Getting Around Mykonos

There are many daily flights from Athens to Mykonos and the actual trip is less than 40 minutes. There are also direct charter flights from many European cities to Mykonos during the summer months. Daily ferries depart from the port of Piraeus stopping at Tinos and Syros islands prior to reaching Mykonos. Mykonos, because of its location in the centre of the Aegean sea, also has excellent ferry connections with other nearby islands. The best way to get around Mykonos is by motorbike or hire car.


Mykonos town is one of the best examples of Cycladic architecture. A maze of narrow alley ways and streets, whitewashed houses, red and blue roof top chapels and a number of well-preserved windmills give this town a unique character impossible to find anywhere else in the world. Mykonos is famous for its cosmopolitan feel and nightlife as well as its authentic cuisine. Its barren landscape against the blue sparkling sea and the numerous sandy beaches have attracted visitors for more than half a century. Visitor Attractions
