Mykonos is a magical place. It’s laid back lifestyle and crystal clear waters will have you wishing you could stay forever the moment you step foot on the island. My Mykonos guide will show you how to make the most of one day on the island.When I arrived, I was greeted by beautiful weather and hopped into a cab to Platys Gialos beach from the port. Since it was still very early in the morning, my family and I arrived to a beach all to ourselves. I pulled up a lounge chair and just relaxed while taking in the sight of the blue Mediterranean Sea and the panorama of rocky terrain and hills surrounding me.
We noticed some boats nearby with captains just hanging out and we were able to have one of them take us around half of the island to get a better look. We climbed into the boat and the captain put on some Greek music while pointing out beaches and places we should visit if we had some time. I had mentioned that I wanted to take a dip in the Mediterranean so he anchored for a few minutes so that I could jump in. The guide did send me off with fair warning that I would be plunging into ice cold waters. He was right so my dip in the water didn’t last longer than a few minutes!
Back at Platys Gialos I ate a fantastic lunch of lobster and orzo, great company, and sweet loukomades served with vanilla ice cream. Loukoumades are Greek donuts that are deep-fried until golden then sprinkled with cinnamon and served with a sweet syrup.
We wrapped up our time in Mykonos with a visit to the Chora and saw the famous five Windmills and did a little bit of shopping in the area.
Mykonos is as picturesque as a post card and I can’t wait to return and vacation there again. Talk later – or as the Mykonians say, ta leme!
Do you love Mykonos as much as I do? I’d love to hear about your travels in Greece!
