The Greece Diaries: Five Things to Do in Mykonos

A few months ago, I took a girls’ trip with my some of my best gals to Greece. Our second stop from Athens was Mykonos, and, of course, it was nothing short of magical. Here are five things you must do in this gorgeous town that will have you living all of your Mamma Mia dreams.

Get Lost Wandering the Winding Streets

The streets of the town are filled with precious stores and restaurants. You can spend hours looking at hand-crafted jewelry and clothing. No one is in a hurry, so spend time walking around with nowhere to go.

Also, eat a crepe. And gelato. Two words: Kinder Bueno.

Paradise Beach

Need I say more?! Drive about twenty minutes from the town center and find one of the most well-known beaches on the island. This area is recognized for its nightlife, but it is still tons of fun during the day. If you swim a few yards out, you can climb on top of rocks and appear to stand in the middle of the Aegean Sea.

Note: Bring water shoes. I repeat. Bring water shoes. The sand is pretty coarse, and if you intend on walking on the rocks without foot protection, you will be nursing a cut foot for the rest of the trip. Not that I’m speaking from experience or anything…

Eat at Remezzo Restaurant and Bar

The food is almost better than the view. Located right on the town’s coastline, the restaurant is a perfect spot to watch the sunset and see the stars clearly in the night sky.

The seafood was unreal, and the presentation and staff made this place well worth a stop for our trip.

 

Stay at Cavo Tagoo

Cavo. Tagoo. This hotel is the most stunning place I have ever stayed. Because we visited during the end of their tourism season, the staff was able to upgrade our room with a private pool on our balcony and a four-person jacuzzi inside.

Breakfast is insane. Four walls of pure goodness: Greek yogurt, fresh juices, and, of course, more pastries than I could name. I won’t stay any place else the next time I visit.

Climb to the Windmills 

These windmills are a historical part of the town. From the top, you can see all of Little Venice and the most gorgeous view of the water.

The windmills are iconic to the island, and they were one of the first things we saw coming into the port.

    […] first time this past fall. I was super excited about spending time on the beach (see Mykonos post here), but Athens seemed like a perfect overnight stop-over. I mean, when do you get the chance to stay […]
