I'm over in Mykonos at the same time, is the wind generally the same? 18-30knt? Whats the best beaches for kiting in Mykonos? Cheers.
Mykonos is always windier then Paros or Rhodos because its the first island that faces the north and gets all the Meltemies wind with out any island obstacles. So if there is no wind in Paros I always take a 45 minute ferry boat to Mykonos because you will find more wind there. For example if they are calling for North winds (15 to 20 knots) in Paros for sure it will be blowing (22 to 35 knots) in Mykonos, but again the beaches are not as friendly as Paros but the good thing is that not a lot of people kite in Mykonos. But the places to kite in Mykonos will be: "MEGALI AMOS
". If its blowing (25 to 35 knots) in FTELIA
you will have some big waves because FTELIA
is well know for wave riding. Also be careful with the windsurfers because they were here first. This was my spot when I use to windsurf. They also have a very nice restaurant on the side of the beach. On the other hand, MEGALI AMOS
are good for flat-choppy waters. But again the best place to start kiting will be in KORFOS
because its easy access and you have a nice kite club there to help you out.
Also after you are done kiting make sure to go to SUPER PARADISE beach for some real Greek fun. This place starts partying at 4 pm and ends around 6 am.
P.S. These are some pictures of MYKONOS.
