When the weather back home is grey and miserable, many people love the idea of escaping to a warmer climate. By getting away from the cold of your home, you can recharge and enjoy a little bit of winter sun before returning back home. Of everywhere you can go, Mykonos is one of the best places to choose. Let’s take a look at why!
Obviously, one of the first things you are going to look at when you want to go away for some winter sun is the temperature and weather of your destination. You will want to go away somewhere warmer and milder than your home if you are chasing the winter sun. This makes Mykonos one of the perfect places to visit.
The winter temperatures on Mykonos don’t often go below an average of 12 °C. This might not sound very high but it can be very nice compared to 0 °C or the minus temperatures you might be experiencing back home.
It is important to remember that Mykonos is a windy island so it might feel like it is much colder than it actually is. The winter months will also bring more rain than you might see in the summer. However, it will often be nicer than your weather might be at home. If you do not want to subject yourself to the summer climate of the southern hemisphere, this is the best option for you.
One of the best reasons to get away for some winter sun is to indulge in the off-season prices. You might be able to bag one of the many luxury Mykonos villas which dot the hills of the island for just a fraction of their original cost. If you think you might want to find one of these brilliant villas for a winter visit, BlueVillas have more information on this.
Why not arrange to get away with your friends or family for Christmas or New Years Eve in the Greek sun? This will split the cost of the villa even further and you might get a stay in a beautiful luxury villa for even cheaper. Consider spending the holidays in a beautiful location like Mykonos; it is sure to be a memorable experience!
If you want to explore Mykonos but don’t want to deal with the crowds of the summer, this is the perfect time for you to do it. The high season runs roughly from April to October when the direct ferries between Mykonos and Santorini begin to run.
One problem you might encounter is when visiting this island in winter is that many of the businesses are shut. Since this is a place which thrives on tourism, many of the tourist hotspots shut up for the winter once the majority of tourists have left. If you are heading to Mykonos with a list of places you want to eat at, you might be left disappointed.
There are places which stay open all through the year. You might even be able to find a few places which are favourites among the locals. In addition to this, many of the famous sites of Mykonos will be open. If you want to enjoy them and get some fantastic pictures without having to fight other tourists for the best photograph, this is going to be a great way to enjoy it.
Get Away from It All
While some people may look on the closures as a reason to not visit Mykonos in the winter, there are others who would look on it as a blessing. Flights and ferries are more sporadic than they are in the winter months. You might arrive on Mykonos with nowhere to go but your holiday villa for two weeks.
Some may think this horrific but others would love to relax in this way. Visiting this beautiful island in winter offers you the chance to get away to a true Greek bolthole simply to relax and enjoy yourself. No matter how you want to spend your time in your villa, you can take it as an opportunity to truly relax and unwind.
