What do people do in the Greek party capitol Mykonos in the rain?
Well, honestly not too much! We were determined not to let the rain ruin our two days in Mykonos and while we didn't get to do much, there are definitely things to do when it rains in Mykonos! So then we asked locals what people do when it's rainy and cold in Mykonos, they said they stay home! We knew this wasn't going to be our fate and we wanted to explore. Here are the things I suggest doing in Mykonos in the rain.
1. Rent a car and try getting out of the city.
There are spots outside of your hotel to explore in Mykonos. A car was only 30 Euros for a day and so we easily used a car to get around as it was raining. There are very few cabs in Mykonos, so getting around can be difficult.
2. Go to a museum
Mykonos surprisingly has a lot of museums. We made a huge mistake and looked at times online (they were wrong...) call ahead and check times with the museum before going!There are several museums in Mykonos that you can visit. Check them out here.
3. Eat lots of good food!
Seriously there is a lot of good food here. I crave the salad I had in Little Venice at least weekly. So wish it was here in the US! We found the food and drinks to be more pricey in Mykonos than other places, but you can still easily eat every meal for under $15. We ate A LOT while we were there and I highly recommend any little shop that looks full.
4. Shop, shop, shop
There are so many good stores in Old Town Mykonos. We got most of our souvenirs here, but they weren't your typical souvenirs. We got awesome hand made soaps, hand made jewelry, yummy olive oil, and other local goods. So many shops we went into were owned by local artists and we had a blast speaking with different shop owners about life on Mykonos.
5. Walk the streets
Need I say more? The colors seemed to pop even more with cloudy skies and we got lost on the little streets many times in Mykonos Town.
6. Go to a spa
There are some awesome spas in Mykonos. They are a bit pricey, but can be worth it. Call early because on rainy days, spots fill up fast!
7. Take in the sunset after the storm
This sunset speaks for itself. While the day was rainy, the sky cleared just in time for an incredible sunset over the water. It was an amazing sight!
I wish I could say there is more to do, but honestly these are the things we could find to do and there you have it. Don't lose out on Mykonos just because of the rain! Make the most of your trip and try one of these easy things to do in Mykonos in the rain.
