Transportation To/From Mykonos Port to Gialos Beach.

I will be going to Mykonos in two weeks as part of a cruise trip. Princess is charging us about $80 just to go and return on a bus to Platys Gialos Beach. We would like to know how much it would cost just to rent a taxi to get there and back to the port.

It will be a heckuva lot cheaper to take a taxi! Can't give you an exact fare --and the taxis have meters, anyways -- but I estimate it would cost around €15 each way.

Keep in mind that there are only three dozen taxis on the entire island, and that you will be visiting during peak travel season. The taxis will be in high demand and you could have to wait to get one in either direction.

The alternative is to take the cruise ship's shuttle buses to Mykonos Town, walk through Town to the Fabrica bus depot, and catch one of the regular buses to Platis Gialos (and take a bus back).

Thank you so much. We are going to check into the taxi and shuttle and buses as a back up. We are also stopping at Corfu, Katakolon, Pireaus(Athens) and Santorini. Any other suggestions? We are leaving Toronto soon. R

in mykonos take the cruise ship shuttle to town (if they go to fabrika at the top of town then great) local bus there to pl. yialos for about 3 euros or so return.

taxis also go from there...i would think about 10-15 euros?

other great beaches are agrari (taxi only) and elia...

you can rent quad bikes if you feel you can do that (easy imho) and drive yourself, lots of fun, you need d/licence

in corfu, there are good buses near the port.

go to kalami bay or kassiopi...

katakolon is for Olympia but the little town has nice tavernas just for a

chill and lunch...

santorini

the boat trip is great and they visit oia on that usually too.

thira is abit mad in high season

athens...maybe take a ferry to agistri or aegina for the day?
