Mykonos Greece holidays; With its beautiful winding streets and picturesque port, Mykonos town is for me absolute wanderlust within Europe. The flair of the charming old town, the nightlife and the diverse beaches with crystal clear water have particularly impressed me. The island of Mykonos is perfect for Mykonos beach lovers, night owls and those interested in culture.
An island for little explorers
Although the choice of attractions is low, the island has
much to offer. The landmark of the island, e.g. are the five old windmills
Katao Mili, which are found directly in Mykonos Greece holidays. Little
Venice, which is only two minutes away from the windmills, should not be missed
on an island visit.
For culture lovers worth a half-day trip to the neighboring
island of Delos. Especially for the island is an archaeological
site with some 3000-year-old ruins, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Those who want to discover and experience the island,
preferably travel by rental car. So you can explore the different and diverse
beaches well and other destinations on the island are within easy reach. If you
do not want to drive, you can easily take the bus as an alternative or discover
the beaches with a hop-on hop-off boat. A small detour to the northern tip of
the island to Cape Armenistis should not be missing on the travel
agenda. Here is the lighthouse of the same name Armenistis, from where the view
is particularly good to Tinos, Andros and Syros can
Where To Stay In Mykonos
A little tip from me at this point. Car hire travelers who
like me have booked a hotel in Mykonos town should not underestimate the
narrow streets. I was always very happy when no oncoming traffic came because
this was very narrow sometimes. Alternatively to the rental car, there are also
quads and Vespas.
As a starting point for my holiday experiences, I have
booked a room in the Mykonos View Hotel. About 8 minutes on foot
from the old town, the hotel towers on a hill. The level of the situation
should not be underestimated. That one is good on foot should be a prerequisite
to master the stairs well. The view from the restaurant and the pool
Already at breakfast, I have the great luck to enjoy the
view of the sea and I have the best overview of which ship has anchored in the
harbor today. In the evening, the breathtaking sunset from the pool terrace
should not be missed.
Also culinary, the island has much to offer. A wide variety
of restaurants can be found in Mykonos Greece holidays, either directly
on the harbor or in the winding streets. The restaurant prices are in the city
rather lifted, like everything in Mykonos. If you want something cheaper food
should do this outside.
Also above Mykonos town, many restaurants are
located along the main road. Here we discovered the Oregano Cook & Grill
for us. A very authentic tavern, because here not only tourists come in, but
also Greeks, who make up a large part of the guests.
From Greek salad to mezze to gyros and souvlaki, here
you can get all the Greek specialties you can imagine at very reasonable
prices. (Gyros for example 10 EUR)
Cozy bars with great views are located in little Venice in
the “Kastro Viertel”, where you can watch the beautiful sunset in the
evening during a cocktail. My favorite bars were Caprice and Baos. Dream
dancers make the night here to the day and enjoy the best view of the sea. But
beware, if there is a high tide your feet may get wet on the way there. If you
want to enter with dry feet, you are welcome to take the back entrance.
