More Delos
tips and insights


If you're fit, climb the steps up to the 112-meter (368-foot) high Mt. Kynthos' summit for a view of the Delos ruins below you. In the distance is the Greek Island Mykonos, one of the most popular destinations in Greece

Getting there

You can reach Delos, Greece in under 30 minutes via small tourist boats from Mykonos. There's also service from the more distant Greek Islands of Naxos, Paros and Tinos.

Choppy sea

Be aware that it can be rather windy in this part of Greece. This could create a choppy sea, creating an uncomfortable passage. Sometimes the waves are so rough that boat trips from nearby Mykonos are cancelled.

More pointers



Delos has no accommodations -
it's strictly a daytrip affair.


Bring a hat

Delos's landscape is barren. The sun is relentless and shade is rare.
