“Three reasons why I won’t go to Mykonos again,” the opinion of an American

Proudly looking at how dynamically the tourist season started this year, industry experts are insisting that an increasing number of people choose another island for their vacation instead of Mykonos.

Despite the fact that we are still at the beginning of summer, the island of the Winds has already managed to “light up” in many negative reports both in our country and abroad. Mostly because of the astronomical prices that tourists have to pay for food or the basic amenities provided to them.

In a new video that has gone viral on the internet, renowned travel blogger “Sunday Travel” lists three reasons she will never take a vacation to Mykonos again in her life. However, it is worth noting that most of the commentators were on her side. Many Greeks agreed that “Mykonos is not the whole of Greece.”

Here they are, these 3 reasons:

  1. Terrible situation in the port. As “Sunday Travel” rightly points out, most islands accept a certain amount of tourists that they can handle. When cruise ships arrive daily in Mykonos with thousands of tourists arriving on the island for just a few hours, this number is impossible to control. As a result, all the lanes of the island are filled (impossible to push through). In addition, you have to wait for hours to sit down at a table. At the same time, tourists who have descended from cruise ships, according to the American, do not respect Mykonos, leave garbage everywhere, and then leave the island as if nothing had happened.
  2. The general climate of Mykonos, which does not suit the average traveler. As a US traveler says, the island is “the playground of the rich”, so if you just want to see something truly “Greek”, you should not go here.
  3. Price. It’s clear and we all know it. Mykonos is the most expensive Greek island, with prices at least twice as high as in other similar places. For this reason, especially this year, more and more travel agencies are offering their audience to visit Paros, Sifnos, Milos or Naxos instead of the cosmopolitan Mykonos.
