3 stops in Mykonos
You might think that the nature of Mykonos is not really interesting as it is all about some dry hills with stones, wild flowers and aromatic herbs. Well there are some spots that have particular interest, which you wouldn’t even imagine that could be found in Mykonos, like, for example, the lake at Marathi or the beach scenery of Choulakia that doesn’t follow the “golden sandy beach” rules of Mykonos. Here are 3 stops in Mykonos island for the nature lovers.
Choulakia Beach. Easily accessible from the Chora of Mykonos, the beach called Choulakia looks as if it came out of another planet’s landscape. The rocks and the pebbles at this protected area- keep in mind that you are not allowed to take a single stone with you- create an out-of-this-island atmosphere. You can swim at Choulakia beach where the sea depths are particularly interesting.
Marathi Lake. On your way to Panormos beach, you will be amazed as you will see a vast water basin. This is actually an artificial lake, made just in 1992 to collect rain water and supply the island, especially during the summer months, when the demand in water is really high. It is well protected from pollution and gathers the water from the surrounding hills.
East Mykonos. At the east part of Mykonos island, you will find the area of Prophet Ilias which is of course the highest spot on the island and the beach of Merchia. This is one of the best kept beach secrets of Mykonos. Some trees offer shadow, whereas the beach is unspoilt, unorganized allowing you to enjoy the real natural shore environment of Mykonos.
The island of Mykonos has its very own and absolutely authentic Cycladic natural beauty. Visitors of the island will find, beyond these 3 nature lovers stops in Mykonos island, even more to discover the wild yet genuine natural spots of the island.
