Mykonos is a favorite summer destination of people from all over the world. But as the summer months roll in, so do the throngs of tourists and cruises. With a limited amount of time on this magical island, it’s important to maximize your visit and not waste time navigating through lost tourists and tricky streets. Learn how to get around Mykonos like a local!


Buses in Mykonos

The bus is the most economical way to get around the island. For less than 2 Euro, you can take the bus to almost anywhere on the island. The bus station is called Fabrica and is located in town.


  • Take the bus to any beach
  • Less than 2 Euro


  • Usually only one bus an hour
  • To go from place to place, one must connect at Fabrica


Taxi’s are very limited on the island, and by very I mean, very. There are only ~30 taxi’s on the island and with the 15,000+ visitors on some summer days, that means cabs are hard to come by.


  • Direct service from anywhere on the island
  • Save time


  • Hard to find
  • Expensive
  • Usually need to call to find a cab

Water Taxi

Mykonos Water Taxi

  • Beach hop without having to go back to town
  • Easily skirt from beach to beach
  • ~4 Euro One-Way


  • Limited number of water taxi’s

ATV / Scooter

Get Around Mykonos on an ATV

Renting an ATV or a scooter is an economical and direct way to get around Mykonos. Want to hop from town to a beach, but don’t want to wait for public transportation? ATV’s and Scooters are a quick and easy way to get around. However, the streets are windy and can be dangerous, with lots of accidents occurring over the crowded summer months. If you’re going to rent an ATV or scooter, you should be a confident driver and take out insurance.


  • Economical
  • Direct


  • Windy, dangerous roads

Car Rental

Given the dangerous and windy roads of Mykonos, your safest bet for a self-hired rental is a car.


  • Safer than ATV’s
