Delos improved! Now you can go 'everyday' to the sacred island of Delos 'from' Mykonos, even on Mondays, which have always been closed. Plus, the ferries added a new time of 20:00 as the last trip leaving Delos, so you can experience this mega historic sanctuary 7 days a week and stay later/longer to explore the ancient city and archaeological museum. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is a must see when in Mykonos.
Now cruise ship passenger, who have had difficulty for years due to the restrictive opening hours and days that didn't coincide with their short visit to the Mykonos port of call can now experience this mega historical place. The Greek Govt has decided, thankfully, to let us all into Delos, one of the most important archaeological locations in all of Greece, and explore the myriad of excavations. The island had been totally off limits to the public at night but now you can be there, enjoy the sunset, and leave at 20:00 (8:00 pm)
From Tuesday through Sunday, ferries will depart Mykonos as usual at 9, 10 and 11 a.m. and return as usual at 12:15, 1:30, and 3 p.m. The big change is that a late afternoon/early evening return trip has been added to the roster — a ferry will depart Mykonos at 5 p.m. and return from Delos at 8 p.m. Great news for the Mediterranean cruisers as they had a hard time catching the early morning ferries. Great thinking by the Greek government. It's wonderful to have another option of sleeping in and STILL experiencing Delos, if you are staying in Mykonos and partaking in the famed night life the morning departures
Note: always wise to double check the times. Ferry trips: from Mykonos at 10 am and 5 Pm and returning from Delos at 1:30 and 8 Pm.
