Hi everyone! If you follow me on Instagram, you know I recently got back from the most amazing trip with my boyfriend to Greece! I shared all the details surrounding our experience in Athens in THIS blog post. After Athens, we spent 4 days, 3 nights in Mykonos, before heading to Santorini! In today’s blog post I’m sharing all the details about our 4 days in Mykonos!
We had originally planned on staying 3 days, 2 nights, but our ferry got canceled due to the high winds. It was nice being able to spend an extra day in Mykonos. We actually ended up going back into town during the day and chartered a boat for the afternoon and sunset. One thing I highly recommend if you’re prone to motion sickness is making sure you have Dramamanine for the ferry rides.
Where We Stayed
Bill & Coo Suites and Lounge was definitely my favorite hotel from the trip. I absolutely loved this luxury hotel. The staff here was amazing and very accommodating. They helped us schedule our day-to-day activities and had amazing recommendations about the island. It’s a short walk or drive from Mykonos Town. The hotel had a car service we used, but taxis were also an option. Our suite was large and spacious. We even had our own private pool. They also have private villas, a personal in-house spa, and a DJ. The restaurant ‘Gastronomy Project’ had amazing cuisine and is one of the most sought-after restaurants on the island. I ordered french toast every morning for breakfast.
Must Visit: Mykonos Town
Mykonos Town is the capital and largest town on the island. It’s a must-visit! There is a bunch of shopping, restaurants, and beautifully colored streets (I took a ton of photos here with the colorful doors as backdrops.) Also located here are The Windmills, a popular, iconic feature of the island. They can be seen from every point of the town and are said to have been built in the 16th century!
Beach Club: Branco Mykonos
Our day at the beach club at Branco Mykonos, a 5-star hotel was truly the best day! You can’t go to Mykonos without visiting a beach club! We rented a cabana for the day. The vibe and energy were immaculate.
Where we Ate
Appagio Restaurant – This beautiful restaurant is on the water and is known for its seafood, fresh from the Aegean Sea.
Nice n Easy – We ate here twice! This organic bistro is a staple in Mykonos. The must-haves on the menu are the Calamari and the dessert, Glyka tou koutaliou (Greek spoon sweets).
Kazarma – I absolutely loved the atmosphere at this restaurant. The menu is pretty lengthly with lots of traditional Greek dishes!
Caprice Bar – We stopped at this bar one night before dinner and were pleasantly surprised by the beautiful view of the Aegean Sea. It’s the perfect spot to watch the sunset.
Casa Di Giorgio – This popular restaurant was so crowded – and for good reason! They have the best pizza and pasta in Mykonos Town. Highly recommend.
Greece is truly incredible and I feel so thankful to have checked it off my bucket list. Don’t forget to subscribe to my newsletter so you don’t miss my next post about that last part of our trip, Santorini!
