"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.

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.
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.
