oceanfront windmills. They get very very busy at sunset so do what we did, avoid the crowds and be there on sunrise.
