The best boat tours to beaches and day trip islands from Mykonos.

The 7 Best Tours on Mykonos

1. Full-Day Small Yacht Cruise to Rhenia Island – Swim, snorkel, and sunbathe from the yacht and on the uninhabited island of Rhenia. Lunch and open bar with unlimited wine and beer is included. This is a private tour with for up to 8 guests. It’s a bit on the expensive side but if you splurge on anything make it this. Recommended!

2. Small Yacht Cruise to Delos & Rhenia Islands – Similar to above cruise but also includes a visit to the ancient historical island of Delos. So, less swimming and more history – just depends what you want.

3. Mykonos to Delos 4-Hour Tour – It’s a 45 minute boat ride to Delos and then explore the ancient island with a fully accredited guide.

4. Mykonos Full-Day Jeep Safari – An 8 hour exploration of the quieter and less-visited parts of Mykonos. Very fun.

5. Full-Day Mykonos South Coast Cruise Tour – Awesome boat cruise with lots of beaches, swimming, snorkeling and a full lunch.

6. Explore the Island of Mykonos: Half-Day Tour – Starts in Mykonos Town and visits the best beaches, small villages (like Ano Mera), and small hidden chapels all over the island.

7. 3-Hour Sunset Cruise to Delos Island – A late-evening boat tour to Delos with sightseeing along the way and a few glasses of wine as the sun goes down.

10 Questions and Comments

  1. Best Day Trip from Mykonos

    Hey Dave,
    I am going to be visiting in mid may. We have kept 4 days in Mykonos. Any suggestions on a day trip to islands nearby?


    1. Santorini DaveSantorini Dave The Guide to Greece

      Delos (greek history) and Rhenia (beaches and swimming) are the two best day trips from Mykonos. The bigger islands (Naxos, Paros, Santorini) are difficult to make work for a day trip – especially in May when ferries are not as frequent as summer.

  2. Mykonos Boat Tour to Rhenia Island

    Hi Dave, I have found your website so helpful for planning our upcoming trip. It seems that the link for the “Full day small yacht cruise to Rhenia Island” on the Mykonos day tours page is not working. Could you direct me to that tour?

    Thanks so much!

      If you’re on the fence then wait and see if that’s how you want to spend your time once you’re on the island. If you’re certain there’s something you want to do (e.g. Delos) then book as early as possible.

  4. Mykonos, Crete, or Zakynthos for 2 Days in Late October

    Hi Dave,

    Your sharing have indeed been so helpful towards my planning to Greece. I will be travelling at the end of October. Due to my limited travelling time, I would like to catch the best of all in Greece.

    Between Mykonos, Crete, & Zakynthos, which is best?
    Which will be a better choice? I intend to stay 2 nights in either one of the above.

    1. Santorini DaveSantorini Dave The Guide to Greece

      Mykonos and Crete are the best choices. Mykonos is small and thus the best choice for a quick 2 night trip. But, it will be very quiet by the end of October. Not quite “completely dead” but not lively by any stretch. Chania on Crete will still have plenty going on and has a great array of restaurants that should all still be open. It doesn’t quite give the idyllic greek-island feel as it’s a medium-sized town on a large island – but it’s great nonetheless.

  5. Tour to Best Mykonos Beaches

    Do you need to do a tour to get to the best Mykonos Beaches (quiet and secluded beaches) or just rent a car and do a self-tour?

    1. Santorini DaveSantorini Dave The Guide to Greece

      To get to the quiet and remote ones, yes, a tour is good – and a boat tour better. But for the most popular ones close to Mykonos Town a rental car is fine for getting around. In fact, bus is the best as you can take it to Psarou or Platys Gialos then walk to Paranga and Paradise beaches along a coastal path that is both beautiful and dotted with little swimming spots. The tours are fun though.
