If you love walking around picturesque streets surrounded by blue and white-washed houses, Mykonos Chora is the ideal place for you! Since motorized traffic is forbidden on town’s streets, a walking tour is a must thing to do in Mykonos.
Getting around Mykonos by bus
The bus network is the best way to get around on Mykonos. On Mykonos town, there are two bus stations, the main southern bus station of Fabrika that serves the bus routes to Platis Gialos, Paraga, Paradise, Ornos and Agios Ioannis and the northern bus station, near the old port that connects the town with Ano Mera, Elia, Panormos, and Kalafatis. The bus tickets price varies from €1.60 to €2.80 depending on the destination and tickets can be bought inside the bus by the bus driver. Alternatively, you can buy a bus ticket at kiosks, mini-markets tourist shops and also, from a vending machine at bus stations.
Getting around Mykonos by taxi
Since the number of taxis doesn’t exceed 30, it is almost impossible to find a free cab, primarily, in high season. There are two taxis stands on Mykonos town, the main near the old port, next to the northern bus station and the second one next to the southern bus station. Taxis are waiting also at the New Port when the ferries or cruise ships arrive, but you should be really quick to catch one. Taxi drivers use a taximeter so the cost depends on the route distance, but in general, the taxi fares are fixed for specific destinations.
Getting around Mykonos by water-taxi
Water taxis are very popular on Mykonos. Travelers choose this way of transportation, especially to get to some of the most beautiful beaches of Mykonos island to the south, such as Paradise, Super Paradise, Agrari, Elia. They usually start from Ornos or Platis Gialos from 10:00 to 22:00 every day.
Renting a car/quad, motorbike or bike
If you are the type of person looking for off beaten places on Mykonos island, renting your personal vehicle is the best choice for you. You can explore remote beaches that are not accessible by the local buses services and get the most of Mykonos! Most of the car rental companies are located at the airport, around the area of the southern bus station and near the old port.
