Mykonos is a paradise for all types of holiday-goers, with traditional blue and white Stucco houses, lots of white sand beaches and its superclubs, which attract DJs like nectar attracts bees.

Sound great? So, how can you get your holiday to Mykonos cheaper? Well…

You might also be able to save yourself a few quid by booking an early-bird or last-minute holiday to Mykonos. If hotels and airlines have spare rooms and seats left over, they might reduce their prices because a little money is better than empty rooms and seats.  

Don’t forget your travel insurance! If things go wrong, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that your travel insurance is there to help you out and you won’t have to splash out loads of cash. 

All-inclusive Mykonos holidays 

When you’re comparing Mykonos holidays, you’ll notice that most hotels offer various board types. All a board type refers to is what meals will be included in the cost of your accommodation.  

With all-inclusive, you get breakfast, lunch and dinner included in the room price. Half-board gets you breakfast and an evening meal while bed and breakfast (B&B) and room-only are self-explanatory. 

Self-catering is another board type you might come across. You’ll get a room with kitchen facilities that you can use to make your own meals.  

When it comes to choosing your board type, consider what your holiday plans are. If you plan to be out and about, then all-inclusive might be a waste of money... But if you’re going to be poolside all day, then it might be a great option.  

Did you know...?

The island is said to be the location of a huge bust-up between Zeus and the Titans, and where Hercules killed the invincible giants

Mykonos package holidays 

A package holiday is a convenient way to keep track of the total cost of your trip and your Mykonos holiday details. 

Your flights, accommodation and sometimes even your airport transfers are combined into one price, so you can easily see the full cost. 

It tends to be a bit cheaper when you book a package holiday, but shop around to see what works out best for your budget and your circumstances.  

Luxury holidays to Mykonos 

A Mykonos luxury holiday needn’t cost the earth, but there’s no sugar coating the fact that a five-star hotel will probably cost a lot more than a budget-friendly hostel.  

There are lots of opulent hotels and resorts in Mykonos, whether you’re after a romantic getaway or a posh pad suitable for the kids.  

If you’re travelling in style with a large group of family or friends, it might be more cost-effective to split the price of a villa between you, rather than individually paying for five-star indulgent rooms.

Weather and when to holiday in Mykonos 

Mykonos has a Mediterranean climate, meaning it's warm year-round. It's also usually windy, due to it being an island.  

For the best party experience, the warmest sea temperatures and weather, the best time to visit Mykonos is during the summer (May to September).  

If you can’t stand the heat, plan your Mykonos holiday for autumn or spring. April and October are fairly quiet and still have warm weather and minimal rainfall. November tends to be the wettest month out of the year in Mykonos.  

What can you do in Mykonos?  

With about 800 churches, 100 bars and only 31 taxis total, there’s lots to get stuck in to in Mykonos, provided you can get around. You’ll also find lots of museums, cafes and restaurants.  

In terms of beaches, for water sports aplenty and a party on the sand, check out Paradise beach, or Super Paradise beach for the LGBTQ+ sunbathing scene.   

Psarou is a family-friendly, well protected beach, and Kalafatis is a great spot for scuba diving as it’s got a reef along its length.  

Agios Sostis, Fokos and Kalo Livadi beach are also picturesque, but Elia beach, while beautiful with its white sand and blue sea, can be very busy in the peak season. 

For non-beach-related merriment, the famous windmills of Mykonos are worth a visit, along with the nearby Little Venice – so named because of its waterfront buildings, with balconies jutting out over the sea, like in Venice, Italy.  

Plenty of day trips are available, such as the Ancient Delos tour, south coast cruise and city and island tour.   

After exploring the island or taking it easy during the day, get your party on at the pubs and clubs like Club Paradise, Tropicana beach bar, Tru Paradise, Cavo Paradiso and Super Paradise Club.  

Before you reluctantly trudge back to Mykonos Airport, maybe you could treat yourself to an 'I love Mykonos' keyring using the money you saved by comparing Mykonos holidays with us. Or maybe not…
