Top things to do in Mykonos, Greece

Mykonos was probably my favorite island out of all of them because there was more to do. The downtown was the biggest out of all of them. They had a ton of beaches to choose from with lounge chairs and restaurants serving you food and drinks. They had a lot of hotels that you could go have drinks at and lots of cafes on the water in little Venice.

One day we rented a quad bike for 25 euros for the whole day and road around the whole island. We road to Panoramos beach on the opposite side of the island from downtown. They had a pretty restaurant on the beach we had lunch at then we swam in the clear blue water. Then we drove to Paradise beach, which is basically a party on the beach. There are a lot of cafes and bars right up against the sand. People start partying in the afternoon and it normally lasts all night. Then we drove to a hotel called Cavo Tagoo. We sat at the bar outside near the pool that had a fish tank underneath the bar.

Two of the days we went to Platos Gialos beach. You can rent sun beds and an umbrella for the day from one of the restaurants that serves you on the sand. Go to Yialos Yialos restaurant and rent the chairs from them. They were super nice and the prices were really good compared to the rest of the restaurants.

We got so lucky on couchsurfing  and got to stay at a massive three story Villa by ourselves. There aren’t that many hostels or people on couch surfing in Mykonos so we didn’t know where we were going to stay. We found a guy last minute on couch surfing that lives there during the summer. He had just bought a rental house with his friend that they rent out for 2,000 euros a night! The inside was finished but the outside still had some construction going on so they said instead of staying at their house we could just stay in the villa since it wasn’t being used anyways. We walked up to the front yard and couldn’t believe there was an infinite pool. The inside felt like we were walking the traditional streets of a Greek village.
