If you’ve decided to visit Mykonos – congrats, you’ve chosen the best place in Greece for your vacation. The only question is when will you come – which month suits you best? Those who have chosen October must be wondering about the weather in Mykonos in October. Will you still be able to enjoy all the benefits of this island even though the season is practically over? Let’s find out – we have all the info on the weather in Mykonos, Greece, in October.
Mykonos in October – weather conditions are essential for your travel plans. Before you come here, it’s wise to find out what kind of climate you should expect during your vacation. Will it be hot enough for swimming and lying around on the beach all day? We have good news for you – even though the summer is technically over by then, this month is quite warm and pleasant for a stay in most islands in Greece, including Cycladic islands (of which Mykonos is a part).
The high season on Mykonos lasts from late June to early September, so obviously, you will miss out on most parties if you decide to come after September ends. This means that party enthusiasts should probably come at the peak of the summer.
Still, don’t think you won’t be able to enjoy a party or two – for example, you can still visit Paradise Club, the biggest club on the island (and one of the best). So, dancing and partying are still options, but this part of the year is better suited for other activities.
It’s important to know what to pack to wear in Mykonos – and climate conditions can tell you just that. As we’ve already mentioned, early autumn on the Greek islands is quite a pleasant moment to travel here. It’s not as extremely hot as it would be in August, for example, but it’s still warm enough for tourists to enjoy a day on the beach and get around the island to soak in its beauty. Some might say that this climate is better than the one during the high season. Plus, there aren’t as many tourists, so you can be sure you’ll avoid the crowds.
Although the chances of rain are still pretty slim in October – 10% – they are slowly increasing as the winter is approaching. The average rainfall is around 167mm falling over the course of 8 days – that’s nothing to worry about. You’ll still get to enjoy days in beach clubs, but keep in mind that if you do face the rain, it will be a bit heavier than your usual summer rain. Still, your chances of having a cloudy day in Mykonos will be at a low 30% – we’d take that bet, wouldn’t you?
Rain won’t cause you any trouble, but what about a low temperature? Should you pack more than your beach attire? The average temperature is 19°C. The highs are about 22°C, and the lows are around 15°C. An occasional day might even head up to the high 20s, but it’s wise to bring a jacket with you either way – days might be fine, but once the sun sets, you will want to have something warmer to wear than a swimming suit. Speaking of the sun – expect to have about 9 sunshine hours per day.
If you love the sea more than anything else you can see on this island, don’t worry – you will be able to enjoy the beautiful water of the Aegean, as it won’t be too cold to swim in. The sea temperature is usually around 22°C – more than enough for a pleasant swim. Plus, let’s not forget the water sports you can experience on this island – there’s certainly more than enough to do on Mykonos beaches.
Besides the many beaches around the coast of Mykonos you will want to check out, what else should you do while on your vacation?
