Mykonos

The last stop in the Greek Islands. We spent 3 days soaking up the last bit of summer sunshine in beautiful Mykonos. This island has never been a secret and is a favorite summer destination for jet-setters who love to party until sunrise and indulge in everything Mykonos has to offer. Although it’s reputation precedes itself, there is something for everyone in Mykonos Town.

As picturesque as a postcard, the old town and Little Venice area of Mykonos are what makes this island so special. Besides the white stone pathways and quaint alleys the beaches of Mykonos are just as stunning. The water was crystal clear and pristine, the water quality around this islands is worth the trip alone.

To Do:

Scorpios

Oh Scorpios, how we love thee. One of the best places we visited in Mykonos was Scorpios. This secluded beach club is atop the rocky cliff side overlooking the ocean is a dream. The bohemian decor made us think of Tulum. At sunset everyone at Scorpios is ready to listen to some live music, sip exotic cocktails, and dance with their toes in the sand.

We made a reservation to eat dinner at Scorpios for sunset and the food was fresh, local and delicious. After dinner we danced as the DJ pulled out his guitar and started to sing along with the beats.

Nammos Beach Club

We spent a day at one of the most famous beach clubs in Greece and possibly the world, Nammos. This premiere beach club is exquisitely located on the marvelous sandy beach of Psarou. This world-renowned hot spot is no stranger to the rich and famous. The services is impeccable and it doesn’t hurt that the servers are all models in bikinis. Two beach chairs and an umbrella for the day will set you back $150 euros. We decided to splurge since we were on our Honeymoon and thought our day spent at Nammos was worth every penny.

Besides a fun beach area; Nammos Restaurant is divine! The sushi is as fresh as it gets and our lunch was amazing.

Hole in the Wall Bakery

This small traditional Greek bakery was a great find! The entrance is somewhat hidden next to some stairs but once you climb down into the little space you will find a vast array of freshly baked pastries and breads. The older man working there didn’t speak any English but had a huge smile on his face while we picked out our treats. Try the honey balls, they are a Greek specialty and were delicious!

Greece has definitely been a special place for us and we would recommend Greece for anyone looking for an amazing honeymoon location. The charming white washed cities, fresh simple food, alleyways, and beaches stole our hearts. We only visited 4 of the many islands in Greece and can’t wait to come back and see more of what this beautiful country has to offer.
