Greek Sojourn - Mykonos Beach

Mykonos is loaded with great beaches. Although I have nothing against the beach resorts, parties or the surrounding night life, I feel they miss a little something of the Asian beaches (say the rustic charm Malaysian beaches or the friendly, ever smiling locals of Philippine beaches).

 

And now some more sunset timelapse from Singapore.

I would rather wander the countryside than sit at the beach. Nice shot, though.
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Michael.
Still a lovely image, Ayush! I enjoyed the sunset - interesting to see clouds moving in different directions!
Ayush Basu: I like the image too, the view of this place, even though this kind of beach is not my thing, Elizabeth.

I believe I would like to explore with a sea kayak, Ayush...it looks inviting.
Ayush Basu: I am a bit more accustomed to less rocky beaches but I can understand the appeal you feel, Ray.

That is an interesting comment, Ayush
Ayush Basu: That was what I felt at that point of time, Lisl.
C'est vrai que la plage ne semble pas vraiment grande ..dommage .
Bonne journée
Ayush Basu: Thank you for the comment, Claudine. Have a good weekend.

It looks fine but anywhere with a drink or party culture I don't want to be at..
Ayush Basu: I think I can understand that, Chris.

Superbe vue !
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Martine.
Ce cet endroit, la vue doit être très belle.
Bonne journée
Ayush Basu: I did like the view from there, Pascale. Have a good weekend ahead.
These places hold no appeal to me but they offer great value holidays in the sun!
Ayush Basu: I did like the ramble around the town and some photo opportunities that it offered, Bill.

This reminds me of holidays and mosquitoes Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Perhaps more so in Asia, Chad?

I've never been to any of the places you mention but my impression from what I've read is that you're right. There are reports which people go to and they never venture outside the gates to see the real life of whatever country they are in. I like the front gardens on the properties along the water line - no work required smile
Ayush Basu: It is quite different in the Asian beaches especially of the Philippines and Indonesia, Alan. I do liked it there.

I enjoyed the sunset; the trains go very quickly!
Ayush Basu: The timelapse does have that effect, almost gives a comical effect, Alan. Thank you for the comment.
Blue and white, so totally Greek!
Ayush Basu: Yes, isn't it?
Because of commercialisation it all looks crowded in doesn't it, rather than a nice open space. Great time lapse.
Ayush Basu: I am not sure if those houses there are private residential or commercial, but I agree, there is a strong commercial tone to it, Brian. Thank you for appreciating the time lapse.
Looks like a pretty barren environment!
Ayush Basu: I think apart from tourism, there is little other potential, Tom.
The buildings across the bay have their feet wet. The water is beautiful. I cannot comment on the beaches as I have been to none you speak of.
Ayush Basu: Yes, I thought so too, I wonder if they have a heavy rainy season and whether there are floodings during high tides and such, Mary.

This looks like great place to be on a vacation. (However personally I don't like crowded places..)
Wonderful view.
Ayush Basu: I do not like crowded beaches too, Astrid, but I do prefer the ones from Philippines and Malaysia, they tend to be laidback and one can get some peace and quiet really doing what they want to, instead of wild, constant parting.

The beach looks as a bit too touristy for my liking.
Ayush Basu: My thoughts too, CherryPie.
All that white must really be important for reflecting the sun to keep things cooler, Ayush?!
Ayush Basu: Yes that is quite a lot of white indeed, Ginnie. I think you are right about keeping cool.
I like those pastel colors...
Ayush Basu: I am pleased you do, Larry. Thank you.

Ah, this is the part of Mykonos where the lobster lands in the pot. Almost Venice-like, with places right on the sea.

Last time it was the train, but this time someone was in the pool and also the way lights go on and off n that building.
Ayush Basu: If I recall correctly, it is only a wading pool. The user seemed to be a rather energetic swimmer, isn't it? smile

Ayush Basu: Yes, I do not like this beach all that much but the view overall seemed nice to capture, Elaine.
