If there's one word to describe Mykonos, Greece, it's majestic.
From the crystal-clear waters, to the abundance of eye-catching colours around every turn, the small island's main village boasts much of the charming architecture and Insta-worthy photo opps as oh-so-popular Santorini — but it's made better by one main thing: smaller crowds.
Although it's sure to be abuzz in the height of tourist season, I found this village to be charming and easily accessible when I visited in late May.
I only had a half-day here (oh, how I wish I'd had longer!), but I still got a good sense of what Mykonos has to offer.
I recommend getting a little lost in the maze of tiny alleyways and weaving your way in and out of the countless shops and cafes. It's a great place to snap up textiles and jewelry — although I did find much of it was made in Turkey due to it's proximity. And I recommend trying the fried feta coated in sesame seeds — delish!
After you're done wandering the village (and especially after you've eaten that fried cheese! ;)) take a small hike up to the top of the hill and look down at the village, beach and ocean beyond. It's a breathtaking vantage point, I promise!
