I’m going to let the photos do most of the talking on this one.
Day 1- I arrive at Mykonos Blu it’s perched above Psarou beach, a long stretch of white sand and teal waters. The hotel has its own private beach, overlooking the enchanting Aegean sea. Behind me is the famous Namos Beach Club, where I’m looking forward to a spot of lunch, mohitos and dancing on the tables. That’s if I can drag myself away from this pool.
Namos beach club
A sun lounger, Mojitos and beef sliders at Namos beach club. Delicious.
I had been told Namos Beach Club is the best beach club in Mykonos, with the DJs, and tables dancing antics. Instead, I find a laid back affair filled with families and no party vibe. It’s 4pm, guess I’ll wait and see.
Time to close my eyes and soak up the sun, I will save the partying for St. Tropez. Or so I think.
Swimming in the cool clear Mediterranean sea. Dinner, and champagne. Yet still, no one dancing on the tables. So refusing to wait any longer I ditched my shoes, and stepped onto my table, and got the party started.
the island of delos
Arriving In Delos this morning to visit the birthplace of the gods’ Apollo and Athena. I wear my best Dolce & Gabbana for the occasion.
The statues of the lions were dedicated to the Sanctuary of Apollo at the end of the 7th c. They stood as guardians of the Sacred Lake and the Sanctuary. Only four of the lions remain (the number of original lions ranges between nine and nineteen). The ones at the terrace are replicas.
A dip in the sea and then into town for lunch.
Notes on visiting delos
- Rent a private boat through your hotel.
- Boats leave Mykonos in the early morning and allow visitors to stay on Delos for a few hours before returning before the site closes, usually in mid-afternoon.
- Wear sunglasses, a wide brim sun hat, and walking shoes.
- Pack sunblock, insect repellant, a bottle of water, and snacks that don’t melt.
- There’s only a small cafe on the island with a limited choice of food and drinks and you potentially have to queue with boatloads of tourists, so it is really important to take some supplies with you, especially water as there is precious little shade.
Farewell Mykonos, thank you for a decadent weekend packed full of adventures and walking amongst your ancient gods.
Until we meet again, I will keep you in my heart.
