For our final stop on our Greek Honeymoon, we made our way to Mykonos. A perfect compliment to scenic Santorini and charming Folegandros, Mykonos is a “jet-setter” island full of lavish beach clubs, high end restaurants, designer shopping, and lots of beautiful people looking to have a good time.
We arrived into the new port in Mykonos via SeaJets from Folegandros. The ride took about 3.5 hours and was EXTREMELY choppy. The day we took the ferry was an extra windy day but I would not recommend this to someone who is prone to sea sickness or generally creeped out flailing around in a boat on large bodies of water. SeaJets are much smaller in size (and faster) compared to the larger lines such as BlueStar. So if you’d prefer a smoother ride over saving time, that would be your best option.
Most hotels will pick you up at the port. I would recommend setting up this service as the island is very busy and this promises a stress free experience.
We decided to stay just off of Platis Gialos beach. There is a bus station located right in Platis Gialos with easy access into Mykonos town and to all the beaches along the southern coast of the island: Agia Anna, Paraga, Paradise, Super Paradise, Elia, Kalo Livadi and Kalafati. This makes it a great location if you’re looking to explore most of the island without a car. Once we arrived at our hotel and settled in, we walked around and checked out the nearby beaches, hotels and restaurants. You can feel the energy of the island immediately, with lots of people and excitement all around. image credit ^^Psarou is one of the more upscale beaches with a “see and be seen” vibe and is home to the well known Nammos beach club and restaurant. There is never a shortage of yachts hanging out in the Psarou bay, or champagne bottles being popped at Nammos.
After getting ready, we took the bus up to Mykonos town (which only takes about 15 mins) and made our way to Little Venice. Continue Reading…
