The best time to visit Mykonos is in September and October. During these two months, the weather is still warm and the water temperature is still perfect for swimming. July and August are known as the peak season when every corner of the island is permeated with vacationers, so if you are looking for a tranquil vacation it's best to avoid these two months.
Greece can be visited visa-free for up to 90 days by citizens of most European countries, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia, Israel, UAE and most countries in America. If you are unsure whether or not you need to apply for a visa, we recommend contacting the embassy or consulate in your country. International (non-Schengen) travellers need a passport that is valid for at least 3 months after the end of their intended trip in order to enter the Schengen zone. Citizens of Schengen countries can travel without a passport but must have a valid ID with them during their stay.
Mykonos has its own airport, direct flights are available from multiple European destinations. To travel the 4 km to town, use one of the taxis right outside the airport terminal or a pre-arranged transfer–some hotels pick up guests directly at the airport. Bus service to the city (southern bus station) is also available, but it is not frequent and runs on no definitive schedule.
There are two bus stations at the opposite ends of Mykonos Town–these are a 20-minute walk away from one another. Use the main station (Fabrica) to catch a bus to Paraga, Platys Gialos, Paradise, Agios Ioannis, and Ornos. The northern station serves Elia, Ano Mera, Panormos, and Kalafatis. Bus frequencies may vary depending on the time of year (more buses run during the high season); intervals are usually somewhere between 30 minutes and an hour. Tickets may be purchased from the driver directly or in advance at ticket machines and tourist shops.
Small fishing boats are an alternative means of transport–these circulate between the main beaches of the island.
Taxis in Mykonos are in high demand, and getting one in the high season might require some patience. Taxis can be hired in Manto Square (also referred to as the Taxi Square). There are usually fixed prices displayed inside the cabs for main destinations around the island, meters are normally not used. Ordering a taxi often comes at an extra charge.

Greece uses the Type F electrical plug with two round pins, same as in many countries in Continental Europe. The standard voltage is 230 volts, but some hotels have special plugs for 110 or 120-volt shavers.
