Mykonos is probably the other most well known island in Greece (along with Santorini).  We had not originally planned to go there but after poring over the spaghetti-like ferry schedules, we discovered that it was pretty much essential to go to Mykonos if we wanted to continue our journey east towards Turkey.  And it turns out that we were really glad we did!  All of the stories that I had heard about Mykonos referred to it as the party island, full of mega beach clubs (which we aren’t really into) but we found that there are also some really beautiful beaches that aren’t full of techno music.  Our hotel was right near one of the out-of-the way beaches called Ornos, but we could hop in a water taxi that circled the island and stopped at all of the other beaches.  We couldn’t decide which one to get off on, so we kept riding it until we got to the last beach, Elia.  We were a bit confused when we saw a crowd of 20 buff guys in speedos when we got off the boat, and we quickly learned that Elia was known as the gay party beach.  We walked down the beach to a more mixed area and enjoyed swimming and relaxing near the crystal clear blue water for the rest of the day.

We had a chance to check out the famous windmills before heading to Ikaria, our last stop in the Greek islands.
