Mykonos Vacations & Travel Tips

When to Go

Mykonos, like the other Greek Islands, enjoys a Mediterranean climate, with hot sunny days and pleasant evenings from April to October. The rainy season begins around mid-October.

The average high temperature in July and August is around 81 F, although there’s nothing average about Mykonos, including the temperature. Summer tends to get quite hot. Mykonos can be windy in the summer months, with July and August seeing strong northerly winds, known as Meltemi, which help reduce the humidity but tend to blow things around.

The busy season lasts from around Easter through mid-September.  The island is closed to tourists from November to March.

Fast Facts

The name ‘Cyclades’ is derived from the Greek word kiklos, meaning circle. It described how these islands encircled the sacred island of Delos.

The primary material used to whiten the walls of the homes, restaurants, museums, and shops of these islands was lime, an inexpensive local material.

The blue and white buildings on Mykonos mirror the colors of the Greek flag, as well as the vivid blue of the surrounding seas.
