Destination Guide: Mykonos

Mykonos is the Greek island in the Aegean Sea, just southeast of Athens, where all the excitement and fun of Europe comes together. Located in the centre of the Cyclades island group, it is famous around the world for its cosmopolitan atmosphere and has long been a popular destination for travellers looking to explore stunning landscapes, beautiful sunsets, and authentic Greek culture.

Widely known as the Ibiza of Greece, it also offers a plethora of luxurious hotels, award-winning restaurants, designer boutiques, elegant bars, an incredible party scene, and stunning azure waters.

Best time of year to visit Mykonos for a Luxury Travel Experience:


Luxury travel experiences in Mykonos are popular all year-round because of its Mediterranean climate which offers 300 days of sunshine per year. However, although the weather is good for most of the year, we recommend visiting Mykonos during the Greek summer between May and September. The average temperature ranges from 23°C to 26°C at this time of year, although it has been known to rise above 30°C, and you will also get endless opportunities to enjoy the party scene.

If you love swimming and water sports, the best time to go to Mykonos is in July and August. The average sea temperature is a warm 24°C paired with regular cooling breezes that help control temperatures and the humidity.

For cooler weather, arrive in autumn or spring. The weather is still great, but the slightly lower temperatures will allow for different activities to be enjoyed.
