Not just skimpy outfits
Even in the very hot summer, while we were there we had some extremely windy days requiring cardigans and other long-sleeved clothing while wandering around town.
For a beach resort, people were actually dressed very smartly and trendily. Definitely not a scruffy t-shirt sort of place in the evenings - think more Dolce & Gabbana. Bring lots of sun-block obviously I don't use my film camera anymore so don't quite know how much film costs in Mykonos. But for information there were more than a couple of places in town where you could copy your digital photos onto a CD
A gauge for eating out...
We gauged the restaurants and taverns quality : price ratio on A) how the food looked that people were eating, B) the price of Greek salad, C) the price of tzedziki, and D) the average price of platters from the "From the Grill" section of the menu.
Tzedziki should not cost more than 3.50euros. We walked away plenty of times from places where Greek salad was over 5.50euros. Chicken, beef, and pork souvlakis that went over 8.50euros were not aceptable.
Also, many places charge a cover charge...steer clear of places charging 2.50 and up.
We got good meals at the following:
Madopa's (thanks to Jonathan at Hotel Zorzis)
Taverna d' Italiana (again, thanks to Jonathan)
Niko's Tavern (thanks to Lonely Planet)
Beaches of Mykonos
There are many beaches for all kinds of Beach lovers. Nudismis accepted on most of them and I have heard that the locals are very open minded to everything ! so, go there and have lots n lots of fun in the sun ;-)
In the picture u can only see a small beach in the town of Hora which is the main town of Mykonos Island. Most people stay in this town because its the largest and most of the nice hotels and hostel are here. so, if u do not want to go far away to any of the wonderful beaches then u can simply walk a few meters from your hotel and relax here.
This is a harbor area of the island. This is the spot where you most likely come to watch the sun set. It is set next to the windmills so you can't miss it.
There are a lot of restaurants, tavernas and night clubs.
A day out by the seashore
"By the Mykonos coast"
Just off the nice hotel where I stayed is a stretch of breathtaking pebbled beach view. It was so sunny that the sea and sky looked particularly blue. Here I am, soaking in the warm sunshine by the Adriatic.
"Unique sight of the Greek islands"
I'm not in the French Riviera yet, but I got that similar azur blue standing by the Greek seaside, watching the blue colours streching into the ocean beyond, blending with the blue sky.
"The blue ocean beyond"
There are lots of tour cruises in the harbour. Greek vessels are always unique.
