Mykonos Cruises

This scenic Greek island has long been a playground for celebrities and partygoers, made popular by shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis and his jet set crowd in the 1960s. Today’s Mykonos offers dance-till-dawn nightclubs on its sandy beaches, but there’s a tranquil side to the island as well suitable for couples, solo travellers and families alike. Visit ancient ruins at Delos, have fun in the island’s waterparks, or soak in the local culture. The island’s popular with artists, who love painting its whitewashed homes and iconic windmills, framed by the turquoise waters of the Aegean Sea.

What You Need To Know About Mykonos

How to reach Mykonos from the cruise terminal?

Visitors to Mykonos usually arrive at Tourlos port, which is a short shuttle bus ride away to the centre. If you’re arriving in the island’s Old Port, you’ll find plenty of attractions within walking distance including a bevy of cafes, restaurants and shops. To get around Mykonos, there are loads of transport options. You’ll find a taxi rank at Manto Mavrogenous Square, and there are two bus stations serving the island. One of the most exciting ways to get around, though, is by boat! These depart from the old port with regularly scheduled stops around the island.

What are the can’t-miss sights in Mykonos?

Probably the most iconic sight in Mykonos is the row of Venetian windmills positioned on the hilltop above the town of Hora, beckoning you into the port. These were built in the 16th century, and originally used to grind wheat! Don’t miss a visit to the Mykonian Folklore Museum with its period furniture and heritage fabrics, or visit the Archaeological Museum if you want to see artefacts that are a tad older (thousands of years older!) like pottery, figurines and jewellery. Have a wander around Little Venice, named for its charming balconies hanging over the sea. Here you’ll find sleek boutiques and restaurants, as well as the resident Petro Pelican island mascot.

Typical food and restaurants in Mykonos?

Like most of the Greek islands, Mykonos cuisine relies heavily on the fresh seafood that comes straight from the warm waters surrounding it. Visit harbourside restaurant Rouvera where if you order the catch of the day, the fish will be shown to you before it’s cleaned and grilled to perfection. You’ll also find typical Greek dishes like gyros, souvlaki, meze and moussaka on offer in the island’s wide variety of eateries. Try succulent grilled lamb served with a side of stuffed tomatoes or cabbage, or opt for a light, fresh Greek salad with tomato, feta and cucumber to cool down on a summer’s day.

MYKONOS - DID YOU KNOW?

Away from the main town, one of the top attractions nearby is the small, rocky island of Delos. This is considered to be the spiritual centre of the Cyclades, widely regarded as a holy place for millennia. It features heavily in mythology, with legend holding that Delos is the birthplace of twin gods Artemis and Apollo, and today you’ll find loads of fascinating ruins to explore.

Do you want to learn more about traditional life in and around the water? Visit the Aegean Maritime Museum where you can see models of ships from centuries past, rare coins, nautical specialities and an impressive library of unusual books.

After you’ve explored the waters by boat, why not take a tour under the waves? Mykonos is a popular destination for scuba diving and snorkelling, allowing you to see the abundant, colourful sea life and shipwrecks lurking below. Dive centres are located throughout the island, at Kalafatis, Psarou Beach and Paradise beach.

Shopping is a top pastime in Mykonos, with its trendy designer shops, quirky boutiques and colourful local markets. Are you on the hunt for souvenirs? Look for trinkets and mementoes with a windmill theme, handcrafted leather items, and white cotton clothing perfect for lounging in the island’s sunshine!
