Mykonos Magic

Last week Lou and I escaped to Mykonos for three nights. It’s been on our hit list for a few years now, so we were excited to finally visit the Island we’d seen and heard so much about. Here’s a quick guide to the coolest Greek Island destination of Summer ’18.

Stay…

 

We stayed at Hotel San Giorgio. It was gorgeous and everything we could’ve hoped for. Mykonos is a party Island but we craved lazy days in the sun, and San Giorgio was the right hotel for this. A chilled vibe and an Instagram dream.

Whitewashed buildings, huge day beds and right by the sea…

Rooms are basic but clean and comfortable; we had a lovely balcony with a sea view. Food is excellent, we only ate breakfast and lunch here as had too many places to tick off for dinner. Service is a little slow, we were warned about this before our visit, and I think It’s intentional to match the bohemian vibe even if it can be annoying by day 3 when you have to wait 20 minutes for your glass of Rosé- don’t go expecting 5-star service, or you’ll be disappointed. It was super relaxed and just what we both needed.

Other hotels we were recommended were Cavo Tagoo, Boheme & Myconian Imperial.

Eat…

Interni- our favourite restaurant. Interni is downtown, and you’ll find it in the cobbled streets. A cool open-air restaurant playing good music and serving excellent food. A lively and perfect place to people watch or visit with a big group. As we were leaving most people were up on their chairs about to dance the night away.

Catari- a Cute spot in Mykonos town, the dream Neapolitan-style pizzas served in a picturesque yard.

Sea Satin- a Gorgeous spot right on the sea.

Spila- We had this on our list but didn’t make it. It looks so pretty and an excellent place for lunch.

Beaches…

 

Nammos- Where Kate Moss hosted her birthday party this year. Say no more.

Scorpios- Scorpios is more of a day place. We went for dinner and had to elbow our way to the restaurant through the crowd of partygoers still going strong after a day of sun and cocktails. The restaurant and food were great, but the experience of getting to our table was slightly off-putting. Next time I’d book a bed and get there in the afternoon and stay until sunset.

Jackie O’s- such good fun! Again I’d say another place to go for the day (this Mykonos crowd don’t stop!) we went for dinner, and the atmosphere was great but like Scorpios had quietened down by the time we’d finished our meal.

Do…

 

With 31 taxis on the whole of Mykonos (Yes really!), everyone hops on a bike or a quad and scoots around the Island.

Wear…

 

We both had packing panic! Having never visited the Island before we had no idea what the vibe would be. Relaxed it seems is the answer. No heels needed, most people carry on through from day to night so cool maxi dresses or wrap skirts to wear over a costume will see you through in style.
