GREEK ISLAND TRAVEL GUIDE: MYKONOS


Simple and short description about Mykonos, it is famous for its cobblestones and Little Venice. It is also apparently the party town according to the locals there. Mykonos attracts famous DJs year in year out during summer for special features in the clubs.


Due to the off-peak season, Mykonos was much quieter without much action going on at night.



HOW TO GET THERE?

From Santorini, we took a ferry (Seajet) which journey took less than two hours. Similarly, food and beverage are available on the ferry for purchase.


The ride and service were pretty much the same as Minoan Line so I think there is no need to repeat again.


STAY: BOHEME MYKONOS HOTEL REVIEW

Immediately after disembarkation, we could easily spot the driver holding paper with our names on it. We were picked up in this cool Jeep Wrangler.


The hotel is located just approximately 10 minutes by car from the port. It is about 5 minutes walking distance to the town. So the location is perfect.

ATTRACTIONS


BONI WINDMILL

Two of the windmills were under renovation or beautification process. So we couldn't really have nice photos there. You will be able to find the windmills without much effort because they are just stepping away from Little Venice.



MYKONOS TOWN/ VILLAGE

Needless to say, the village is famous for cobblestones road. Although there are many lanes and they look the same, it is pretty hard to get lost here because the lanes just connect to each other. So don't be concerned, just keep your GPS and walk anywhere the feeling tells you.


LITTLE VENICE

One part worthwhile to highlight here is the seaside path with Little Venice as background. You need a little bit of courage to walk on the path or take photos there because waves would constantly be slamming the path so you need to time yourself perfectly in between the angry waves.



FOOD IN MYKONOS

It is very easy to find food in town. But we saw Souvlaki Corner was filled with people during the few times we passed by. Perhaps worth a try?


In my opinion, I really liked Trio Bambini which is a dessert cafe. So probably you can give it a go if you are a sweet tooth.


We did not really try the main dishes in town as we had our meals in Boheme Mykonos. I thought the hotel really served delicious food, I mean where else can you find homemade ketchup? From homemade ketchup, you can see how passionate and dedicated are those chefs in the kitchen.
