The centre of the Cyclades Islands, birthplace of the gods Apollo and Artemis and uninhabited for over a thousand years, Delos is one of the most important archaeological sites in Greece. Our English speaking guide will show you around the magnificent ruins of Delos Island, a short boat ride away from Mykonos. Marvel at time standing still on this piece of uninhabited beauty. You will return to Mykonos late afternoon where you are free to spend the afternoon as you choose, wandering back to your hotel after a spot of supper in one of the many cafes, or maybe a trip to the boutiques that line the narrow streets.
Day 4 (CRUISE)
Today you experience Mykonos in a completely different way, by taking a cruise in a caique, or fishing boat around the island. Leaving after breakfast the tour takes you around Mykonos, relaxing on board, stopping at isolated beaches and witnessing the more popular places too. You will also visit the nearby island of Dragonissi, where some of the best snorkelling can be done. If the weather permits you can swim into the caves that line the island. A lunch of barbequed meat, salad, ouzo, retsina and mezes is served at one of the cafes on the way. A traditional way to relax and unwind away from the crowds, this will be a memorable trip. On returning to your hotel, relax some more, maybe taking a swim in the pool before returning to the town later in the evening for dinner and dancing.
Day 5 (MYKONOS)
Today is a free day, yours to do as you please. There is much to do in the town, from taking a meal in the Little Venice area, overlooking the sea and the windmills, after which you can go shopping in the many exclusive boutiques. The gold shopping is particularly fine. The nightlife is something to behold as well, and the streets throb with the music of the clubs until into the small hours of the night. For many, getting lost among the narrow winding streets, meeting up with Petros the Pelican, taking in the colourful balconies and whitewashed houses is an experience in itself. You also have the very valid option if sitting by your hotel pool, relaxing in the Aegean sunshine and making the best of the day by enjoying the views by the pool.
Day 6 (MYKONOS)
In the morning we will arrange for a small hire car to be delivered to you so that you can explore the island at your won pace. The beaches on the other side of the island are magical, and Elia and Super Paradise beaches have some of the best swimming around. You can also get out to the township of Ornos, or go up to the monastery in the middle of the island. The car can get you to more mainstream places such as the clubs at Paradise Beach or the gorgous bays at Agios Ioannis where fans of Shirley Valentine can sit at her beach at enjoy a drink. As this is your last night on the island, make the most of it having dinner at a favourite haunt before finding a club to enjoy your final evening.
