The island of the wind.
“Ladies and gentlemen, unfortunately due to high winds – this aircraft is unable to land. We will circle the surrounding area of Mykonos for the next 45 minutes to allow this to calm down.. otherwise Athens it is.”
I guess I had to find out the hard way. Lesson number 1: If at all possible, avoid visiting Mykonos in May, the windiest period of all.
Aside from my 45 minute role play on what seemed to have been a horror movie set, this trauma was quickly forgotten upon landing.. Mykonos is an absolute dream.
Resort Royal Myconian – Elia Beach:
Just like a postcard, I certainly was not disappointed. The Royal Myconian has been classed as a ‘World Leading Hotel’.
Equipped with its own private beach, swimming pools, restaurants and in house shopping centre.. our hotel blew us away.
Santa Marina Resort – Mykonos:
However, having stumbled across The Santa Marina Resort whilst dining at Buddha bar..
I may have to pay Mykonos a second visit solely to stay here.
Buddha Bar – Mykonos:
Dining on top of the sea doesn’t get much better than this, not to mention how incredible the food and cocktails are.
My highlight of this whole trip was simply taking a stroll through Mykonos town..
..And being in absolute awe as I looked up to constant blossoms of pink flowers.
If you know Siri, you’d know how obsessed I am with designer stores. Mykonos was perfect for this.
Who would have thought?
This island truly is beautiful and I cannot recommend visiting enough.
Mykonos is perfect for a girls trip, a romantic getaway or simply just a holiday to relax.
So, until next time Mykonos..
