Kalimera! Open the door! Greece is waiting for you…
Mykonos is a fascinating place with history and tradition. If you are looking for a destination to have fun, this is the perfect place to celebrate the Greek Summer.
Mykonos is all you can want from a place where you can spend your Summer vacation: the sensational water, the azure, the glass-finished beaches and the clear water, the restaurants where you can eat everything you want, water sports, day and night parties, the best services at bars and restaurants.
Mykonos is a great destination, whether you want to sunbathe, practice water sports, explore the narrow streets of the capital, or want to party until the sun comes down. You can make day trips to discover the island with a private boat or yacht and enjoy the crystal clear and blue water of the Aegean Sea.
The warmest season in Mykonos is between June and September when it’s sunny, hot and the water is perfect for swimming. Water temperature heats throughout the Summer months and is warmest in August and September. Since most people go to Mykonos for the beaches (and related nightlife) it’s pretty quiet here in May and October though the weather is still quite nice.
The best option is to make your reservation through a travel agency. British Airways offer 7 flights weekly (May–Oct) from Heathrow or London City to Mykonos. Mykonos airport, 3km from town, has taxi service (€15–23 depending on destination) and far less frequent shuttle buses (two public bus stations).
There are many options – rent a car, scooter or ATV. There is a very good option… if you are more and you don’t want to stay with care for various reasons – maybe you want to drink a glass of wine at the beach or you don’t want to drive on the steep roads of the island – you can rent a car with a driver.
