Your guide to Mikonos

All About Mykonos

One of the most famous Greek islands in the Aegean Sea, Mykonos is often celebrated for its vibrant summer music scene that attracts world-famous DJs, celebrities, and revelers from across the globe. The island's architecture is instantly recognizable around the world as a Mediterranean paradise, with purple and pink Bougainvillea flowers standing in stark contrast to the white sun-bleached buildings that make the island chains famous. Secluded beaches, historical sites, and streetside cafes that seemingly date back to the island's original inhabitants can all be found along the cobblestone streets of this picturesque Greek isle.

If you are searching for Mykonos's culinary scene, check out the island's capital of Hora, also known as Chora and Mykonos town, where you can find great restaurants, a thriving nightlife scene, and important cultural centers. Or head inland for some mountain biking throughout the island's hilly interior between stops at the more secluded beaches the island offers its visitors.

The best time to stay in a vacation rental in Mikonos

The best time to book your villa in Mykonos depends on whether you’re looking to participate in the lively music or if you’d rather seek seclusion among the sandy beaches. The summer months provide warm temperatures with minimal rainfall, perfect conditions for enjoying the surrounding waters — this season also brings lots of people to Mykonos’ beaches and streets from June through August. September and October are great times to visit as the weather is still pleasant enough to enjoy the beach, and the numbers of visitors drop.

Travel to Mykonos is still viable in the winter. However, temperatures drop and rainfall increases, taking sunbathing and swimming off the table. Be sure to bring jackets and a few layers if you decide to visit during this time.
