Embracing Mykonos: Understanding Local Customs and Etiquette

To truly appreciate your visit to Mykonos, it’s important to respect and understand the local customs.

Greetings: A simple “Yassas” (Hello) and “Efharisto” (Thank You) can go a long way in making positive connections.

Dress Code: While beachwear is acceptable on the beaches, it’s recommended to dress modestly when visiting churches or monasteries. Always carry a scarf or a shawl to cover your shoulders and avoid wearing short shorts or mini skirts in religious places.

Tipping: Service charge is often included in your restaurant bill, but it’s still customary to leave a small tip (5-10%) if you’re happy with the service.

Respect the Environment: Mykonos’ natural beauty is one of its greatest assets. Please help preserve it by not littering, respecting wildlife, and being mindful of your environmental footprint.

Remember, the key to a great travel experience is respect – for the people, the culture, and the environment. Enjoy your stay in beautiful Mykonos!
