Why there’s never been a better time to visit Mykonos

Silver linings. Even pandemics have a few. Summer 2020 has been a terrible season for tourism. But for those able to travel, it’s been a great time to explore destinations that have become a little too popular. Like Mykonos, one of the most glorious Greek islands, but also one of the most crowded, expensive, and commercial. In July, the island was operating at around 20% of its usual high summer capacity — still lively enough to have a buzz, but with plenty of space to discover the island’s more authentically Greek side. On a mission to avoid the overrated, over-priced and over-hyped, I went to check out the new Soho Roc House and The Wild,  the latest entries on the Mykonos hotel scene.
