Skorpois, Mykonos

On our first full day in Mykonos we met up with our friends Richard and Stephanie who had booked a cabana at Skorpois. Stephanie is super organised so had booked these literally two months in advance and I’m so glad she did. We had the best spot at the beach club, perfect vantage point to people watch and importantly out of the wind. Skorpios is absolutely stunning and I could easily see why it had recently been bought by Soho House Group. It has a very similar laid back, chic aesthetic. Sunday is far and away their busiest day, they reckon in the evening there is several thousand people at the open air night club. Thankfully at midday it’s much more sedate. Beautiful cabana boys and girls bring you drinks and food and it really is idilic. The sunset in the evening there was stunning, very instagrammable.

Koursaros, Mykonos

Our first night in Mykonos we went for dinner at Koursaros. I’d seen the restaurant recommended by my friend Zach on Facebook, who described it as literally one of the best meals he’d ever had in his life, quite the recommendation. The restaurant itself was really funky and laid back, with a very cool chic vibe.  I started with braised octopus and JP had the sea urchin. Both looked great when they arrived, so we shared each others. The octopus was perfectly cooked, still soft and yielding with a really meaty texture. The sea urchin was beautifully fresh and tasted wonderfully of the sea. For mains we both had lamb which was delicious, just perfectly blushing pink in the middle. Lovely wine list, but like most of the rest of Mykonos, somewhat expensive. I’d definitely go back, lovely meal, but it’s not cheap by any stretch of the imagination.
