The 5 Best Tours and Things To Do in Mykonos
This is an absolutely wonderful Greek cooking class: fun, informative, great food. And the wine flows freely. It lasts a little less than 6 hours and starts at 10am or 4pm with free transfer from hotel or cruise port. Highly recommended. If you only do one organized activity in Mykonos make it this one. (It’s rare for kids to do the class but when they do they have a blast.)
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 best day trip from Mykonos.
Note: Both of the following boat tours get fully booked from late June to early September. If so, the Full-Day Catamaran Cruise (with Fresh Lunch) is an excellent alternative – though it is a little more expensive.
Swim, snorkel, and sunbathe from the yacht and along the coast of the uninhabited island of Rhenia. Light lunch (on the yacht) and a couple drinks are included. Then have a 90 minute guided tour of the ancient island of Delos. This is a semi-private tour and there is a maximum of 10 guests on the boat.
A super fun way to spend a day out on the water. Lots to eat and drink (and food is surprisingly good quality). Lie on the deck, swim, snorkel, or sightsee as you make your way around the Mykonos coastline. This one is a little expensive but worth it for the small group size and luxury service.
Starts with a walking tour of Mykonos Town and then visits the best sights, small villages (like Ano Mera above), and small hidden churches all over the island.
Best Free Thing To Do in Mykonos
Walk from Platys Gialos Beach to Paradise Beach making stops at beach 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’re facing the water walk to your left). There are several great places to eat along the walk. If you hike straight to Paradise Beach it will take about an hour (without stops). Then bus back from Paradise to Mykonos Town. Or take the water taxi back to Platys Gialos.
