Once the exclusive haunt of the international jet-set, Mykonos is increasingly opening out to other travellers. And, with cheap flights to Mykonos available all year round with Expedia, there’s never been a better time to explore the relaxed pace and beautiful beaches of this Greek island.
Discover the sublime sandy coast by day and the hip nightlife when the sun sets. Browse the designer boutiques or enjoy the views from a luxurious hotel nestled between green mountains and turquoise seas. Or, perhaps, you’d rather take advantage of the surfing scene that the ‘Island of the Winds’ offers? Whatever your reason for visiting Mykonos will offer you a warm kalosórisma (welcome).
Direct flights to Mykonos are not available all year round, but there are many convenient connecting flights available from Athens or Rome.
During the summer months, particularly during the school holidays, flights are in high demand and prices rise accordingly. However, Mykonos offers sunshine in abundance from April to October: if you can visit outside of July and August, you’ll find many more cheap flights available.
During the winter months many bars and restaurants close down – and your options for flights are restricted to connecting services. This is your best bet for booking the cheapest airfare to Mykonos – but do be prepared for some rainy days and less of a buzz in the resorts and the cities.
To catch the best deals to Mykonos, particularly during its peak summer season, you’ll need to book your flights as early as possible. However, whenever you are travelling, there are some tricks you can use when searching for Mykonos flights with Expedia to find a bargain plane ticket.
If you can be flexible on your dates you can select ‘Show flexible dates’ when your flight results are returned. This allows you to look at nearby dates – and often a day or two’s difference can make a very big difference to the cost of your Mykonos flight.
Public buses run on a regular basis between the airport and Mykonos Town, and if you are staying here this is a cheap option.
Taxis are also available and, as Mykonos is a small island, your fare shouldn’t be too much. Most of the main holiday resorts in Mykonos are located on the island’s west coast – with typical taxi times including 10 minutes to Agios Ioannis or Ornos, and 15 minutes for the hotels and apartments of Agios Stefanos.
Shuttle busses can also be found at the airport, and these offer a cheaper door-to-door alternative to a taxi – but your journey time is dependant very much on where else you need to visit to drop other passengers off.
Finally, to really get around all of the beautiful island with ease, you can arrange car hire from the airport and simply breeze drown the well-maintained roads to your holiday accommodation.
In addition, connecting flights can be found with:
Mykonos Town, known locally as Chora, is scattered with whitewashed cube-shaped houses, cobbled streets, authentic Greek cuisine and an intimate but active nightlife. It’s also home to the famous Chora Windmills, the island’s most iconic landmark.
Largely sheltered from the northern winds, Agios Stefanos is one of the best beaches on the island. After a spot of sunbathing browse its restaurants and classy beachside shops.
Ano Mera attracts the winds and is a favourite for surfers as a result, particularly at the nearby beach of Ftelia. Try your hand at watersports here.
Hop on a boat to visit Delos. This island, just off the western coast of Mykonos, houses some of Greece’s most impressive ancient ruins. Its Unesco World Heritage Greek temples, beautifully preserved mosaics and marble amphitheatre are well worth missing a day on the beach for.
