Parties, sunbathing on sugary beaches, and swimming in crystalline waters are all an integral part of a Mykonos holiday experience. Add to all these activities like wandering the meandering cobbled alleys of Mykonos Town, the charming seaside villages with the whitewashed houses and the blue-domed chapels, the vibrant nightlife, and the many opportunities for boutique shopping, and you would still be far from pinpointing what to expect from Mykonos.
Whatever the case might be, words like “luxury” and “VIP holidays” are totally inadequate to describe the unbelievable lavishness that distinguishes Mykonos in its every shape or form. Of course, besides partying and enjoying the sun next to a sandy shore, there is much more to do and pamper yourself with. Here are some tour ideas for your upcoming Mykonos luxury holidays!
- A cooking tour!
Joining a Mykonos cooking class will enable you to learn some secrets of traditional Greek cuisine. Plus, you may treat your palate with delicious Mykonos dishes and even clear your throat with some of the best local wines. Depending on the tour, this could be a venture that ranges from around 2-3 hours and up to 6-8 hours!
- A sailing tour!
It would be a pity to spend time on a Greek island and not pamper yourself with a sea-related experience. A boat tour will allow you to get acquainted with the unbeatable charms of the Aegean Sea, feel the Mediterranean breeze rejuvenating your soul, and visit iconic sights, such as the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Delos (also a site of historical significance). Meanwhile, you can explore the underwater world with snorkeling and sea diving or simply soak up some rays and swim in crystalline waters during the day or around sunset! Such tours usually include food, drinks, and guided tours and can be semi-private or private.
- A beach hopping tour!
Besides the pristine shores around Mykonos Town, the entire Mykonos coastline is full of sugary beaches waiting to welcome you to their crystal-clear azure waters. So, hop on an elegant yacht or catamaran and spend a day out on the waters of the south coast and the most cosmopolitan beaches with a profound party vibe. Alternatively, you could seek more isolated options and charming coves away from the crowds. Swimming, snorkeling, lying on the deck, and sightseeing, combined with great food, refreshing drinks, and other luxury services, usually go with the package.
- A helicopter tour!
If seeing Mykonos from a different angle excites you, then a helicopter ride is a great fit for you. You can choose to have a tour around the Mykonos highlights, such as Little Venice, or even visit nearby islands, such as Delos and Rhenia island. What is more, some helicopter tours may transfer you to other Cyclades islands, including Naxos, Paros, Santorini, and Ios. That way, you get an all-around adventure and view much more than just what is within a close range from your best luxury Mykonos hotel and its world-class luxury services and unsurpassable sea views!
- A hiking tour!
Besides being a party mecca, Mykonos is also one of the most scenic Greek islands. This means that a hiking or walking tour will take you close to things like hidden chapels, small, picturesque villages with traditional Cycladic architecture and friendly locals, trail-crossed steppes, green farmlands, rolling countryside, and magnificent beaches.
Of course, this is just a small taste of things to do in Mykonos, besides having night-long fun and enjoying the vibrant night scene. Feel free to explore your options and add experiences that accommodate your luxury lifestyle and meet your needs as you indulge in the warm sun, the cobalt sea, and the sandy shores the island so generously offers to all.
