After Santorini, Mykonos is probably the most famous island of Greece when it comes to travel and tourism. Keep an eye out for variations of the spelling, including "Mikonos". While the views don't enjoy the same spectacular elevations as those in Santorini, the buildings are equally colorful and possibly offer more variation, if we're honest. You'll find plenty of opportunities to snag a great photo to complement the making of great memories. There are interesting boutiques and galleries all throughout the shopping areas of Mykonos Town (Chora) and you can really get some great food here.

Families and couples seeking a romantic beach destination with a great social atmosphere might enjoy Mykonos, there's also a thriving LGBT scene here. Don't worry if you didn't come to party, it's not obligatory if you're seeking something quieter.

Planning your trip

Mykonos and its northern coasts in particular can be a bit breezy, don't plan on getting here on an inter-island ferry. Instead, plan your island escape well or simply include Mykonos in your cruise itinerary request. There are several cruise lines offering a late departure and even overnight calls to port in Mykonos.

When you should go

Like so many of the famous island destinations of Greece, Mykonos is quite popular from about May through September, with July and August welcoming the largest visitor numbers. That's because the sea temperatures are at their warmest and the sun (seems to) shine its brightest!

What else you might need

If you're a cruise passenger or arriving by air via Athens, you will have cleared customs by the time you arrive in Mykonos. Expect your Schengen visa duration to accumulate while you're here.
