Consider The Temperature
When you are booking your trip to Mykonos, it is important to consider the weather that you are going to have when you are there. The warmest months in Mykonos tend to be June, July, August and September so you have plenty of time to get some sun. Remember that Mykonos is an island so there is plenty of wind and it might be slightly colder in the evenings.
Stay In A Villa

There are some great hotels on this island but when you choose Mykonos Villa Rental by BlueVillas, you’ll get to stay somewhere amazing. Not only will you get your own pool, but you’ll have a private space and plenty of amazing views. Don’t fall in to the trap of staying in a hotel, book your villa today.
Ask For Directions
The local people in Mykonos are known for being really friendly so if you need to get somewhere don’t be shy – ask for directions. It is very likely that the locals will know the place that you are looking for as it is a very small island so make sure to ask someone as most of them should be able to speak English. This will make your trip a lot easier and it will save you a lot of time staring at a map.
Make Dinner Reservations
When many people are off on their holidays, they don’t tend to make reservations as there are so many restaurants. Of course, Mykonos can get very busy over the peak season so if you don’t make a reservation, you might not get a table in that popular restaurant. Make sure to plan ahead and save yourself some time as these tables can get very hard to get.
Visit Delos Island
If you travel to Mykonos and don’t get a chance to visit Delos Island, then you will be missing out. This historic island has a lot to see in terms of architecture and views. You will need to get a boat to this island and if it is windy out you might find that the boats are delayed or cancelled. Make sure to plan ahead for your trip to Delos Island and bring your camera to capture the amazing sights.
Watch The Sunset
Mykonos has an absolutely amazing sunset just like the other Cyclades islands so make sure not to miss out on it. If you are unsure where to go to see the sunset then you should check out Little Venice, Saint John or Agios Stefanos which have amazing views. Make sure to find out what time the sunset is at because it can vary depending on the time of year that you are there.
Try Some Water Sports
Mykonos is a very windy island, so it makes sense that people take advantage of this and do a lot of water sports. If you are planning on heading to Mykonos this year, then you should make sure to try out windsurfing and the other activities offered along the beautiful beaches. You will have a great time and even if you don’t enjoy it, you can sit back, and watch others get out there on the water.
Try The Food
Our final tip for those who are travelling to Mykonos is to try the local food. You will find that there will be plenty of restaurants with food that you would typically find in the UK but there are also so many authentic Greek restaurants. If you have never tried Greek food before then you should expect to find a lot of amazing Greek salads some Mykonian sausages and some Kopanisti which is a famous cream cheese made in Mykonos.
It is important to do your research before you go anywhere on holiday. You should know about the type of weather to expect; what sort of food is on offer and what are the best activities to do. Of course, if you are just planning on heading off on a relaxing holiday filled with sun then you will find that Mykonos is still ideal. This is a beautiful island with a lot to offer so make sure to book your trip to Mykonos in time for next summer.
