GREECE

MYKONOS

Vivacious, Hedonic, Bohemian

 

Surrounded by turquoise blue waters and lavish sand beaches, the Greek island of Mykonos is one of our favorite summer destinations.  It’s the ultimate bohemian paradise with a well deserved reputation as one of the world's top party destinations.  Chic jetsetters from around the world come together to revel in the nightlife, wander through picturesque Greek architecture, and savor the delicious local cuisine.  Its energy is undeniable, but also provides a tranquil escape to lay back and unwind under the Mediterranean sun

...whether or not dance parties past sunrise are your thing.

Weather

Hot, dry summers and mild winters, Mykonos is known as the “island of the winds” so a lot of the time, it’s a very windy place. However, during peak summer season the weather gets so hot that the wind actually feels good!

When to Go

High season is during summer months from June to September.  The rest of the year, most restaurants and bars shut down and the island is extremely quiet.

Getting There

Arriving by Air: MYK, located about 15 minutes from Mykonos Town, is serviced by domestic flights from Athens and direct flights from a handful of other European cities.  There is no public transportation from the airport, but most hotels offer a shuttle service and there are taxis available to take you to your destination.

Arriving by Sea: Ferries are a cheaper option, but the journey takes much longer.  There is a ferry that runs from Athens that takes anywhere between 3.5 and 5 hours (vs. the flight that is only 30-40 minutes).  There are also ferries to Mykonos that run from the surrounding Cycladic islands.  For example, there is a ferry from Santorini that takes approximately 8 hours.
