Beautiful and breathtaking. These are just a few words to describe Mykonos. And if you are to spend a week in the island, then be prepared for an experience you will never forget! To help you experience Mykonos to the fullest though, here are some points you need to consider:
Mykonos, along with Santorini, is the most expensive island in Greece. A 500 Euros budget for a week will be enough when you are going to Skopelos, Kos, and Skiathos, but not in Mykonos! Each day in island, you can allot 100 Euros to spend for your food and tours – but this does not cover your accommodation yet as the cheapest hotel in the island can cost about 80 Euros per night.
Getting out at night in Mykonos for nightlife whilst definitely fun is very expensive. The bigger clubs can charge at 10 Euros at the very least, and this just for the entrance! A more realistic budget for a week in Mykonos is 1000 Euros.
You will have a handful of the top Mykonos attractions to choose from. But to save you time – and money – going from one place to another, choose those that are in proximity to one another. For instance, you can explore the landmarks and sights in Chora. This capital of the island has a lot of interesting things to enjoy which include its tiny streets and colorful houses. You can also visit its museums – there’s a lot in town – or take a dip in its beaches. The latter is one of the many prides of Mykonos, especially because it is blessed with a favorable weather all year round.
Making a comprehensive itinerary of your planned Mykonos activities will give so much convenience for your week-long stay in the island.
A week in Mykonos may be pricey but with careful planning, you’ll realize the island is worth every cent you spend.
