Fantastic nightlife in Mykonos Town
5 / 5 stars Rate:

Category: Mykonos General


Nationality: British
Age: 30
Countries visited: 1-5
The Trip: I arrived on Mykonos island by Plane and Boat with Lufthansa and Sea Jet 2. The trip was very good with no delays. Definitely worth getting the speed boats as they are reliable. The slower ferries are always delayed!
Reasons for going to Mykonos: Recommended by friends
Idea about Mykonos before arriving: Thought it was going to be an over-touristed tacky resort with clubs and bars lining the beaches and towns. Never expected it to be a beautiful, fairly unspoilt island! MykonosTown is gorgeous and well worth visiting for it's jewelery and clothes shops alone. Lots of designer wear and many fantastic restaurants to suit all wallets. Bars in Little Venice are particularly nice

Opinion about Travel and Transportation:

Nationality: USA
Countries visited: 10-15
The trip: I arrived on the Mykonos by plane with the Alitalia and by boat with the Hellenic Seaways Highspeed 5. The trip was very good with no delays. Flight out of Barcelona and boat departing Piraeus
Reasons for going to Mykonos: Proposed by friends
Idea about Mykonos before arriving: After booking trip to Mykonoswe discovered more and more information on it being a top gay destination. That wasn't exactly what we were looking for, but we went anyway and we were presently surprised that it fact it wasn't that at all. Sure there are plenty of gays around but you can say that about anywhere, and plus it's Greece, so there you go. Everything else was not what I expected at all. Beaches were beautiful as were the people. Food, unfortunately did not meet my expectations as there are many good restaurants and just as many bad ones. It's hard to distinguish between the two until you actually sit down and eat. Everything else was just like the travel books told me. Hot sunny and really windy and a nightlife unparallel anywhere else
Favorite Activities:
Best Beaches on Mykonos : Paradise, Gialos
Best Activity : Renting scooters to tour the island
Best Bar/Pub/Club : Club Paradise
Negative opinion about the island: Nothing negative

The trip: I got to Mykonos Island by plane (Easy Jet) and then by boat (high speed). The trip was good. There were some delay on the boat.

Reasons for going to Mykonos: This year I choose to come to Greece and more particular on Mykonos because it was recommended to me by friends.

Idea before arriving: I heard a lot from my friends and knew that it is a beautiful island with great weather, great beaches and great parties. I thought that it would be more busy but it was early in the season.

Expectations and opinions: Yes, it met my expectations. It is a nice island.

- Island/area: 8/10

- Landscapes: 6/10

- Tree Covered: 1/10

- Beaches & waters: 8/10

- Cleanliness: 8/10

- Villages: 8/10 Main Town: 8/10 Only one village but so beautiful?

- Food/ restaurants: 2/10 Overprised!!!

- Nightlife: 8/10 A great choice of bars and clubs. Unfortunately the ambiance was not really there as it was too early in the season, I suppose

- Local people: 8/10 People are very friendly and always do their best to help you.

- Accommodation: 8/10 Our hotel was very comfortable and clean. Nice pool

- Activities 6/10 Excursions 5/10 Sightseeing: 7/10 We went to Delos and it was really interesting. But except from Delos there are no other opportunities for excursions

- Prices: 0/10 Very expensive!!

- Public Transportations: -/10 Never Used

- Authenticity 6/10

Favorite thing about Mykonos: I really enjoyed the calm of the island.

My favorite beach is Elia, my favorite village is Agios Stefanos and the best activity we had was motorcycling. I don?t have any bike in Poland and really enjoyed it!

Negative opinion: The prices are very high. Especially the food! It was also very difficult to find authenticity. Mykonos is a huge tourist industry. The manage to keep it well preserved and beautiful with the feeling to be in a village.

Recommendations: Just go there! If you want to relax you will find quiet places. If you are a party animal, you will find a lot of bars and clubs. If you like the good food and wine, there is a large choice of greek and international cuisine. But in all cases, take with you a lot of money. And go to Delos.



I will definitely go back to Mykonos. Next time I would love to see it in full season in order to see the ambiance.

The trip: By ferry

Reasons for going to Mykonos: It was part of a package tour.

Idea before arriving: I heard that it was a gay party town but this hasn't been too evident. Also heard that the island was very busy.

Expectations and opinions: It exceeded my expectations. I enjoyed much the landscapes, the beautiful town, the party atmosphere, the incredible beaches and the many watersports offered. It is really a good island. Very crowded but it was not a problem. Met a lot of people there.

Favorite thing about Mykonos: The watersports at the beaches.

Negative opinion: Some operators and shop people have been a bit rude at times. I don't get it. Aren't they suppose to earn there money from us? They should really care about their attitudes and become more professional. Some times the natural beauty of the island of not enough!

Recommendations: Just visit the island!



Yes, I will definitely go back to Mykonos Island. I just visited a few islands of Greece but Mykonos was really great. Many people of my age and a holiday atmosphere.

Something like Ibiza but expensive

Nationality: German

Age: 32



The trip: The trip to Mykonos Island was fine. It took me 3 hours from Germany.

Reasons for going to Mykonos: We heard that Mykonos was nearly like Ibiza. We love the kind of lifestyle in Ibiza so we wanted to try something else. And we had never been to Greece before...

Idea before arriving: We hoped to see a lot of lovely beaches. And we looked forward to meet a lot of funny, stylish people.

Expectations and opinions: 100% ! It is a really great island with lot of fun. A lot of show off also but that is the same in all the cosmopolitan places, I supopose. I loved the fact that the island is so small. Everything there is in small proportion with little houses in narrow alleys. It is really charming. The town is very nice and much to do. The beaches are also of great beauty but very crowded in the afternoons. I suppose that the beaches be empty in the mornings but difficult to go there after a long night dancing.

The island is really great but very expensive.

Favorite thing about Mykonos: The town. It is like a labyrinth surrounded by beautiful Cycladic architectural samples. Lot of animation there. Very crowded at night.

Negative opinion: It is far too expensive. Even the price for the rental of an umbrell and a sunbed.

Recommendations: Just go there.



We don't know yet if we are going to return to Mykonos. We will see in the futur. I am in love with Ibiza and I will definitely fo back there for next summer. After that we will see.
