Why choose a cruise to Mykonos Town?
A Mykonos Town cruise is a holiday to remember for many reasons. This is the main town on perhaps the most famous of Greece’s many islands, and it is certainly the most cosmopolitan, meaning that you can indulge and be pampered as you learn about the history and the legends that combine to create Mykonos as it is today. Mykonos Town is glamorous without being over the top, and simple without being boring. It is where cultures meet and mingle and where, if you’re looking to have fun, you’ll most certainly find it.
A guide to Mykonos Town’s hotspots
Although the island of Mykonos itself is stunning all over, there is something particularly special about Mykonos Town, and there is plenty to do; after all, when you book a Mykonos Town cruise, you want to be entertained and relaxed in equal measure.
Little Venice is a definite hotspot in Mykonos. This area is found down by the shore and is one of the most peaceful, relaxing places in the town (or even the entire island, come to that). You can sit and enjoy a drink in a tiny piano bar, or listen to classical music from a seat right by the beach. If you want something more lively, you can also find some exciting nightclubs a little further away.
Something that shouldn’t be missed when in Mykonos is a boat trip to nearby Delos. It takes just 20 minutes, and is an uninhabited rocky island. Back in the 9th century BC, the entire area was covered in temples and other religious buildings. There are even remains of a theatre, and the marble columns are highly impressive.

The best time to visit Mykonos Town
Mykonos has wonderful weather all year round thanks to its fantastic position in the Aegean Sea, but if you want to avoid the crowds as much as possible, September and October are the best times of year to go. You can still happily sunbathe on the beach and eat al fresco, and you’ll have a bit more room to breathe.
