When March rolls around, every college student starts wondering – what is the most popular spring break destination for this year? And how could they not, with it being the perfect opportunity to let off some mid-term steam before having to deal with finals and graduation? A certain place can be the best spring break destination for a few reasons, so here are some of them that could make Mykonos just the right location for you and your friends to travel to.
So, your group of friends just made a deal to get out of the city and take a trip to one of the destinations that are ideal for the mid-term vacation you’ve envisioned. You’ve probably sat down and googled – what was the most popular spring destination this year? While Mykonos might not have popped up as the top result, you can rest assured that there are a lot of reasons why this island might be just the perfect place you’re looking for.
Spring break is a long-lasting tradition in the United States, and it usually occurs during March or April at colleges, universities, and many K-12 education systems. The exact time frame depends on a few factors, mainly on the term dates of the school institution you go to and the day when the Easter holiday falls. In most cases, it lasts for a week or two – and who wouldn’t like a quick trip to refresh before the dreaded finals start piling up?
While the best time to travel to Mykonos is definitely in the midst of summer heat and not in March or April, during these months, the season is slowly starting. That means you will be able to enjoy most activities that are available in peak season as well, like taking a visit to the many seafood restaurants or taking a guided tour of Delos.
Sure, it might not be the best time for a swim in the Aegean Sea, but there is plenty of stuff to do on the island’s many beaches either way. Dubbed the party island, Mykonos is the perfect choice among various destinations because it’s a place for young people to feel wild and free. On the other hand, this place also offers a lot more, and it can be a family-friendly spring break destination as well.
While packing your beach bag might not be exactly necessary if you’re taking a trip to Mykonos in March or April, there are plenty of other fun things to do. The good news is that you will be able to enjoy around 10 to 12 hours of sunshine per day, so before the sun sets around 8 PM, you’ll have more than enough time to visit the main attractions and even a few hidden places as well.
The weather in March has an average daytime temperature of 15°C or 59°F, which means you can enjoy the sunshine without worrying about UV radiation levels. The sea temperature is about 15°C, and there might be a few rainy days while you’re here, but that will definitely not stop you from having fun, especially when you’re with your closest friends.
The average temperature of the next month is still 15°C or 59°F, but the weather in April gets a bit warmer on a day-to-day basis. However, it’s not that great of a change in weather to head to the coast with your swimsuit on – or is it? Maybe some of your friends will be brave enough to test the waters before you decide on taking a dip.
While the weather might stop you from swimming in the Aegean Sea, there are many more things you can do at the beach. You could hang out and sip some cocktails in one of the beach clubs, eat at nearby Greek restaurants, or find some Instagrammable spots and take a few group pictures. Here are some beaches you definitely need to visit:
When you travel to this island, you should explore as many of its beaches as possible, although some of them are quite far from the main town. So, it might be a good idea to rent a car and be completely free to go wherever you want. There are buses and taxis available, but when it comes down to the price, it might turn out that splitting the car rental expenses is the more cost-effective option.
What makes Mykonos the perfect place for your mid-term vacation is the island’s vibrant nightlife. Finding a good nightclub here is as easy as a walk in the park, and when you’ve spent the whole night partying with your friends, who wouldn’t like to spend the next day relaxing by the private pool of a beautiful Mykonos villa rental?
