    Hi Abby,
    I really enjoyed your post about Mykonos a while back. I’m debating visiting either Mykonos or Santorini in the off season (next month) and would love your opinion about the best destination this time of year. I’m a single male and I am totally fine with peace and quiet, but would prefer some people out and about and a glimpse of night life. Thoughts?

      Hi Joe,
      I’d say it would depend on when you are planning to go on your trip – if it’s in November and those two islands are your options I would probably say Santorini over Mykonos. A lot of things like shops & restaurants have already begun to shut down for the season at this point and if you go after October I would remind you to be prepared to not have good beach weather. That being said, it is a nice quiet time on the islands – night life is much busier in the summer and during tourist seasons. Have fun!
