Meet us at your hotel lobby and get ready to travel to the whitewashed paradise in the heart of the Cycladic islands, Mykonos. Once we’ve dropped you off at port, wave good bye to land-dwellers as you sail out beyond the deep blue sea and enjoy the gentle salty breeze on the deck of the ferry.

Named after Apollo’s grandson, it is said that Mykonos was created from the petrified bodies of giants, slain by the divine hero Hercules. There is something for everyone here, as it offers an exclusive combination of simplicity and glamour. Intertwining strolls through cobble-stone streets adorned with traditional sugar-cube houses and rustic windmills on every hill, with the sizzling “St-Tropez-meets-Ibiza” style nightlife, this destination will undoubtedly meet all your expectations.

Enjoy yourself while exploring the charming main town of Chora, with its bougainvillea trees in purple bloom, and make sure not to miss “Little Venice”, one of the most picturesque waterfronts of the island, an 18th century district, where colorful balconies of grand captains’ mansions are perched over crystal blue waters.

Wherever you may choose to dine on this unescorted tour, locals would recommend tasting the island’s gastronomic trademark appetizer, the “kopanisti”, a soft cheese seasoned with pepper and grated tomato.

Set out to explore the island on the following morning at your own leisure, making plans at your heart’s desire. So, choose any of the wonderful golden sandy beaches and enjoy a refreshing swim in the azure waters after your complimentary hotel breakfast. You might even opt to book yourself passage on a small boat ride, just across, to the World Heritage Site Delos, which, as myth has it, emerged from the bottom of the seas to become the birthplace of the two Olympian twin gods, Artemis and Apollo.

We will be waiting to transfer you back to port in the afternoon but don’t leave without first taking a photo of the characteristic pelicans wandering around the scenic waterfront; an essential part of everyday life in Mykonos. These magnificent birds are a tribute to Petros, the island’s first mascot!

Upon your return, we will meet you at the port, eager to hear all about your experience at this unique destination of palpable energy, superb beaches and pulsating nightlife!

Tips by a local

Mykonos caters for everyone as it is an island that easily combines beautiful sandy beaches and strolls down traditional cobble-stone paths with an exciting nightlife. We recommend you make the most of your time there, and perhaps even visit Delos, just across, if you would like to explore this beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Site.
