Mykonos New port (Tourlos)
Mykonos island is one of the most popular destinations in the Cyclades and can be approached by plane or ferry.
Mykonos has two ports: The Old Port which is in the Town of Mykonos (Chora) and the New Port at Tourlos region, which is the one operating with passenger ferries to Mykonos.
The New Port (Tourlos) is the main port of Mykonos and operates exclusively the typical passenger ferries. It is located 2km north from the Town of Mykonos. So, whether you are traveling from Athens ports (Piraeus, Rafina or Lavrio) or another island on a typical passenger ferry, you will arrive at, or depart from the New Port (Tourlos).
It is very common that hotels provide shuttle bus services. So, when booking your room confirm if they can pick you up from the Port.
During high season the Port can be very crowded and many ferry delays are inevitable.
During high season it is certain that there will be some traffic around the Port area. So be prepared and arrange your program accordingly.
