Mykonos, Platis Gialos, Greece
This post is all about our time in Mykonos! We travelled from Naples straight to Mykonos where we spent 5 nights. We then travelled to Santorini for a few days and then back to Mykonos again. So, therefore this post is a collection of photos from our 2 separate trips to Mykonos.
Where to stay in Mykonos
Mykonos is such a beautiful Greek island with lovely beaches and a picture perfect, very instagramable town. For the best beaches I would recommend staying on the south of the island. As well as there being lots of local amenities it is also sheltered from the northerly wind which can sometimes be quite cold. The Greek islands are known for being windy, warm wind though.
We stayed on Platis Gialos beach for most of the duration of our trip as it was the closet beach to our accommodation. We stayed in 2 separate places on our 2 trips which we booked via booking.com. Both were lovely, I will leave links to them both, Villa Nireas and Pelagos Studios which looks like it now has a pool!
What to do in Platis Gialos
Where we were staying and it had lots of restaurants, a supermarket and water sports facilities. I went paddle boarding for the first time, which
was so much fun! The beach also contained a lot of sun loungers but, these were pricey at about 20 euros a day to rent. That’s unless it came free with your hotel which are’s did not. However, this was okay as we just used our towels and lay on the sand.
We took two trips to Mykonos town on our 2 different stays on the island and both times we went to Gioras Wood Medieval Bakery which had the most delicious Grecian bakes. I would highly recommend visiting here. Also, while in the town we met a Pelican which is apparently a local celebrity and spends a lot of his time having pictures taken with the tourists! However, the town is just lovely way to spend an afternoon, having a casual wander, looking in all of the shops and boutiques and taking some beautiful snaps.
Overall, Mykonos was such a nice, relaxing time of our month travels. Much needed after walking endlessly around many cities in Italy.
Lots of love, Melissa x
