Mykonos is Open for Business!
Over the last few weeks it’s been almost impossible to open a newspaper, watch TV, or read anything online without hearing some mention of Greece. And it’s mostly been negative. Greece’s involvement in the Eurozone crisis and relationship with the EU has been the source of lots of negative press reporting and all sorts of dubious claims as to what is actually happening here. Some media outlets have even gone as far as to suggest that you should avoid going to Greece for your holidays this summer. This is simply not true, Greece is the perfect destination for your summer holidays this year, perhaps more than ever, and we’d like to set the record straight on a few things. So read on…

Ftelia Restaurant and Alemagou
Two must-visit new and improved beach bar restaurants on Ftelia Beach are Alemagou Restaurant and Ftelia Restaurant, which is appropriately owned by a couple of laid back wind and kite surfers. Ftelia beach is known for its water sports as it typically gets the perfect amount of wind for kite and wind surfing.
Alemagou is located right on the beach and brings together elements of the sea with an organically inspired décor setting the trend for this new age taverna. The menu takes well-loved traditional Greek recipes and just like the environment, interprets them with a modern twist. Ftelia Restaurant is perched a little above the beach and you can enjoy sweeping views of the sea and appreciate the quirky chilled-out ambience the staff and owners help create. The kitchen serves up island favorites, fresh salads and seafood inspired by Mediterranean and Italian cuisine. The mandatory dress code is beachwear casual!
