Scenic Symi island port stars in 2022 Eurovision song video

The colourful neoclassical mansions of Gialos port on Symi island provide a  dramatic backdrop for singer Amanda Tenfjord and actor Nicolas Melachrinidis, seen in two screenshots from the music video for Die Together

 

Scenery to die for: The official music video for Die Together, Greece’s entry in the 2022  Eurovision Song Contest, has us wishing we could hop on a boat and sail to Symi.

The island’s port town, Gialos,  plays a supporting role in the video, which stars singer Amanda Georgiadis Tenfjord and actor Nicolas Melachrinidis. But for us, the picturesque harbour and the Gialos hillsides lined with colourful neoclassical mansions were total scene-stealers, capturing our attention far more than the music and the video’s two performers. 

Don’t read us wrong — we do like Amanda Tenfjord’s song. But the video’s background scenery is what really wows us. Watching the 3-minute film, we can’t help but imagine how breathtaking it must be to sail into Gialos and see the impressive surroundings in person. We hope we get that opportunity sometime.

 

 

The Eurovision Song Contest gets underway May 10 in Turin, Italy.

You can view the Die Together video below. To see more of Symi, scroll past the video to find direct links to several articles and island travel guides we have collected, as well as to a few Instagram accounts that feature wonderful photos of Symi sights and scenery.

Editor’s note: This post is still under construction, as we continue to add more activities and attractions

 

Beyond the bars and beaches: Mykonos may be famous for its beaches, boutiques and nightlife, but there’s a lot more to do on the island than just sunbathe, swim, party or shop ’til you drop. Activities abound for visitors, whether they’re travelling solo, as a couple, with family or in a group — either visiting the island just for the day on a cruise stop, or staying on Mykonos for a few days or an extended holiday.

Want to go sightseeing? There’s a wide variety of guided tours available that will show you scenic off the main tourist path parts of the island either on foot, by bicycle, on horseback, or in a jeep or other vehicle.

Are you a foodie who’d like to take a cooking class, taste traditional Greek dishes, or learn about olive oil or cheese making? Or are you more interested in sampling local craft beer or wine, either at a craft brewery or local vineyard, or on a private scenic tour? There’s a number of tours focussed on food and wine, as well as specialized cooking classes and demonstrations, wine or beer tastings, and more.

Looking for fitness, fun outdoor activities or watersports?  You can choose from kayaking; horseback riding; windsurfing, kitesurfing & boarding; yoga, pilates & other fitness classes; go-karting; and boat, sailboat and yacht tours and excursions galore.

If you’re a history and culture buff,  the ruins and archaeological site of Delos island — a UNESCO World Heritage Site — are a must-visit, and easily reached by boats that depart from a pier near the town hall in Mykonos Town. There’s several interesting museums, along with a municipal art gallery and a number of excellent private art galleries that showcase works by Greek and international artists.

And for evening entertainment, how about watching a movie under the stars at the Cine Manto outdoor cinema in the heart of Mykonos Town?

Below, and on page 2 of this post, we spotlight those and other top Mykonos attractions and activities:

 

 

A brand new arrival

Padel Mykonos padel tennis facility

From April until the end of October, the Delos Tours boats make daily return trips (weather conditions permitting), and visitors can either buy €22 per person tickets for just the boat transfer so they can see Delos at their own pace, or they can purchase €60 per person tickets for organized tours that include the boat trip, entrance to the site, and a guided tour of the ruins by a certified tourist guide.

Mykonos 2022: DJ and party schedules, regular music events and season closing dates

Share

With fall around the corner, the Greek Islands are moving into shoulder season  — and even on busy Mykonos, the atmosphere is becoming a bit quieter, with a noticeably more chill and relaxed vibe than the frenetic and crowded party months of July and August.

As happens every September, clubs and restaurants gradually begin to close as the tourist crowds slowly thin out. Sometimes they provide advance notice of their season finale parties or closing dates, but sometimes venues shutter their doors with little or no prior announcement.

Below is a listing of popular beach clubs, nightclubs and restaurants that have already wrapped up their operations or that have announced their season-ending party celebrations.

On page 2 of this post, you can see our at-glance roundup of regular DJ shows, parties and live music events that took place on Mykonos this summer on each day of the week, along with some of the summer event calendars for major clubs including Alemagou, Cavo Paradiso, Ftelia Pacha, Sanctus, SantAnna, Super Paradise, The Sanctuary, Tropicana and Void. They will give you an idea of what you might expect to find next year, if you happen to visit Mykonos during 2023.

