If you're looking for a destination that combines stunning beaches, luxurious accommodations, and a lively party scene, Mykonos is the place to be. This famous Greek island is a popular tourist spot, attracting visitors from all over the world.
During my three days in Mykonos, I enjoyed delicious cuisine, breathtaking sunsets, and unforgettable parties. Whether you're looking for relaxation or fun at the beach, this Mykonos travel guide has everything you need to plan an amazing summer trip.
Let's explore Mykonos together...
Mykonos is one of the most visited islands in Greece.
Part of the Cyclades group in the Aegean Sea, it is well known to be a Greek party island where the wealthiest go to spend their summer holiday in private villas, luxury beach clubs and expensive restaurants.
Mykonos island is not only for VIPs, as many think.
Mykonos is for anyone who wants to spend the day on the golden sand and swim in the crystal blue water.
Explore Chora (the main town), and take hundreds of stunning pictures in little alleys among whitewashed houses. There are so many things to do in Mykonos that you won't have time to do them all.
Are you in?
To choose how many days you need in Mykonos, think of why you want to visit it in the first place.
You can plan a day trip to Mykonos from Santorini or the other islands nearby by ferry to see the main town Chora, but if you want to explore more, I think three days in Mykonos are enough if you rent a car to explore and move freely.
In my Mykonos Guide, you will find everything you need to know to make your Mykonian holiday the best of your life.
Is Mykonos worth visiting?
Mykonos is a Greek island known for its stunning beaches, amazing restaurants where to enjoy delicious seafood, and vibrant party scene. It is a very popular destination for tourists.
However, it is important to remember that Mykonos can be more expensive than other destinations in Greece.
It is comparable to other popular European cities, but you can easily visit it on a budget if you follow my advice.
Mykonos attracts a diverse crowd, from families, and young people looking for fun, to wealthy individuals and celebrities. While it is a popular honeymoon spot, the island is perfect for whoever is seeking for the fun and lively atmosphere during the summer months.
I visited Mykonos on a two weeks Greek holiday, and we went from Athens to Mykonos by ferry. A ferry to Mykonos from Athens is not expensive, and you can get there in a couple of hours.

best time to travel to mykonos
Mykonos in summer gets incredibly crowded, mainly in July and August.
These are the two months to avoid because it can be extremely hot and crowded.
You have to queue for a long time to get inside every bar and restaurant, and you won't find a single spot at any beach clubs if you don't get there very early.
My advice is to visit Mykonos in June and September when everything is open, the water has the perfect temperature to refresh you, and you don't need to queue or book any restaurants one week in advance like during the high season.
If swimming is not so important for you, you can visit Mykonos also during May and October when temperatures are cooler.
Still, you can easily spend a day at the beach (the water will be cold), most restaurants are open, accommodations and flights are much cheaper than in the summer, and the island is almost empty.
Winter in Mykonos is cold and windy, I visited Mykonos in September, and it was perfect.
Is Mykonos an expensive island?
If you wonder how much a trip to Mykonos costs, keep in mind there are plenty of budget hotels and "tavernas" to enjoy a delicious meal as locals do at the expense of 10/15 euros with a drink.

Wifi in Mykonos is available in almost every bar and restaurant and, of course, in every hotel.
If you come from a European country, you will probably have free roaming with your sim contract; if you come from outside Europe, you should get a pay-as-you-go sim card.

The currency in Greece is the Euro
What is the language spoken in Mykonos?

There are ATMs in every little town.
You can pay by credit card in most shops, restaurants, and hotels, but some little bars still require cash payments.
Mykonos, like every Greek island, is pretty safe. Still, like in every tourist area, I advise you always to be vigilant of what is happening around you and always purchase travel insurance.
Don't leave unattended valuables on the beach; close your window and door accommodation, and leave your valuables in your room safe if you have one.
