Mykonos or Crete or Both?

by travelgirlga

We have a limited amount of time and would like to spend two nights in Santorini. Anyone have any opinion of Crete vs Mykonos? Perferences? Or would you suggest doing both? Thank you!

RE: Mykonos or Crete or Both?

I vote for Crete. There's a lot to see and do there.

Mykonos has become an overpriced, overdeveloped, overadvertised sort of charter flight-group tour-honeymooner's delight fantasy destination island trading off its reputation as the Jet-Setter's island paradise, which it hasn't been since the early '70's.

You'll spend less and get more for your money on Crete.

Mykonos vs. Crete

by Confucius

With a limited amount of time, you might want to be more specific with regard to destinations on Crete.
I visited Mykonos for about 5 hours as part of a Greek Islands cruise and thought it was sufficient to see all of the sights.
If you only have one or two extra days, then Mykonos might be a better choice.
With 3 days or more to spare, then I would vote for Crete.

Santorini is a very special island, different from any other greek island because of the volcanic scenery. It's different from Myconos and certainly different from Crete.

You don't mention what's the amount of time you intend to spend in Crete or Myconos.

Crete is a big island which you will see better if you have some more time. I'd say 15days is enough to get an idea of the whole island.

Myconos on the other hand, in my opinion, is a place to be for a short period of time or else you get bored. It's also close to Santorini. If I had something like 5 hours to 3 days I would go to Myconos and I would choose Crete as a destination for when I could spend more time.

Keep in mind though that Myconos is always overcrowded during August so everything is rather expensive and you will have to wait for long for a table in "Little Venice" - in no case a place to relax. But the crowdy white streets of the town seem to somehow have an appeal for some.

Whatever your choice I wish you have a nice holiday in Greece.

Thank you for the feedback! We will have 2 or 3 days in Santorini and 1 or 2 days for both Mykonos and Crete... Based on your recommendation, I am thinking 2 nites in Santorini and perhaps 2 nights in Mykonos. We will be there at the beginning of September, so things should start slowing a bit... Thank you!

"Things" will NOT be slowing down on Mykonos at the beginning of September. Prepare yourself for a crush of people.

RE: Mykonos or Crete or Both?

That's a VERY short time to see two islands. I highly recommend that you spend your entire trip on Santorini. Otherwise you won't even have enough time to see that one island in its entirety. You'll also be so rushed that it will go by in a blur.

Most of the north coast of Crete is terribly overcrowded and touristy. You really have to go to the south coast to get away from the package tourist areas, so it's really not worth going there unless you have a lot more time. You could easily spend an entire month on Crete, and I'm not exagerating.

Don't be fooled!

by Kenward about Blue Ginger

This is reputed to be a great place to dine. Normally you get what you pay for...not so at this place, the prices are extremely expensive and the service is EXTREMELY poor. We arrived at 10pm and we weren't served our main course until 1:00am. Although we repeatedly inquired about the delay, all we got were a lots of giggles and grins from the staff. We even spoke to the owner, who showed absolutely no concern and in fact he only offered an apology for the delay after we insisted that he did so...he didn't even give us a discount on our meal (which came up to over 300.00 euros for 3 persons)...

The Town of Hora (Mykonos Town)

by Maryimelda

This is the most amazing place, it almost defies description. A maze of little alleyways lined with boutiques, jewellers, souvenir shops, cafes etc.etc.etc. There is fascination at every turn. I couldn't believe it and nor will you when you go. You will definitely get lost, but don't panic, just keep walking and turning corners and eventually you will find yourself in a familiar spot.

Delos

by zindara

"Delos"

Delos is an uninhabited island full of ancient ruins of temples, market, theater, houses, etc.
It was considered a sacred place and as Artemis and Apolo were born here, it was a place were nobody could be born or die. Pregnant women were quickly shipped off to neighboring islands as was anyone who became ill.

"Sights in the island"

The Temple of Apollo is certainly the most important monument, since Delos has been widely acknowledged to the ancient world because of that Temple. It covers a large area close to the ancient port and around it there are series of smaller Temples (of the Delians and the Athenians), altars and markets with shops.

"Museum"

The Museum is full of statues, artifacts and other exhibits from the excavations, mainly from the archaic and classical period. Most exhibits are very impressive and it is definitely worth visiting. The visit to the museum can also be seen as a break from the typical walk around the ancient ruins scattered on the island.

"Sacred Lake"

The Sacred Lake district is next to the area of the Temple of Apollo and this is where you will find the road of the Lions. The Sacred Lake is dried due to health reasons but you will manage to identify it due to the palm trees that exist on the side. Further down you will series of houses (villas), each one with its fresh water well under the floor. At the far end of the Sacred Lake district you will see the Gymnasium and the Stadium.

"Theater, houses, mosaics..."

On the other side you will visit the Theater district which, apart from the Theater, has a large number of houses (villas) with magnificent mosaics and some frescos. Especially the House of Dionysos, the House of Triena and the House of Dolphins, named by the respective mosaic themes.

"Kynthos hill"

The area of Kynthos hill is full of temples and as you move on towards the top of the hill you get a better view of the island and the extent of the ancient city of Delos. In that area you will find the temples of Isis (probably the best preserved), Hera, Zeus and Hercules. You will also find a temple dedicated to Syrian gods, others to Egyptian gods and one to gods from Samothrace (Greek island in the NE Aegean).

This area gives a nice overview of the religious mix of ancient times and the various influences that Delos had over the centuries. The choice of Delos as the religious center for so many different religions of the Eastern Mediterranean is another proof of the island sacred character.

"Kynthos hill"

On top of Kynthos hill, apart from the excellent view, you will find the Temple of Zeus and Athena.
