Mykonos: The most famous and popular of the Greek Cyclades Islands
Mykonos is the most famous and popular of the Greek Cyclades Islands, welcoming nearly one million vacationers every year.
Many, who think of Mykonos, automatically think of its reputation as a party island, but this beautiful destination holds many other treats that render it an ideal stopover during your Mediterranean cruise vacation.
Step off your MSC cruise ship and enter a world of color, where the azure crystal sea competes with the deep blue skies. The island’s fishing industry is kept alive in the colourful waterfront cottages, painted in different shades to help fishermen identify their homes from the sea.
Mykonos is an island rich in natural beauty and history, yet is cosmopolitan in character.
We will help you make the most of your time off the ship with our comprehensive list of excursions and some great deals on local sights.
You can discover Mykonos Town - also called ‘Hora’ - on foot; indeed the whole of Mykonos island is relatively small and thus easy to explore. Hora is considered one of the most beautiful towns on the island due to its archetypal island-postcard image. There are many excellent places to sunbathe and swim, whilst couples and honeymooners will enjoy finding the most romantic spot amidst all the idyllic scenery!
One of the best days out is found a short island-hop away in Delos, which is steeped in ancient history and legend.
