How to Spend 2 Days on Mykonos

How to Spend 2 Days on Mykonos

With picturesque villages, ancient ruins, and stunning natural surroundings, there’s a lot to do on Mykonos. Two days gives you ample time to experience the island by land and by sea, as well as explore the archaeological site on neighboring Delos. Here are some tips for how to spend 48 hours on Mykonos.

Day 1: History and Heritage

**Morning:**Get oriented this morning with a walking tour of Mykonos Town, home to whitewashed churches, thatched windmills, and narrow streets right off a postcard. Most tours include a stroll through Little Venice and flower-draped Matogianni, as well as stops at the Folklore Museum and the Archaeological Museum of Mykonos.

**Afternoon:**After lunch, board a ferry for a short sail to the island of Delos, a UNESCO World Heritage Site straight out of Greek history and mythology. Tour the mythical birthplace of Apollo and Artemis—one of the country’s most important archaeological sites—with a guide who can interpret what you’re seeing.

**Night:**Now that you’ve toured up an appetite, settle in for a traditional Mykonian meal in a local home turned restaurant. Learn about the island’s unique culinary customs and cooking techniques while you sip Cretan brandy (called raki) and typical dishes, such as stuffed tomatoes and peppers, tzatziki, beef with orzo, and fresh spinach pie.

Day 2: Island Adventure

**Morning:**Today’s all about adventure, starting out on land. Get off the beaten tourist track with a morning Jeep safari around the island, or head out on foot on a hiking tour through the island’s rural interior. 

**Afternoon:**In the afternoon, cool off with some time in the water. Enjoy swimming and sunbathing on a local beach—Paradise, Ornos, or Kalafatis—or, for something a little more active, go snorkeling or scuba diving in the blue Aegean waters in search of seahorses, parrotfish, barracuda, and other marine life. 

**Night:**After a day of activity, unwind this evening during a relaxing sunset cruise along the coast of Mykonos. Enjoy views of Little Venice and the ruins of Delos Island in the light of the setting sun as you sip cocktails and munch on light bites from the deck—a fitting end to the ultimate 2-day trip.
