Chances are that 2021 will be yet another year when planning and booking won’t be a piece of cake. Having this in mind, you need to think of a 4-season paradise, where almost every time of the year is a great time for holidays.
[dropcap font=”” size=”1″ background=”” color=”” circle=”0″ transparent=”0″]T[/dropcap]ake Mykonos, for example; with the small exception of the period between December and early March, when the island takes a break to prepare for the new season, this exceptional spot of the Cyclades offers ideal conditions for those looking for an early spring to a very late fall, luxury escape.
It is this magical “je ne sais quoi” of the Aegean Sea that makes the sun keep shining almost throughout the whole winter and helps the cold temperatures, strong winds and heavy rain never last more than a very few days in a row. The sun will eventually come out and then, right there in the winter’s heart, an unexpectedly brilliant spring-like day will take people out in the balconies, streets, or beaches! In early March, as the days start growing longer, spring is back again, spreading around its beautiful colors, aromas and warmth.
So, when dreaming your next holiday in this exceptional destination, feel free to check the calendar for anytime in the year as the best time:
In March, the wind may be still crispy, but the weather is ideal for long walks around the old port, watching the fishermen bringing home their boats, equipment, and baskets full of fresh fish after a long night at sea. Check at the bright blue skies; their colors at this time of the year are probably the most fascinating of the year.
In April you will love seeing old ladies smiling back at you, while whitewashing their home yards. Don’t be surprised if they call you in for a cup of slowly boiled strong Greek coffee to then proudly show you their blooming flowers. The beaches start opening and the smell of the summer is already in the air!
May is without question the time for a good swim in the deep blue waters, so crystal clear that you don’t need a mask to look at their hidden treasures. Usually, it is also the time to celebrate Easter in Mykonos, by taking part in its mystical rituals and enjoy delicious food, both before and after the feast! Following the locals at the epitaph’s walk around the small streets of Chora is a not-to-miss opportunity.
And then, summer is officially there, starting in June with the perfect weather, warm seas and not yet overcrowded beaches and ending with the July-August-September frenzy, followed by the relaxing days on the beach and the quiet evenings of the fall.
