Best travel time for the Mykonos

When is the best time to go to Mykonos? If you want to enjoy the island and its sights without the hustle and bustle of partying, then autumn is perfect.

This is also usually the time when locals are more active and there is a lot more space, both on the beach and in the center of town. Since the temperatures aren’t that hot anymore, you can also enjoy activities like kayaking or horseback riding or just take your vacation very slowly. Stop by Bakoyia Cafe, popular with locals, for a coffee and listen to the islanders’ heated debates. This type of Mykonos holiday is more Fleet Foxes and a little less Diplo.

The weather on Mykonos in autumn: September and October reach around 27°C and 23°C respectively and the water is still pleasantly warm at around 22°C. Seasonal Meltemi winds blowing in from the north occasionally cool the days down a bit, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

Getting to Mykonos: As one of the most popular Greek islands, there are always flight connections, and there are also direct flights well into October. If you want to fly later, you should plan something in advance, as there are less frequent flights to Mykonos.
