Greek island hopping....Mykonos, Naxos, and Santorini.
I chose these three islands due to their locations, ferry connections and contrasts and wasn't disappointed. We stayed in three very different properties which suited our family perfectly.
We flew with Easyjet into Mykonos then home from Santorini, after 10 nights of Greek sunshine.
My highlights :
Mykonos: Watching the A listers on their yachts in Platys Yialos. Mykonos Town for cocktails and sunsets over Little Venice. Getting lost in Mykonos Town's maze of back streets.
Naxos: Naxos Town- loved the harbour and Old Town. THE most amazing sunsets I have ever seen in the WORLD whilst eating some of the best seafood I have ever tasted. Try Patatosporos restaurant - amazing! Book ahead for a table in the beach for the sunsets. Laid back Greece, uncommercial, friendly and really good value.
Santorini: What a view! Sitting on our terrace overlooking the caldera watching the sunsets whilst the cruise ships sailed away. Last day on a fabulous catamaran cruise around the island, swimming in the sea and the hot springs around the volcano with BBQ on board. Hiring a car for the day to see the whole of the island, visiting Oia ( stunning hotels with views to die for) eating at A Good Heart restaurant with the famous Anna and her sun-dried tomatoes.
Tips: Beware of the days the cruise ships enter the port in Santorini, the town of Thira gets very busy.
