Mykonos was our last stop of our 13-day island-hopping dream vacation through Greece. We arrived from Naxos in the early afternoon. Our host at Eleni Studios in Mykonos Town coordinated to pick us up at the ferry and drive us to our accommodations in the middle the winding alleys of Mykonos Town. We set off to walk the winding alleyways for a little while and within minutes stumbled upon historic churches, Little Venice and the Windmills of Mykonos. We went back to get dolled-up for portraits through the alleyways and then a fabulous dinner at Pasta Barkia! Words can’t do justice to how much we enjoyed the meal and experience at this restaurant. In the morning, we took a kayak tour with Mykonos Kayak tours. We kayaked, snorkled, swam, had a beach picnic and talked with people from all over the world and enjoyed the hospitality of the family-run tour. After a full day in the sun, we took a nap, and then went out to celebrate my birthday. I just wanted to wander and take pictures of the beautiful patios, home-fronts, ocean views, and bays. Mykonos is the best island for fine dining, for beach parties, late night dancing and for shopping. These are some of my favorite travel and landscape photographs of Mykonos.

So, yeah.. Naxos… hands down the prettiest beaches we experienced in Greece. So happy I researched so many islands and created our itinerary that included the popular spots like Santorini & Mykonos, but also took little detours for Milos & Naxos. With our six-hour ferry ride from Milos, we had a mere 24 hours to experience Naxos, which is by no way fair to this gorgeous, unique and island full of life! This island has so much to experience that we didn’t even get to touch. There are more than 30 beaches, but it also has one of the largest “downtowns” of the the Greek Island capitals, and there are a variety of Greek ruins to tour and experience. We came for the beaches, so we hit up three beaches in our 24 hours. Like in Santorini, we rented an ATV to have the freedom to beach hop. Upon arrival, we booked an amazing hotel just steps away from the beach and loaded up the ATV with our beach gear and took off through the bustling town and off through the rocky terrain and farmland of Naxos. Our first beach was Plaka beach. (Be warned, it is sometimes a nudist beach, typically made up of tourists… but it’s something to note). To catch the sunset, we drove back to the main town of Chora (or Naxos Town) to see the hillside with Apollos Gate and to have a sunset drink overlooking the bay. In the morning we enjoyed breakfast on Saint George’s Beach and then went to one of the best beaches in the Aegean… or maybe the world: Agios Prokopios. I think Chandra and I just stood staring at the crystal clear waters with our jaws dropped for about 15 minutes before we chose were to lay out for the day. We spent as many hours as we could walking the beach, swimming and dining atop the nearby cliffs that overlook the Agios Prokopios beachfront. Sadly, we had to say adieu to Naxos and hello to Mykonos! We took a short 45 minute ferry to Mykonos that afternoon.

In many ways, Instagram as changed the way I travel because now I am exposed to so many more beautiful places in the world. Milos, Greece is one place I couldn’t wait to see for myself after seeing a single image of the Kleftiko Caves. We took the SeaJets fast ferry from Santorini to Milos, which took about two hours. We didn’t have the fortune of a sunny day for sailing, but the experience was still one that I will treasure! There are so many different boat tours of Milos and are the best way to experience the island because so many beaches are inaccessible by land transportation. We chose to go with Excellent Yachting after some of the other boats were canceling their sailing tours due to the winds and incoming rain. We had one full day to experience the island and were so happy with our experience with our two captains. They prepared a wonderful experience full of interesting history, snorkeling, a wonderful meal and all the wine we could sip. The port of Adamas is a unique, port city lined with perfect patios and a bay view full of sailboats, fishing boats, and yachts. We enjoyed our few meals in town and the amazing coffee at The Egoist, where we had our star-sighting of Emma Thompson! haha. I loved Milos and would have loved to spend more days exploring the caldera of Milos and the 58 square miles of land. Milos is a geological treasure! Just scroll to see the wide variety of unique land that creates this stunning Greek Isle.
