Best Mykonos Excursions & Tours
Mykonos is a Greek island, part of the Cyclades, and is a very popular Mediterranean cruise port. Thousands a year flock for the island's vibrant nightlife, crystal clear waters, and award-winning restaurants. Compared to the world-renowned Santorini, Mykonos offers better beaches, archeological wonders, and so much more. Explore Mykonos and everything it has to offer.
There's no shortage of incredible beaches on this Greek island. Here are some of our favorites and why.
Considered the most beautiful beach on the island's southwest coast, Agios has soft sand and clear blue waters. From there, cruisers can enjoy an amazing view over the island of Delos. It's a good place to get away from it all, but not too close to the town to be overwhelmed by tourists.
Elia is the largest beach in Mykonos. The beach is largely family-friendly with lots of beach cafes and places to eat. Embodying a fun, carefree atmosphere, it's no wonder that it's one of Mykonos' most popular beach destinations. Elia is 25 minutes by car from Mykonos Town.
Popular with families who enjoy watersports, this beach is on the eastern side of the island. Sailing, windsurfing, snorkeling, scuba diving, and more await at Kalafati. Feeling thirsty or hungry? Upscale open-air bars and seafood restaurants line the shore.
The most famous of all of Mykonos' beaches, Paradise is what a party beach is all about. It attracts crowds who dance, drink, and listen to the music playing at several bars and restaurants. Paradise is just 20 minutes from the center of Mykonos Town. It's also within walking distance of four other beaches: Paraga, Agia Anna, Platys Gialos, and Psarou.
Discover Mykonos' ancient heritage at their popular archeological sites that date back thousands of years.
Delos is next to Mykonos and is the island where Apollo was born, based on Greek mythology. The entire island was dedicated to the Greek god of the sun, and worshipers from all over the Mediterranean would come to honor him. It's currently an open archeology site with fascinating monuments and a museum. Delos was added to the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Greece back in 1990.
Mykonos is considered a small island, - but with everything that there is to see and do, tourists can spend several days sightseeing.
Mykonos is one of the most developed islands in Greece for tourism - there are regular ferries all year long, but itineraries are most frequent during the summer. Tourists can ferry to Athens, Santorini, Paros, Naxos, Crete, Tinos, and more. All ferries to Mykonos dock at the New Port of Mykonos, just minutes away from the Main Town in a car.
Old Town Mykonos, otherwise known as Chora (also known as "Mykonos Town" or "Hora", is the picturesque capital and largest town on the island. It's a mostly pedestrian maze of narrow streets with cubic whitewashed houses. It's essentially a traditional Cycladic village, with bougainvilleas, small white churches, and colorful windows, doors, and balconies. Visitors can explore on their own or do a walking tour with a small group.
There are several iconic churches across the island. The Panagia Paraportiani Church dates back to the 1400s, and it's considered a perfect example of Cycladic architecture. Panagia Paraportiani is classified as a national monument and can be found in the town of Chora. The architecture of the monastery of Panagia Tourliani is just as impressive. Originally built in 1542 by two priests, the monastery was restored in 1767 and is located in Ano Mera village.
Food & Fun
The island is known for its impressive beaches and nightlife, but the culinary scene further adds to its charm. From fine-dining and internationally acclaimed restaurants to street food and traditional bakeries, Mykonos has something for everyone. However, if you're more interested in drinking and dancing, there is no better place to party. From confetti-dropping bottle-popping mega-club experiences to intimate live music bars, most of them are within walking distance of the island's main hub of Old Town.
