We stayed at Christina Studios. Wasn't anything fancy, but was in a great location. We only had one day on the island and we spent it walking around and eating.
|We arrived in the evening and spent our first night enjoying some dinner by the sea.|
|For breakfast we found a super cute cafe called Lile Bistro-Cafe.|
|The waitress showed us how Greek coffee is made.|
|For pre-lunch drinks (i.e. sparkling waters) we walked up to a hotel bar (La Veranda) with fabulous views of the island.|

Stroll Around Town
FolegandrosDay 2 of our vacation we took a ferry over to the island of Folegandros. Lucky birthday girl that I was, Kevin had planned the entire trip by himself. So I didn't have to struggle through figuring out which ferries to book. If you plan on visiting the Greek Islands you have to make ferry reservations in advance at seajets.gr and apparently it's a bit confusing and frustrating. So thanks Kev!
The landscape of Folegandros is very different from Mykonos. It was much more arid and desert like, but no less beautiful. We stayed two nights in the village Chora at a gorgeous hotel called Anemomilos Apartments. I highly recommend staying here for its spectacular views, pool, and scenic breakfast served on your balcony. We had a lovely time exploring the island. We took the bus over to Angali Beach to take a swim, meandered around the villages of Chora and Ano Meria, and walked up to the Church of Panagia for sunset views.
