It sits on your nose and wraps around your ears!
I practically don't have to mention it, but bring your sunglasses, and bring a cheap pair and a good pair! The good pair should be worn walking around town, lying on the beach, while shopping, on Delos...The cheap pair should be worn when doing wiler things like jet skiing. I've only owned one "good" pair of sunglasses and they are now sitting at the bottom of the Aegean Sea, because they dropped into the sea while I was jetskiing. So do yourself a favor, not one pair of sunglasses, but two!
Greek food in its best from every aspect
This restaurant is the second branch of a well known athenian fish taverna ...its recently opened just below the windmills , next to the other well known greek restaurant sea satin. Potato salad with sundried tomatoes, excellent fresh grilled fish, very good wine list , try a good greek wine . Minimal decoration and good modern greek music and descret lights , open windows to the sea in a highpoint of the town
Little Venice is also known as Alefkandra. The buildings here were built right on the water and have balconies overlooking the sea. It is thought that they were built this way during the time of pirates so that goods could be quickly loaded and unloaded. Now when you visit this area of Hora, you will find many very nice restaurants, right by the water. You can have a lovely dinner at one of them ,sit back ,relax and watch the sunset!
Paradaise Beach is the place you will see in Wild on E!
People come here not only for the beach but for the parties. It is completely pack in summer time when and DJ's from all over the globe come.
I met some nice people, the atmosphere is very chilled, and nothing beats dancing next to the ocean.
Beaches, white and ruins
Being nearly the most touristic island of Greece and a rather spoiled place, I tough Mykonos would be a place to really avoid. We arrived there in high (though not peak) season, without pre-booking, in Easter. The first tries were useless, everything was full, it was half raining and we were tired after the ferry... I was beginning to hate Mykonos!
But suddenly we entered in a travel agency where they found an appartment for us in the capital, the sun appeared, and we saw our first Mykonos sunset!
Things changed, we rented a moped to see the island, visited some not-so-crowded beaches, and after 3 days there I must admit it was a good experience. I wouldn't return, as there are Greek Islands I appreciate much more, but Mykonos can be all you expect from a Greek Island... except calm!!!
Another good reason to visit Mykonos is the close by island of Delos. Once a sacred island and an important aegean hub, this island full of ruins really deserves a half day trip from Mykonos, reserve some time for it!!
