Written by in , Comments Off on Ways to Stay Active On Mykonos While On Vacation

When it comes to traveling to Greek islands like Mykonos, most of us have this idea that we will spend plenty of time relaxing in the sun, seeing the sites, and enjoying the nightlife. However, these aren’t the only experiences you can have while visiting this island – you can have an active vacation, as well while also enjoying the island. Here’s a look at some of the ways that you can enjoy getting some physical activity while on the island:

Go Sailing or Boating

Another great way to stay active while on Mykonos is to go boating or sailing. However, keep in mind that you will get much better exercise if you are helping to sail or steer the boat itself. If sailing in particular is something that interests you, you might want to consider taking some lessons while you are on the island. It is fun to cruise around the waters of the island and see things from a different perspective.

Take a Walk or a Hike

No matter what kind of walking experience you want, it is possible to satisfy your urges while on Mykonos. Whether you get some exercise strolling through the streets or you prefer to do something a little more intense, there is something for you on this island. You can easily find hiking trails no matter where you are on the island. For advice on where to go, consider asking at your hotel. It is also possible to take walking or hiking tours of the island.

Go Diving or Snorkeling

If you would rather get your exercise in the water, consider diving or snorkeling. For snorkeling, all you need to do is bring your gear to any beach and you can have some fun swimming and looking underwater to see what you can find. Diving, however, is a little more complex. Consider heading to one of the island’s dive centers to take lessons, rent gear, and to hire a guide who will introduce you to all the best diving sites on the island. Dive centers can be found in the areas where there are some of great dives. This includes near Lia, Paradise Beach, and Kalafatis.

Participate in Water Sports

For a much different experience, you might want to consider enjoying water sports such as jet skiing, kite surfing, tubing, water skiing, and more. It is fairly easy to rent jet skis, for example, and use them to tour the waters around the island. When it comes to a sport such as jet skiing and kit surfing, however, you might want to take a few lessons before you begin to do it.

Go Horseback Riding

If you are looking to see the island in a different way, consider going horseback riding! There are some great opportunities to ride while on the island, and it is best to take a guided tour so that you can be paired with a great horse and shown all the best routes.

While on the island of Mykonos in Greece, these top things to do can help you stay active.
