In Mykonos, the weather is generally mild with only a few rains. Of course, in winter the weather is cold, but from April to October you can expect temperatures above 20 Degrees. If you want to avoid hot weather, the best time to visit Mykonos is in April, October and November.

During the summer, the temperatures are rarely above 35 Degrees because of the strong northern wind (meltemi) that blows on the island especially in July and August. This is why Mykonos is called the “Island of the Winds”.

However, the sunshine is high all day long, so there is the danger of heat- and sunstroke if you are not careful enough.

The beach life is the ultimate protagonist for nightlife and entertainment in Mykonos during the season and especially in summer. Popular beaches, such as Psarrou, Panormos, Super Paradise, Paranga, Ornos and Kalo Livadi, host famous beach restaurants and clubs that offer moments of fun by the sea from early in the noon until the dawn.

These clubs and restaurants open around April or May. That depends on the date of the Greek Easter, which in Mykonos is considered the start of the full season.
