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!
 

Is Mykonos noisy at night?

Don't get me wrong, I am super excited to see all of the nightlife in Mykonos when I visit this summer, but I am a little concerned about the noise level at night past 2 am. Is it still noisy at this time? I don't stay out too too late, and I would love to be able to get some sleep after I come back home from the day. What is everyones experience? And is every area noisy? Or is the nightlife located in a central place that is easy to avoid when booking a hotel? Thank you in advance!!

If any one in Mykonos wants to taste authentic Greek food don't forget to go to Oregano....I know the Phedhia from the 90s.... this is where all the Tourism Industry professionals and palikaria go .... very cheap..... very generous.....and super atmosphere especially at Football and Basketball games!!!.....Say Yasou apo mena to Maria from me...

Massive "Odyssey of the Seas" Cruises in Mykonos!

How much money do you think that 24 hours in Mykonos costs?

Mykonos is one of those Greek islands that just can't escape its reputation of being expensive. I love this video because it gives you an honest look at how expensive the island can actually be. As always, take it with a grain of salt because you can truly make anything affordable in Greece by being smart and planning ahead.
