Mykonos Cruise Port
Travelers docking at the port of Mykonos can get just about anywhere on the island during a day ashore. Head into town for a walking tour of the historic and photogenic architecture; catch a ferry to explore Delos, a UNESCO World Heritage Site; embark on a 4WD safari around the island; or pick a beach for a day of sunbathing, snorkeling, and swimming in the Mediterranean waters. Popular sites on the island include the windmills, Little Venice, and aptly named Paradise Beach.
