The best time to visit Mykonos for your honeymoon is from June to September/ October. The weather is warm and sunny and therefore ideal for being out and about and also for water activities. However, if you are looking to avoid crowds, it would be best to avoid planning your trip between June and August as it is peak tourist season here; you would also spend more if you visit during this time. On the other hand, if you don’t mind not being able to swim much, the spring season (March to May) is also a good option as the weather is still sunny.
