Mykonos underwater, Greece

This post is my second post on Mykonos as I had to split it into 2 because I had way too many images! These photos are the ones taken in Mykonos underwater, by my boyfriend Sam Gill using an underwater camera. If you would like to see more of his photos I will link his underwater Instagram account here.

Beginner snorkeller

Mykonos for me being a novice snorkeller/diver was great. The sea was clear and warm, it was also very salty making it easy to just float around. However, for my boyfriend Sam (a more experienced diver/snorkeller) found it a bit boring as he has dived in places like Egypt, which is suppose to be fantastic!

How to attract fish

We used the left over couscous from our meals to feed the fish and they loved it! We got to get up so close and personal with them. I couldn’t tell you the different types of fish but there were a lot, maybe not so

colourful as you would like to see but great none the less. I did however spot a moor eel which freaked me out a bit but, he was very deep under the water on the sea bed and made no scary moves! Sam however, loved it!


As well as exploring under the water in Mykonos we also hires paddle boards and lounged around in a watermelon rubber ring. Oh the life.

If anyone is interested, I have linked the underwater camera that we use and the case to add extra protection.


If you haven’t already I would recommend reading my Mykonos blog post and also my post on Santorini.

I hope you enjoyed this extra snippet of Mykonos and I will link my Mykonos YouTube travel diary which has a few more clips of us snorkelling and the type of marine life you can expect to see in Greece.

Lots of love, Melissa x
