Getting to Mykonos village - Mykonos transportation

"There are a few options cruisers have when it comes to getting to Mykonos village..."



Getting downtown when on a Mykonos cruise is pretty simple: if your ship tenders into Hora Mykonos town, then you will be dropped off straight downtown… just a few steps away from the bars, restaurants and all the shopping.

If your ship docks in the New Port of Mykonos, which is about 1.2 miles away from the Mykonos village, you have a few options:

  • 1) Most people will choose to take a cruise ship organized shuttle bus from the cruise ship dock to the big parking lot at the beginning of the village.

Some cruise lines will charge for this service while others may not, you will have to inquire about that once you’re onboard.

The ride to the village takes about 5-10 minutes.

From where you get dropped off, walk towards the village waterfront and then up into the labyrinth streets of Hora Mykonos town that hide more restaurants, boutiques, art galleries, boutique hotels and bars.

We suggest this option only if you’re headed to the beach.

In Mykonos town itself you will not need any kind of motorized transportation as it’s one big pedestrian area.

Keep in mind that you are renting a scooter/car at your own risk and cruise lines don’t really encourage that option for your own safety.

  • 3) Walking to Mykonos village, if your ship docks, is not a good idea either. You would waste a lot of time, get to the village all sweaty and tired and there is the safety factor too… the road you would be walking on is shoulder-less so you have a steep ravine on one side and crazy Greek drivers on the other! ☺

  • 4) Finding a taxi at the Mykonos port cruise dock is equal to a miracle. Taxis in Mykonos can almost be counted on the fingers of one hand, so don’t expect to see one, especially in the high season.

If you are planning to head to the beach straight from the cruise dock and you’re hoping to find a taxi to give you a lift, you’ll have to find a different solution.
