Mykonos Greek Island, Greece (6/8-13/2009)
Probably our favorite Greek Island so far - been to 8 now.
We were in Mykonos 21 years ago on our honeymoon Greek Island cruise. Like us, a lot has changed in two decades. Instead of one taverna on a beautiful sandy beach, it is now lined with tavernas and beach lounge chairs lined up next to each other.
Still, Mykonos is beautiful with many fine beaches. We had great fun staying at Platys Gialos Beach. Mykonos Town (Chora) is a delight of labyrinth-like cobblestone streets with white houses, wonderful Greek restaurants (tavernas), upscale shops, and slights at every corner.
A visit to Mykonos' waterfront Little Venice quarter, with it's centuries-old windmills and tavernas, is a must.
We hiked over hills to get to world famous Paradise Beach where at 4pm the disco music starts and by 6pm there is dancing on the tables… wild! (see photo). Bars line the sandy beach at Paradise Beach.
We had dinner on the beach at Greek Night that included live Greek music and dancers who we threw plates at… strange but everyone got into it with lots of fun and laughter.
We also walked down our hill to the upscale Psarou Beach that charges 30 euro ($42) for a couple of lounge chairs (we stayed in the cheap seats for 12 euro). On a Greek fishing boat we traveled to Eila and Agrari beaches – absolutely beautiful!
