8 hours mid October what to do in Mykonos ?

This is one of our cruise ship ports. We do not want to go to Delos ! What is there to do near the port. Middle aged couple in good shape, do not necessarily like shopping. Any suggestions ?

1. Re: 8 hours mid October what to do in Mykonos ?

Mykonos has two ports. One is the New Port in the island's Tourlos area. Not much in the vicinity of this port apart from several restaurants near the port entrance/exit, and the Agios Stefanos beach area a 15-minute walk away. If this is where your ship docks, there likely will be shuttle buses to take passengers to and from Mykonos Town.

The second port is at Mykonos Town, but cruise ships can't dock there. Instead, they tender passengers ashore. If this is the case with your ship, you will walk off the tender boat only steps from the heart of Mykonos Town. If you want to stay close to the port, you can spend your time wandering around Mykonos Town. Yes, there are some streets lined with colourful shops, but you're not required to go in them. There are many more that are just interesting to walk around. The Town has several museums; there also is a municipal art gallery and a number of private art galleries, but it's possible most or even all of the galleries could be closed by mid October. Walking up some of the hillsides overlooking the town will give you a chance to take in the scenery and some great views.

If the weather turns out to be great, and if you enjoy beaches, then consider taking a bus to a beach like Platis Gialos for a few hours.

And if it turns out Mykonos just isn't your thing, take a shuttle bus or tender back to the ship and spend your time there.
