Travel- Mykonos Island, Greece – A Dreamy Paradise for Parties and Seafood
Mykonos was quite different from Santorini. The roads were narrow and steep.
The common way to travel there from Santorini is by Ferry. When it comes to travel I am never the planner and I never ask for the itinerary. I prefer to let my planner friends take care of everything so I can enjoy all the surprises. But this led me to 3 hours of suffering on the ferry since my dear friend wasn’t aware of my seasickness. However the return journey was quite enjoyable after I sold my ferry ticket to a local travel agency in exchange for a private jet (more costly, of course).
Mykonos is best known for parties; we stayed at Mykonos Blu’s Jacuzzi suite with a spectacular sea-side view (the hotel is open seasonally from May – October) and drove down to Paradise Beach where all the action was. After sunset the party continued at Paradise Club – the biggest nightclub in Mykonos and rated one of the top 100 clubs of the world.
Mykonos is also paradise for seafood lovers. Restaurants get their supplies daily from the fish markets. All fish and seafood are caught and served fresh.
Check out a great restaurant called Hippie Fish that is situated just beside the beach of Agios Ioannis. The restaurant served excellent lobsters by kilos and variety seafood platters. The staff was friendly and served us some complementary ouzos and limoncello. It was great to just chill and digest on the beach by the restaurant after getting a bit buzzed.
Other attractions and activities to do include walking around Mykonos Town, visiting the windmills and watching the sunset at Little Venice– a nice romantic stretch by the sea.
