Mykonos is simply magical (and for many celebs and a-lists, absolutely hedonistic) in the summertime. But, it’s equally ravishing after the partying crowds are long gone. Although famous for its highly intense nightlife and luxury lifestyle, Mykonos remains the Queen of the Cyclades. And, as every blue-blooded, she maintains her appeal and natural superiority year-round, greeting guests with equal amounts of magnetism and utmost pampering, even in the off season.
Bet you haven’t thought of Mykonos as a popular winter destination. However, if getting acquainted with the charms of a Greek island while experiencing the most authentic side of a famous party mecca sounds incredibly fascinating, then winter Mykonos will leave you breathless! Here is why!
Everything is turned into a one-of-a-kind adventure
There is an entirely different atmosphere when getting to know Mykonos amidst the high season and after the summer dust has settled. Strolling the narrow, cobblestone streets of Mykonos Town or the harbour is a much more fulfilling experience now that you don’t need to rub shoulders with the thousands of tourists wanting the same thing as you at the same time as you.
Feel free to soak up the peacefulness and tranquility exuded throughout Mykonos as you visit the local sights and attractions. The imposing presence of the Windmills, the idyllic setting at Little Venice, the grandeur of the Armenistis Lighthouse, the breath-taking sunsets from your luxury Mykonos villa, and the cobalt waters enveloping the island’s golden shores have a profound beauty that reveals itself to you in all of its glory!
And, yes, with the hordes of tourists missing, you can enjoy every single bit of your morning cup of coffee, private diner, Mykonos tour, sightseeing escapade, and cruise around Mykonos and nearby Delos and Rhenia islands. And, all that, with the serenity and completeness needed to recharge your batteries in the heart of a demanding winter.
Undeniably, it is fantastic to walk through the streets of Mykonos in July and get every molecule of your body pumped up with the legendary and totally spoiling vibes of Mykonos. But, it cannot compare to the authenticity and coziness you get from this Greek island with the natural beauties and captivating views of the Mediterranean Sea when visiting it between October and early April!
Yet, there’s plenty of nightlife!
Don’t expect the crazy, night-long, summer beach parties Mykonos is world-renowned for, in January. But, you can count on some serious nightlife going on still. You see, the Greeks are people who love celebrating life in every shape or form. This does not have an expiry date or certain duration! So, you can find plenty of bars, restaurants, and tavernas welcoming visitors with live music and evenings with live bands and singers. And, yes, you’ll be surrounded by groups of people, locals and visitors alike, singing, drinking, and having a great time no matter how tough or challenging their day might have been.
Indeed, entertainment options do not fall short in Mykonos, regardless of the season! So, if you are not after its vibrant party scene, Mykonos is a wonderful place to spend a few days or even weeks in the winter.
And, with the luxury services, facilities, and amenities being available at a much lower price range (compared to the high season), you get to enjoy stylish accommodation, fine dining, VIP options, and many high-end concierge services and unique experiences at a fraction of their summer price tag!
