How to Avoid Overpacking for Your Mykonos Vacation? Well, the First Step Is to Make a Packing List of Essentials

The worst thing to do is to start packing for your Mykonos vacation at the last minute. There won’t be enough time to consider what items are necessary and what can be left behind.

To avoid this, you’ll need to create a list of outfits, toiletries, electronics, and other essentials. In this way, important things like passports, wallets, and flight tickets won’t be forgotten. As you pack, some items that are not a priority can be crossed off the list, thus creating enough space in your suitcase. Every great Mykonos vacation starts with thorough preparation.

Here is a video that will be helpful when creating a packing list for a trip to Greece.

Determine What You Will Wear and Choose a Limited Wardrobe

Plan what you’ll wear each day of the vacation. When we say that you need only a “capsule wardrobe,” this means that only 25 pieces of clothing will be needed. Of course, how many clothes will be included in your list depends on how many days you will spend on Mykonos. But, a great idea is always to mix and match outfits to wear and create outfits out of a smaller number of pieces.

Only Focus On Carrying Lightweight Fashionable Pieces

It’s best to keep in mind that you’ll travel to a party island. This means that you need appropriate clothing pieces for taking pictures in all Instagrammable spots. We recommend focusing on flowery dresses, lightweight shorts, and vibrant tops. For casual strolls and relaxation in Mykonos Town, you’d like to have just one or two casual outfits.

Bring Only Shoes That Can Be Worn In Numerous Situations

Pack only multipurpose footwear. Numerous pairs of shoes that match different outfits would fill your suitcase easily. Determine which pairs you’ll be varying with several different outfits.

A great tip is to choose sandals or shoes that look great with a more glamorous look when going to a Mykonian club, as well as a more casual look. Tennis shoes can be worn with dresses, athleisure, and denim. If you’re not going to go hiking in Greece, don’t bring any clothing or footwear suitable for hiking.

Pack Only the Travel-Size Toiletries

It’s best to opt for travel-sized toiletries. The miniaturized versions of essential personal care items will save you a lot of room. Also, you won’t have any problems adhering to airport security regulations. They are portable and lightweight, allowing you to travel effortlessly to Greece. Here is a list of all travel-sized toiletries you’ll need:

  • Compact toothpaste,
  • Diminutive shampoo bottle,
  • Miniature soaps,
  • Small moisturizes,
  • Compact sunscreen,
  • Small bottles of perfume.

Prepare a Small Makeup Bag

Taking professional photographs on this picturesque island is a must; therefore, makeup should be on your list as well. However, for a great makeup look, you’re not going to require a lot of beauty products. We recommend only packing a travel-size reliable foundation, multitasking concealer, a small eye shadow palette, a dual-purpose blush, and a lip color. Order a small plastic makeup bag to fit all the products for Greece.

Beach Items Can Be Bought When You Arrive on the Greek Island

Here is the catch. There is no need to drag sun hats and colorful beach towels from your home. All beach items can be bought on-site. From sunglasses to umbrellas, diving goggles, and swimming fins.

What is more important is that you can pick something that will match the style of Mykonos, so you can be fashionable on all Mykonian beaches. These items can also be brought home after the vacation as prized souvenirs.

When You Travel to One of the Most Beautiful Greek Islands, Don’t Pack Too Many “Just in Case” Items

One of the best ways to avoid overpacking for Mykonos is not to overthink future situations on the island. For instance, if you focus on “just in case” clothing items that you want to wear for rainy and cold weather that might occur or not, you’ll lose yourself and overpack spontaneously.

By shedding the weight of excessive baggage, you’ll not only travel lighter but also open yourself up to being fully immersed in the island’s culture and natural beauty.

Limit the Choice of Electronics You Need

Do you plan on taking underwater pictures? Do you want to watch movies in one of the Mykonos villas for rent? Ask yourself questions about all the things you want to do on Mykonos. Determine what electronics will be necessary and what you can leave behind. We recommend only packing a camera and your smartphone for a vacation in Greece.

If you need to work remotely, bring a laptop as well, but otherwise leave it at home. If you want to watch movies, go to the outdoor cinema in Mykonos Town, Cine Manto. If you’re clueless about the directions, ask your concierge in Mykonos.
