Mykonos, Greece

This was my second visit to Mykonos. I previously spent 2 memorable nights on this Greek island in 2011 with the Busabout Bandits. That was an awesome, memorable trip. I did not get a chance to go to the other side of the island where the resorts are located on this trip (I previously stayed at Paradise Beach Resort). Instead I hanged around town (Chora) and Little Venice, a nice place with shops and restaurants alongside the beach.  Mykonos offers photographers with post-card like pictures of blue and white homes, on narrow white pebbled streets, with a number of windmills and churches scattered throughout. Picture perfect! Tours are offered to the nearby ruins on Delos Island.

There are a few swimming spots near the port, but the best beaches are on the other side of the island (like Paradise Beach). There is also a little beach on the other side of the port (to the left when you exit the ships’, but it looked very empty).

It rained earlier in the day and I heard some folk who returned from town saying that the streets become streams, and it’s a little hard to navigate on foot if you are using an umbrella.

There are also a number of travel agents in Chora selling ferry and flying catamaran tickets to various Greek ports in case you want to book your own trips at your leisure.

    Excellent Review Master Zaid… I too was a busabout bandit once and enjoyed a memorable unforgettable trip to Mykonos with great crew! Just a little jealous of this one fella I happened to travel there with, who is back once more, enjoying the glorious sunshine…
