The 7 Best Tours & 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 your hotel or the 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.)
Awesome boat tour with swimming, food, and unlimited drinks. Lots of swimming and snorkeling. Good fun.
After a 45-minute boat ride to Delos, explore the ancient island with a fully accredited guide. Delos (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) is one of the best-preserved and most important historical sites in Greece and the best day trip from Mykonos. If you’re interested in visiting Delos, we recommend taking a guided tour; there are loads of ruins, but few signs, so it can be difficult to know what you’re looking at without a guide.
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 of 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. There is also a good Delos and Rhenia Islands Boat Trip with a similar itinerary.
A super fun way to spend a day out on the water. Lots to eat and drink (and the food is surprisingly good quality). Lie on the deck, swim, snorkel, or sight-see 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.
Note: Both of the previous boat tours get fully booked from late June to early September. If that’s the case, the Full-Day Mykonos Catamaran Cruise is an excellent alternative – it’s a little more expensive but the food is also better.
Starts with a walking tour of Mykonos Town and then visits the best sights, small villages (like Ano Mera below), and small hidden churches all over the island.
This photo is from a helicopter tour I took of Mykonos (awesome but expensive) and I thought the aerial view gave a good overview of the Mykonos landscape. Beautiful beaches backed by rolling countryside with a mix of green farmland and trail-crossed steppes. Which all makes for a great hike. The hike ends with a swim at a beach.
The Best Free Thing To Do in Mykonos
Mykonos Beach Walk
Walk from Platis 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 Platis Gialos and 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 Platis Gialos.
