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.

… just two days after a massive thunderstorm system moved across the Aegean, soaking Mykonos with heavy morning downpours

 

Sunshine & storms, wind & waves: I arrived on Mykonos in warm, brilliant sunshine on May 14 … and that’s exactly what the weather was like when I left the island eight days later. But during the days in between, there was an incredible variety of weather conditions unlike anything I’ve experienced on Mykonos before.

On my seven previous visits to Mykonos, the weather had been predominantly sunny and warm. Some days were windy, some mornings and evenings were downright chilly, the sky was hazy on a few afternoons, and there were two brief rainshowers between dawn and breakfast time on two separate mornings back in May 2006. Overall, there was excellent weather for sightseeing, hiking and beach activities during each of my holidays. This year, Mother Nature made sure I experienced Mykonos in just about every kind of spring weather condition imaginable.