Mykonos: What’s new for 2022

Share

The Little Venice area of Mykonos

A view of the Little Venice seafront of Mykonos Town

 

 

— Updated on June 19 2022 —

 

The Island of the Winds: Much like the dry Meltemi winds that blast the island every summer, the winds of change blow strongly on Mykonos, bringing a flurry of brand-new hotels, restaurants, bars and shops for each fresh travel season.

This cycle of constant change and renewal is an integral part of what makes Mykonos so vibrant, exciting and enthralling — it ensures there are always plenty of new places popping up where visitors can explore and enjoy the latest Greek and international trends in design, decor, fashion, food, drink and entertainment.

Here are snapshots of many of the notable changes and newcomers that Mykonos visitors will discover during the 2022 travel season.

 

Cubic Hotel on Mykonos

Opening July 13 at Ornos beach, Cubic Hotel is an adults-only boutique property consisting of just 11 rooms and suites with private pools. Each of the luxury  accommodations “has been designed in a contemporary manner, blending cubic style with multiple dimensions and traditional Cycladic architecture with modern twists,” the hotel website says.  

 

Zuma Mykonos

After two years as a seasonal pop-up situated in the ultra-luxe Cavo Tagoo Hotel, the Japanese restaurant Zuma Mykonos has a new home all its own. The opening of the new premises — carved into the face of a rugged rock cliff a short distance down the coastal road from Cavo Tagoo — marks the debut of “a first of its kind lifestyle concept” by the high-end international restaurant chain, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. “This creative, multi-purpose destination is a new concept within the [Zuma restaurant] portfolio featuring a restaurant, lounge and bar, sleek infinity pool, day beds and resident DJ. Zuma Mykonos is set to be the first of many other similar venues unveiled in international destinations in the years to come, as Zuma enters a new era,” the Zuma website explains.  Zuma Mykonos officially opens for dinner service on July 14, while its spectacular sea- and sunset-view infinity swimming pool will open on July 18. 

 

Billionaire Mykonos

Italian celebrity entrepreneur Flavio Briatore is bringing his exclusive Billionaire lifestyle club to Mykonos this summer. Self-described as famous for its “extraordinary artistic performances with a superb dining experience,” as well as a “thrilling” late-night after party,  Billionaire Mykonos will operate in an elegant former mansion near the small Agia Anna harbour beach in Mykonos Town (in the premises formerly occupied by the Hondos Center fashion retail shop). Billionaire Mykonos hasn’t announced its official opening date, but it is expected to open its doors as soon as July 15, and has been heavily promoting a “coming soon” campaign on social media.  Billionaire Mykonos made news headlines in Greece in July when it cancelled online reservations for tables of four persons or less, explaining in an email to affected customers that the venue has been designed to “accommodate groups of 6,8,10 and 12 people or more”  only. Rumours had been circulating that the club would require a minimum spend of €50,000 per table, but news reports said the minimum spend in the restaurant will be €300 per person on food alone — with alcoholic drinks not included in that amount.

 

Cocco restaurant on Mykonos

Doors opened in early July at Cocco Mykonos, a small Italian bistro situated at the Little Venice seafront of Mykonos Town. A project of the Belvedere Hotel, Cocco occupies cozy, intimate spaces in an historic 200-year-old building on the waterfront.  Cocco’s menu “offers small yet inspired bites for a leisurely drink, while refreshing salads alongside delectable raw and marinated meat and fish dishes will ground a dreamy evening in earthly delights. Light-as-a-cloud pizzas, straight from our wood-fired oven, classic antipasti and rich pasta dishes will round out an unforgettable Italian experience,” the restaurant’s website says. Cocco’s hours of operation are 6 p.m. to 2 a.m.

 

Bar & Co Mykonos

A stroll down Ag. Anargiron street near Little Venice will lead you to a tiny new cocktail and coffee joint, Bar & Co, which opened in early July. It’s a friendly spot to grab a coffee beverage or a hand-crafted cocktail to enjoy either at the bar, or “on the go.”  Besides classic cocktails, Bar & Co serves beer, shots and drinks.

 

Jayont Mykonos restaurant

Jayont coffee brunch & more is a new dining spot in Ano Mera village, situated steps from the historic Panagia Tourliani Monastery.  Jayont specializes in coffees and  breakfast/brunch fare, but is open til late at night for dining and cocktails.  Menu items are available for take-away, so it’s a convenient place to pick up drinks and snacks while on the way to Elia, Agrari, Kalafatis or Kalo Livadi beaches.

