Of all the places I visited in Greece, Mykonos was by far my favorite.
White houses are in abundance, and each area is as picturesque as Santorini. There is actually a law in Mykonos that any new houses must be white or may be stone as long as the stone comes naturally from the island. Walking through the town, I became happily lost along the cobbled streets, stopping to roam through shops ranging from high-end to the budget-friendly. I found a very pretty red silk shirt at a store there! 70 euros, but shop owners are definitely willing to haggle a bit with you. Don’t be afraid to ask for a lower price.
After strolling through the town, I found myself at the Windmills! I could only stop and admire from a distance because I had to grab a ride to my next stop… the beach!!
Transportation along Mykonos can prove difficult. The roads are winding and narrow, and there are only 10 taxis in the entire city!! The main part of Mykonos is pedestrian, but the rural area has a small road. I saw lots of people of four wheelers as a way to get from one place to another.
The beach I recommend is Elia Beach, which is much quieter and secluded. I’ve heard it’s a nudist beach, but I didn’t see anyone walking around in their birthday suit. You can rent chairs for 30 euros, and there are plenty of restaurants to visit when you need a reprieve from the sun. There is also an opportunity there for water sports like tubing and jet skiing! It looked fun, but I just wanted to soak up the sun. Honestly, it might be one of the best beaches I’ve ever visited. Just be warned – the sand there isn’t soft sand; it’s mostly little stones until you go about waist deep into the water.
The sun, the town, and the cooling breeze made Mykonos my favorite island, and will definitely stay at the top of my list of places to visit again. It’s not hard be at bliss at Mykonos.
