Mykonos Island National Airport is a public airport that is located in the island of the same name, in the country of Greece. It is found some four kilometres away from the main town of Mykonos, and is considered as a tourist airport, since it is primarily busy during the summer months. On off-peak seasons, the airport has limited flight connections across the country, but during the peak times, flights from all over Europe come in to the airport.
Apart from its terminal, Mykonos Island National Airport has one asphalt runway that measures 6,244 feet or 1,903 metres long. It received at least 778,000 passengers in 2014, growing by at least 30 per cent from the previous year's numbers.
What to see & do
Mykonos Cyclades, or simply Mykonos, is considered as one of the more cosmopolitan spots in Greece, primarily because of its beaches, villages, and nightlife. It is often described as the Ibiza of Greece, a pretty spot that is more or less understated.
Little Venice – Literally a picture of Venice, Little Venice is known as the most picturesque quarter of Chora, the capital of Mykonos Island. It has colourful, postcard-worthy houses that are constructed right by the sea, and several avenues for nightlife, as well as lovely cafeterias. Eat some great Greek food here, and then go clubbing when the night falls.
The Windmills – Above Chora, the Mykonos Windmills are 'quintessential' features of the landscape, having been built since the early times. Mainly used for crushing agricultural yields, there were previously 16 operational windmills across the island of Mykonos. Although not functioning as of the moment, these snow-white, spherical pieces that are topped with the finest variety of wood are purposeful and at the same time pretty, a sure fire winner for an Instagram post.
Elia – Elia is a huge sandy beach that is located 10 kilometres from the capital. It is the longest sandy beach of Mykonos, with choice taverns, bars, and sports facilities available for the tourists' taking. It is the last stop of the traditional fishing boat called caique, which is now used as a ferry/taxi across the island, so it is slightly quieter. Apart from the beautiful beach, travellers may also check out the traditional Cycladean houses, which add nice touches to the area.
How to get around Mykonos
With a length of 12 to 15 kilometres and with a width of 10 kilometres, the island of Mykonos is one of the smallest islands of the Cyclades group. However, it is frequented by tourists, so there are at least two to three options as to how to get around here. There is a bus network that takes travellers around the island, with two bus stations on different sides of the same town. From the main station in Fabrica, buses can be taken for departures to various points, including Platys Gialos, Paraga, Ornos, and Agios Ioannis. Night buses are also available; however there are no bus connections between the two stations. There are also few but reliable taxis, with fixed prices for every destination. Do note of the prices and always ask first before riding. Cars and motorbikes can also be rented, and are suggested if planning on exploring the off-beaten track in the area. Boats are also available, and travellers may also try to explore the place by foot.
