The island of Mykonos is a must-visit on any trip to Greece! Mykonos is at the heart of the Cyclades island group, featuring crystal clear waters, traditional villages, great beaches, and a massive party scene. So sling on your best bikini and head over to Mykonos for a trip you’ll never forget.
Although Mykonos comes across as an expensive island, it’s still possible to visit on a budget, so don’t put your bikini away just yet!
When to go
Consider visiting Mykonos out of peak season in May, September or October, where you can enjoy the opening and closing parties - some of the best nights of the year AND save money on accommodation and flights.
Where to stay
When visiting Mykonos on a budget, you should carefully consider where to stay. The areas in and around the Old Port, Elia Beach and ‘Little Venice’ have a very high price range. However, there’s plenty of budget-friendly accommodation options. The best deals can be found in the resort of Ornos, the outskirts of Mykonos town and the coastal village of Tourlos. If you book ahead, you’re bound to find a great deal in your favourite location. If you’re planning on doing lots of exploring, Mykonos town is the best option.
Public transport is the best way to get around Mykonos, whether you’re on a budget or not, linking many towns, beaches and attractions so you can explore every corner of the island with the girls. Most of the key sights in Mykonos are entirely free!
There’s windmills to be explored, historical churches to discover and stunning beaches to explore, or simply sit back and relax in your best swimwear on one of the best beaches in Greece. Finish off the day watching the sun sink below the horizon during one of the best sunsets in Greece. You’ll have the best sunset views on Choulakia Beach and Agios Ioannis Beach.
If you’re hoping to experience the famous Mykonos party scene on a budget, you most definitely can. It’s so good that Mykonos has been named the ‘Ibiza of Greece’. Put on your cheeky swimwear and head over to Tropicana Beach bar, where you can chill out by day and party until 5:00 am! It’s well worth paying to get into Paradise Beach club for a day - the 14th best club in the world.
Paradise Beach Club is THE best place to experience the Mykonos party scene, and it does not disappoint. Choose between the day or night parties, or both, and enjoy a party you’ll never forget.
In Mykonos town, you’ll find plenty of fantastic bars serving the best cocktails you’ll ever taste. After the pre-drinks, the likes of Scarpa and Scandinavian Club will be calling. For a more chilled evening, sip a cocktail in Little Venice gazing out at the picturesque views, or dine in one of the many tavernas on the island to sample the world-famous Greek cuisine. For an extra special meal, try Appagio in Ornos or Kostas in Mykonos Town for an affordable meal and food to die for.
So what are you waiting for? Mykonos is calling...
