Mykonos Town

Mykonos Town ©
A holiday in Mykonos Town offers a chance to relax on picturesque beaches and explore a labyrinth of charming streets lined with traditional white houses.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Elia Beach and Matoyianni Street. You'll get in some beach time at Platis Gialos Beach and Agios Sostis Beach. There's lots more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Paraportiani Church, stroll through Ornos Beach, enjoy the sand and surf at Super Paradise Beach, and stop by Evelin Gallery.

Plan a trip to Mykonos Town easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

Brussels, Belgium to Mykonos Town is an approximately 8-hour flight. You can also do a combination of car and ferry; or do a combination of train, bus, and ferry. The time zone difference moving from Central European Standard Time to Eastern European Standard Time is 1 hour. Plan for a bit warmer temperatures traveling from Brussels in August, with highs in Mykonos Town at 33°C and lows at 27°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 13th (Tue) to allow enough time to ride a ferry to Fira.
