You can find cheap flights to Mykonos for departures throughout the year. Is this your dream destination? Read on and find out…
Looking for reasons to visit Mykonos? There are plenty of them. Firstly, there’s the sunshine, which is in abundance between April and October. Then there are the sublime beaches, the nightlife scene, and the designer boutiques. Maybe the luxury hotels, nestled between green mountains and turquoise seas, will lure you. Or perhaps the striking mix of traditional Greek architecture and modern hotspots will be the thing that makes you fall a little bit in love with this glamorous island. Your fellow holidaymakers might give you a few more reasons – they’ve been coming here for years and are utterly devoted to the slow pace of life and the wonderful weather in this gorgeous slice of Greece.
When you fly to Mykonos you can create holidays amid the most astounding palette of whites and blues. The striking Greek blue of the domed buildings blends with perfect cerulean skies, while the white houses and shiny yachts mirror the gentle sea. Splashes of colour only add to the scene in Mykonos Town’s “Little Venice”; the perfect spot to watch the sun setting on another beautiful day.
Mykonos flights arrive from the UK at Mykonos Airport (JMK), after a journey of between three and four hours. Between April and October, there are many direct services from UK airports, including flights to Mykonos from London and Manchester. Get yourself a seat and find out why Mykonos is quite unlike any of its island neighbours.
There isn’t much of a tourism season during the winter months, but indirect flights are still available.
For a hedonistic summer destination, the island of Mykonos is surprisingly poorly connected to the UK...
There are no year-round flights at all except for connecting services with Aegean from London and Manchester via Athens. The summer months also see Vueling connecting over Rome from London’s Gatwick airport.
In the summer months, however, flights are a lot easier to find. British Airways flies direct a couple of times a week from Heathrow, while easyJet offers services from Gatwick, Luton and Manchester and there are charter services with companies such as Thomson and Thomas Cook.
Hello travel-planning superhero. Booked your cheap flights? Excellent. Let’s get you around once you touch down…
Mykonos is a small island, so it’s easy and cheap to get where you want to be.
Public buses run on a regular basis between the airport and Mykonos Town; if you are staying here this is a cheap option.
However, most of the main holiday resorts in Mykonos huddle along the west coast of the island, close to the airport. So get in a taxi at the official rank and it should take no longer than 10 minutes to reach Agios Ioannis or Ornos; 15 minutes for hotels in and around Agios Stefanos.
Shuttle buses also operate from the airport, offering a cheaper door-to-door alternative to a taxi – although your journey could be longer if you are the last of the group to be dropped off.
Car hire is another attractive option in Mykonos. Pre-book with TravelSupermarket and collect your rental vehicle at the airport to make savings on the cost of transfers (and open up the island for private sightseeing adventures).
Your flight to Mykonos is booked, so where will you stay? Read on to find out more about the island’s resorts...
There are a few very good hotels in Mykonos Town itself, though this labyrinth of cobbled lanes is usually visited on day trips from resorts along the coastline.
Ornos is close to the main town and has everything required of a great holiday, from a wide sandy beach of pale sands to excellent hotels, restaurants and a quiet, family feel.
Plati Yialos, on the south coast, has a cosmopolitan air and is equally resplendent, with a beautiful beach and a good mix of restaurants and bars.
The small sandy bay of Agios Stefanos is populated with hotels, while Agios Ioannis offers much of the same in the way of peaceful days and low-key nights tucking into fresh food and delicious wine.
Along the coast are beaches, such as Paradise Beach near Plati Yialos, and Psarou Beach near Ornos Bay, that are alive 24 hours a day with a vibrant party scene. Mykonos Town has plenty of bars and nightclubs too. And while taxis are in good supply, you can easily walk from resorts such as Ornos and Agios Stefanos to the heart of the after-dark action in Mykonos Town.
The island is especially busy during summer, so book Mykonos flights and hotels as early as possible to secure the best deals.
