Best Thing To Do on Mykonos: My #1 thing to do on Mykonos is to walk from Platys Gialos Beach to Paradise Beach making stops at beach side bars and restaurants along the way. You’ll pass Agia Anna and Paraga beaches and several other small swimming coves. Super fun and free! (Besides what you spend on food and drinks, of course.) If you’re staying in Mykonos Town take the bus to Platys Gialos then start walking along the beach towards the east. If you walk straight to Paradise Beach it will take about an hour (without stops). Then bus back from Paradise to Mykonos Town.
The 7 Best Tours on Mykonos
Delos 4-Hour Tour – It’s a 45 minute boat ride to Delos and then explore the ancient island with a fully accredited guide. Delos is one of the best preserved and most important historical sites in Greece and the top day trip from Mykonos.
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!
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.
Mykonos Full-Day Jeep Safari – An 8 hour exploration of the quieter and less-visited parts of Mykonos. Very fun and the best day trip around the island.
Full-Day Mykonos South Coast Cruise Tour – Awesome boat cruise with lots of beaches, swimming, snorkeling and a full lunch.
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.
3-Hour Sunset Cruise to Delos Island – A late-evening boat tour to Delos with sightseeing along the way (but you don’t get off the boat in Delos) and a few glasses of wine as the sun goes down. Simple but fun.
