Irrepressibly charming and exotically beautiful, Mykonos is a party hub of Greece. If you are considering Mykonos for your honeymoon, be prepared to lose yourself in dazzling nights of parties, secluded hilly terrains, quaint streets lined by thorny bougainvillea, the sublime backcountry tracks and of course, the sultry beaches fronted by the cerulean Aegean Sea. When you two are done partying, step out to explore the isle and stumble upon its hidden gems.
When to go to Mykonos
Every couple wants to enjoy privacy on their romantic retreat. If you want seclusion, pleasant weather and warm waves, the months of September and October offer the best conditions. Springtime, just before the summertime holiday rush, is also an excellent time to visit. The season is mildly cold, and rates are affordable. Avoid going in June, July, and August as it is the high-season and prices are skyrocketing.
Getting to your Mykonos Honeymoon
You have three options to get to Mykonos; by plane, by boat and on a cruise ship. The airport is located about 4km from the main town. You can get aboard on a ferry or a catamaran from the Greek mainland. If you want to reach the aisle in style and enjoy the spectacular surroundings at the same time, we suggest you book a cruise ship tour.
How long to stay in the Mykonos
Sprawling in the heart of the Cycladic complex, the cosmopolitan island has a lot to offer. From merrymaking, sun-bathing and having fancy dinners to gazing at its ivory architecture, spending halcyon days at villages, and exploring sublime coves, give yourself at least a week to tour the town before heading to other Greek islands.
What to do during your honeymoon in Mykonos
Here are some of the amazing things and activities you must do on your honeymoon to Mykonos:
Visit Little Venice
Famous for its quaint two and three-story medieval houses standing against the aquamarine backdrop of the raging sea, Little Venice oozes of alluring romance and an air of nonchalance. It will only take you a few minutes to reach the picturesque destination from Fabrika bus station. Walk to the whimsical windmills and run down the stairs down to the edge of the sea. From there, witness the most exalting sunsets of the world together.
Visit Some of the Amazing Beaches
When you are in Mykonos, you obviously have to explore the world-famous beaches.
Platis Gialos Beach
The long, sandy beach is quite crowded mostly with tourists and families. It is probably not the most ideal beach for couples, but it sure offers beautiful sights of the sea. Swim in the lukewarm water and frolic among the waves, and when you are tired, have some fresh seafood and cocktails in one of the many cafes by the beach. You can access the beach by taking the bus from the town. The drive is 15 minutes long.
Located 6km from the town, the festive beach is renowned for its parties, loud thrashes, and evening gatherings. After the sun has drifted off, you will be able to hear the loud from miles away. You can readily access the beach by a ferry from Platis Gialos Beach or by a bus from Mykonos Town.
Psarou Beach is more on the affluent side. Boasting upscale apartments, hotels, and restaurants, come to the beach if you are willing to splurge. It is about 5 km from the main town.
See the Windmills
Built by the Venetians in the 16th century high on the hills, the windmills, locally known as Kato Milli, are the first unique thing you will notice about the town. The iconic Mykonos windmills are 16 in number and even though they are no longer used to grind grains, the locals remain absolutely fond of them. When you approach the scenic spot, you will understand its reverence. From there, you can go down to Little Venice or stay to watch the sundown.
Visit the Panagia Paraportiani
Referred to as the Byzantine jewels, the whitewashed church of Panagia Paraportiani is an awe-inspiring site in the olden Kastro district of Chora. The church dates back to 1425 but its construction was completed in the 17th century. It features four ground-level chapels and one situated above them. One of the chapels is open to the public for visitation.
Go Scuba Diving
