Things to do in Mykonos


Things to do in Mykonos

Last month I went to Greece for a bloggers conference in Athens and since I was a Greek island virgin, I decided to tag on three days in Mykonos. Known by many as the other Ibiza. Because I went out of season, I found it in a pleasantly chilled state. Shops and eateries were ready to close for the winter and the number of tourists was decreasing. Just the way I like it.

Hit the beach


It was still warm enough to soak up some sunrays on the beach, so I took the local bus to Ornos Beach and Platis Gialos where I practically had the whole beach to myself. It was just me and the local street cats.

Wander around town


I got lost in the narrow, cobbled street among the bright white washed houses of Mykonos Town. Chased windmills and peeked into the little churches and chapels. Wandered along the stalls of the morning food market on the quay and watched the fishermen offload their catch.

Sundowners at Little Venice


I enjoyed the sunsets, overlooking the Med in a cafe in Little Venice while having a glass of wine or a lovely Greek meal. I had the most relaxing days in a long long time. Those three days were gone in no town and to be honest, I could've done with three more.

Vioma Organic Farm


I took another local bus to Enomera and visited Vioma Farm. It's an organic farm that makes its own wine. I enjoyed three of their delicious wines paired with some amazing breads, meats and cheeses.


Visit Delos

Hope on a ferry to the island of Delos and walk around the ancient ruins. It's one of the most important historical and archaeological sites in Greece and definitely worth a day trip.
