- We were here: 2 and a half days in September 2017.
- Number of days needed: one, and another if you want to explore the island or go to the beach.
- My score: 4/5.
Apart from Santorini, this is the other world famous Greek island. Comparisons between one and the other are inevitable and at the same time unnecessary, since a tript to the Cyclades is not complete without visiting both.
- The biggest attraction is the capital of the island, the town of the same name, one of the most beautiful I’ve seen, but whose location at sea level can not compete with the cliffs of its rival Santorini. Even so, you would eat it if possible; the white houses with windows and doors painted in bright colors, the old windmills, the narrow streets and their location next to the sea make it one of the most charming Mediterranean towns. The atmosphere is generally calm, despite the myriad of visitors in high season.
- The rest of the island has sold its soul to tourism, with its advantages and disadvantages: it is not so aesthetic and there are too many people in summer, but restaurants, amenities and services proliferate on beaches and other towns, which has made it one of the summer party venues par excellence Ibiza style. Keep in mind that the beaches are generally good and crystal clear, but they are not exactly dreamy, and some have rows of sunbeds and umbrellas to the shore and rave music 24 hours.
Regardless of whether we seek tranquility or debauchery, Mykonos should be a destination to be considered in the bucket list of any traveler.
