Cruise Tour From Mykonos to Delos and Rhenia Is a Must-Do

You have probably heard of Delos, a small, uninhabited island under UNESCO protection located near Mykonos. This tiny piece of land is one of the most important archeological sites in Greece – while you’re here, you have to see it. There are many boat tours that take tourists to Delos every day, departing from Chora. They usually start early in the morning and last till the afternoon. You get to enjoy marvelous sea views while on a boat and then soak in the beauty of Greek history.

While everybody knows about this isle near Mykonos, more than a few tourists aren’t familiar with Rhenia. Be sure not to miss out on the opportunity to see Rhenia, another tiny island near Mykonos, while on a cruise to Delos. Although it doesn’t have that much historical significance, you can still enjoy stunning beaches here – they are pretty similar to those on Mykonos but less crowded. If you’re up for a relaxing day, a cruise like this is definitely for you.

Rent a Private Yacht for a Day and Cruise Around Mykonos

Let’s say you want to cruise the nearby islands, but you don’t want to be on a crowded boat. Is there a better solution that will provide you with more comfort? Of course, there is – Mykonos is all about luxury, so it would make perfect sense to get yourself a yacht rental and enjoy sailing with friends or family. Have your own private tour and get the most out of the day on the sea.

Mykonos offers a wide variety of activities, and those include water sports. Whether you’re a beginner or have some experience in these kinds of adventures, you will be able to enjoy endless fun that can be found on more than one great Mykonos beach.

Which Beaches Should You Visit for Water Sports Activities?

There’s no denying that Mykonos has stunning beaches. They are among the best ones in the world, and every single one of them will make you feel like you’re in paradise – including Paradise Beach, of course. But we can’t deny that some places are better than others – in terms of water sports, at least. Here’s which ones would we suggest for a fun, adrenaline-rushing activity on the sea:

  • Elia Beach,
  • Paradise,
  • Ftelia,
  • Kalafatis Beach,
  • Agrari,
  • Platis Gialos.

Don’t Overlook the Beauty of Swimming in Crystal Clear Turquoise Aegean Sea

Sure, water sports are exciting and definitely something to try, but let us not forget the most important thing – the sea, the essence of Greece, and the main reason people come to this beautiful place (besides amazing parties, we might add). You can swim in the clear blue waters and soak in the sun while relaxing on a beach.

Get a cocktail from one of many beach bars and simply enjoy the view – acknowledge what a privilege it is to be able to visit Mykonos. You’re in one of the best places on the planet. Since Mykonos is very small, all the places are pretty close – if you have a car rental, you can visit more than one beach per day.
