Even though so many of my friends have gone to Mykonos and they say the best things, one of the most common things I’ve heard about the island is that it’s so damn expensive. Is there anyway to visit Mykonos and have fun without breaking the bank? I would love to hear some tips from those that are seasoned traveler‘s to the island. I would love to visit at least once before I turn 30! Thanks Worldwide Greeks community!

Here are some ways to save money when traveling to Mykonos:

- Use an airbnb instead of a hotel.
- Go to a supermarket and make one or 2 meals a day and eat out only 1 time per day.
- Keep the souvenir buying to a minimum.
- Eat at smaller taverna not the very touristy restaurants.

I hope this helps and you make it to Mykonos!

If you think it's expensive then obviously you can afford it. So the answer is don't go!. Stay home.

So let's see if I can get you there to enjoy... You are under 30 so the Paradise Camping will suit you!
Paradise Beach
+30 2289 023459
Take a look, lots of young people... You don't have to party if you don't want to...It is big enough to do everything... Very cheap food all day, different buffet, Pizzas, Greek Food and lots and lots more...Next Door on the same beach is Tropicana, plenty going on there, great cheap abundance Food and drinks..
Next the bus services are cheap and very frequent from there so no need to worry about getting into town... about going to other beaches.... take the fishing boat transfers which connect with other beaches...If you get bored just walk over to PARANGA (another Camping there too!) beach behind Paradise Camping,if you get bored there just walk over to Platis Yalos, plenty to do there, water sports etc...I don't know if there's still anyone doing Beach BBQ excursions anymore....I will check for you....I am writing this impulsively so more later... Which months are you planning to go? Depending how you travel there are people selling rooms at the port...all friendly and will also provide transportation...

These are all some great tips! It's definitely possible to save money. Besides what is listed here, you can also save by going to a store and buying some of your own alcohol to enjoy while at your hotel or Air B n B, or even at the beach or something. Alcohol can get expensive. It also helps if you start making Greek friends while traveling, because they you can do a lot of things with them, and they know about all of the great local hangouts, which tend to be less expensive. It's all about knowing where to go!
 

Favorite Beaches on Mykonos

I know that people have mixed feelings about the beaches of Mykonos, but I plan to go this year. I've been in the past and wanted to share my three favorites:

1. Elia Beach​

  • Elia is the longest sandy beach in Mykonos, offering a less crowded experience. It's ideal for those who want to relax and enjoy crystal-clear waters.
  • Tip: Try the water sports facilities there — I don't enjoy it but my family members report that this is fun. They've rented jet skis.

2. Paradise Beach​

  • As the name suggests, Paradise Beach is lovely. It's known for the party scene, but during the day it isn't bad. They just play DJ music while you're at the beach, and there's a lively bar.
  • Note: Leave before the evening parties start if that's not your scene. I love the energy during the day but I have to be in the mood for the music.

3. Psarou Beach​

  • Psarou might allure you with its upscale vibe and excellent beachside services. It's all about luxury yachts, boutique shops, and high-end dining.
  • Recommendation: Don't miss the opportunity to snorkel in these beautiful waters. It's very serene here in general.

Getting Around on Mykonos

I was in a Mykonos last year as a cruise stop, and I found trying to figure out how to get around to be very annoying. I couldn't find the bus stops, I didn't know how to buy a ticket, I had a hard time finding a bathroom on the way to the bus stop I finally figured out I needed.

I thought I would do some research. What could I have done differently? I found this video to be very helpful.

A historical excursion of Mykonos!

I haven't read anywhere as accurate and superbly presented article of Mykonos as this one!......I love the bit which reads "It was, however during these times a rather poor island with limited agricultural resources "😂😂.... only now it is the most priciest rock in the world!..... costing upwards€25,000 per sq metre.....and as far as I know from a few years back....the requirements to build a house was 4000 sq metres!.....and business development over 10,000 Sq metres..... Enjoy reading this...
I used a lot of information on my Guided Island Tours of Mykonos...so the history and facts are accurate!A pleasure to post this for readers to enjoy having lived and worked in Tourism Industry for many years!❤️❤️Saga poh Mykonou mu!❤️

Mykonos: Nammos Suspended!

Events unfolding rapidly in crackdowns after many years of irregular activities.I don't agree with the Police patrolling the narrow streets of Mykonos for noise levels from the bars in the video which I saw yesterday, felt quite saddened when at this time of the year it is so very nice to browse around Matoyianni with all the lovely shops and boutiques instead of 6-8 police walking up and down these beautiful narrow streets!... They begin to take away sound systems from the bars!
