  1. Party at Paradise Beach

Mykonos is famous worldwide for its vibrant nightlife. Many people come here only for the famous parties around the island. One of the best spots to party is at Paradise Beach! Here you can even start partying during the day. Once the sun sets, things get really wild though! A Party at Paradise beach is one of our favorite things to do in Mykonos for all party animals!

Meet like-minded people from all over the world and dance your feet away in the sand and right in front of the ocean. The feeling of a party at the beach is like no other and you will probably never want to go into a real club afterwards. But if you do, no worries – if you head into town, you can keep partying all day and night!

Little Venice is probably one of the most popular areas around the island, especially in the afternoon when the sun starts setting. This area has come to its name thanks to the many little houses that are built right on the water. These houses were mostly built in the 18th century by shipping merchants.

Today, the houses have turned into numerous little cafés and restaurants with probably some of the best views you can get around the island while sipping on your coffee (or wine!). You can sit relaxed on the edge of the water and simply feel the spirit of the sea. During sunset, however, these front-row seats are very popular so make sure to get there early. The sunsets seen from Little Venice will be some of the most beautiful you will ever witness, we promise! Thus, watching the sunset in Little Venice is one of the best things to do in Mykonos!

Our favorite activities in Tenerife

Tenerife is a true paradise for outdoor adventure lovers. We went with part of our team to visit Tenerife to get to know this island where we now also provide some great sea tours. As Tenerife has much more to offer than just sea tours, we’d like to share our favorite must-do activities in Tenerife.

Hiking with a local guide is a must!

Our colleague Nathalie already wrote a nice article about the best things to do in Tenerife. In fact, most of the things we did while visiting this wonderful island are already listed there.

You can find our must-do activities in Tenerife here:

1. Hiking

We love nature, and not only the sea, so we decided to explore the North Western part of the island a bit, by foot. Cao, a local guide from Anaga Experiences, took us for a 3-hour hike in the stunning Anaga mountains. We highly recommend hiking with a guide as you’ll get to know so much about the local culture, nature and everything you want to know. Surely must-do activities in Tenerife for mountain lovers!

Kayaking can be done all year round!

2. Kayaking

In Tenerife, there are several kayak tours. There are two in Los Cristianos, one to go find wild dolphins, which Lianne did and tells us about here. And one to go snorkeling with sea turtles. We choose to do one to explore the impressive Anaga mountains from a different perspective, from Playa de Las Teresitas. We’ll share our experience soon, here on the blog.
