Our day started the same as yesterday with breakfast at the hotel before packing our day bags and getting ready for the day. We wanted to go check out the southern beaches and headed down the hillbto catch a bus. We ended up stopping at a bus station close to our hotel and realized that we had somehow timed it perfectly as a bus was coming in 5 minutes. We had not previously planned to go to Elia beach but we checked our map and thought why not let a go there! So we hopped on and took the drive through the heart of the island before descending down the steep rolling hills to the southern coast. When we got there our eyes were treated with a big stretch of white sandy beach and blue skies and plenty of room to set up shop for the day! We initially planned on beach hopping for the afternoon but the shuttle boats didn't seem to be running frequently. So we set up our towels and spent a nice afternoon on the beach taking advantage of our last beach day of the trip. The wind was forecasted as a northerly so we thought we would be fairly shaded on the south coast but it was still quite as per usual in Mykonos!
We got back to our hotel in the evening and decided to stick around and work on more of the bread and cheese we had and finish off the bottle of wine! Altogether it was a very nice relaxing day and a good way to finish off our time in Mykonos and the Greek Islands!
Tomorrow we take the long boat ride to Athens in the afternoon and start the last keg of our trip!
