WHEN TO GO

Blue skies and sunshine are a regular feature in Mykonos. The mercury hovers comfortably in the early 20s in spring and autumn – ideal for sightseeing – and rises to the high 20s and early 30s come July and August. The island’s Cyclades setting means that the meltemi winds stop the summertime temperatures feeling too hot, though.

Health & Safety

You should take out comprehensive travel and medical insurance to cover you while you’re away. It’s also a good idea to get a European Health Insurance Card – or EHIC – before leaving the UK. Though it’s not a substitute for travel insurance, it entitles you to emergency medical treatment on the same terms as Greek nationals. It won’t, however, cover you for medical repatriation, ongoing medical treatment or non-urgent treatment.
