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!

Yes, always stay aware of your surroundings!

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
 

Visit the folklore museum in Mykonos

The folklore museum is one of the best ways to get to know the culture and heritage of Mykonos. Personally I find it very important to get to know the culture of the places that you visit, it provides really great context to your present day visit of Mykonos and you will start to notice the remnants of the history in the present day architecture, music and food all across the island. This museum is located near the neighborhood of Kastro in Chora.

Passenger locator form

I have read PLF no longer required for Greece. Does this apply for Mykonos also ?

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!!
