Day Trip to Delos

Take a boat from Mykonos to see the World heritage site of Delos, one of the most important mythological and archaeological sites in Greece.

See the 17th century Paraportiani Orthodox Church that overlooks the Aegean Sea and keep your fingers crossed for an encounter with the famous Petros the Pelican, the local mascot. Mikri Venetia, or Little Venice, a picturesque bay, is the best place to soak up that picture-perfect sunsets.

On the northern coast lies Fokos beach. With its amazing taverna, this is the perfect place for a relaxing day in wonderful seclusion. In contrast, the southern coast - home to Paradise beach - is the place to enjoy parties aplenty.
