Mykonos travelogue picture
It is well after midnight on a weekend night in late June and the narrow, high sidewalk that hugs Mykonos's harbor is crammed with tourists clutching pricey drinks capped by giant fruit kabobs. Fueled by alcohol or perhaps just inspired by the warm moonlit night, one young couple leap from the crowded walkway into the water below, whooping. They spend several minutes struggling to gain their footing and drag themselves out of the ocean, the woman's white skirt now transparent. Most of the crowd above pays no attention. Mykonos, a rocky, scrub-strewn outcropping in the middle of the Aegean Sea, enjoys a bit of a tangled reputation. It's one of the most popular, and most expensive of the Greek isles, even though it can be baked by the sun or raked by wind in the summer. But that popularity - augmented by the steady stream of hedonists, clubbers, gay men, college kids and nudists who have come ashore in the past few decades - has tended to put off travelers who feel they have put their spring break years behind them and are not interested in a shopping in a village where stores specializing in condoms or offering tattoos jostle up against the Patek Philippe boutique. In recent years, though, the island has undergone bit of a makeover. Many of the older hotels have been recently revamped to reflect a clean-lined, cool aesthetic, strewn with white drapes that flow seductively in the breeze. New boutique hotels and restaurants concentrate on simplicity, and unusual, arty details, and many have D.J.'s whose mandate is to create a background vibe rather than keep time for gyrating hips. If this island has one place that represents the new Mykonos (while not entirely discarding all remnants of the old) it is the Belvedere Hotel, an imposingly well-gated complex perched halfway up a hill overlooking the town of Mykonos (also known as Chora).

Hi there and welcome to the website. A well written report and interesting to read. It would be more useful to any visitors if you could provide some more details in the other sections, accomodation, hangouts, nightlife, restaurants etc. If you do have more details you can go back and edit the report.

I see this is your first report and I think you did quite well. It's too bad you didn't add any pictures.
