Ahhh… Mykonos, the “party island”. And I do mean party! But Mykonos is also known for its fabulous beaches as it’s less cliffy than Santorini. The shopping is amazing from Designer shops like Louis Vuitton and Chanel to locals selling their wares. There’s even a Sephora! But there is definitely a lot more to this fabulous island. What is fun about Mykonos is that there is a lot more hustle and bustle, particularly in Mykonos Town, like Old Port and Little Venice. The beaches here have soft, golden sand, but can be very crowded in July and August. And beware of the cost of chaise lounge rentals ranging from $30.00 to $80.00 USD to rent a chair!
It’s easier to get around Mykonos because most of the attractions are all closer to each other, such as the old port and the popular beaches. Public buses are the best way to get around costing approximate $2.00 to any destination. The buses area very nice like charter buses so they are very comfortable. You can rent scooter and atvs if you are adventurous. I have to say that a lot of hotels near Mykonos town are situated high and require walking once the bus drops you off as buses cannot go up the narrow road leading to your fabulous hotel. I recommend taxis if you are not fit, older or too drunk or tired to walk the hill.
