–Would you spend 2 days in Mykonos in April ?
Yes , you should . These 2 days are gonna be the best 2 days of your life .
It’s true , Mykonos is a magical Cycladic paradise !! It must be the first greek island to become famous back in the days . The beautiful white little houses and streets ,beach parties , cocktails , beautiful bikinis are the first things that come in my mind when I hear the word ‘’Mykonos‘’. Ok , now you might be thinking that you have to spend an entire week during August in Mykonos in order to live the ‘’Myconian dream ‘’ . That’s not true ! We spent less than 48 hours in Mykonos in April and we had the best time. Mykonos in spring is so charming , quiet and relaxing . You can enjoy the island’s beauty without all the crowd . So , what are you waiting for ? Start packing!
So , let’s see things to do in Mykonos when you only have 2 days !
We woke up very early in the morning (at home) , around 6 am . We took our breakfast ( peanut butter and pancakes ) which was delicious btw ! We arrived at the airport at 9 am and our flight departed at 10 am . We landed at Athens airport one hour late, and at 1 pm we took the flight to Mykonos . At 3 pm we arrived at our hotel room , we took a quick shower changed our clothes and went out to discover the beautiful cosmopolitan Mykonos ! You can check my outfits HERE !
Our hotel was located in Mykonos down town (which is called “chora”) so it was super easy for us to discover all the Myconian beauty ! Our first ‘’thing to see’’ was the glamorous Kalogera street , where the insta-famous Philipi hotel is located. A few steps after Philippi hotel there is the Linea Piu boutique , the most luxury women’s boutique in Greece with brands like CHANEL , Blumarine and many others .
This boutique was so beautiful ! If you follow our blog and adventures for a while you already know that we have been in luxury boutiques and department stores like Harrods before but Linea piu in Mykonos is the most beautiful and unique boutique I have ever seen . It felt very calm and friendly there ! So if a little luxury treat is in your budget and you are going to visit Mykonos this summer wait to spoil yourself there ! Ok , so after our mini CHANEL stop , we walked for 3-5 minutes and accidentally went to little Venice!
Why little Venice is so damn beautiful ?
These little colored houses are literally in the sea ! It’s like a painting ! I cant describe the beauty of this place with words ! Well , we stopped for half an hour to take some photos and videos (for our new youtube channel ) there , it wasn’t super crowded because it was April . I believe that during July or August it will be so much crowded there ! and right there , on our left hand , there were the famous Windmills .
Why windmills are so damn windy ?
OMG ! My hairstyle was completely destroyed there ! Ladies , please style your hair into a ponytale , it’s the only way ! But the view was pure magic from there , you can enjoy the full beauty of Little Venice from up there ! This place had less people than Little Venice and I can understand why ! Ok , i’m kidding ! This view totally deserves your hairstyle’s fall ! Don’t forget to take some photos there ! We spent 15 minutes of taking photos at the windmills trying to get a shot where my hair does’t look like a mess !
Take a down town night walk .
After the Windmills we went back to our hotel room to get a little rest . At 9 o’clock we went around Mykonos downtown and while walking and enjoying the picturesque beauty of Mykonos , we accidentally found ourselves at the port of Mykonos ! It was very beautiful with so much life ! Across the port there are many restaurants and bars when you can enjoy a glass of fine red wine or eat some delicious sea food! We had a quick glass of wine and then we went to our hotel room to sleep and recharge our batteries of the next day!
We woke up around 7 am and we had some breakfast at our hotel room so we filled our batteries with carbs and proteins to enjoy our last day in the island of the winds ! So first we wanted to visit Panagia Paraportiani church . I’m pretty sure that you have already seen this church on instagram or on pinterest because its one of Mykono’s most instagramble places !
So just take me to church …. please
Oh my god ! This church is so beautiful ! It’s the most amazing orthodox church I have ever seen ! All this white , its dreamy ! But why am I talking to you about this? Just take a look at the pictures below ! I spent half an hour or maybe more to take this picture and the funniest thing (as I wrote on our instagram ) was that there were a queue of tourists waiting to take photos at this church .
A tip I have to give you for taking photos there is to not wear white because you’ll probably blend with the background ! I wore a beautiful black off shoulder H&M dress. See my outfit HERE !
Yes , I changed my outfit …
After our Panagia Paraportiani photoshoot we ate greek souvlaki and went immediately to our hotel to change my outfit so we can create more content to share with you guys ! So , I changed my black dress with my red striped set from ZARA (you can see my whole look here) . Then we ran into Mykonos to take some shots . We walked around little Venice and the port for almost 2 hours enjoying our last few hours in Mykonos and taking some dazzling photos ! You can watch our INSTAGRAM stories to see our walks around Mykonos in action , HERE !
So , then we went to our hotel room and got a lot lot lot of sleep !
Mykonos is a wonderful , cosmopolitan island that can give you the summer vacation of your life ! We spent 2 wonderful days back there ! I wish we could have some more but we are greek at the end , it’s easier for us to get there any time ! So guys what are you waiting for ? Check flights and hotels , Mykonos is waiting for you !
