Mykonos – an island for all tastes.
Many people who join us on our Mykonos Greece yoga retreats ask us what there is to do in between yoga classes. Some like to spend the day reading a book by the pool, but others want to venture out a bit more and explore.
We’ll do both, and there’s plenty to keep you entertained, you definitely won’t be bored!
And two of us from the Yoga Escapes team will be there with the group to offer up ideas and day trips, and we’ll plan a group dinner every night for the group.
Our favorite things to do in Mykonos Greece:
Loving life by the sea:
Our gorgeous 5* hotel is right on one of the prettiest beaches in Mykonos, so you can go for a swim and relax with a book. There’s also every water sport you can imagine from kitesurfing, jet skiing, to scuba diving and sailing.
And there are over 20 other beaches on the island to pick from, you can rent a car or scooter and discover some of them on your own, and we’ll be sure take a group to a couple of them during the week so you can see other parts of Mykonos.
One day we might even have a yoga class on lovely Panormos beach and then wander over to Kiki’s taverna for a sunset dinner in a truly magical place.
Day trips to Mykonos town or to a nearby island:
There’s a hotel shuttle bus into Mykonos town several times a the day. So you can spend the day taking a stroll through the pretty whitewashed streets and be tempted by the boutique stores, have lunch at one of the cafés and venture into the art galleries.
Mykonos town is one of the most beautiful in all of Greece and deserves a proper visit. We will go into town several times for dinner, but we highly recommend an afternoon there to explore it when the crowds are all at the beach.
Delos island is also an easy boat ride away, it has some impressive archeological sites and definitely worth a day trip. A group of us will go mid-week with a guided tour, all arranged by the hotel – so no logistics to worry about.
Poolside and spa:
And for those of you who prefer to take it easy, there’s a lovely pool area at the hotel with a jacuzzi and a wonderful spa, rated one of the best in Greece with excellent massages and detoxifying facials. And you’ll also get two thalasso-therapy treatments on us, so you can spend an afternoon just pampering yourself (and many of us do!).
We’ll be there to make this a wonderful week for you, however you choose to spend your time. Everything is of course optional, this is your holiday and you may prefer to just take it easy. The yoga classes are all optional as well – we won’t frown.
