This part of Mykonos Town is called the Little Venice and you can see why!
Mykonos – 2016
I don’t like fishing, I find it very boring and I am not really into the whole ‘killing a fish’ part. HOWEVER, I do envy the relaxed, almost meditative state, people who like fishing get into. There is something about simply waiting for something to happen in a very calm and scenic environment.
Mykonos – 2016
If you are planning a trip to the Cyclades this post will definitely help you!
We spent 2 weeks island hopping in Greece and I gathered below all my advice, addresses and recommendations for a memorable trip!
Horse ride along Mykonos reservoir and Fokos beach.
Rent a car for a road trip and go to Armenistis Lighthouse, Agios Sostis beach and end the day in Paradise beach for a cocktail or two!
The Grace Hotel Mykonos, it is 10 minutes outside of Mykonos town and the place and staff are amazing.
Grab lunch at Kiki’s Taverna for delicious authentic greek food.
Visit all the little shops of Naousa.
Sit at a terrace for a cafe frappe in Parikia.
Drive to the mountains of Paros and stop in Lefkes.
We stayed at the Saint Andrea Seaside Resort. It was absolutely fine and the swimming pool area is very pleasant, but the rooms are nothing special.
Enjoy a meal at Soso, one of the best restaurants in Paros. It is also amazing value for money!
Have dinner and a glass of wine with the best sunset views at Glafkos Taverna.
Hike to Oia from Imerovigli for the most beautiful views of the Caldera.
Climb Skaros Rock to see some traces of the ancient Santorini and find Ekklisia Theoskepasti church.
Rent a quad and go on a road trip. Visit the ancient site of Akrotiri. Lie down on the red sand of the Red Beach and the yellow sand of Vlychada Beach. Climb to the heights of Santorini and explore Pyrgos.
If you like sailing go on a sunset cruise for first row views of the sunset on the Caldera.
Celebrate your stay in Santorini with a wine tasting at Santo Wines.
The Grace Hotel Santorini, you won’t be disappointed! The rooms are cosy, the views breathtaking and it is the most Instagram and Pinterest friendly place you will ever stay at!
I don’t have a ‘spectacular’ restaurant recommendation in Santorini, but no matter where you eat, make sure to try the 3 traditional dishes of the island.
Here you go, if you check all the items on this list, you are in for a real treat!
