"There are a few options cruisers have when it comes to getting to Mykonos village..."
Getting from the port to Mykonos village or town 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 windmills, Little Venice, bars, restaurants, fantastic shopping and all the other attractions.
If your cruiseship docks in the New Port of Mykonos, which is about 1.2 miles away from Mykonos town, you have a few options:
As there aren't really things to do near Mykonos cruise port, you will want to get to the village/town.
Most people will choose to take a cruise ship organized shuttle bus from the cruise ship dock (outside the village) to the big parking lot at the outskirts 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 (4-5 minutes) and then up into the labyrinth streets that hide restaurants, boutiques, art galleries, boutique hotels and bars and more things to do in the main town of Mykonos.
You can rent a scooter/car right across the street from the Mykonos port cruise dock.
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.
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.
You can read more about how to do it in our article on Getting to Mykonos beaches.
