The beaches beckon: Judging by the messages we’ve been receiving, and the posts we’ve been seeing on social media, substantially more people are heading to Mykonos for holidays a lot earlier this year than in the travel boom years preceding the pandemic — most likely to make up for vacation opportunities lost during Covid lockdowns and restrictions.

The island welcomed a trickle of tourists in February, and the flow of visitors rose steadily during March.  Advance bookings indicate that April arrivals could set a record. It’s a sharp contrast to pre-Covid times, when May 1 was traditionally considered the beginning of the travel season and few people considered going to Mykonos before then.

 

 

While most of the off-season and early spring travellers realize Mykonos is primarily a summer destination, and expect things to be fairly quiet during their visits, many have still been asking: Which beach clubs will be open?

It’s a question we find surprising, since it suggests many people just aren’t aware that Mykonos and the rest of Greece get blustery weather and cold temperatures in winter — and sometimes even snow (see our posts The powdery white Mykonos  beaches few tourists ever see and After the Elpis snowstorm if you don’t believe us). And though the temperature tends to warm up during April, early spring isn’t the best time to visit if beach activities like sunbathing and swimming are priorities. (August and September are the best months for that.)

For anyone going to Mykonos after mid-April, though, the good news is they might get to spend some time at a beach club or bar, if the weather is decent. Paradise beach club opens on April 12, Principote on April 20, Alemagou on the 21st, Nammos on the 29th, and Tropicana — also at Paradise beach — is starting its season on April 30. At Super Paradise beach, a brand-new spot, Paraj, is aiming to open by the end of April, too. Four other venues — JackieO’ Beach, Pinky Beach, Scorpios and SantAnna — have announced opening dates ranging from May 6 to 16. We expect more will be opening by mid-May, if not sooner, especially if tourist traffic continues to increase significantly.

To see which beach clubs and bars are opening and when, keep scrolling through this post. We have compiled this list of opening dates,  and will be adding venues as soon as they reveal when they plan to start their seasons. So check back for updates. We also have highlighted some new beach clubs that are expected to open this summer. Once they announce their official openings, we’ll update this post with that information.
