Transportation from Mykonos airport
Depending on where you are staying in Mykonos, on the popular beaches or in town, there is a great bus system and enough taxis to take you around. You can also rent cars, 4-wheelers and motoscooters. The roads in Mykonos wind around the rocky terrain and are narrow to many foreigners. Travel time from Paradise Beach to Hora is about 20-25 minutes, so driving a motoscooter into town after the beach day partying and drinking has brought tourist vehicle accident fatalities to unfortunate high numbers. The best way to get around the Hora is by foot. Get lost in the cubic white maze and narrow walkways of town adorned with beautiful balconies and flowers hanging from the top.
