Mykonos Photo Gallery

Greece Flag

Mykonos is portrayed as a party island in the guidebooks, but I suppose mid-May is still too early and too cold for the thinly-clothed outdoor parties on the beach. There weren't that many toursts around and the streets were nice to stroll in. There is less of an authentic Greek island feel to it because of the commercialization.

I have seen these blue eyes before in Turkey.

The main waterfront has crystal-blue water but the beach is not so fit for bathing.

I enjoyed exploring the side streets, which are perfectly illuminated by the sun due to the white buildings and pavements.

With perfect temperatures and endless sun, al fresco dining is the right kind of meal.

The windmill and Little Venice areas are among the island's biggest tourist traps. Bars line the waterfront but I prefer a more tranquil setting to enjoy the ocean and sunset.

The Greek islands have the bluest oceans and bluest skies.

The white walls, coloured panels and doors, with a pot of red flowers are a perfect combination.

After a long walk, have a seat and grab an ice-cream.

Fresh fish sells for cheap here. Greece is a great destination for value of money.

And the sunset is magical.

The town gets quite lively at night as well. I wonder how things will be when party season arrives?
