Mykonos in April

I am wanting to plan a trip to Mykonos in the beginning of April of 2009. I'm starting to wonder if hotels are open there in April. Could someone help me out with this question and what the weather might be like that time of year?

Welcome teedeeandchelchel:-) Sounds like you've got some plans already in progress for early April but could you possibly make it May? Although many hotels do begin operation in Apri, the weather can be super 'iffy' at that time...can be sunny/warm or you can easily get cloudy/rainy weather! Wouldn't plan on any swimming at that time....Most places (cafes, tavernas, etc.) usually start opening up early May so it will still be on the 'quiet side' except for the local businesses open for the year-round residents! You're travelling a distance so if it's the sunny isle/beach experience you're looking for, would plan it a bit later:-)) Happy planning and Enjoy!

In town some hotels are open year round. Tourist hotels open with the first charterflights arriving beginning May. Next year the Greek Orthodox Easter Sunday is on April 19th. Some hotels open for the feast and close again. The weather? Nobody knows. Statistics say: day 14°C-19°, night 10°C-14°. Wind 4Bft. Sometimes little rain.

I was in Mykonos the first week of May 2008.

While the weather was great mid 70's and sunny, the water was way too cold to swim in. That was a shame because it is so beautiful. Also nightlife was dead except for the weekend. If I were to go again it would be the last week in May or first week in June before it gets crazy busy.

One more hint check out when Greek Easter is next year as that will affect travel to the islands. This year it was April 28.
