If the summer vacation is quickly approaching and you still haven’t booked your trip, don’t despair. It’s not all lost yet – there’s still a chance to organize a last-minute Mykonos holiday and make it an exceptional experience that will stay in your memories forever. Let’s take a look at how to do that – we have some useful tips for you.
The Island of the Winds, as it’s popularly known, is one of the most amazing tourist destinations in the world. It’s the kind of place that will take your breath away and make you think – I’m in heaven. From the second the season starts, the place will be swamped with people. Every year, thousands come to enjoy the attractions of this island – and the numbers only increase every year.
We can tell you that finding accommodation here is complicated even when you don’t do it last minute. Staying on this island probably won’t be cheap – it would be irrational to expect that from this destination. Still, no one’s to say that you can’t get a decent deal and have a pleasurable and relaxing stay in Mykonos. So, let’s find out how you can do just that.
Seeing as how the island is famous for its huge crowds at the peak of the summer season (among many other things), it’s not surprising that many people have entirely given up on the idea of a last-minute trip before they even start the search for a room in the most luxurious hotel.
Our advice? Don’t be so pessimistic – the quest might be hard, but it’s more than worth it. Getting to see all the beautiful places in this part of the Greek land, experiencing the Aegean Sea, and seeing the best beaches in Greece is the recipe for the vacation of a lifetime.
The most obvious thing you need for a vacation is a room in one of the best hotels – but will you be able to find that last minute? Sadly, this isn’t something that can be guaranteed when it comes to Mykonos, Greece. The problem accompanying the island’s popularity is the lack of cheap last-minute travel arrangements you’d find in other Greek destinations.
Of course, we would suggest you take a look at the well-known booking websites – you might be able to find something. If you are planning a trip for the peak of the season, it will all be a matter of luck – but for the shoulder season, your chances increase, and you’ll most likely be able to get a decent deal.
If you don’t find accommodation in one of the many popular accommodation spots on this island, does that mean that all is lost? Don’t give up so easily – hotels aren’t the only accommodation type available here. There are countless Mykonos villas for rental scattered across the island, and the chances are that not every single one is booked for the date you have in mind.
Whether you want a villa with a private pool or you are determined to book a pet-friendly luxury villa, there is a listing for you out there. Plus, there’s an additional benefit you will get by renting a private villa that you can’t get anywhere else – villas are better suited for larger groups of friends or family members.
Now that you know where to look for accommodation, the only thing left to do is learn about transportation options. We’re sure your first instinct would be to look at the available flights, and that’s the easiest way to go about this.
Many places in Europe have direct flights to JMK airport – but the problem is finding a ticket at the last minute. Most direct flights are booked well in advance. Unless you are really lucky, you will have to find a different way to get to this island.
No one says you have to get a direct flight – there’s always an option of getting from your homeland to Athens and then catching a short flight to The Island of the Winds. You can probably tell that this is a more expensive way to reach the island – if you want to stay within the budget, we can suggest booking a ferry ride. Aside from being less pricey, the ferry provides a more picturesque trip.
If you’re already on one of the Cycladic islands, it won’t make much sense to go back to Athens and then return to the Cyclades. In that case, flying or sailing from Santorini to Mykonos is your best bet. Of course, there are ferry rides from most larger Cycladic islands if that suits you more. The last but not least option we can suggest is booking a private jet from Athens or Santorini – this is the most efficient way to reach your destination.
When you have everything planned, the last thing on your to-do list before the beginning of the vacation is packing. Luckily, this won’t take long – you don’t need much to relax on the beach. Pack the basics, and don’t forget to add a few nice items for dinners in the best restaurants on the island. If you plan on partying (which you should definitely try at least once during your stay), you will also require a few fancy garments for the extraordinary clubs on Mykonos.
