I haven't read anywhere as accurate and superbly presented article of Mykonos as this one!......I love the bit which reads "It was, however during these times a rather poor island with limited agricultural resources "😂😂.... only now it is the most priciest rock in the world!..... costing upwards€25,000 per sq metre.....and as far as I know from a few years back....the requirements to build a house was 4000 sq metres!.....and business development over 10,000 Sq metres..... Enjoy reading this...
I used a lot of information on my Guided Island Tours of Mykonos...so the history and facts are accurate!A pleasure to post this for readers to enjoy having lived and worked in Tourism Industry for many years!❤️❤️Saga poh Mykonou mu!❤️
 

Favorite Beaches on Mykonos

I know that people have mixed feelings about the beaches of Mykonos, but I plan to go this year. I've been in the past and wanted to share my three favorites:

1. Elia Beach​

  • Elia is the longest sandy beach in Mykonos, offering a less crowded experience. It's ideal for those who want to relax and enjoy crystal-clear waters.
  • Tip: Try the water sports facilities there — I don't enjoy it but my family members report that this is fun. They've rented jet skis.

2. Paradise Beach​

  • As the name suggests, Paradise Beach is lovely. It's known for the party scene, but during the day it isn't bad. They just play DJ music while you're at the beach, and there's a lively bar.
  • Note: Leave before the evening parties start if that's not your scene. I love the energy during the day but I have to be in the mood for the music.

3. Psarou Beach​

  • Psarou might allure you with its upscale vibe and excellent beachside services. It's all about luxury yachts, boutique shops, and high-end dining.
  • Recommendation: Don't miss the opportunity to snorkel in these beautiful waters. It's very serene here in general.

Learning Greek While in Mykonos?

I've recently embarked on the exciting journey of learning Greek, motivated further by an upcoming trip to the beautiful island of Mykonos. Given the rich culture, stunning landscapes, and the warm hospitality native to this region, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to immerse myself in the language amid its native speakers.

However, as someone relatively new to this endeavor, I'm eagerly seeking advice on the best strategies for learning Greek while exploring Mykonos. Whether it be recommendations for local language schools that cater specifically to visitors, tips on integrating learning into daily activities, or suggestions for social settings that are particularly friendly to language learners, I'm all ears.

Additionally, I'm interested in any local groups or exchange programs that promote cultural immersion and language practice. I believe that interacting with the locals and engaging directly with the culture can significantly enhance the language learning experience.

Lastly, if there are specific apps or resources that you found helpful while learning Greek in a similar context, please don't hesitate to share. I'm open to exploring all options that might assist in making my learning experience as enriching and effective as possible.

I look forward to hearing your suggestions and stories about your own language learning journeys in Greece. Thank you in advance for your insights and advice!

Best Ancient Ruins to See in Mykonos?

I'm planning a trip to Mykonos and I'm particularly interested in exploring its ancient ruins. I’ve heard that the island has a rich history, and I’d love to include some historical sites in my itinerary. Could anyone recommend the best ancient ruins to visit in Mykonos? Here are a few specifics I’m hoping to learn more about:
  1. Top Ruins to Visit: Which ruins are considered must-sees on the island? Are there any that stand out due to their historical significance or state of preservation?
  2. Visitor Information: Are there any tips for visiting these sites, such as best times to go, entry fees, or guided tour options?
  3. Historical Context: I’d appreciate any background information or interesting historical facts about the ruins. Understanding the history behind the sites would make the visits even more enriching.
  4. Accessibility: Are the ruins easily accessible for travelers, or are there any challenges in reaching them (e.g., remote locations, rugged terrain)?

How do you find the "good" parties on Mykonos?

I went to only one of the beach clubs on Mykonos and it wasn't really my vibe. Yet, I constantly see people partying in Mykonos and it looks fun and they're having a blast. How do these people find those parties?

My questions:

  • Are many of these parties private events?
  • Are there clubs away from the beaches that are known for their nightlife and DJs?
  • Are there different DJs that go to Mykonos? Maybe I can find out about the parties by tracking the DJs?
Another possibility is maybe the party scene really isn't my thing. I appreciate all your thoughts!

I'm planning a trip to the enchanting area of Little Venice in Mykonos and I've heard so much about its stunning views and quirky charm. I'm reaching out to this community because I know there are a lot of well-traveled folks around here who could share their insights.

Can anyone suggest the absolute must-see attractions and activities in Little Venice? I'm interested in anything from historical sites, picturesque spots for photography, to the best places to relax and watch the sunset.
