Mykonos – Paradise Beach

Having explored Mykonos Town the day before and had a pretty big meal with quite a lot of Greek wine, we slept late on our last full day in Mykonos! I woke everyone up eventually with haloumi cheese, bacon and feta on crusty bread, at which point pool games inevitably ensued.

Deciding it was time to move the party elsewhere, we headed to one of the beaches recommended to us by the owner of the villa we stayed in – Paradise Beach!

Paradise Beach is 100% a party beach, but in the day and out of season it was still pretty chilled. We grabbed sofas, the boys ordered beers and in the spirit of getting back on our 18-30s days, we ordered a bucket of cocktails.

Well, we were on holiday! Why not.

Afterwards we laid around on loungers…

And then actually did brave swimming in the sea – and it was worth it to swim along with goggles on, because there were so many tropical fish! Apart from the Gili Islands, I’ve never seen so many. Definitely worth snorkelling if you get out there.

At around 6pm the music got a bit much for us and a few people started dancing on the bar, singing about shots. It was all getting a bit Malia-2008, so we retreated back to our villa and got ready for our final night out together.

Our final day (we didn’t fly until 9pm) was spent lazing on Ornos beach, eating in as many Greek restaurants as we could (one excellent, one dreadful) and soaking up every last spot of sun before we had to return home.

I had the most amazing two weeks exploring Santorini and Mykonos. I’m so happy I got to experience it with some of my best friends as well as spending some romantic time with my husband - it was by far the highlight of my year. I would highly recommend it to absolutely anyone - whatever you're looking for in a holiday, whether's it relaxation, romance, culture or a good party - Greece has it!
