Mykonos

It is considered the most glamorous island in Greece because of its sizzling weather, family-friendly atmosphere, and vibrant nightlife. On top of that, Mykonos has the unique energy that makes it difficult not to fall in love with this location.


Mykonos is mostly famous for its incredible beaches, a myriad of romantic resorts, delicious seafood, and a crazy party scene. This island has a variety of beaches ranging from remote locations to well-organized ones. Mykonos is relatively small but it has many natural beaches untouched by people. Overall, it has more than 30 beaches to any taste and budget.


Even the most sophisticated travelers will undoubtedly appreciate the Mykonian architectural monuments, from famous Windmills to Little Venice and endless churches. Don’t miss the opportunity to wander through Mykonos town and make fantastic photos near white-washed houses and the bougainvillea trees. All in all, photo opportunities are everywhere in Mykonos.


How far is Mykonos from Santorini? The distance between both islands is 149 km. The ferry ride usually lasts 2-3 hours depending on the schedule and the type of vessel.


Santorini

Picturesque sunsets, amazing buildings, and delicious wine - these things prove that Santorini is the best location for lovers. This island is also a good place for weddings!

Much of the island is built on the rim of an extinct volcano. Therefore, the town looks like it is tumbling down the hill. Therefore, if you are going to explore Santorini, sensitive shoes are a must.


If you adore archeology, then you should visit the excavations at Akrotiri. Its history goes back to 3600 BC. This small but beautiful settlement was destroyed by volcanic ash. You can also visit the town of Mesa Gonia - a small ghost town that suffered from the earthquake in 1965. If necessary, you can also catch a ferry to Rafina, Crete, Paros, or Ios.


Santorini is also a perfect location for an active trip. Here, you can go for water sports such as banana-boating, diving, waterskiing, wind-kiting, etc.


Seafood lovers will undoubtedly be delighted by the food on Santorini. The island is full of tavern-like eateries and award-winning restaurants. If you want to taste the best wine on the island, you need to pop into Santo Winery, located on the top of the cliff. Tourists usually tend to visit this place to taste the wine and enjoy its stunning views.


We hope that this travel guide to Mykonos and Santorini will help you plan your trip!

This summer I had the opportunity to travel to South Korea with my father and let me just say this.... It was honestly everything that I thought and more. When I was there the streets were really clean and also the people there were so nice. During my stay, I was in Myeongdong which is a district within Seoul and there were so many kpop merchandises it was crazy. Furthermore, I had the chance to taste the shaved ice cream that comes in multiple flavors, although I was only able to try Blueberry, Green tea and Mango with Banana which was amazing. Finally, while being there it felt like the future. There were so many inventions that I saw that was put to good use that makes me think that America isn't ready for....
