Mykonos holds the title of the most cosmopolitan and famous Greek island, while its nightlife is considered to be one of the most exciting in Europe. During the warmest months of the year, the island attracts thousands of people from all over the world. But how is the island during the winter months? For sure, Mykonos is really enchanting in the winter and its visitors can relax and enjoy some wonderful days.
Visiting the island during the winter is absolutely a good idea, if you are looking for relaxing holidays, spending time with yourself. There are only a few travellers, the beaches are empty and the most places are closed. However, this is what you get on the other side:
- The landscape is simply breath-taking. The rough sea, the rocky hills and the white houses create a unique combination of colours which someone can rarely meet. During the summer, the vegetation is usually burnt by the hot sun, however in the winter, the humidity changes the vegetation, giving it a deep green colour.
- The locals are happily available and seem excited to have some ‘fresh blood’ on the island to talk to!
- Time pace is absolutely different than everywhere else. Wild nature and peaceful landscapes guarantee you the absolute relaxing experience.
There is also something amazing about travelling in Mykonos in the winter; you can get amazing travel deals! The weather could be pretty windy or wet, that means you might not be able to go outside as you would like, so it’s recommended to choose your accommodation carefully, looking for a warm, comfortable place, with a nice sea view. What’s more wonderful than this to be able to see the clouds and the wild sea with a nice cup of hot coffee?
During winters, most accommodations are closed. However, the good thing is that those which remain open offer great budget deals, in order to attract some visitors. For example, you can choose a room in a luxury hotel that will cost less than 100 euros in winter, while during the high season the same room may cost 300 euros!
However, a place is not the same without its people. In Mykonos, the majority of the locals are very friendly, warm and hospitable and it’s quite impossible to not have a pleasant conversation with the persons you meet when you explore the island.
Well, even if Mykonos is not one of the most usual winter destinations, your travel there will be a wonderful experience. What is better than meeting inspiring people and exploring gorgeous landscapes?
