  Wind on the beach!
by wadekorzan

Though it is not dangerous, you probably should know that July and August are the windy months on Mykonos, when the so-called "meltemi" winds come in. The winds are great when you are lying on the beach and it is so hot, because it really does cool things down, but keep in mind that if you plan to take a day trip to Delos Island (which you should), then the boats only go if it is not too windy. If it is windy (but not too windy), the boats do go but some people who suffer from sea sickness have a hard time even if it is only a 30 minute boat ride. Also the winds can kick up the sand into your eyes so it is a good idea to keep your sunglasses on!
