Your guide to Mikonos
All About Mykonos
Legend has it that Mykonos’ large rock formations are petrified bodies of the Giants, lured to their defeat by Hercules. But even the Greek gods would be impressed by what the 33-square-mile isle, about a three-hour ferry ride north from Santorini, has become. As part of the Cyclades islands in the Aegean Sea, Mykonos may be best known for its nightlife, but its appeal runs so much deeper than its glamorous party scene. The Island of the Winds is also a magnet for water sport enthusiasts, while families are drawn to its shallow beaches and relaxing resorts and foodies can get lost in Aegean specialities like kopanistí cheese. But no matter what your taste, Mykonos effortlessly welcomes everyone with a sense of serenity, thanks to its pretty whitewashed homes and impressive sea views.
The best time to stay in a holiday rental in Mikonos
The temperate Mediterranean climate is no doubt one of the biggest draws of the Greek islands. Year-round, temperatures hang roughly between the low 50s and mid 80s Fahrenheit, with the summer months settling comfortably into the 70s and the winter months falling more in the 50s. Fall months tend to be slightly warmer (high 60s to mid 70s) than spring months (high 50s to high 60s), making September and October ideal times to visit, after the peak season crowds have left. While a beach chic wardrobe dominates every season, don’t underestimate the importance of a light sweater to fend off the sea breezes. And think comfort when it comes to footwear; after all, you’ll need shoes that can tackle both the hot sand and uneven cobblestone streets.
Top things to do in Mikonos
Whitewashed buildings, winding marble streets, colorful doors, and of course, bright bougainvillea adorning every corner — the main town (also called “Chora” or “Hora”) is the idyllic Greek isle picture postcard come to life. Don’t miss stylish Matoyánni Street or the lively waterfront, where you’re bound to run into a pelican that’s the descendant of Mykonos’ unofficial mascot, Pétros the Pelican.
Also known as Alefkántra, this 18th-century district is filled with grand mansions overhanging the sea — and is also one of the most romantic spots to watch the sunset beyond sea views.
Perched atop a hill, the windmills — or Kato Mili — were built in the 16th century by Venetians to mill wheat, but now stand proudly as one of the island’s iconic landmarks. Don’t miss the black-and-white speckled pigeons hanging out in the windows.
Visiting sun-soaked beaches is the essential Mykonos experience. Closest to town is Agios Stefanos, known for its water sports. The clear, shallow waters of Platis Gialos draw families, while the island’s largest beach, Elia Beach, attracts nudists. Paradise Beach is synonymous with festive nightlife, while the trendy Ornos offers more of a resort-like atmosphere.
