Holidays to Mykonos

This glamorous Greek island is one of the group known as the Cyclades, which also includes Santorini, Naxos and Ios. Holidays to Mykonos promise sandy beaches, whitewashed villages and cosmopolitan nightlife. It’s perfect for lazy days on the golden beaches and swimming in the Aegean Sea, before heading to a waterfront restaurant for a laid-back dinner. And if you’re not ready to call it a night after that, you can always head for a cocktail or two, or perhaps a late-night club by the beach. Mykonos holidays are ideal whether you’re here with the kids, are having a group break with friends, or want to fire up the romance with a special partner.

Thousands of sun-seekers flock to the island every year in search of sandy shores and blazing sunshine. Super Paradise (a favourite among celebrities in Mykonos Town) is popular among the younger crowd, who come here for the party vibes. Platis Gialos is a perfect spot for families, while the unspoiled secluded Agios Sostis beach is ideal if you’re seeking total seclusion. It’s worth noting that beaches in the north are usually less busy than those in the south, but you can expect turquoise waters wherever you go. 

Sitting pretty in the beating heart of the island is Matoyianni Street, in Chora. This maze of streets is bustling with designer boutiques, jewellery makers, and souvenir shops, as well as a host of chic bars, restaurants and nightclubs that stay open into the early hours. During the summer months, most shops and markets are open until midnight, so you can make the most of the balmy weather. If you’re a dedicated retail therapy lover then make sure you load up a Thomas Cook Cash Passport with Euros before you go, so you can lock into the best rate and have even more spending money during your Mykonos holiday.

If you’re looking for laid-back nightlife or all-night parties, you’re in luck. As the sun sets, partygoers will want to head for Paradise and Super Paradise beaches where late-night clubs and international DJs await. If you’d prefer a quieter evening, Little Venice in Mykonos Town the place for you; it’s a charming cobbled area with lots of lovely restaurants on the water’s edge.

Mykonos is best for…

Party people: Let international DJs be your guide at the parties on Paradise Beach. 

Beach fans: Choose your favourite spot along Mykonos’ famous golden shoreline to soak up the Mediterranean sunshine. 

Scenery lovers: With its whitewashed buildings, cobbled streets and turquoise waters, Mykonos is a perfect photo opportunity waiting to happen. 


Weather & climate

Temperature: 9-26°C 

The island may be slightly breezier than some of the other Greek islands, but you can still expect a typical Mediterranean climate with hot summers and mild winters. That breeze takes the edge off the summer temperatures, too, making it more comfortable.

In spring and autumn, temperatures are firmly in the early 20s; it’s a great time for sightseeing. The mercury rises to the high 20s and early 30s in July and August. There’s some welcome relief from the heat, though, thanks to the island’s Cyclades setting and the meltemi winds. 


Getting around

By taxi: They may not be the cheapest way to get around, but taxis are definitely a convenient option. There are no taxi meters; fares are fixed depending on your destination, so be sure to establish a price in advance.

By bus: The island has two main bus stations, and you can catch a ride to the most popular beaches and villages on the island. Tickets are cheap, and the buses run regularly during peak season.

By kaiki: Want to take the scenic route? Hop aboard a kaiki (small boat) and sail over to the beaches on the southern and western coast of the island. You’ll find schedule and ticket information at the travel agencies on the port. It’s a must-do on any Mykonos holiday.


Events

Mykonos Summer Festival: When summer arrives, the island takes the festival spirit to the next level with a series of open-air concerts, theatrical performances, and art exhibitions, making it a great location for culture lovers.

Xlsior Festival: Join thousands of party-people from all over the world as they descend upon the island for one of the hottest (and biggest) LGBT summer festivals. It’s loud, it’s proud, and it’s fabulous!

Harvest Festival: Every September at the Agricultural Museum, you can enjoy a taste of real local culture. Expect food, wine, and storytelling; and don’t leave without sampling the fresh oven bakes.
