1. Hello,

    I was wondering, were you able to go swimming in the ocean in May? I wanted to go this may around the 12th-21st. I’m second guessing it though b/c i’m not sure if the water will be warm enough or if it’ll be hot either. Please let me know you’re experience. Thanks!

      May swimming on Mykonos depends upon your tolerance for cool to cold water. The daytime temperature should be warm — mid- to high 70s, and sometimes hotter — but the sea (and swimming pool hotels) take a long time to get warmed up by the sun. Sometimes the water is ice-cold, so only a few people go swimming, while other times it’s a little less frigid and a few more people get in the water. Last May I saw more people in the water at Platis Gialos, Paraga and Paradise beaches than in previous years; it was still cold, but not as bad as I recalled other Mays. I can’t handle cold water and found the water too cold just for wading, but that’s me. Still enjoyed being at the beaches, though.
