At most gourmet restaurants you will find an incredible wine and champagne list. It is a good opportunity to try some rare labels and the chef will help you choose the perfect one to accompany your meal.
Fantastic weather all year long
The island of Mykonos is commonly referred to as “the island of winds”. Due to the geographical location of Mykonos, in summer Meltemi wind blows from the north and hits the north side of the island. Meltemi is actually a blessing for the Greek islands, because it keeps the temperature lower than the mainland. During the warmer months of July and August, temperatures in the mainland can easily reach 40-43 degrees Celsius, while in Mykonos the temperatures are 5-6 degrees lower.
Like most of the Greek islands, Mykonos has a humid climate during the winter due to the sea but rains are rare and the sun shines 300 days a year. Winter temperatures are on average between 8-12 degrees Celsius. In spring and autumn the temperatures are very mild with an average of 20-25 degrees Celsius, making Mykonos a perfect destination for travelers who want to avoid very hot weather.
Make sure you take a good camera with you because you will find out Mykonos has a lot of beautiful landscapes and views to take nice photos!
Little Venice, the Windmills, the virgin beaches, the endless blue Ocean – are only some of the most photographed spots in Mykonos. Don’t miss the sunset as the Cycladic sunset is famous to the world. If you rent a villa, make sure it has the right orientation so that you can enjoy the fabulous views to the sea, the sunset and the beach from your balcony.
Crystal-clear waters in every single beach
Mykonos has beaches of any kind – organized or virgin, sandy or pebbled, crowded or remote, calm or windy. But they all have one thing in common: their clean, transparent waters.
The sea all around the island is perfect for swimming, snorkeling or diving.
