Your first time in Mykonos will be magical. We know you can’t wait to explore this fantastic Greek destination, but before you do, learn when and how to get there and what to do once you’ve arrived. We delve into the details in this guide, so get a pen and paper to plan your ideal vacation.
If you’re visiting for the first time, you’re in for an adventure. Stay in one of many Mykonos luxury villas, explore its rich history, swim on the most stunning beaches, and enjoy the crazy Mykonian clubs. There are plenty of sights to see and things to do, so you won’t be bored for a minute.
The island’s capital has the same name, and its (un)official name is Chora. “Chora” means “town” in Greek, which is pretty simple to remember. It’s part of a larger group of islands in the Aegean Sea called the Cyclades, its climate is Mediterranean, with dry summers and mild winters.
The ideal way to travel from Athens is by ferry. Numerous boats from the island ferry port connect it with other islands in Greece, like Santorini and Paros.
There are year-round flights from JMK airport to Athens and Thessaloniki in Greece and other European locations. The peak travel times are typically between June and September. You can also rent a private charter to take you to and from here.
You can hire a car or rent a private driver with The Ace VIP concierge services to get around. If you don’t want to drive or go by car, the island’s bus services run regularly, and you can even find mopeds and ATVs for rental.
If you want a complete experience, the ideal travel period is between May and September. July and August are the busiest months, and hotels, bars, and clubs are overcrowded, so if you’re looking for a more relaxed vacation, our tip is to book your trip for the end of summer.

Mykonian beaches are all equally tempting, so it can be tough to find the perfect one. Year after year, the town beach Megali Ammos is a popular relaxation area. It’s just a walking distance from Chora, easy to find, and excellent for relaxing.
Other beaches you can visit are:
Elia Beach is one of the most popular beaches on the Cyclades because it’s ideal for families, couples, partygoers, those that love to relax, and those that like to live on the wild side. You can try water sports here, like parasailing, wakeboarding, and jet skis.
Elia Beach is also perfect for organizing a sunset cruise. You can rent a yacht and sail through Mykonian coves and bays with friends, family, or alone. If you want a more nighttime experience, try going on a booze cruise.
You can eat at the best international restaurants and visit the world’s first Buddha-Bar beach club while here. Or, you can go to some of the most famous Greek eateries that will surely charm you. We recommend The Old Port Taverna, Kiki’s Tavern, The Sunset Restaurant, and The Blue Dolphin.
