This is the highest point on Delos Island so of course there has been a temple on top. It is ruins now but there is a fantastic view on the top of all the Island.

It takes about 45 minutes to hike to the top and back and it's totally worth it. The top gives 360 views of the island and the Agean Sea. The steps are steep in certain parts and can be a little slippery. Wear comfortable shoes.

Delos is a fantastic treasure to explore. Climbing Mount Kynthos is not easy. Wear comfortable And secure shoes. Once you reach the top you are rewarded with a beautiful view. Coming down is not easy either.

The highest point of Delos. Nice little climb. There is not much left from the Zeus sanctuary, but the view is one for the gods.

The views from the top are amazing - there is nothing as blue as the Aegean Sea - you can't really imagine how spectacular it is until you see if from here. However, unless you are physically incredibly superfit and can almost sprint to the...More

We nearly missed the boat by going up Mt Kynthos a bit late ..... There is little at the top oyther than the sense of accomplishment and a reasonable view

Long way up and very windy, but you can see for miles once up there! Don't think any of the tour group will go up here, so go solo if you're thinking about it. Great views all the way back to Mykonos. If you have...More
