I've had a look through previous posts in regards to some of these questions but was hoping to get some up to date information for a planned trip next year.
I've been given the opportunity to travel next year (early May) to Mykonos and have some queries before I book. Firstly, I know that the island won't be 'in full swing' at this time but I wondered whether there would be enough open and happening without it feeling too quiet? I have visited Santorini at this time of year and loved it and wondered whether Mykonos would have the same feel? I know that the 'clubby' side of Mykonos won't be at it's peak but that's not what I'm going for, I just want to experience the island itself (however an odd night out would be quite nice!!)
I would also like to visit some of the other nearby islands such as Tinos possibly Paros etc.. and wondered whether anyone had been on trips to these islands at this time of year? I have looked at the ferry websites but haven't really been able to see whether seajets etc,, are in operation this early in May? I know that the ferry companies release their schedules quite late but wondered whether they had been operating this year, at this time?
Also, I am torn between staying in Mykonos town or somewhere like Ornos? I will hire a car so getting around will be easy but can't decide whether I want to stay in the town so am in walking distance when I want to go into town or whether I would get a 'nicer' feel for the island if I stay outside? Any thoughts on this would be gratefully appreciated.
Thanks in advance for any help!
