Mykonos is not really an island for my taste but my friends insisted that we should at least visit once.

I have to admit that Chora was really impressive. We found a room in like 20 minutes as soon as we reached the port, and our tour in the whitewashed island began. Locals and tourists walking the narrow alleys, families preparing for their morning swim, a pleasant atmosphere in general, a typical day in a Greek island.

After eating a rich breakfast, a quick coffee and we were already at the beach of Platis Gialos. It is fully organized the waters were so calm and clean that day, but very crowded. Some nice bars that we met on our way to the hotel were actually quite nice with excellent drinks and cocktails. We spend the rest of the days enjoying the local cuisine, sunbathing for hours at the nearby beaches and dancing at the lively bars of Mykonos.

The most famous neighborhood of the island is Little Venice and if you asked me I would gladly live there one day. The entire quarter is full of Venetian two storey houses with nice balconies literally hanging over the sea. Some great cafeterias and bars, it is the perfect romantic night away!

Imagine you and your friends in Mykonos in the middle of August. We chose Mykonos at the last minute due to last minute air tickets and I was so worried because we hadn't booked any hotel. We arrived at the island and after a couple of hours searching, we were lucky to find a traditional room at the centre of the town, in a great location close to Little Venice. The island was so loud with nonstop parties at the beaches in the day and at the bars in the night. Apart from the fact that Mykonos is a party island, I didn't really care to find out more.

We stayed for five days in Mykonos and it was fantastic, especially the beaches, you won't get disappointed. Lia beach is highly recommended, Paradise and Psarou are very nice. Locals treated us with respect and great hospitality. We did experience some humorous situations but it was fun. I wasn't offended by this floppy atmosphere, in fact i found it very amusing.

I visited Mykonos four years ago with four of my colleagues. We didn't really visit this island for the crazy parties and the clubs. In contrast to the wild atmosphere, the island revealed so much more, it offers numerous sightseeings. We visited the high season and it was so difficult to find a room in the town. We stayed in Agios Stefanos, a beautiful village close to Chora. Nearby there is a quiet sandy beach and beautiful taverns.

Chora is beautiful and above all you should go to Little Venice, an enchanting area with two-storey buildings, hanging balconies and lovely terraces. You will find many bars there. Also do not miss the sunset from the windmills, it is gorgeous. In Mykonos, you can do many things, people there are very friendly and easy to talk to. I guess because all want to holidays to relax, but the locals are nice too. Take a stroll around the waterfront or ride your bike around the island. Alegro is a great place for food in Chora. My favourite beaches were Lia and Super Paradise.

We went in Mykonos in May 2011. Many greeks told me that Mykonos is usualy too crowded, expensive and people overwelmed by tourist. Actually we spent a wonderful week! Tourists are present, but to a reasonnable level, people are friendly, weather was great, very nice period to make good photos with a clean and pleasent light. Last but not least, prices for that period are good, and we could rent a room at a luxury hotel at a very good rate.

The great antithesis

Mykonos is definitely a party island but for those looking beyond this, it can easily be considered one of the most magnificent islands in Greece. The cosmopolitan and luxurious aspect of Mykonos is what most people know. However, those who want to explore the island, should come during the spring time or at the end of the summer, late September.

Chora is the most intriguing location of Mykonos. It combines both traditional and modern elements, the island has been hugely developed with numerous boutique shops and everything you can find at a city center. The most beautiful part of the island is the area called Little Venice, consisting of two-storey colorful houses, one close to the another with great balconies and terraces. This is where most popular bars exist. The sunset from the windmills is even more impressive that Santorini's (at least it seemed like that to me), the pelican is a funny mascot and the fishing boats at the old port have a pretty charm.

Do not stick to the usual. If you have time, rent a bike and see. See the lighthouse at the far north, see the artificial lake that gives water to the island, see the horseriding centre and ride to the sun, light a candle in the small churches of the countryside, wave at the old men that set all day at the cafeneion and watch who is passing by. Lay on the beach and listen to the wind, while the sea gulls are singing above your head.

My favourite time in Mykonos is spring. In September, there is a heavy atmosphere ahead winter, but in spring it is easier to see people smiling and the sun seems brighter.

I booked two nights and ended up staying for 13. It was the perfect place, the perfect location and the perfect host. Stella made my stay very enjoyable with frappes and tyropita always fresh in the kitchen.

I stayed in 3 different apartments during my stay and all were equally spacious, comfortable and exactly what I needed. The location was excellent providing a quick route to get into town and an equally quick route to the most popular beaches on the island.
There are restaurants, grocery stores and a bakery within walking distance and the convenience of being able to rent a scooter on the premises was an added bonus. Stella also provided a transfer to the port which bacame valuable.

Thank you, Stella! I will be back in September for sure!

I spent only one night in Mykonos but it was a fabulous night. My sister, my good friend and I all had a wonderful time. We went to so many places. Scandanavian Bar, Mykonos Bar, Argo Bar and Space Nightclub were our favorites. The island is filled with young social people from all over the world. Everyone is friendly and fun.
