Whitewashed iconic beauty; gold and blue beaches; paparazzi- hunted, misbehaving celebrities; 24/7 partying; a tantalizing, all-permeating buzz and the delicious hyperbole of the good life. Mykonos is indeed heavenly in the summer. But then again so it is, no matter what the time of the year. Take Mykonos in September for instance. The standard tourist hordes are gone by now, yet the trademark electrifying vibes are still going (extra) strong. To the mix add the gorgeous weather, with plenty of sunshine but less hair wrecking Μeltemi gusts, and you will understand why it is one of the best months to visit the island of the winds. But there is even more to it. Read on for what it is like to be in Mykonos in September.
Why visit Mykonos in September:
The weather is just right
With typical temperatures ranging from 20 degrees Celsius (68 degrees Fahrenheit) to 28 C (82 F), and the water boasting an ideal average of 25 C (77 F), the swimsuit season is very much on in Mykonos in September. Relish this glorious Indian summer on the beach, at this time of year mercifully without the hoi polloi. Or if you are looking for a spot of excitement to boot, head to the Semeli 5 star Mykonos Town Hotel, to lounge by its large, freshwater pool along with the hip set.
The Harvest season is on
Traditionally the month of the harvest, September is a time of elation and joy throughout Greece. Yet in this distinctly Dionysian island, which has loved a good party since antiquity, merrymaking gets elevated into a wholly new level. Grape crushing is being held in various wineries throughout Mykonos in September and it is accompanied by copious feasting on local wine and foods along with traditional music and dancing. Friends and families but also adventuresome strangers are welcomed to partake in this most unique, primordial kind of experience. And should you choose to do so you’ll certainly remember it forever. What’s even better? At the end of your fun-filled (albeit physically tiring day- grape crushing does involve some hard manual labour!), the luxurious Aegeo Spa at the Semeli Luxury Mykonos Town hotel will be at your disposal to revive and restore you with a range of detox therapies. Surely they’ll come handy after all the wine!
The high life scene is still thriving, but prices are (much) nicer
Harvest festivities aside, the trademark Mykonos party scene is still going strong in September.
