Fishing in Mykonos

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.

Best restaurants for the sunset in Mykonos

When in Mykonos, we had the chance to enjoy the sunset in town few times and  every time the views were excellent so I thought I would share our two favourite addresses with you!

For a view of the luxurious yachts and the sunset – Roca Cookery

For a taste of Mykonos glam head to Roca Cookery. The restaurant is just above the town’s harbour and you will enjoy the views of the glamorous yachts VIPs live on during their stay in Mykonos.

For a view of Mykonos town and the sunset – Sea Satin Market

Book a table by the sea front and you will be in for a treat.

I am sure there must be so many other nice places we haven’t tried! We are planning to use this as an excuse to visit Mykonos again soon!

Sunset in Mykonos

In photography, the golden hour is a period shortly after sunrise or before sunset during which daylight is redder and softer than when the Sun is higher in the sky.

Let me tell you, the golden hour in Mykonos is one of the best photo ops you will ever get!

Mykonos old port sunset

During the day, the town is crisp white and cold blue, at sunset the whites turn into blushes and the blues into soft lavenders shades.

Mykonos Town literally turns gold.

Walk around the town while trying to avoid the crowds of tourists (they have heard of the golden hour in Mykonos too!)

Take as many pictures as you possibly can.

Terrace in Mykonos

Find a spot on a terrace, order a glass of wine and let planet Earth do its thing.

The sun hitting the sea is such a beautiful sight that you may hear some emotional gasping and applause.
