When visiting Mykonos by Cruise Ship you probably have limited time in Mykonos Port and wish to take the most out of it. Whether you are taking a Mykonos shore excursion or touring Mykonos on your own, here is the info on Mykonos Cruise Ports, as well as a few suggestions on what to do in Mykonos in a day.

There are 2 Cruise Port Terminals in Mykonos

1) Tourlos Port by docking - Tourlos Port (also known as New Port) has a Cruise Ship Dock. Its located about 1.5 km/1 mile north of Mykonos town in Tourlos, very close to Agios Stefanos beach. Your Cruise Line might provide you with a shuttle bus service to take you from your Cruise Port to Mykonos Town Harbor (also known as Old Port) which is located at the north end of Mykonos Town. You can walk into town from Tourlos Port but the road is narrow and without sidewalks. There is a sea-bus service operating between the Tourlos Cruise Port and Mykonos Town, for approx 2 € per person.

2) Mykonos Town by tenders - Some Cruise Ships anchor at sea and passengers are taken to Mykonos Town by tender, disembarking right by the Town Hall and Delos Ferries Pier.

Touring Mykonos on your own and what to do in a day:

• Take a stroll through Mykonos Town - If you are arriving to Mykonos by Cruise Ship, we highly recommend you visit the quaint and beautiful Mykonos Town. Its white washed buildings and labyrinth-like narrow streets are going to leave a long lasting impression on you.
While in Mykonos Town, find your way to a couple of top attractions: Windmills, Little Venice and Paraportiani church. All these attractions are not far from each other, which leaves you time for either shopping or relaxing with "Ouzo with Mezze" by the sea.
There are no vehicles allowed in Mykonos Town, so have in mind that it is all walking on an uneven surface.

• Go to a beach - Mykonos is very famous for its beaches and actually has some of the best beaches in Greece, especially on the south shore.
Beaches for couples and families: Platis Yialos, Ornos, Saint Stefanos
Beaches with watersports: Psarou, Platis Yialos, Kalafatis, Super Paradise
Party beaches: Paradise, Super Paradise, Paranga.

• Enjoy a lunch by the sea - There are so many places to eat in Mykonos with a wide food range, so it is not a surprise that many call it a gastronomic paradise. We highly recommend a meal by the sea, at the beach or in Mykonos Town.
Most of the beaches border with traditional taverns and nice restaurants and some even have tables and chairs placed on the beach sand.
Mykonos Town's water-front is great place to relax and have a meal, as it has a dozen cafe-restaurants. Little Venice area is also known for good restaurants but it's more expensive.
