What to do in a day!?

We will be in Mykonos for a day off a cruise ship. Looking for suggestions as things to do? we love the beach as well as sight seeing. Any suggestions for what to see and do as well as what would be the most beautiful beach choices. Also should we book excursions through the ship or are ther better options. Thanks, Travelman...

It sort of depends on how long you have in Mykonos, and where else you are going on your cruise. If you have just a day, you might spend the entire time in Hora (Mykonos town). It's by far the most cosmopolitan town in the Cyclades with lots to see, you can wander around all day. If you have all day plus into the evening, you might hit a beach during the day, and explore Hora in the evening. Famous beaches include Paradise and Super Paradise; my personal favorite is Elia; Platos Yialos and Ornos are close to Hora. If your cruise is taking you to other places with great beaches, then you might choose Hora. If you are just doing Hora, I would do it on your own and not use any guided tour through your boat. If you are visiting a beach, you might use transportation arranged through the boat since it will be smoother and quicker than going ashore and finding the local transportation. Another consideration, if you enjoy ancient ruins, is spending the day on Delos which is a nearby island. Probably your boat has trips to it, or you can go ashore and the boat leaves from the Old Port (directly in the middle of Hora waterfront) with departures throughout the morning and returning in the afternoon. Hope that helps.
