How to Spend 3 Days in Mykonos

How to Spend 3 Days in Mykonos

Three days on Mykonos means you’ll have enough time to explore the windy streets of the capital city and surrounding countryside, visit the ruins of Delos, sample some local cuisine, and even explore another Greek island. Read on for tips on how to make the most of your time.

Day 1: Around Mykonos

Start your morning with a walking tour of Mykonos Town (Chora), the island’s capital city and alluring port town. The community is best-known for its thatched windmills and whitewashed architecture, but you won’t want to miss a stroll through Little Venice or a chance to visit the archaeological and folklore museums. After lunch, hop in a Jeep for an island safari to some of the lesser-visited areas of Mykonos, including quiet villages, golden beaches, and ancient ruins. In the evening, grab an outdoor table at a local restaurant for an alfresco dinner of Greek seafood with views over the harbor.

Day 2: Legends and Local Food

This morning, get an early start for the quick ferry ride to the neighboring island of Delos, the mythical birthplace of Apollo and Artemis and an important UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visit with a historian to learn more about the intersection of history and legend while you visit important archaeological sites such as the Temple of Apollo, Sanctuary of Artemis, Sacred Way, and the famous Terrace of the Lions, dating back to 600 BC. Upon return to Mykonos in the afternoon, take some time to explore the island’s culinary landscape. Learn to prepare traditional dishes during a hands-on cooking class at a local farm, or head to an island winery for a guided tasting of local varietals, followed by a traditional Hellenic barbecue at Mykonos Spiti, a local home turned restaurant.

Day 3: Fun in the Aegean Sea

Mykonos makes an excellent base for beach hopping through the Aegean Sea. Board a catamaran this morning for a day of sailing to secret coves and pristine beaches far from the crowds. Charter your own boat for the entire day, or opt for the value of a small-group cruise in the morning, leaving your afternoon free for snorkeling, swimming, or scuba diving in the blue waters just off the coast. End your magical Mykonos excursion with an equally magical sunset cruise.
