I have not heard anything specific about if Mykonos Greece is any less safe than any other major travel destination in Europe.

After a bit of research, here are a few other sources that might help:



I hope you have a safe and great time in Mykonos!

I have also seen many women traveling alone, I have not spoken to them though. But I think that it's a good sign

I have seen women traveling along all over Greece. Just be careful of pickpockets but other than that, Greeks are very hospitable and they may even go out of the way to look after a solo traveler.

A very strange question.....In my life having lived there many years working in Tourism industry I have yet to find any negative comments about this.This summer just gone there was a female "Solo traveler" who asked the similar question on TripAdvisor (she had 2 previous forum posts to her name!!!!!)..... None of us bothered to respond such questions....My answer would be "Don't go"!!..... Kalley Mera!

It seems to me that Mykonos is very safe, but I imagine it's just like anywhere else that we need to keep our eyes open!

Yup people who are observant and keep their eyes open are better off and can more easily stay safe. Most people who want to do something, like pick pocket, look for the clueless ones who aren't paying attention to their wallets, purses, or environments...

This is true, there is not a lot of violence in Greece that you can get in the way of like in other countries. There aren't a lot go guns either

Most people are poor and looking for money, not to harm you, at least from what I've heard
 

Mykonos live Webcam.... Enjoy!❤️

Just behind the windmills is where I parked my car every morning before walking down the hill to Little Venice to the Delos Port!❤️❤️

Mykonos at night is stunning!

Mykonos is definitely the island that has the best nightlife and has the best atmosphere at night. This is one of my favorite pictures from the island at night :)

A walking tour in Mykonos town (Hora)

Now this makes me reminiscent,as we were the pioneers back in 1998 in formulating the itinerary.We always used to end the tour in a bar watching the sunset, famous pianist playing soft Jazz tunes. ❤️❤️....

Some very nice images of Delos !
