Sunset Supper, Mykonos

On our final night in Mykonos, we popped back into the pretty painted town.

Just as the sun started slipping closer and closer to the horizon, turning the white houses a gentle golden colour.

We stopped off along the way to say hello to particularly charming locals.

And clambered down into the bay.

Turning our back on Little Venice this time, heading instead to the left.

Caprice’s Sea Satin Market.

A Greek seafood restaurant perched on the rocks, with the waves lapping against its whitewashed walls.

And most importantly, an uninterrupted view of the setting sun.

We took a table on the water’s edge, with the famous windmills standing guard above us.

Unlike the crush of the bars on Little Venice (fun if you’re in the party spirit), here you can find a little room to breathe.

And book a table, which is handy!

We ordered a bottle of wine and a few nibbles.

Bread fresh from the ovens, sitting in olive oil, sprinkled with salt, herbs and olives.

We thought the flowers in the ice bucket were a particularly lovely touch!

Taramasalata and tzatziki.

Courgette fries, covered in a crisp batter and sprinkled with salt.

Searingly hot and begging to be dunked into the cool tzatziki.

Just as the sun longed to be dipped into the cool sea…

We stayed chatting and drinking our wine until the sky turned from pink to indigo.

Strolling in the darkness through the winding streets of the town.

An old favourite (I actually wrote a gyro recipe here!) and a compulsory part of any trip to Greece!

The perfect ending to an incredible trip.

Mykonos is well worth a spot on your Travel To Do List, even if it’s only for a long weekend.

Just a few days there felt like a proper break and I can’t recommend it enough! We stayed at Casa del Mar (which is lovely if you can get a pool villa, but a little out of the way if you’re going to party) and you can get lots of direct flights from London.

Greece remains one of my favourite places in the world and I’ll be back very, very soon!
