More About Mykonos

Overview

From backpackers to the superrich, from day-trippers to yachties to celebrities (who head here by helicopter), Mykonos has become one of the most popular of the Aegean islands. Today's scene is a weird but attractive cocktail of tradition, beauty, and glitz, but travelers from all over the world have always been drawn to this dry, rugged island—at 10 miles by 7 miles, one of the smallest of the Cyclades—thanks to its many stretches of sandy beach, its thatched windmills, and its picturesque port town. One thing is certain: Mykonos knows how to maintain its attractiveness, how to develop it, and how to sell it. Complain as you will that it is touristy and overdeveloped, you'll be back.

Planner

In July and August, the Cyclades are crowded and less personal and more expensive than they are at other times of the year. Walkers, nature lovers, and devotees of classical and Byzantine Greece would do better to come in spring and fall, ideally in late April through June, or September through October, when temperatures are lower and the islands are less tourist-riddled. In late March the islands begin to burst with thousands of varieties of wildflowers, and sprightly crimson poppies dapple stern marble blocks; the sea begins to warm up for comfortable swimming in late May. Autumn's days are shorter, but the sea remains alluringly swimmable well into October. Autumn travel to the islands also brings rustic pleasures: grapes are pressed in September, and zesty olives are gathered and fields plowed in October.

Top Experiences

  • Fashionable Beaches : Mykonos, a barren island that evokes a sexy jet-set lifestyle, flaunts some of Greece's most famous beaches.

  • Party Central : Because of its nonstop nightlife, this island is where Dionysus, the god of merriment or wine, still reigns supreme.

  • Ancient Treasures : A short boat ride away is hallowed Delos, a windswept islet said to have been birthplace of Apollo. Still watched over by a row of marble lions, it was once the religious and commercial center of the eastern Mediterranean.

  • Taking a Stroll : The best time to visit Mykonos's central harbor is in the cool of the evening, when the islanders promenade along the esplanade to meet friends and visit the numerous cafés.
