How to get there

You can get to Mykonos by boat or high speed boat from the port of Piraeus or Rafina, or by plane from Athens and Thessaloniki, while most European airports have direct flights to the island. During your stay in Mykonos, you can move around by scooter, car, bus, taxi, as well as use the small boats conducting routes from beach to beach (sea taxis). We should note here that it is very hard to get a taxi from late in the afternoon to the first morning hours in July and August, so if you want to avoid waiting in line for one, it is better to rent your own means of transportation – a car or a scooter. There are two taxi stations in Mykonos; one in Manto square and one in Lakka, or Fabrika, where you will also find a bus station. Bus routes in Mykonos start every half hour from early in the morning to 1:30 am and service most districts and beaches on the island.
