Mykonos - A day at Paradise Beach

Mykonos, beautiful Mykonos. Another memorable Greek Island that Emi and I decided while enjoying a beer on the beach, we had to return to. We found out that Mykonos was the party island. Every night the beaches turn into massive outdoor disco parties. During the day those same beaches are the perfect place to relax and work on your tan.

As soon as we got off the boat I wanted to take in the scenery and grab a coffee to get us ready for the day. A word of warning for those who have never been to Mykonos. The streets are confusing and it's impossible to hail a cab. Primarily because there aren't many, but everyone takes the public bus. Either sign up for a cruise ship organized bus (you'll pay more, but won't have to worry about getting to the beach) or take the public bus which is cheap and will take you to beaches the cruise ships won't take you.
Reflecting on life.
Paradise Beach. A little windy, but because the sand was a little coarse it didn't blow up into your face or more importantly your food. They had a little food court connected to the beach where we bought our lunch.
Chicken gyro plate with pita. tzasiki, tomatoes, cumcumbers, and french fries.
Make sure to grab a Mythos when you hang out on the beach in Greece.
One of Emi's favorite snacks of the trip. Olive Oil Lay's chips. They tasted like olive oil, really good.
A beautiful day, followed by a beautiful sunset off of the ship. Mykonos was amazing and somewhere we hope to return to soon.
