Bus

The KTEL Mykonos bus network has two main terminals plus pick-up points at the Old and New Ports.

Low-season services are much reduced, but buses in high season run frequently; the fare is €1 to €2 depending on the distance travelled. Timetables are on the website. In July and August, some bus services run until 2am or later from the beaches.

Terminal A, the southern bus station, known as Fabrika, serves Ornos and Agios Ioannis Beach, Platys Gialos, Paraga and Super Paradise Beaches.

Terminal B, the northern bus station, sometimes called Remezzo, is behind the OTE office and has services to Agios Stefanos via Tourlos, Ano Mera, and Kalo Livadi, Kalafatis and Elia beaches. Buses for Tourlos and Agios Stefanos stop at the Old and New Ports.

A regular bus connects the New Port with the southern bus station, and there are buses running between the southern bus station and the nearby airport. In summer there’s a bus to Paradise Beach from the Old Port.

Private transfer buses operate in summer’s peak every hour (11am to 11pm) from the Old Port to Paradise Beach (via Fabrika). There are also frequent shuttles to Super Paradise Beach.

Car & Motorcycle

Cars start at €45 per day in high season and €30 in low season. Scooters/quads are around €20/40 in high season and €15/30 in low season.

Avis and Sixt are among the agencies at the airport, and there are dozens of hire places all over the island, particularly near the ports and bus stations (which is where the large public car parks are found – you can’t drive into Hora proper). You can rent from Mykonos Accommodation Centre.
