Come summer time, there is no better place to be than in Mykonos.
The locals will tell you to come in June and September if you want to experience the quiet beauty of Mykonos, however if you are looking to party than August is the best month for you.
With crystal-blue water, endless beaches and the dry north wind of the Aegean - these are just a part of the islands charm. Dubbed as the new Ibiza, beaches such as Paradise and Super Paradise are awake all night long.
And no matter how you’re feeling, the rose-gold Mykonian light will make even the most sunburnt, stressed or tired person look beautiful! The locals say that the rose-gold light is due to the Greek legend of the neighbouring island of Delos – the sacred isle on which Apollo and Artemis, and light itself, were born.
If you need a break from partying, Mykonos is the perfect jumping-off point for the nearby island of Delos which is known for its archaeological site. The islands ruins encompass Doric temples, an amphitheatre, mosaic houses and the iconic Terrace of the Lions statues.
We’d highly recommend hiring a speedboat at Kalafatis to go to the lagoon on Delo’s sister island, Rhenia. Rhenia has one of the most beautiful and untouched beaches in the Aegean, with its almost white powdery sand and turquoise waters.
