You may hear people say that Mykonos is a party island and can be very loud. This may be true, but the parties don’t start till the early hours so there’s plenty of time for families to enjoy Mykonos without bumping into any party-goers.
So, don’t let that put you off coming to Mykonos, as you’ll be missing out on one of the most beautiful islands in Greece.
Mykonos is beautiful and a place families can enjoy and in this post, I’m going to explain to you exactly why we loved it so much.
Let’s get started…
So, Is Mykonos suitable for families? Here’s my answer:
Mykonos is Absolutely suitable for families and the kids will love it. There are lots of family activities, such as visiting the many beautiful calm beaches, trendy boutique hotels, the tastiest food ever, open-air cinemas, plus beautiful weather. What’s not to love! We traveled with a 4-month-old and a 4-year-old and had a fantastic memorable vacation in Mykonos and the kids had a blast!
Nighttime was particularly nice walking around the old town before sunset, we didn’t see any groups of rowdy drunks, and the locals are so friendly and helpful. The transport is very convenient and there are lots of places to eat in the town to suit everyone’s palate.
There is so much to do and see as a family in Mykonos, I think its a perfect summer holiday destination for all the family, read on to see what we got up to as a family and what we would recommend on the island to ensure you have the perfect family holiday.
Mykonos is known as a party island, we knew this when we booked our trip back in August. Why Mykonos then I hear you say, well we have 2 young kids and we knew we wouldn’t be out past 9 pm at night, I did my research and the party island doesn’t get going until well after that time, so we wouldn’t really be crossing paths with any of the party goers. Mykonos looked stunning, so we thought we’d give it a try.
I’ve always loved Greece and Mykonos really appealed to me, 50 years ago it was a quiet little fishing village now it’s a luxurious, cosmopolitan holiday destination for the rich and famous! I was curious to see what it was all about.
Only a 4-hour flight from the UK, hot weather, amazing food, beautiful scenery, what’s not to love about Greece. I’ve been to Mainland Greece, Santorini and Zante but I have to say Mykonos was my favorite “island” (Athens is one of my favorite places in the world, if you can combine it with a trip to Mykonos go for it)
Mykonos is situated 93 miles East of Athens in the Aegean sea. Mykonos is a popular cosmopolitan island that is popular with gay travelers and young partying 20 somethings. It is one of the more expensive islands with some rooms costing hundreds a night. The island has something for everyone’s taste and budget and with its sunny climate and stunning white washed buildings its sure to impress everyone.
