Mykonos in detail

Flights & getting there

Air

Mykonos Airport, 3km southeast of Hora, has flights year-round from Athens with Aegean and Olympic Air (who also offer seasonal flights from Thessaloniki). Numerous airlines offer seasonal flights from May to September, including Alitalia, British Airways, easyJet, Qatar Airways and Sky Express.

Transport Options

Buses run between Mykonos’ airport and Hora's Fabrika bus station (€2). Some hotels and guesthouses offer free airport and port transfers. Otherwise, arrange airport transfer with your accommodation (around €10) or take a taxi (around €15).

Boat

Year-round ferries serve mainland ports Piraeus (€40, five hours, up to three daily) and Rafina (€29 to €48, 2½ to 4½ hours, up to nine daily) – the latter is usually quicker if you are coming directly from Athens airport – and nearby Tinos (€8 to €15, 30 minutes, up to nine daily). In the high season, Mykonos is well connected with all neighbouring islands, including Syros (€20, 40 minutes, three daily), Naxos (€29 to €39, 30 minutes to 1¾ hours, up to 11 daily) and Santorini (€52 to €68, 1¾ to four hours, seven daily); see www.ferries.gr for detailed information. Hora is loaded with ticket agents.

Mykonos has two ferry quays: the Old Port, 400m north of town, where a couple of small fast ferries dock, and the New Port, 2km north of town, where the bigger fast ferries and all conventional ferries dock. When buying outgoing tickets, double-check which quay your ferry leaves from.

Excursion boats for Delos depart from the quay just off the waterfront at Hora.