 

Mantri Mykonian Resto on Mykonos

Mantri Mykonian Resto is another newcomer situated near Panagia Tourliani monastery in Ano Mera village. If the name seems familiar, perhaps it’s because it’s the new Mykonos sibling of the Mantri restaurant that has been operating in the Athens suburb of Glyfada since 1977.  Mantri offers a Mediterranean menu highlighting quality meat and charcoal barbecue dishes, as well as slow-cooked Greek dishes.  The menu, with prices, can be viewed on the restaurant’s website. Mantri Mykonian Resto is open daily from 12:30 p.m. to midnight.

 

Photos of Saltbae Mykonos burger restaurant by Dimitris Koutsoukos

Regular Mykonos visitors will notice a big change at Goumenio Square in Mykonos Town this summer. The popular meat and meze restaurant Familia is gone — its prized location has been acquired by celebrity chef Nusret Gokce and transformed into one of his high-end Saltbae Burger joints. (Gokce brought his world-famous Nusret steakhouse to Mykonos in 2019, and is still packing that place with big-spending customers every night). The Saltbae burger restaurant and bar opened in mid-June, serving a variety of burgers and steak sandwiches at prices starting at €30 and up, along with Oreo, marshmallow and “crazy baklava” shakes costing €19 and €25 respectively.  The restaurant’s signature dish,  the Gold Burger, is a juicy Wagyu Saltbae burger covered in edible 24K gold and smothered in freshly melted cheddar cheese. It is served with seasoned fries and sells for only €150.  

 

Salt & Fire Mykonos steakhouse 2022 season opening announcement

Salt & Fire Steakhouse claims it will offer “the most exclusive dining experience in Mykonos” when it opens June 15 at the Charisma Hotel and Wellness Suites in the island’s Plintri area (near Super Paradise beach). Situated on the patio beside the hotel’s sea view pool, Salt & Fire will have only a handful of tables at which a small number of guests can enjoy Black Angus and Wagyu steaks grilled to perfection over the restaurant’s signature wood fire.

Central Macedonia: A great four-seasons travel destination

Share

This is the lead video in a Central Macedonia tourism campaign that invites visitors to come “do something great.” The promotion includes four additional short films (see below) that will tempt travellers with fabulous photography of great things they can see and do in the region.

 

Greatness abounds: It’s widely known as the historic home of its king, Alexander the Great, in ancient times, but the mainland Greece region of Central Macedonia wants more people to discover that it’s also an incredible place for tourists to visit 365 days a year.

The region already attracts more than 7 million visitors annually, drawn to such internationally-known destinations as the city of Thessaloniki, the holy monasteries at Mount Athos, the beach-blessed Halkidiki peninsulas, and the tallest peak in Greece, Mount Olympus.

But Central Macedonia isn’t even on the radar for countless other people who have been to Greece, or who might be planning to visit, and aren’t aware there’s so much more to the country than Athens and the islands of Mykonos, Santorini, Rhodes. Crete and  Corfu. To show those potential visitors why they should give Central Macedonia a closer look, the region has produced five promotional videos that highlight the vast array of vacation experiences available for all types of travellers and their holiday activity preferences.

With spectacular cinematography, the 2-minute videos showcase some of the region’s magnificent landscapes and natural scenery, exciting outdoor sports and adventure activities, arts and cultural attractions, beautiful beaches, and its traditional and contemporary cuisine. The sheer breadth of the region’s natural and human-created wonders may be an eye-opening surprise to people who aren’t familiar with this part of Greece.

The “Do Something Great” video, posted above, is the primary film for the tourism campaign. Published on YouTube and shared on social media platforms, it provides a general cinematic overview of Central Macedonia’s appealing travel attractions, while four other videos, posted below, shine a spotlight on destination features that appeal to specific visitor pastimes:

♦ Taste the Great! whets viewers’ appetites with images of mouth-watering traditional and contemporary cuisine;

♦ Sun the Great! displays brilliant scenes of gorgeous coastal landscapes to show that “nothing beats a sunny day on the beach”;

♦ Experience the Great! profiles some of the thrilling outdoor activities that sports enthusiasts can pursue, such as: mountain biking; skateboarding; surfing; rock climbing; scuba diving; alpine skiing; boating; and river rafting; and

♦ Admire the Great! spotlights cultural attractions, including: art galleries; museums; historic sites; monuments; memorials; churches, temples and monasteries; and music entertainment. 

 

Each of the videos is well worth watching, and the full series takes only 10 minutes to view. We don’t have a favourite to recommend; although we’ve notched half a dozen viewings for the food film, and at least two apiece for the rest, we enjoyed them all.

If you’re interested in learning more about the region after watching the clips, you’ll find the Central Macedonia travel website (pictured below) is a great place to start your research and holiday planning.
