I had always two places to visit in Greece in my personal bucket list: Santorini and Mykonos islands. And finally, a couple of weeks ago, we visited Mykonos and spent there a very romantic weekend. In fact, it’s only one and a half hours flight from Tel Aviv and it could be really an ideal destination for a short getaway.
Mykonos offers amazing hotels with great views on Aegean Sea, outstanding in-hotel service, quite and clean beaches, authentic architecture and, as it known, – one of the best nightlife!
My choice fell on Mykonian Avaton Resort 5* just because I was impressed by its amazing infinity pool with the View 🙂 We were lounging at the bar, near the pool, gazing at island’s shapes far in the sea, enjoying sunset and meeting beautiful twilight… A kinda of meditation and unique romantic atmosphere for 3 days. In addition to all that magic we visited the hotel’s featured spa with mineral pools and ultimately professional massages. One day we’ve been walking in Mykonos town (our hotel was about 25 minutes taxi ride) without any guide map, and found cutest places, cafes and viewpoints.
I should notice that our visit occurred in a very low season [October 5-8] – couple of weeks prior to closing for tourists. Surely, we gained a lot in terms of calmness and privacy, but missed a warm sea and swimming season in general (not a big issue whilst you have such a Pool).
It was a great, relaxing and ‘chilling out’ weekend for us. I would share also general ‘pros’ and ‘cons’ that I learned from travel in Mykonos, Greece.
- Hotels service
- Pools, views, special romantic atmosphere
- Local fish and sea food
- Friendly island for any sexual orientation 🙂
- Mykonos is very expensive (even comparing to Japan!): taxi, dinners, spa treatments etc.
- No plants and vegetation on the island – the landscape is poor. My advise: just book a great hotel with stunning pools/spa/views or stay in the town of Mykonos to taste that authentic atmosphere 🙂
