Lovely beach house 5 mins from the beach
Posted Jun 9, 2014
Had a great holiday here during the 1st week of June 2014. The owners were extremely friendly and welcoming upon our arrival and throughout the week. They picked us up and took us back to the airport and were kind enough to give us a lift into Mykonos Town one afternoon.
The beach houses were in a great location with 4 beaches within walking distance. Agia Anna beach, the nearest beach to Almyra (5 mins walk), is a lovely, relaxing beach with a brilliant Taverna with traditional Greek food. Also, Paraga Beach is a nice sandy beach worth going to and the Tasos Taverna there was the best food we had during our trip. I would advise against going to Platys Gialos Bay as the beach is too busy and the food not as good and more expensive!
We originally didn't have any form of transport but ended up hiring a quad bike for a few days. Was only 30 euros to hire and was a quick and easy way of getting around. This allowed us to explore the island a bit. Super Paradise Beach is definitely worth a visit. Beautiful sand and clear sea. I've never been to the Caribbean, but this must be pretty close to what it looks like!
Mykonos Town is also worth going to. Only a 10 minute drive and lovely shops and tavernas. It is a maze walking around the streets so you will get lost at some point but can always find a way your way out!
If you're looking for a relaxing week on a beach with good traditional Greek food and nice people, this is a great place to stay.
