Explore the True Beauty of Mykonos – Here Are Some Fun Things to Do on the Beach in Winter

While Mykonos is known as one of the world’s most popular summer destinations, not a lot of people know that the Island of the Winds is the perfect winter getaway where you can spend time enjoying nature with your loved ones. And, of course, don’t underestimate the beauty of Mykonos beaches during the colder months. So, here are the best things to do on the beach in winter.

Play Your Favorite Beach Games

If you’re looking for fun activities everyone will love, how about some beach games? They’re always a crowd pleaser, and they’re great for larger groups as everyone can be involved. There are countless games to choose from – you can play cards, charades, throw a ball around, play volleyball, throw a frisbee, and so on. The possibilities are endless, and you can even get creative and make up your own new games.

And, of course, when visiting Mykonos during the wintertime, there is one activity you have to try – beach golf. While it might sound a bit unusual, beach golf is actually a very popular sport during the colder months, which is the only period of the year when it can be played. The rules are very simple – go and play golf on one of the beaches in Mykonos and try not to let the golf ball fall into the sea. And as with all the other games, drinking is very welcome. 

Gather Your Friends and Family Around a Bonfire

Vacations in Mykonos are all about creating unforgettable memories with your loved ones, no matter the season. If you want to have a truly special day you will remember for years to come, why not light a bonfire during the evening hours? Not only will it keep you warm and toasty, but it’s also an excellent opportunity to roast some delicious s’mores and bond with your closest friends and family. Bring a blanket, some hot chocolate, tea, or mulled wine, and share stories over the crackling fire. Just make sure to do it safely and contain the flame.

Is There a More Perfect Place to Fly a Kite Than the Island of the Winds?

Mykonos is known as the legendary Island of the Winds, so naturally – you can expect some wind on the beaches during the colder months. And what is windy weather perfect for? Flying a kite with your closest ones! It’s one of the daytime activities everyone will love, and you can spend the day competing who’s the best kite pilot. 

Organize a Lovely Picnic with Your Loved Ones

One of the best and most wholesome ideas for a great winter day is organizing a picnic at the beach. Bring a large blanket and a picnic basket and pack all of the necessary items – delicious Greek food or simple small appetizers like sandwiches, drinks, some sweets, water, utensils, napkins, and so on. If you want to get some great Instagram photos, make it aesthetic and pack some decorations like fairy lights or candles.

Here’s Another Fun Thing to Do – Organize a Treasure Hunt

Mykonos is one of the most exclusive and luxurious destinations in the world, and some expensive items are bound to get lost. So, why not go on a little treasure hunt and try to find some valuable things in the sand? Not only is it very fun, but it can be very lucrative as well. If you want to go all out, you can always ask our concierge VIP services in Mykonos for a metal detector.
